Furthering IGEL's strategy to become the edge Operating System for cloud workspaces

IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, today announced the appointment of WESTPAC INC for software distribution in South Korea and South East Asia, furthering its strategy to become the edge OS provider for cloud workspaces.

"WESTPAC has built an impressive reputation in the region over the past decade, initially in its semiconductor and electric components sector and latterly in the cloud computing space with its partnership with companies such as Teradici, AMD, Leostream and now IGEL," said Leigh Howard, International Sales Director, at IGEL. "The combination of IGEL's world-leading software products and WESTPAC's knowledge of Korea and South East Asia puts us in a strong position to expand on the staggering success we are already having in North America and Europe."

Henry Kim, CEO for WESTPAC INC, adds: "With its next generation edge operating system, IGEL is revolutionising the way endpoints are managed and secured in cloud and VDI environments. Its agnostic support for Microsoft WVD, Amazon, Citrix and VMware positions IGEL to be a leading enabler of cloud workspaces for modern workplaces. We see enormous pent-up demand for this type of software solution and look forward to helping IGEL become the de facto edge OS provider in the region."

IGEL announced record results for the first half of 2019. Software revenue growth in the North American region alone, year-over-year, topped 147% during the period with a 142% growth in endpoint units shipped, including hardware and software-defined endpoints. Worldwide, IGEL revenue for the first half of 2019 grew 47%, year-over-year.

Fundamental to the company's success are recent sales wins in the healthcare, retail, financial services, federal government and manufacturing sectors. These sales have been fueled by successful alignment and integration with Citrix, Microsoft, Amazon and VMware as IGEL grows its dominant footprint as the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, connecting any hardware, using any protocol, in any cloud for securely managed end user computing, anywhere.
