IGEL's Access Solution for Roaming Mobile Workforce

IGEL Technology has announced the technology demonstration of a fast, user-switching thin client solution with integrated Gemalto smartcard reader and single sign-on provided by Citrix Password Manager to solve the authentication and continual sign-on challenges of busy roaming workers. Powered by Citrix Password Manager's Hot Desktop, authentication, secure desktop and application access can be provided in less than 10 seconds.

Users simply remove the smartcard from the thin client and their current profile is stored. When the card is inserted into a new device, the user is asked for their security pin and the desktop is replicated onto the new device without the need for a lengthy, traditional log-on.

IGEL support for Citrix Password Manager's Hot Desktop is available immediately with Hot Desktop licenses available through Citrix resellers.
