Citrix and IGEL Announce New Innovations From IGEL DISRUPT 24

IGEL, at IGEL DISRUPT 24, introduced new advancements with Citrix aimed at bolstering security and enhancing digital work experiences for shared clients. One notable development is the integration of IGEL OS with Citrix® Enterprise Browser, making IGEL OS one of the pioneer Linux operating systems to offer support for Citrix® Secure Private Access. This integration facilitates zero-trust access to virtual, web, and SaaS applications via a unified platform with consistent policies and observability. Additionally, Citrix disclosed its intention to extend support for Linux with Citrix uberAgent®, a move that IGEL intends to endorse upon its release, thereby enabling comprehensive endpoint monitoring for their devices.

“Citrix is excited to extend the reach of our security and observability solutions to Linux and to partner with IGEL on the integration of our offerings for our joint customers,” said Sridhar Mullapudi, executive vice president and general manager, Citrix, a business unit of Cloud Software Group. “Citrix and IGEL are enabling any enterprise that wants to secure their employees, IT environment and content while delivering a more secure device posture without compromising user experience.”

Through collaborative development and innovation via the IGEL Ready and Citrix Ready™ partner programs, IGEL is delivering support for the following Citrix solutions:

  • Citrix Enterprise Browser. Building on IGEL’s exclusive Preventative Security Model™ which secures endpoints by design to reduce ransomware risk and support zero trust initiatives, the IGEL OS support for Citrix Enterprise Browser helps users stay productive while mitigating insider and external threats. The locally installed browser accelerates a zero trust strategy with dynamic context awareness and ensures simple, secure VPN-less access from anywhere.
  • Citrix Secure Private Access. For organizations that want to keep apps secure and hybrid workforces productive, IGEL has released support for Citrix Secure Private Access. Delivering adaptive access to all IT-sanctioned apps – web, SaaS, and client-server – whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud, Citrix Secure Private Access prevents unauthorized access and eliminates threats from any IGEL OS-powered device. The Citrix Secure Private Access agent for IGEL OS is available now.
  • Citrix uberAgent. To improve user experience, the new Citrix uberAgent monitoring agent will deliver rich metrics for IGEL OS clients. Integrated with Splunk Enterprise, Splunk Cloud, and other similar systems, uberAgent offers a variety of use case dashboards for threat detection and enhanced security. IGEL OS is expected to be among the first Linux OSs to support Citrix uberAgent when available.


“IGEL and Citrix are committed to delivering the collaborative innovations that secure and revolutionize how people work,” said Jim Airdo, senior vice president of strategic alliances, IGEL. “Our longstanding partnership, from the development lab to the field, delivers, time and again, the new capabilities our joint customers need to elevate and secure the end user computing experience. We are pleased to once again deliver industry-first innovations for Citrix users, underscoring the depth of our partnership.”

These new developments and enhanced Citrix technology support are being featured this week during IGEL DISRUPT 24, the industry’s largest EUC event taking place April 29 through May 1 in Miami, Fla. During the event, Citrix delivered a half-day technical bootcamp which provided the opportunity to delve into the cutting-edge world of digital workspaces, zero trust security options, observability solutions featuring Citrix’s newly acquired uberAgent technology, and enhanced application delivery methods under the guidance of industry experts.
