IGEL Launches the UD Pocket2, a Portable Dual Mode USB Device for Secure End User Computing from Anywhere
Friday, January 22, 2021

New, Dual Mode USB Device with Both USB-A and USB-C Connectors Gives Secure, Manageable and Rapid Access to VDI and Cloud Workspaces for BYOD and Work-from-Home Users on a Broader Range of x86-64 Endpoint Devices.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, today released the UD Pocket2, a portable USB device with a USB-A and a USB-C connector that enables secure and rapid access from any x86-64 endpoint, to managed cloud or VDI workspaces. Compatible with both legacy and modern devices, the UD Pocket2 is an ideal solution for bring-your-own-device (BYOD) users, work-from-home users, or organizations that wish to repurpose aging or existing hardware to allow simplified and managed access to the company network or cloud workloads, from anywhere.

"With an innovative, new reversible 2-in-1 design, the UD Pocket2 offers the versatility to transform both legacy systems as well as the latest devices with USB Type-C interfaces into a fully functional IGEL OS-powered endpoint for secure, manageable access to VDI, cloud workspaces and virtualized apps," said Matthias Haas, CTO, IGEL. "In a time where enterprises need the ability to rapidly and securely help their people remain productive from anywhere, the UD Pocket2 packs an elegant solution into a conveniently compact and cost-effective USB device."

The UD Pocket2 is pre-installed with IGEL OS Workspace Edition software and features built-in support for over 100 integrated partner technologies. Using the UD Pocket2, organizations can easily repurpose existing hardware, giving new life to any x86-64 device and making it a secure, managed cloud or VDI workspace. The UD Pocket2 helps defend against the growing threat of ransomware on the endpoint, as it can be used to provide swift disaster recovery should an endpoint become infected. With its USB-A and USB-C connectors, one on each end of the small USB device, the UD Pocket2 is also perfect for modern BYOD endpoints and other compatible small form factor devices. For users working remotely or from home, the UD Pocket2 with IGEL OS is highly secure with its read-only, Linux-based operating system with the added support of two-factor authentication and trusted execution.

Any device enabled with the UD Pocket2, or the UD Pocket USB-A device, becomes a manageable endpoint using the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) which can securely manage up to 300,000 IGEL OS-powered endpoints, whether on the corporate network or off. This makes endpoint management and control simple and secure, even across enterprises with a dispersed and diverse infrastructure of hardware brands and form factors, all from a single console.

"The UD Pocket made things go a lot faster than manually updating the endpoints, patching and installing the necessary applications," said Chris McMasters, CIO, City of Corona. "All we had to do was plug in the UD Pocket, turn on the computer, boot it up and Windows 10 was accessible from IGEL OS within minutes, with everything the end-user needed to be productive."

The UD Pocket2 with IGEL Workspace Edition will be available during February 2021. For more information watch this video and register for a free trial.
