A new first: At Citrix Summit 2018 in Anaheim, Citrix honored the highest-achieving members of our global alliance partner ecosystem.

Applications and services are becoming more distributed across clouds and data centers, and users around the globe need reliable access, whether they’re at the company branch, at home, or on any other network. A secure digital workspace is a flexible and integrated way to deliver and manage the apps, desktops, data, and devices your users need in a contextual and secure fashion. A unified, contextual, and secure digital workspace from Citrix, in conjunction with leading partner technical innovation, creates a digital perimeter, and the below Citrix Strategic Alliances exemplify that.

The Strategic Alliance Awards highlight the real and ongoing innovation in securely accessing and delivering apps in a hybrid- and multi-cloud world. I am proud to be able to reward the Citrix Alliance Partners that have gone above and beyond to enable the best possible digital workspace experience for our customers.

The award winners were announced at both Global and Geo events at Citrix Summit 2018 on January 9.
