IGEL Technology (/ˈɛl/ EYE-jel) is a technology provider delivering endpoint management software and thin client, zero client and all-in-one thin client hardware and software solutions.[1]

Traditionally known as a provider of thin clients, IGEL has recently re-focused its messaging[clarification needed] as a software company.[2] As a result, IGEL's software sales in North America for the first six months of 2017 are up 890 percent.[3] The biggest driver of this growth is a secure, 64-bit read-only Linux hardware-agnostic OS that fits on a USB stick.[4]

IGEL holds strategic alliance partnerships with AMD, Citrix, Intel, Microsoft, Samsung and VMware, as well as healthcare-sector OEMs including Imprivata and Caradigm.[5] It is a 100-percent channel-focused company[clarification needed] with a three-tier channel program.[6] IGEL today has more than 1,000 partners[7] with 17 at the platinum level in the US.[8]

IGEL products are used by 17,000 customers worldwide with 1.75 million hardware clients and 250,000 software clients under management.[9] Its headquarters are in Bremen, Germany with North American operations out of San Francisco.[10]
