Virtualization/Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
Winner: IGEL OS
IGEL OS is a managed endpoint operating system for providing secure access to any digital workspace. The company released IGEL OS 11 in July 2022 with native support for Microsoft Teams—the result of a collaboration between IGEL and Microsoft begun in November 2019. Teams now runs on IGEL OS-powered endpoint devices connecting to Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop, delivering Teams capabilities—including collaboration and videoconferencing—that are on par with Windows-powered endpoints. In October IGEL further simplified the adoption of Microsoft Azure-delivered cloud workspaces with a new IGEL OS for Windows 365.
