“At IGEL, we see a world where people can work, when and where they want, without boundaries or limitations when accessing their desired applications and data,” said IGEL Founder and CEO, Heiko Gloge. “The rapid rise of IGEL demonstrates that we are successfully capitalizing on a perfect storm of opportunity in the end user computing and cloud workspaces market. It’s very exciting to see the transformation of IGEL, and the amazing growth trajectory that has resulted from our becoming a leader in this space.”

Many enterprises today are moving Windows from local device operation, to the data center where the Windows desktop can be securely accessed using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) with vendors such as Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. Others are looking to cloud workspaces technology using Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offerings from AWS (including Amazon WorkSpaces) and Microsoft, with its increasingly popular Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) offering. IGEL is at the center of this industry movement, with the right technology at the right time delivering a next-generation edge OS for simple, smart and secure cloud workspaces with lower cost and greater manageability.
