Reading, UK. November 30th, 2017 - IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, has won the Digitalisation Innovation of the Year award for its UD Pocket micro thin client solution at the SVC Awards in London, UK.
The award was voted for by readers of publications such as Digitalisation World, Datacenter Solutions, Storage Virtualisation and Cloud. The SVC Awards reward the products, projects and services, as well as the companies and teams, operating in the cloud, storage and digitalisation sectors. Other winners at this year’s event included NetApp, Veeam and Barracuda.
UD Pocket transforming mobile working
The industry’s first Linux-based micro thin client, UD Pocket has been designed to allow mobile workers access to their desktop from any device. No larger than a paper clip, users simply plug the device into the USB port of any PC, laptop or thin client and it temporarily makes any Intel x86 64-bit desktop an IGEL thin client without over writing the local OS. It gives mobile workers instant access to their cloud services, server-based computing applications or virtual desktop and is automatically integrated into the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) for remote support, deployment and management.
“This award is further proof that our mission to bring the revolutionary micro thin client to businesses is working, ” said Ainsley Brook, UK & Ireland Country Manager for IGEL Technology. “IT managers searching for a simple, secure and mobile workspace solution should look no further than UD Pocket. The size of a small USB, the device can be plugged into almost any device and because the UD Pocket uses existing hardware it can give ageing devices an extended life, dramatically reducing desktop replacement costs.”
