How It Helps Your Company Stay Mobile And Safe

Citrix Xen is a server virtualization platform based on the Xen hypervisor to facilitate the hosting, management and deployment of virtual machines.

The easy to deploy platform delivers Windows, web, Linux and SaaS applications or full virtual desktops.

Why Management And Remote Access Users Love It

C-level executives love that the products provide secure remote access to employees while at the same time reducing IT costs.

What Can Citrix Xen Do For You?

Citrix Studio allows IT pros to set up XenApp or XenDesktop environments that create desktops and provides controls to assign desktops to users.

Citrix Director is a powerful tool to manage XenApp and XenDesktop environments. As an IT professional, it’s key to get ahead of any issues, facilitating troubleshooting while at the same time performing support tasks for end users.

Citrix Xen products allow your IT staff to manage a wide array of devices and platforms from any location while at the same time providing a “wow” user experience.

The Future: Flexibility To Work Securely From Anywhere

Microsoft’s Skype for Business is gaining market share with over 100 million users utilizing the service for communication for work. However, some IT professionals warn that without proper design optimization, virtual app and desktop users may not find Microsoft’s Skype to have all the functionality they need to meet today’s challenging demands.

With this in mind, Citrix utilizes HDX RealTime Optimization Pack (developed with and endorsed by Microsoft) with XenApp and XenDesktop which allows Skype for Business as a virtualized application or virtual desktop, often with the same performance as a local install.

Secure Your Business On Any Device

Deployment of Citrix XenApp provides security because the applications aren’t on the endpoint so there’s no data at risk if a device is lost or stolen. The product also supports remote and mobile workers which allows IT professionals to centrally manage applications. The old way had IT reconfiguring and redeploying applications to each new PC and updated boxes. With Citrix XenApp, the PC refreshes and operating system upgrades are handled so users can continue to access their applications.

The product comes in more than one flavor. These include a tier of different features and prices including Citrix XenApp Fundamentals, XenApp Advanced, XenApp Enterprise, and XenApp Platinum.
