IGEL is expanding its collaboration with ControlUp with the integration of their ControlUp Remote DX and ControlUp Edge DX for IGEL OS-powered endpoint environments.

These new capabilities provide greater visibility into endpoint performance while optimizing the digital employee experience for the end user.

"Our expanded relationship with ControlUp provides our mutual customers with more key metrics for expanded visibility and control over the performance of their endpoints, while at the same time helping to identify ways to better optimize the employee digital experience," said Matthias Haas, CTO, IGEL. "With ControlUp, organizations can make more educated decisions about how to improve the performance of their Citrix, VMware, and other virtual desktop and cloud workspace solutions. As a result, they can drive greater productivity and flexibility for end-users."

IGEL and ControlUp first began collaborating in 2019 when the two companies forged an alliance to deliver real-time monitoring combined with an endpoint OS designed for secure, flexible access to cloud-delivered digital workspaces. With the launch of ControlUp Remote DX and ControlUp Edge DX, IGEL and ControlUp are continuing, together, to optimize the end-user's digital experience.

- ControlUp Remote DX: Visibility into the digital employee experience, by monitoring local network performance, including Wi-Fi strength and speed, as well as user device ISP connectivity measurement, regardless of employee location.

- ControlUp Edge DX: ControlUp brings its proven real-time monitoring and optimization capabilities from the world of virtual applications and desktops into the realm of physical endpoints (i.e. machines running Windows, macOS, or Linux).

"To remain productive, today's increasingly distributed workforce relies on being able to connect remotely to their business-critical resources and applications," said Alexander Rublowsky, Executive VP of Marketing at ControlUp. "Enterprises simply can't risk a diminished user experience due to poor connectivity. With the acquisition of Avacee in December 2020, ControlUp is now able to offer a powerful solution that provides high availability, reliability, and performance while supporting the new "work-from-anywhere" business model..."

In February 2021, ControlUp released ControlUp v8.2, the latest version of its real-time performance monitoring dashboard. IGEL OS will support the new functionality with the release of 11.06.100 in August.

"Embedding ControlUp into IGEL OS enables organizations to quickly leverage new features and capabilities that are available in a way that further simplifies the monitoring and optimization of IGEL-powered endpoints, so that users can remain more productive and happier," continued Haas.
