Enterprise IT is facing an increasing need to deploy secure mobile applications to their end users. As a result, the use of Citrix XenMobile MDX for containerizing and deploying mobile apps securely is growing and finding use in a variety of consumer verticals.  Mobile software releases are being delivered more frequently which can present a challenge for IT admins tasked with the job of wrapping mobile apps with the necessary security policies.

Today we introduce MDX Service as a Citrix Cloud Labs service

Citrix Cloud Labs is where you can preview, try and comment on emerging Citrix Cloud services. The MDX Service can be used to automate the process of wrapping iOS and Android mobile applications with MDX (an app container technology) to be managed by XenMobile. You can wrap apps created within your organization or the Citrix XenMobile Apps using the MDX service.
