Every Virtual Desktop Deserves the Ultimate Endpoint – Secure and Rich UX

As IGEL Velocity Experts & Citrix Platinum partners Enterprise Solutions know why IGel & Citrix work so well together.

What makes IGEL OS & Citrix the winning combination?

Citrix and IGEL solutions complement business goals, as they lead to:

  • Nimble remote office or hybrid working solution deployment

  • Enhances workspace virtualization and digital transformation projects

  • Cloud adoption acceleration

  • RoI assistance by extending the life endpoints bought during pandemic

  • Create IT helpdesk & administrative efficiencies

  • Reduce endpoint management and patching routines

  • IT Budget assisted with cost-efficiencies

IGEL allows remote workforces to thrive whilst giving organisations a platform they can fully manage & secure.

Strong technology integrations between the Citrix Cloud, Workspace App, and IGEL OS allow organizations and their people to embrace the new way to work, and realize a range of benefits.

Partnership

IGEL OS and the Citrix Workspace App comprise a “perfect pair”, The Workspace App establishes and secures the end-user’s virtual session, and IGEL OS serves as the ideal lightweight, secure, and easily managed operating system for accessing the Citrix Workspace. IGEL OS is built specifically to support and in lockstep with the latest version of Citrix Workspace App. Purpose built for enterprise access to virtual environments, IGEL OS is the next generation edge OS for Citrix cloud-delivered digital workspaces.

Cost Effective

Citrix and IGEL OS allow you to lower capital expenditures IGEL OS removes the need for hardware refresh cycles and replaces it with incredible efficiency allowing older endpoint devices to run the latest version of Citrix. Both reduce CapEx via subscription-based licencing. Deliver the same experience to affordable thin clints or low-spec laptops. And it reduces on-going management & operating expenses of traditional end-points.

User Experience

The same UX is achieved on any end-point suiting hybrid working styles. And ensuring users are productive as they are always presented a simple, easy-to-use, familiar interface.

Faster logins,  faster app loading, better performance in queries & faster database lookup are achieved by moving workloads from endpoint to the cloud or data centre.

Less end-point issues experienced and less disruptive updates required.

Enterprise Level Security

The Citrix Workspace App can lock down local drive access, screen sharing, and portable storage access with precision, all while safeguarding the data you have in the cloud or data center. Not located on physical endpoints, the data on the Citrix workspace App is stored centrally. Read only, modular IGEL OS supports trusted execution, smart card readers, and two-factor authentication. Additionally, its end-to-end “chain of trust” leads to great confidence in knowing that system integrity is verified from device start-up to application.

Ease of Management

IGEL allows IT to create, deploy, and manage secure digital workspaces with apps and data to their end-users from a single console.

IT admins can extend existing on-premises software deployments by connecting to resources on any cloud or infrastructure.

IGEL OS has drag & drop simplicity.

The need for remote Windows updates is eliminated.

IT can manage, migrate and scale with ease at a pace that suits them.

IT Teams have control of end points e.g. Security updates are easily deployed.

Efficiency

In addition to ensuring highly efficient access to dedicated virtual desktops, the Citrix Workspace also allows seamless access to virtual apps known as “pooled” digital resources.

Sustainability

As an extremely lean and efficient purpose-built operating system, IGEL OS places a minimal burden on available CPU and memory resources.  As a result, it offers much greater performance “headroom” which maps to more efficient everyday operation and a better user experience.  This increased efficiency means current devices use less energy, and potentially smaller, less energy-hungry endpoints, such as thin clients, can be used instead.  By virtue of much more energy-efficient operation across many endpoints, organizations can contribute greatly to any “green” sustainability goals.

Why IGEL + Citrix?

For over three decades Citrix has helped thousands of IT teams stay ahead of evolving demands. Its agile and reliable virtualization technology and cloud services simplify IT management and increase security— all while creating a seamless user experience.
