IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, announced support for VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux, which facilitates communication between IGEL OS-powered devices and the Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) console.
As a result, mutual VMware and IGEL customers can simplify device management from a single view for greater visibility and compliance of devices across the enterprise.
“With the development of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux, VMware has affirmed its view of the importance of Linux devices at the endpoint,” said Bill McCarthy, vice president, Business Development, IGEL. “This is another landmark step in our strategic journey to deliver greater integration for VMware Horizon users as they leverage the anywhere workspace for a productive and engaging user experience.”
Thousands of IGEL customers use IGEL OS to access VMware Horizon desktops and workloads every day. The expansion of the partnership extends the value of Workspace ONE to include IGEL OS endpoints, regardless of where they are located.
VMware Vice President of Product Management, End-User Computing Jason Roszak said, “Linux devices are a strategic component in the fabric of today’s enterprise environments and we are excited to empower customers that have embraced IGEL OS with a simple and more secure solution to manage their apps and devices in a single view. Using Workspace ONE Intelligence and data aggregation, our mutual customers can better manage enterprise complexity and security without compromising on user experience.”
Support for the VMware Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux will be available as a custom partition which can be deployed to IGEL OS devices allowing them to be enrolled into Workspace ONE. This enables IGEL OS and Workspace ONE to offer management capabilities that include asset management and insights for IT productivity and compliance processes.
The two companies also are collaborating on cloud connector technology for IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) and VMware Workspace ONE UEM which will deliver increased management insights and policy-based control for VMware Horizon and IGEL users.
