Citrix Workspace Unifies the Experience and Secures SaaS, Mobile and
Virtual Apps, and Content Across all Endpoints

Digital transformation, cloud and new workstyles are forcing businesses
to rethink how and where technology is deployed and secured. This week
at Citrix Synergy, Citrix is unveiling new innovations that support the
shift to people-centric computing, enabling organizations to deliver a
superior work experience that unifies everything an employee needs in
one place, while meeting the strictest compliance and security needs of
the organization. To ensure employee engagement and productivity,
companies must deliver a unified workspace experience that adapts to how
and where work needs to get done; one that gives IT the confidence to
support and manage their choice of network, cloud or device; and
provides a holistic security framework that dynamically detects and
applies policies everywhere from the datacenter to the most remote
endpoint.

"We, at Citrix, are committed to enabling people-centric computing
within organizations. We are at a place where mobile users now equal
those in a traditional office environment and organizations must deliver
a unified work experience. Our solutions deliver the experience,
security and choice that people and organizations need to innovate,
engage customers and be productive – anytime and anywhere," said David
Henshall, CEO, Citrix.

Experience: Unifying the Experience with SaaS, Web, Mobile and
Virtual Apps

Employee experience and productivity have become a top priority for
CEOs. Providing reliable access to the applications, devices and content
employees prefer has proven to boost employee productivity and drive
improved business performance. Experience must be personalized and
adaptable. Citrix is expanding its portfolio of delivering virtual apps,
desktops and mobile apps to provide secure access to SaaS apps and
content via Citrix Workspace app, creating the first unified digital
workspace for business.

Only Citrix offers the most complete and integrated workspace to enable
people to securely access their web, SaaS, Windows, Linux and mobile
apps, desktops and files from anywhere and across any device. Citrix
Workspace
gives users secure, single sign-on (SSO) access to all the
applications and content in an intuitive and digital workspace that
delivers a consistent and unified experience across all devices –
allowing users to start work at home on their tablet, continue to work
on their smartphone during their commute, and complete work on their
desktop or laptop in the office. Embedded with the company's proven
networking and file-sharing capabilities, Citrix Workspace ensures
reliable app performance, integrated search and workflows across apps,
and market-leading content collaboration regardless of where files are
stored.

Citrix continues to improve the experience of its mobile apps and has
added integration between Slack and Secure Mail, allowing users to
convert email messages into Slack conversations and to send Slack
messages directly from Secure Mail.

Choice: Enabling Choice without Increasing Complexity

Citrix Cloud services enable cloud portability, giving customers the
tools and insights to pursue their individualized cloud strategy with
confidence, and the flexibility to easily move workloads between clouds
as business needs evolve. Customers can now run their Citrix workloads
on any cloud – AWS, Azure, Google and Oracle or private. Citrix
automated image
management and provisioning
technologies make it easy to move these
workloads from customers' datacenters to the cloud of your choice,
supporting a wide range of different platforms from bare metal and
virtualized infrastructure to cloud. Because Citrix has architected its
entire stack on a common platform, customers can easily move workloads
from their datacenter to the cloud of their choice and back again, as
needed, bringing cloud portability within reach of the enterprise.

Citrix is continuing to work with Microsoft to deliver Citrix value-add
capabilities on top of Remote Desktop Management Infrastructure (RDmi),
the next generation RDS platform for Azure. Citrix will also provide
day-one support for Windows Server 2019 to deliver virtualized apps with
XenApp.

Citrix is also enabling choice of devices from a single endpoint
management solution. Citrix
Endpoint Management
provides management for the broadest set of
devices from wearables to IoT devices like Alexa for Business, and
Raspberry Pi-powered workspace hubs from Citrix
partners
NComputing and Viewsonic. Companies need a modern way to
manage this device diversity – it's not just about phones and laptops
anymore. Regardless of the device used, Citrix can securely manage all
endpoints across the enterprise.

Security: A Modern, Holistic Approach

New and ever-increasing threats require modern approaches to security
that enhance productivity, not hamper it. Organizations need a holistic
approach to security that adapts to the way people work, rather than
forcing users to work within security restrictions. Citrix's expanded
security approach unifies our market-leading Citrix Networking portfolio
with Citrix Unified Endpoint Management and Citrix Analytics to deliver
a secure
digital perimeter
that surrounds the user, apps and network for
greater visibility and control. The Citrix secure digital perimeter
allows IT and CISOs centralized security policy controls that are
applied dynamically at any access point to minimize and hide attack
surfaces that live beyond the datacenter, across various devices, apps
and content distributed on-premises and in hybrid and multi-cloud
networks.

Citrix workspace networking portfolio is underpinned by Citrix
Analytics. Whether a company is securing cloud apps, files and data,
mobile or desktop apps, Citrix
Analytics
will provide visibility into company-wide user and entity
behavior, system security, performance and operations, and simplify IT
infrastructure. Using machine learning and artificial intelligence to
detect anomalous behavior and potential threats, Citrix Analytics can
provide actionable intelligence from the information gathered via our
cloud services and on premises products to help customers proactively
identify and manage internal and external threats.

Citrix unifies the experience of SaaS, web, mobile and virtual apps with
Citrix Workspace and has now expanded its ability to securely and
centrally-manage these applications with Citrix Access Control. Unlike
traditional SSO solutions, which provide no visibility, control or
governance of data within SaaS and web apps, the cloud app control
feature in Citrix
Access Control
provides SSO capabilities to all SaaS, web and Citrix
virtualized apps. It provides granular policy controls like
watermarking, restricted copy-paste and can prevent printing. In
addition, Citrix Access Control together with Citrix Analytics provides
advanced user behavior analytics, which helps to intelligently redirect
risky internet browsing activity to a cloud-based virtual browser
completely isolated from the corporate network with zero configuration
required on the endpoint. This allows enterprises to balance
business-oriented browsing with enhanced security.

"Maintaining productivity in an era where new workstyles and
applications are dynamically and increasingly complex requires a new
approach to delivering the user's workspace, one that is focused on
people, and how they use technology to get their jobs done. The Citrix
Workspace is the first unified digital workspace for organizations that
simplifies access to apps and data, creating a consistent experience
across devices, and that is responsive and adaptive wherever a person is
working," said PJ Hough, chief product officer, Citrix.

technology, visit the Citrix booth at Citrix Synergy or on the Citrix
