What You Need to Know about IGEL Secure Endpoint Capabilities | Hogan

We’re several months into a global pandemic, and many organizations are searching for long-term remote work solutions to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Many Hogan clients want to remain flexible by allowing their employees to work remotely from their own devices. These companies are turning to IGEL’s Secure Endpoint solution to ensure company information is protected and technology policies are respected.

Let’s walk through how this technology can be a win-win for companies and their employees. Watch Hogan CEO Mike Hogan use IGEL Secure Endpoint from home

What Does IGEL Secure Endpoint Do?

Many employees work from an unknown endpoint at home. They need to have access to all the corporate resources while also protecting and securing the company’s information. The Secure Endpoint device allows you to decide what software and information is accessible on your employees’ personal computers.

IGEL’s secure endpoint device is plugged right into the device’s USB port. It boots the machine directly to the IGEL Workspace through a USB key, which provides several advantages.

The first time an employee uses a new device with this USB key, they will see your preconfigured IGEL Workspace options. Your employees will have access to locally embedded applications like web browsers, and all the programs they need to work from home – or from anywhere! The programs run just the same as they would at the office, and programs like Microsoft Teams can even be run natively on the computer instead of through a remote session.

If your organization has programs that can only be accessed inside the corporate environment, remote employees can also have access to virtual solutions like Citrix Cloud, VMware WorkspaceOne and Microsoft WVD. This allows them to get into corporate programs securely from home.

Who Can Use IGEL’s Secure Endpoint?

One great thing about this device is its adaptability; nearly any organization will be able to use it to create a remote workspace solution. It is fast, cost-effective, and above all, secure. IGEL’s device can be configured for single or multi-monitor use on any desktop, laptop, or 2-in-1 tablet regardless of its operating system. That means Mac users are welcome, too.

Through their UDPocket, employees can access all the programs they need to complete day-to-day tasks without compromising security. Using the IGEL Secure Endpoint solution, your organization can take an unknown device, make it completely secure, and enforce your organization’s technology policies on it even when it’s not a managed device that you control.

If your organization is looking for a longer-term solution that allows employees to work from home on their own devices, the IGEL Secure Endpoint may be the solution.
