IGEL Technology Adds Support for Windows 10 Devices to Unified Management Agent

An extension of IGEL’s industry-leading Universal Management Suite (UMS), the software provides secure and centralized management of Microsoft® Windows 10 mobile and desktop workspaces 

IGEL Technology, a world leader in the development of powerful workspace management software, software-defined thin clients, and thin and zero client solutions, today announced that the IGEL Unified Management Agent (UMA), first introduced in November 2015, now supports Microsoft® Windows® 10 mobile and desktop workspaces.

“Managing an organization’s endpoints and executing software updates and patch management for notebook computers and desktop workstations can be time consuming, even for the most seasoned IT pros,” said Gary Sharp, Sales Director for North America, IGEL Technology. “IGEL’s UMA, along with our entire suite of modern workspace management solutions, reduces the burden on IT organizations by providing them with the ability to permanently standardize the remote management of their virtual and cloud desktops, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Client as a Service (ClaaS) infrastructure, regardless of the desktop configuration scenario.”

IGEL UMA and the IGEL Managed Workspace

Operating as an extension of IGEL’s industry-leading UMS software, the IGEL UMA makes integrated management of virtual, cloud and desktop environments possible, providing secure and centralized remote management of thin clients, desktop computers and notebooks running Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7, the IGEL Linux operating system, and now Windows 10.

Furthermore, with the IGEL UMA, there is no need to modify or convert an existing Windows operating system, as it can be installed directly on endpoint devices, which can then be conveniently administered by the IT organization via the IGEL UMS.

Some of the key workspace management capabilities offered by the IGEL UMA include:

  • VDI session support for Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp, VMware Horizon and Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP);
  • Modification and configuration of Internet Explorer, user interface and network settings, printer management and selected security and systems management functions within Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating systems;
  • VNC remote assistance for support and helpdesks, which is available free of charge via the IGEL UMS;
  • Sophisticated and secure shadowing (VNC) including logging and the group-based allocation of rights; and,
  • Easy configuration of Windows firewall and routing settings within the network options.

Availability and Support

A subscription to the IGEL UMA is available now through Authorized IGEL Partners in North America. The IGEL UMA can be installed automatically using Active Directory, manually using and executable file, or using software packaging and distribution via third-party software. For more information on pricing, contact an Authorized IGEL Partner, or e-mail info@igel.com. IGEL UMS software is available free of charge at www.myigel.com.
