Citrix Workspace App on Samsung DeX-Enabled Devices Provides Secure,
Unified Experience of all Apps and Data

Business and technology initiatives are rapidly changing in the age of
digital transformation. Citrix has committed to turning the workspace
into something far more integrated, unified and people-centric, and
providing organizations with the ability to manage any device people
choose to get work done. Citrix continues to lead in delivering
next-generation unified endpoint management for all devices that people
use to get work done, whether laptops, smart phones, tablets or new IoT
devices. Citrix is extending support for new Samsung DeX-enabled smart
phones and tablets that were recently unveiled at their Online (Galaxy
Tab S4) and Live (Galaxy Note9) events including support for the new DeX
APIs used to manage the devices, applications and user policies. Samsung
and Citrix have been working together over the course of several years
to provide a secure and easy-to-use digital workspace on Samsung devices
for enterprise use cases including public safety, financial services,
healthcare, retail and other field service organizations.

The integration with Samsung maintains the company's commitment to
provide day-one support for any device and platform. With Citrix
Workspace app, Samsung device users can access virtual apps and
desktops, mobile and SaaS apps and data securely, while seamlessly
moving between mobile devices and laptops or workstations to complete
tasks. Citrix Unified Endpoint Management provides all the elements of
end-user computing management in a single-platform solution that helps
IT administrators securely manage their enterprise applications,
desktops, and data from a secure digital perimeter.

"Citrix and Samsung are working together to provide organizations with a
solution that allows them to mobilize their employees and deliver a
better customer experience with the combination of Samsung DeX and
Citrix Workspace, giving a flexible and secure unified workspace on
Samsung devices," said Eric McCarty, vice president of mobile product
marketing at Samsung Electronics.

Delivering a Unified Workspace Experience for Mobile

Citrix has expanded its portfolio of delivering virtual apps, desktops
and mobile apps to provide secure access to SaaS apps and content via
Citrix Workspace app, creating a unified digital workspace for
organizations. Citrix Workspace app joins Secure Mail and the company's
Content Collaboration and Unified Endpoint Management solutions that
integrate with Samsung DeX-enabled phones and tablets.

Citrix Workspace gives users secure, single sign-on (SSO) access to all
the applications, including widely-used apps like Salesforce and
Workday, and provides compelling features, including enabling data loss
prevention and virtual and SaaS app watermarking for increased security.
Embedded with the company's proven networking and file-sharing
capabilities, Citrix continues to improve the unified experience,
whether in the office or mobile by enabling automation and integration
of third-party apps, for example, allowing users to move conversations
from email to Slack with the same seamless sign-on experience – all
aimed at improving productivity for mobile employees.

The Mobile-first Retail Branch Experience

As an example of the power of Citrix Workspace with Samsung DeX, the
integration with Samsung DeX-enabled devices will be able to deliver a
new, mobile-first retail experience. For employees in retail locations
or in branch offices, Citrix Workspace can provide access to virtual
apps, desktops and mobile apps to provide secure access to SaaS apps and
content on Samsung DeX-enabled devices to effectively run multiple apps
and desktops during sales conversations, and allowing employees to roam
back and forth between mobile devices and desktops to complete customer
transactions. Citrix Workspace app helps provide a new retail branch
solution for stores with Samsung DeX-enabled phones and tablets,
lowering the total cost of ownership and giving organizations the
ability to provide a secure, mobile-first customer service experience.

"By integrating Citrix Workspace with the new Samsung DeX-enabled phones
and tablets, we're not only expanding the unified experience of SaaS,
web, mobile, and virtual apps to any device, but also helping
organizations transform their employee and customer experiences to be
mobile-first. Combined with Citrix Unified Endpoint Management,
customers can securely manage Samsung devices along with all their
corporate-issued or BYO devices," said Calvin Hsu, vice president,
product marketing at Citrix.
