Ransomware, data theft, industrial espionage – rarely a week goes by without another scary IT security story. Unsurprisingly, there are many security vendors that seem to say: ‘Buy our range of products, and your worries will be over’. At IGEL we know that real-world IT is not as simple as that.

Together with our technology partners we can even lock the screen when the user removes their proximity card.

Passwords usually also protect the desktop services that are used on thin clients. Make this protection much stronger by using two-factor authorization (2FA): Combining a password with a second factor such as a smartcard, e-token or RFID card. IGEL OS offers many options for this.
