University of Florence: The largest university library in the city becomes centrally managed with Praim

The University of Florence is an important and influential centre for research and higher training in Italy, with 1,800 lecturers and internal research staff, 1,600 technical and administrative staff.

At the beginning of 2016 approximately 230 PCs were replaced with thin clients and a centrally managed VDI system. Appreciated by users and IT staff, it was decided to extend the project to the computer classrooms as well. The replacement of devices began, initially with the obsolete units. Currently, SIAF provides about 320 workstations, some with dedicated graphics hardware , and the forecast is to expand to about 800 workstations in 2018.

The first workstations that migrated to the VDI system were configured as kiosks providing access to: databases, web based and client-server consultation, the use of office applications for dissertations/research and Internet browsing.

Christmas doesn’t have to be Crisis with the Aimar Foundation and IGEL

Christmas doesn’t have to be Crisis with the Aimar Foundation and IGEL

Reading UK. December 21, 2017 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced that Crisis, the UK national charity for single homeless people, is using its thin client terminals as part of the technology solution provided at nine Crisis at Christmas locations in London, its operational centre as well locations in Birmingham, Coventry, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

It is expected that around 4,700 homeless guests will be supported by the charity this year during the nine-day festive and New Year period.

The IGEL equipment is part of a total IT package provided to Crisis at Christmas by the Aimar Foundation, a charity founded in 2005 by IT staff from global financial services firm, Morgan Stanley, as part of its strong culture to give back to the communities it works in.

Simon Clark, Aimar Foundation’s CEO and executive director at Morgan Stanley says, “This is the tenth year we’ve supported Crisis at Christmas with technology solutions. The IT provided helps people to not only get in touch with loved ones at Christmas but allows them to work on their CVs and access other support and social services online to help turn their lives around.”

Unfortunately, homelessness is still a major issue in society. According to research from Crisis, there are 160,000 homeless households in Britain today.

Last year, Crisis at Christmas centres served 32,267 nutritious hot meals, carried out 795 health screenings, repaired 605 items of clothing and delivered 1,463 advisory sessions. Around 10,536 volunteers gave up 240,960 hours to help.

This year, Crisis will provide around 26 services to homeless guests ranging from counselling, hairdressing, dental and eye care, Internet Cafes – even kennels for pets. Centres are open fromDecember 23 to 30, 2017.

A tight window to get set up solved by using VDI and thin clients from IGEL

Crisis at Christmas used to take over disused buildings to locate its support centres but this has evolved with the charity now using schools and colleges given staff and students are on holiday and the facilities empty. Simon Clark explains, “The academies and colleges have kitchens, are heated and come with structured cabling for IT. Obviously, we have to wait for term to end before we can go into set up. This presents its own challenges given– on some sites – we literally have half a day to do it.”

This is where Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and thin client terminals come into play. The Aimar Foundation is providing Crisis at Christmas with a hosted desktop from Nasstar running Citrix XenApp. Around 320 powerful IGEL UD3 terminals have been lent to the Aimar Foundation which are optimized for multimedia applications. The system is secure, quick to set up and easy to remotely manage by Aimar’s core team of 15 staff and 150 volunteers who are helping to install and decommission the solution. This year, a whole range of other volunteer firms are assisting Aimar Foundation to do this including Google, Microsoft, Credit Suisse, JP Morgan, the London Stock Exchange, Vodafone, EE, Atomwide Managed Services, London Grid for Learning, Project Fusion, Everything Corporate, RDC and MoveIT.

Guests will be provided all the normal Microsoft Office applications, Internet browsing, storage and Voice over IP. The latter is being delivered for free by Gradwell Communications.

In addition, the system supports seven languages – English, Spanish, Polish, Russian, Latvian, Lithuanian and Romanian – and is configured to allow some-one working on a CV for example to then download files to a portable USB memory stick.

Clark continued, “What I love about our work with Crisis is that by using our day to day skills – be it technology or management – we can give back to the people most in need in society at a very critical time of the year.”

Ainsley Brooks, IGEL’s UK & Ireland country manager, says, “When Aimar Foundation first started working with Crisis at Christmas, traditional ‘fat’ PCs were used. This just wasn’t practical as they’re complex and time-consuming to install and manage in contrast to a centrally controlled and hosted VDI system with fast to deploy endpoints. We’re delighted to be involved and wish everyone a very happy Christmas.”

Praim announces the compatibility of its ThinOX thin clients with Cisco Virtualization Experience Media Engine (VXME)

Trento, December 15th, 2017 – Praim, a global leader in providing powerful managed endpoint software solutions and a manufacturer of thin and zero clients, announces today the compatibility of its Linux-based, ThinOX thin clients with Cisco Virtualization Experience Media Engine (VXME), a component of the Unified Communication platform Cisco Jabber. This solution allows different methods of communication, from instant messaging, high definition voice, video and conferencing, to voicemail with visual interface and desktop sharing.

Thanks to VXME integration, the full range of Praim thin clients (ThinOX and Windows Embedded) support Cisco Jabber, providing users a higher audio and video conferencing experience in virtualized systems. Praim certifies an extended range of communications tools, including Jabra and Plantronics headsets, Logitech webcams and more, to ensure an easy and fast multimedia workstation creation in VDI environments.

Through VXME support, users can work with Cisco Jabber in Citrix XenDesktop or Citrix XenApp published desktop virtualized environments.

The Praim Thin & Zero Client full range – from Intel Celeron dual core platforms of the Neutrino Series to the Duetto all-in-one quad core solution – confirmed its great performance in multimedia and the Unified Communication sectors.

Cisco VXME add-on can be used also with ThinOX4PC, Praim software developed to transform PCs into thin clients. Thanks to ThinOX4PC, companies can select the suitable hardware to address their users’ needs and profit from the typical thin client benefits, such as high-end user experience, centralized management and data protection.

“This latest development confirms our leading role in the creation and management of enterprise workstations in cloud and virtualized architectures,” says Nicola Manica, R&D Manager at Praim. “Our division, and the entire company, are committed to provide universal and versatile solutions, that answer new business needs – such as the growing demand of integrated communication solutions support – in a fast and efficient way.”

Cisco VXME for Praim ThinOX is available for free on Praim website, as a Praim ThinOX 10.2.6 add-on. It can be easily distributed through the centralized management console, ThinMan.

It gives mobile workers instant access to their cloud services, server-based computing applications or virtual desktop and is automatically integrated into the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) for remote support, deployment and management.

“This award is further proof that our mission to bring the revolutionary micro thin client to businesses is working,” said Ainsley Brook, UK & Ireland Country Manager for IGEL Technology. “IT managers searching for a simple, secure and mobile workspace solution should look no further than UD Pocket. The size of a small USB, the device can be plugged into almost any device and because the UD Pocket uses existing hardware it can give ageing devices an extended life, dramatically reducing desktop replacement costs.”

St George’s NHS Trust implemented Praim thin clients and ThinMan remote management console

With thousands of staff caring for patients around the clock, St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust is the largest healthcare provider in southwest London. With over 7,000 dedicated staff, St George’s Healthcare serves an overall population of 1.3 million across southwest London. A large number of services, such as cardiothoracic medicine and surgery, neurosciences and renal transplantation, also cover significant populations from Surrey and Sussex, totalling around 3.5 million people.

To serve such a big population, St George’s clinicians are constantly moving throughout all the facilities to treat patients. Timing and quick service are the primary need for the hospital. Doctors require fast, easy and secure access to clinical applications and patients records anywhere and anytime across the Trust, to provide the best care.

The IT department from St George’s has therefore looked in the market for the right solution to address these needs. Praim ThinOX thin clients with native support of Imprivata OneSign fulfilled all the requirements needed by the Trust, “with this solution from Praim and Imprivata, we are able to deliver secure, personalised desktops at the point of care, via the user’s NHS smartcard.” – said John-Jo Campbell, CIO at St George’s NHS Healthcare Trust.

Thanks to ThinOX flexibility, the IT team from St George’s could configure devices based on clinicians and doctors’ needs. The units were locked down offering users only an access to Imprivata authentication client and few restricted local settings (video, audio, mouse etc.). The Praim/Imprivata allows then their authentication via Active Directory credentials, Smart and Proximity Cards.

St George’s has deployed a total of 3,000 thin clients, with roughly 2,800 active users connecting throughout a 7-day period (approx half of connection on a daily basis) with an overall 38,000 logons per week.

We look forward to working with Praim in the future and see them as one of our solution partners in terms of delivering our Medical desktop strategy” – said Justin Beardsmore.

Scheduled Activities & Event Activities

Being part of an IT department involves a 360 degree commitment to ordinary and extraordinary infrastructure management activities. These activities may, however, prove to be onerous in terms of time and resources to employ. For this reason, it is important to use tools that allow the IT department to perform these operations as quickly as possible.

IT Automation: The benefits of centralised management of your company workstations

In a sense, having an easy-to-manage infrastructure has always been the true target of the IT departments in all companies, although management simplicity does not have to translate into a bottleneck of performances perceived by end users and reflecting on overall productivity.

The main requirement in this digital transformation scenario is to provide solutions that optimise the corporate information environment and reduce the TCO, the total cost of ownership, while at the same time being able to grant and improve overall IT infrastructure performance.

IGEL UMS Enhanced Universal Management Suite®; Adds Asset Inventory Tracking Capabilities

Updated management software provides IT organisations with visibility into USB and Bluetooth assets connected to IGEL OS-powered endpoints; offers a migration path to third-party asset management tools

 

Reading, UK. Aug. 31, 2017 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, announced today that it has updated the IGEL Universal Management Suite® (UMS) to include Asset Inventory Tracker (AIT) capabilities.

 

“By integrating the Asset Inventory Tracker into the IGEL UMS, IT organisations can now gain a clear view of all peripheral devices connected to their IGEL OS-powered endpoints,” said Ainsley Brooks, IGEL’s UK & Ireland country manager. “This feature is especially important in the healthcare, retail and financial services industries where IT organisations need insight into the changes in their distributed assets and computer infrastructure to ensure business continuity.”

 

Centralised View of Connected Assets

IGEL UMS 5.07.100 provides IT organisations with a centralised, current view of all USB and Bluetooth assets connected to their IGEL OS-powered endpoints. Details available via the IGEL UMS dashboard include which endpoint the asset is connected to, the type of asset, the manufacturer and the model number.

 

“Having access to this level of detail can help IT organisations eliminate confusion regarding available asset inventory,” said Brooks. “It also can prevent the use of unauthorised peripheral devices, and can reduce capital expenditures related to the replacement of lost and/or broken peripheral devices.”

 

Connect to Third-Party Asset Management Solutions with IGEL UMS

For more advanced functionality, the newly enhanced IGEL UMS version 5.07.100 can also provide IT organisations with the ability to connect to third-party asset management tools via an integrated programming interface based on the industry standard REST API.

 

“When IT organisations leverage the IGEL UMS in combination with external asset management tools and software to collect more comprehensive data on the USB and Bluetooth assets that are connected to their IGEL OS-powered endpoints, they can experience even greater security and control over their desktop infrastructure,” said Brooks.

 

Availability

To experience the features of the IGEL Asset Inventory Tracker, IT organisations must upgrade their IGEL UMS to version 5.07.100.

IGEL UD Pocket to Revolutionise Endpoint Management for Apple® Mac Computers

For the first time, IT organisations can now convert most 64-bit, x86-based Apple Mac computers into an IGEL OS-powered endpoint via the micro thin client solution

Reading, UK. Aug. 30, 2017 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, today announced that it is extending the capabilities of the IGEL UD Pocket™, and for the first time providing IT organisations with a smart, simple and secure way to leverage the IGEL OS on their users’ Apple® Mac computers.

IGEL Pocket UD

Click for full size

First introduced in December 2016, the IGEL UD Pocket is a flexible and cost-effective out-of-the-box micro thin client solution designed to improve the security of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives in organisations with remote or mobile workforces.

“With an increasing number of businesses and their workers opting to use Apple Macs due to their ease of use, flexibility and security, the IGEL UD Pocket with Mac support is a game changer for IGEL,” said Ainsley Brooks, IGEL’s UK & Ireland country manager. “Up until now, the only way that enterprises have been able to access the IGEL OS has been through their x86 Windows-based devices. The certification of the Apple Mac platform by IGEL was driven by customer demand to support their creative staff, contractors and executives who prefer this platform. By providing support for Mac computers through the IGEL UD Pocket, not only are we extending our addressable market opportunity, we are also helping our enterprise customers simplify the management of their endpoints by making it possible to securely administer x86-based PCs, thin clients, laptops and Mac-based endpoints via one central management console.”

 Ease of Management Lowers TCO for Businesses Leveraging IGEL on the Mac

Similar to all other IGEL OS-powered software-defined thin and zero clients, the IGEL UD Pocket is integrated into the IGEL Universal Management Suite™ (UMS), a centralised and secure remote management console that provides organisations with complete control over their IGEL endpoints, saving time and resources.

The combination of the IGEL UD Pocket for Mac and the IGEL UMS, can also reduce operating expenses due to the already lower total cost of ownership available through the Mac platform. For example, it was recently reported that when IBM began integrating the Apple Mac platform, it found within the first few months that only 5 percent of Mac equipped employees called their internal help desk for assistance, versus 40% of PC users.

Simple and Smart Design Promotes Enterprise-Level Security

Supporting enterprise-level security standards and protocols, the IGEL UD Pocket features two-factor authentication through external smart card readers or USB tokens, which prevents passwords from being lost, forgotten or intercepted by cybercriminals. “Two-factor authentication is especially important in vertical markets such as financial services and insurance, education and healthcare where workers may be roaming between multiple desks, offices or locations over the course of their workday,” continued Brooks.

Additionally, through the IGEL Cloud Gateway (ICG), which seamlessly authenticates the connection between the IGEL UD Pocket and IGEL UMS, IT organisations can provide end users with secure, anytime and anywhere access to their Citrix, VMware and Microsoft virtual desktops via a standard Internet connection, without the need for a virtual private network (VPN) or leased-line solution.

Technical Specifications and Requirements

With IGEL UD Pocket, IT organisations can convert most Apple Mac computers into an IGEL OS-powered endpoint, as long as they meet the minimum requirements of having a 64-bit, x86-based CPU, 2GB of RAM, 2GB of storage and UEFI boot capability. Key features available through the Apple Mac computers, and supported by the IGEL UD Pocket include Mac Keyboard, Mac Touchpad, most Wi-Fi, Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard.

Available in a USB 3.0 form factor with backward compatibility to USB 2.0, the IGEL UD Pocket measures 22.4mm x 12.2mm x 6mm and weighs 3 grams. The IGEL UD Pocket also features an industry-grade 8GB memory module, and the high-quality metal chassis is resistant to dust, shock and water.

Availability and Licensing

The IGEL UD Pocket can be purchased through IGEL channel partners in the UK for £89+vat. Licensing for the IGEL UD Pocket is assigned to the USB stick, independent of the MAC address of the target endpoint. This flexibility to roam from one device to another, along with regular IGEL firmware updates, offers IT organisations a simple solution for managing a diverse range of 64-bit x86 devices and Macs.

Managing Windows access to VDI with Praim Agile

An often-overlooked aspect of migrating to a remote desktop computing infrastructure is the existing desktops. Some installations plan and develop a hardened Windows build with restricted capabilities and the bare minimum of functionality. Other implementations look to repurposing software, like Praim’s ThinOX4PC to convert PCs into thin clients, either as an interim solution prior to migration to dedicated thin client hardware devices or as part of a strategy relating to asset longevity. Unfortunately, there are as many implementations where this final step is not considered at all and involves little more than an icon created on the PCs desktop. Praim have recently released Agile 2.0 to help with connections from the Windows desktop and to assist in several other permutations.
