Web and SaaS apps were supposed to make things easier, right? Create a platform-independent application that runs in a free browser that anyone can access. Turns out, browser-based apps can raise just as many problems as traditional client apps.
Often times, they’re designed to run not only in a specific browser, but in an exact version of that browser. Think about all of the apps you’ve seen that were designed for IE7, only to learn that they won’t run in Chrome or even IE8 or 9. With users choosing their favorite browser—IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari or the new Edge browser—you get caught in the endless cycle of updating apps every time a new browser is released. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Break the cycle, not the apps
Browser-based apps are the most frequently virtualized app in XenApp for a reason. With XenApp, you publish the app in the right browser and with the right plugins and it opens right away for every user, no matter what device they choose.
An even easier solution is to use the Secure Browser Service we offer through Citrix Cloud, which is based on XenApp technology.
Both options not only solve the browser compatibility issue, but they also keep those browser-based apps secure in the datacenter along with the sensitive user information that goes with them. Unlike standard web apps that cache data on the user’s personal device, where it can easily be compromised.
How easy is it, really? We’ll show you.
We’ve made it simple to virtualize your web-based apps. You assign the “correct” browser for the app and users can launch it in the browser of their choosing. We’ll even show you how it’s done in the webinar, “Are browser updates breaking your apps?”
Join us for the webinar and learn how to:
- Publish and distribute a virtual web app in minutes
- Efficiently manage your browser-based apps with app virtualization
- Reduce common security challenges associated with web and SaaS apps
- Deliver one-click, VPN-less, secure remote access to internal web apps
