IGEL honored for revolutionizing the digital workspace through software-defined endpoint management solutions that enable MSPs to provide their customers with seamless and secure access to their virtualized desktops and applications
SAN FRANCISCO, April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --IGEL,a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced that it has been recognized with the "Highly Commended Award" in the "Most Valuable Software Category" of the inaugural Channelnomics MSP Awards. The award, which was presented on Thursday, April 26 during a ceremony at Convene Hotel in New York City, recognizes IGEL's achievement in providing managed services providers (MSPs) with simple, smart and secure software-defined endpoint management solutions that help them boost sales opportunities.
The MSP Awards are designed to recognize the managed services players across North America that bring forward thinking, excitement and success to the channel. With 19 categories recognizing achievements of MSPs, MSSPs and vendors, Channelnomics is looking for businesses that stand out from the crowd in the managed services market. The Channelnomics MSP Awards are completely independent and based solely on innovation and achievement in the North American channel over the past year.
"2018 is quickly becoming an inflection point for end-user computing as organizations increasingly look toward Desktop-as-a-Service solutions as a way to keep pace with the heightened threat landscape while providing anytime, anywhere access to desktops and applications," said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. "IGEL is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this with our software-defined endpoint management offerings that enable MSPs to provide their customers with seamless and secure access to their virtualized desktops and applications. We are tremendously honored to be recognized by Channelnomics for our innovation and commitment to helping our MSP and solution partners drive success."
Dizzion, an MSP headquartered in Denver, Colo. Is currently leveraging the IGEL UDC, UD Pocket and Universal Desktop thin client solutions, connecting them through the IGEL UMS and IGEL Cloud Gateway as part of their Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering.
"Many of our customers must abide by strict compliance controls and security frameworks like PCI and HIPAA," said Brady Ranum, Vice President of Product and Strategy, Dizzion. "Previous to IGEL, the one piece we weren't able to add to our compliant service offering was the endpoint. Now, with IGEL, we are able to add an Endpoint-as-a-Service capability that allows us to deliver end to end compliance."
"It isn't easy to be a leader in today's crowded marketplace, yet it is falling upon the shoulders of every solution provider to offer managed services of one sort or another," said Jessica Meek, Editor of Channelnomics. "And it's not just MSPs that need to manage this evolution, vendors need to be able to offer significant support, not to mention innovative, best-of-breed technology to their partners in order to help them navigate these over-populated waters."
Channelnomics felt the time was right to recognize all the industry players that have managed to achieve all of these things and more. The MSP Awards celebrated the players in the MSP space who have taken the lead in their field and set the stage for the year to come.
