IGEL, a provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, is announcing that it has been named by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, as a finalist in the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. IGEL UD Pocket2 was recognized in the “Virtualization – Apps/ Desktop” category.
This annual awards program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and ability to address customer and partner needs.
“The UD Pocket2 features a 2-in-1 design that transforms endpoints with either with USB Type-A and USB Type-C interfaces into a IGEL OS-powered endpoint for secure, manageable access to VDI, cloud workspaces and virtualized apps,” said Balaji Subramanian, Global Channel Chief, IGEL. “We are proud to be recognized by CRN for our innovation and leadership in giving enterprises the ability to rapidly and securely help their people remain productive while working from anywhere.”
