Enhanced security for thin client computing.

IGEL Technology : 21 November, 2007  (New Product)
XPe firmware from IGEL technology provides improved thin client management and security with option to disable USB write commands.
IGEL Technology has announced its latest Windows XP Embedded firmware upgrade enhancing the broadest and most powerful range of thin clients on the market. The firmware allows full virtual desktop access via the Leostream Connection Broker. Any organisation using virtual PC's based on VMware's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) standard can now use any Windows XPe model from IGEL's award-winning product line. Windows XPe gives users a very broad range of digital services and full Microsoft compatibility to compliment their virtual desktop. The image contains Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, Microsoft Media Player, PDF readers and Java on most models, allowing users to deliver certain server-based applications outside the virtual PC connection. This helps organisations reduce server load and also enhance the user desktop experience.

The firmware also includes the latest Microsoft RDP 6.0 client which supports resource redirection for a broad set of plug'n'play devices. Additionally the new Microsoft RDP version supports spanning a single remote session across multiple displays and visual improvements including support for 32-bit colour and font smoothing.

The IGEL XPe firmware also helps users by intelligently placing application windows automatically in one of the four displays on IGEL's PanaVeo thin client. This makes using a multi-screen Windows desktop very fast and easy for people such as financial traders.

Finally, IGEL has enhanced security with the option of disabling specific USB devices in any supported IGEL XPe device using either the local setup manager or remotely with IGEL Remote Management Suite. This feature involves a simple mouse click with no scripting and helps administrators to drastically reduce the risk of data theft from their network.

"The introduction of our latest Windows XPe image means all of our 20 thin client models allow access to virtual PCs using VMware's VDI standard. IGEL now offers the broadest range of VDI compatible thin clients from a single manufacturer. Being able to rapidly introduce new digital services like the VDI standard and offering customers a broad selection of access protocols for their entire server based needs is a testament to our digital service strategy." said Stephen Yeo, worldwide strategic marketing director for IGEL Technology.
