As organizations look to simplify IT, many are considering desktop as a service (DaaS). And at the top of DaaS lists from leading industry analysts is Citrix. But while Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service has always offered robust capabilities, our portfolio has continued to expand along with customers’ changing needs. We're going beyond virtual app and desktop deployments to offer our most flexible service yet. With Citrix DaaS, you can choose from different delivery models to secure the hybrid workforce, onboard contractors, support seasonal staff, unify teams during a merger or acquisition, and more.

For customers who currently need to stay in the datacenter to meet operational, regulatory, or compliance needs, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops will remain as robust as ever. The only change is that you now have even more flexibility. While you’re never required to move workloads to the cloud, the option is always there. Transition to Citrix DaaS at any time to start your cloud journey, and we’ll make sure it’s easy to manage your on-premises VDAs side-by-side with public clouds.

As a pioneer in the VDI space, Citrix remains as committed as ever to evolving our solutions to match the business landscape. And today, that means ensuring organizations have everything they need to support the growing hybrid workforce. For some, on-premises VDI will continue to play a key role. For others, a range of DaaS deployment options will ensure IT can meet new use cases as they arise.

The biggest benefits of Citrix Workspace remain. But now, instead of purchasing all capabilities in one package, you can select which components to include as you build your own digital workspace: DaaS, ZTNA, performance analytics, security analytics, and more. The choice is yours. And the options are always there.

If you're a current Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service customer, you will be automatically transitioned to the Citrix DaaS edition that corresponds with your current subscription—and start receiving new functionalities right away. For customers who are new to Citrix DaaS, and for those who would like to add features when renewing, we’ve made it easy to choose the right deployment model based on business needs.
