Citrix Ready verification is an assessment process designed to ensure that third-party products are compatible with Citrix products. The Citrix Ready designation is awarded to third-party products and solutions successfully verified with a specific Citrix product using the Citrix Ready verification methodology.
No, the Citrix Ready designation is not a product certification, nor does it provide any warranty or guarantee on any product, solution or application. To be designated Citrix Ready, products must pass the Citrix-supplied verification test. The verification test is published and open for all to view. The designation of a product as Citrix Ready simply indicates that either the company or Citrix has completed the verification test. The Citrix Ready designation does not provide any performance or operational guarantee of any kind. The Citrix Ready designation is an indication the partner’s product is compatible with Citrix and will operate in a Citrix environment. For additional information, please refer to the Citrix Ready legal agreement.
