IGEL OS 12 is supported by: 

  1. IGEL Cloud Service
    • IGEL App Portal which includes Citrix Workspace App 
    • IGEL Onboarding Service for rapid, no-touch onboarding by the end-user
    • IGEL Licensing Portal to manage IGEL licenses and subscriptions
    • IGEL Insight Service to improve the user experience
    • And more 
  2. IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS)


The advantages of IGEL OS Secure Endpoint Platform include:

  • Endpoint Security
    With IGEL OS, the operating system is separate from the applications and cloud services. This shrinks the attack surface on each endpoint. With the IGEL App Portal, the latest apps and security patches are available as soon as issued by the technology partner.
  • Increased Flexibility and Efficiency
    The IGEL App Portal features the latest applications from Citrix and other technology solutions from IGEL's ecosystem of 100+ technology partners. The end-user can update the latest Citrix Workspace App from the App Portal with user rights granted by the IT admin. This avoids delays, and the disruption of the typically rigid firmware release and scheduled update process.
  • Rapid Zero Touch Onboarding
    With IGEL Onboarding Service the end-user can onboard to their company workspace in a few simple steps with their assigned company email and password. User permissions and policies can be set in advance by IT according to their role, location, and assigned rights. 
  • Insights Improve User Experience
    The IGEL Insight Service collects usage and analytical data of the IGEL endpoint with end-user permission to identify performance issues and enables IT teams to pinpoint areas to improve.
