Secure remote access

Citrix is best known for providing its complete virtual app and desktop solution for organisations – the only full solution that is available in the market.

It provides you with the ability to give employees access to applications or a copy of their full desktop. The interface is just like the one they have in the office. The familiar interface is key to driving employee productivity.

XenApp is an application virtualization solution that helps you optimize productivity with universal access to virtual apps, desktops, and data from any device. XenDesktop carries all the same functionality as XenApp, plus the option to implement a scalable VDI Solution.

Citrix provides you with an alternative solution to deliver on-premise or legacy applications and can extend the life of such applications and can save up to 90% of the cost and complexity of upgrading or migrating these solutions.

Both XenApp and XenDesktop integrate with Microsoft solutions, with the latest versions being certified for Windows Server 2016.

Manage all your mobile devices

Citrix XenMobile provides organisations with the ability to give employees the access they need on mobile devices. It works for company owned devices and ‘bring your own’.

XenMobile allows you to empower your employees supporting greater productivity on the go while giving you a flexible approach with complete control over your data and application.

XenMobile can be deployed in as little as two hours and get full access to mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), secure network gateway, and enterprise-grade mobile productivity apps in one comprehensive enterprise mobility management solution. XenMobile enhances the user experience on bring your own or company devices, without compromising security.

Mobile device management (MDM)

MDM protects data through device-level policies provided by the device manufacturer or platform provider. With the help of these policies, IT can configure, secure, and support mobile users. For example, you can enable device-wide encryption and automatically lock or wipe a device. The MDM solution supports a wide variety of mobile devices and operating systems including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry.

Mobile Application Management (MAM)

XenMobile provides MAM options so your organisation can select the mobile app management strategy that’s best suited to meet your security and privacy requirements. It provides you with the ability to protect application data either by leveraging device and platform security or by taking the MAM-only approach, which requires no device enrolment. The MAM-only approach is ideal for bring your own device situations where user privacy prohibits the use of an MDM client or device enrolment and management.

Shared devices

XenMobile lets you configure and manage mobile devices that can be shared by multiple users. The shared devices feature lets, for example, clinicians in hospitals use any nearby device to access apps and data, rather than having to carry around a specific device. You may also want shift workers in fields like law enforcement, retail, and manufacturing to share devices to reduce equipment costs.

With XenMobile, shared devices and apps are kept secure. IT can apply security policies specific to each user’s role in the organisation, and can also geo-fence devices by locking each device to a specific network ID. This approach can reduce the appeal for device thieves. Geo-fenced devices also improve productivity in many work scenarios, such as warehouse stocking.

Networking

The Citrix NetScaler integrates multiple components to enable reliable access and delivery of apps with trusted security and visibility with insights through intelligent analytics. It can be the key to delivering apps efficiently across your organisation.

Netscaler is a range of products designed to optimise and secure applications by providing users with reliable access, protected infrastructure and through intelligent analytics.

Application delivery

Applications and services are becoming more distributed across clouds and data centres. Providing access to users in a reliable way is even more important with employees spread out across different locations and remote workers. SD-WAN goes beyond traditional Application delivery controller s(ADC) and load balancing to help you aggregate all types of networks for a consistent user experience, no matter where they are.

Protection

With apps moving to the cloud, the typical network security model of “connect first and authenticate later” leaves you vulnerable to internet-based attacks. You need multiple technologies to create a secure digital perimeter. While ADCs and gateways can provide contextual access and security by authenticating users before allowing access, web application firewalls and secure web gateway components assist in securing access to your resources.

Intelligent analytics

Deploying separate solutions to address each application across your hybrid- or multi-cloud environment can be difficult to secure and manage. Harness and analyze multiple data streams from ADCs, SD-WAN, and other technologies to provide end-to-end visibility and analysis of applications, users, and devices across the network.

App delivery and load balancing

NetScaler ADC

NetScaler ADC is an application delivery controller that provides flexible delivery services for traditional, containerised and microservice applications from your data centre or any cloud. It features high levels of security, L4-7 load balancing, reliable GSLB, and increased uptime. Plus, it helps you control costs by scaling capacity up when you need it and down when you don’t—and you can even share capacity across instances on premises and in the cloud.

Remote access, SSO, and VDI monitoring

NetScaler Unified Gateway

People today need to access their apps from anywhere and on any device. NetScaler Unified Gateway provides best-in-class security and a seamless user experience by providing secure access and single sign on (SSO) across enterprise, VDI, web, or SaaS app hosted on any data centre or cloud through a single URL.

NetScaler Unified Gateway consolidates multiple remote access solutions, provide SSO, multi-factor authentication, end-to-end monitoring across all application traffic and contextual access control across on-premise VDI, web, cloud and SaaS apps. It helps reduce costs, simplify management, and improve the user experience.
