SAN FRANCISCO, April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, today announced the availability of a new "Work from Home Kit" which has been designed to ease and accelerate companies' work-from-home (WFH) strategies. IGEL also announced its 2020 sweepstakes and contest program, "Workspace Coolplace," where eligible participants will be entered to win one of two complete home workspace makeovers worth $20,000 and quarterly home office prizes. Makeovers will be designed by leading home makeover and organizing expert Vicki Norris.
"Working from home has become today's new normal as we strive to remain productive, connected and positive during this unprecedented time. IGEL is here to help with new, easier ways to support remote workers and a sweepstakes which gives winners the cool home workspace they've always wanted and deserve," said Jed Ayres, CEO of IGEL. "Now, more than ever, our workspaces need to not only inspire efficiency but also support the new balance we all face between our traditional workplace and home. We're thrilled to be partnering with Vicki Norris as she shares her work-at-home tips, advice and workstyle recommendations."
The IGEL "Work from Home Kit"
Available immediately, the IGEL "Work from Home Kit" provides both existing and new customers the ability to deploy and manage IGEL OS across the internet securely, enabling IT organizations to manage and support thousands of endpoints.
The "Work from Home Kit" includes everything required to deploy IGEL OS to at-home and remote employees, including the UD Pocket which enables even unmanaged, older devices to dual boot into the secure, managed IGEL OS. The WFH kit also includes the IGEL Cloud Gateway function which enables full management and control of endpoints located anywhere via the internet, with secure configuration, updates, and even device shadowing for troubleshooting. The WHF kit is available now at 50% off the list price of the combined offerings for customers who have previously purchased IGEL's Workspace Edition. More information on the IGEL "Work from Home Kit" is available at www.igel.com/work-from-home.
"We've been using IGEL Cloud Gateway for the past two years for remote workers with laptop devices located in the field," said David Faynor, Information Technology Business Manager, Pittsburgh Mercy Hospital. "All together we currently have 700 'IGEL'd' devices and are looking to add more devices this upcoming year."
