IGEL honored for providing channel partners with a suite of software-defined endpoint security and optimization solutions that are optimized to deliver secure enterprise computing

San Francisco, Sept. 18, 2018 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint security and optimization software for the secure enterprise, today announced that it has been recognized with the “Endpoint Security” award in the inaugural ChannelnomicsSecurity Awards. The award, which was presented during the Security Awards winners’ dinner on Thursday, September 13 at the West Club Hotel New York City, recognizes IGEL’s achievement in providing channel partners with simple, smart and secure software-defined endpoint security and optimization solutions.

The Channelnomics Security Awards are designed to recognize the trailblazers in the security industry including those players who are embracing the ever-changing face of the market and making it possible for the channel to forge ahead in this challenging landscape. With 30 categories recognizing the achievements of resellers, MSPs, MSSPs, vendors and distributors, Channelnomicsis looking for businesses that stand out from the crowd and sit head and shoulders above their security industry peers. The Channelnomics Security Awards are completely independent and based solely on innovation and achievement in the North American security space over the past year.

“Windows, the ubiquitous OS, causes constant headaches for our partners and their customers, and it is our philosophy that Windows belongs in the datacenter where it can be effectively managed, protected from outside attacks, and optimized for application and desktop delivery,” said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. “At the endpoint, in the hands of the end-users, we believe you need a rock solid, stable, secure and high-performance OS tuned to deliver end-user productivity – eliminating the security and management challenges that Windows brings, and that is our Linux-based IGEL OS, the core of our solution. Purpose-built for the enterprise, the IGEL OS is a read-only file system which ensures that every boot-up is safe. We have integrated advanced security features into our endpoint security and optimization software solutions so that our channel partners can ensure their customers’ endpoints are fully protected.”

Jessica Meek, Editor of Channelnomicssaid “As security becomes the beginning, middle and end of everybody’s business, large or small, innovative leaders in the security space are more important now than ever before. The winners of the ChannelnomicsSecurity Awards are the leading lights in the security industry, the people who think security 24/7 so the rest of don’t have to. It is vital, therefore, that we recognize and honor their drive, passion and commitment to the industry, as without them we would all be significantly less secure”

Channelnomicsfelt the time was right to recognize all the industry players that have managed to achieve all of these things and more. The Security Awards celebrated the players in the Security space who have taken the lead in their field and set the stage for the year to come.
