NetScaler SMS Authentication

Citrix NetScaler, the industry’s most popular load balancer, can also be configured to use SMS authentication, with Citrix Receiver, XenApp and XenDesktop. Our partner SMS passcode makes the SMS software, it is easy to install and easy to use. The Citrix Reciever already supports SMS Authentication.

In previous posts we show how Authentication can be done at the Citrix Server Web Interface, or using LDAP. Now that Citrix Receiver runs on a variety of mobile devices, you can use SMS Authentication and Receiver on your device of choice.

The technology leader in SMS Authentication now supports Citrix. Read more about it here.

We used the previous infrastructure for this Proof Of Concept, because it was already setup with XenApp and XenDesktop. The only new piece was the SMS Passcode server.
