In recent years, security requirements have increased as cyber threats keep growing and evolving. It is more important than ever before to secure the delivery of apps and data amidst this rapid evolution. As a leading vendor in this field, Citrix wants to help our customers increase the security of their Citrix environment, therefore reducing risk and ensuring business continuity. As part of this initiative, Citrix Consulting Services is formalizing a Security Practice to provide security-focused offerings to help our customers better protect their Citrix environments.

Did you know that your existing Citrix environment is inherently securing your business apps and data? Your platform includes technologies that can be optimized to provide enhanced security whether your environment is on-prem, hybrid, or completely cloud based.

If you have XenApp, XenDesktop, or XenMobile, you are already familiar with a platform that provides application access controls, containerization and segmentation. NetScaler Gateway, NetScaler App Firewall, ShareFile, and Federated Authentication Services are just a few of the Citrix technologies that provide some of the core tools that can be used to help further control and secure access to your apps and data, anywhere, on any device, network or cloud and in any location. These tools may already be a part of your environment today – and if they’re not, we want to share a few ways that you can take advantage of them.  We’re here to help!

The Citrix Consulting Security Practice Offers Guidance and Proven Methods of Risk Management

Until today, Citrix Consulting has focused on three major pillars to align with our product and solutions portfolio: Workspace Delivery, Networking, and Mobility. Our Security Practice complements those existing focus areas with security-focused engagements following the proven Citrix Consulting methodology (below). These engagements will be delivered by Citrix Consultants equipped with security certifications as well as the knowledge from field experience across many industry sectors including financial services, healthcare, public sector and many more.
