IGEL Delivers Full Support for Amazon WorkSpaces

IT organizations can now access Amazon WorkSpaces leveraging IGEL’s software-defined endpoints, Teradici PCoIP software, and managed workspace solutions from eLumin and Tehama

IGEL, provider of a next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, announced that it now offers full support for Amazon WorkSpaces, an industry-leading Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering that provides end-users with anytime, anywhere access to their digital desktop, from any device.

In alliance with key AWS partners, eLumin, a provider of automation, orchestration, management and support solutions for classroom environments, Tehama, the leading SaaS platform for secure IT service delivery, and Teradici, provider of the industry-leading PCoIP protocol, IGEL is delivering Amazon WorkSpaces to end-users via the Teradici Cloud Access Software Client for Linux. IGEL is also making it possible for organizations to deliver applications using Amazon’s AppStream 2.0 streaming service to remote applications in a secure browser protected by AppArmor, a Linux kernel security module that enables system administrators to restrict program capabilities.

“Managing computing environments and providing persistent and secure on-demand access to cloud-enabled and virtual workspaces can be a monumental challenge for organizations with a significant number of mobile or geographically dispersed end users,” said Simon Clephan, Vice President of Business Development, IGEL. “Through our alliances with eLumin and Tehama, we are able to provide our mutual customers with cloud-accessible desktops that are scalable, secure and simple to manage.”

eLumin leverages the AWS cloud to support the learning environment through integrated access to popular learning management systems, Windows 7 or Windows 10 desktops, and specialized software, curriculum and other resources.

AWS offers the building blocks for the compute, storage and network services, while we add the automation, orchestration, management and support needed to provide a learning experience that enables the student to focus on their studies, rather than the technology. With IGEL’s powerful endpoint optimization and control capabilities, we are able to to further simplify the deployment of cloud-based endpoints, providing students with secure and seamless access to their resource-intensive virtual applications, whether they are working inside their classroom, from home, or from a mobile device or kiosk.”

Secure and Flexible Onboarding and Offboarding with Tehama

Tehama’s SaaS-based solution leverages controls, policies, and system of secure vaults to provide geographically-dispersed employees, contractors and other third-parties with controlled and monitored virtual workspaces with access to corporate assets. Tehama’s pre-built compliance-in-a-box workspaces meet security and regulatory standards, including SOC 2 Type II, GDPR, OSFI, and FIPS. Furthermore, with Tehama, organizations are able to create secure workspaces that isolate potential threats while enabling productivity and collaboration among privileged users.

“By combining Tehama’s workspace delivery solution with IGEL endpoints, including the IGEL UD Pocket, end users have near-instant access to Tehama Secure Rooms via any 64-bit x86 device,” said Craig Wesely Irwin, Vice President, Global Strategic Accounts and Alliances, Tehama. “This promotes easy and secure collaboration between remote employees while at the same time ensuring regulatory compliance.”

Irwin continued, “Nothing is stored locally on the endpoint device when Tehama Secure Rooms are accessed using IGEL’s software-defined solutions, meaning the device will revert immediately back to its original state. This is a game-changer in terms of remote user enablement, security and productivity.”
