IGEL has revealed an extended collaboration with Lenovo that speeds up the global availability of Lenovo devices featuring the integrated IGEL OS. Under this enhanced partnership, Lenovo ThinkPad L14 Gen 4 Intel and AMD notebooks, as well as ThinkCentre Neo50q thin clients and M75q tiny desktops, now come with an integrated IGEL OS license, accessible directly from Lenovo. This expedites the availability of Lenovo devices, incorporating AI enhancements and running on IGEL OS, while streamlining the procurement process for secure and easily manageable endpoints worldwide through any authorized Lenovo channel.
“Together, IGEL and Lenovo are making it easy to benefit from IGEL’s enterprise-class OS that has been designed for secure access to SaaS, DaaS and VDI environments,” said Jim Airdo, Senior Vice President, Strategic Alliances, IGEL. “Our deepened partnership is a result of our extensive co-development efforts and will make the Lenovo devices, with integrated IGEL OS, easier to procure. This means increased device availability for customers that want to empower their end users and secure their enterprise using our advanced Preventative Security Model™ which elevates our mutual customers’ security posture while simplifying policy-driven management.”
“Lenovo sees IGEL OS as a transformative endpoint OS for the secure, efficient and sustainable operating platform customers need for the future of end user computing,” said Jonathan Pollock, Director, Commercial Software, Lenovo. “By fully integrating IGEL OS into our industry leading commercial devices, we are helping organizations everywhere better secure their employee computing experiences while simplifying manageability and control for the IT teams that support them.”
IGEL OS is now fully integrated as the out-of-the-box operating system for Lenovo devices including Lenovo Thinkpad L14 Gen 4 Intel and AMD notebooks, ThinkCentre Neo50q thin client and the M75q tiny desktop. The OS is included in the device purchase, without additional license requirements, for simplified procurement and deployment from any Lenovo authorized channel, worldwide.
“With Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks, powered by IGEL OS, we have been able to quickly enable 2,000 employees to work from home securely and productively,” said Thomas Alt, Deputy Head, Infrastructure as a Service, Debeka, a Germany-based leader in insurance services. “The resulting ‘IGELbooks’ have given our employees the freedom to work from anywhere with powerful devices that have been purpose-built for enterprise access to virtual environments for high security that’s easier than ever for our IT team to manage.”
IGEL OS is a secure Linux-based operating system that features the advanced IGEL Preventative Security Model which has been designed to support the Zero Trust and SASE initiatives that eliminate endpoint vulnerabilities targeted by bad actors. Ideal for VDI, DaaS, SaaS and secure browsing use cases, Lenovo devices with integrated IGEL OS deliver a first-class user experience while being seamless to manage.
