Manage identity and access for all applications

Provide a better user experience with one entry point to SaaS, web, and virtual apps

Employees must interact with an ever-increasing number of applications in order to complete business tasks, creating a complex mix of SaaS, web, and virtual applications for IT to manage. Many IT departments lack a solution for controlling application access, and in some cases, aren’t even aware of SaaS apps being used by other departments in the organization. This opens the company to compliance risk as users interact with the apps and potentially expose protected information.

In addition to security risks, user productivity is lost due to logging into multiple apps. Having to remember multiple passwords can lead to bad password habits, not to mention a frustrating user experience. Today’s hybrid/multi-cloud environment calls for a centralized platform for IT to enforce security and access policies across all applications.

Citrix Access Control, a component of Citrix Workspace, enables seamless single sign-on (SSO) to all SaaS and web apps, as well as  Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, using any standard browser. This provides end users with instant access to all apps, data, and files from any device, at any location and over any network. Unlike traditional SSO and access management solutions, Citrix Workspace also provides secure access to the internet and enables IT to implement policies that define what their users can access on the internet.

Citrix Workspace prevents unauthorized access to confidential information with multi-factor authentication for employees, partners, and customers who may be accessing your organization’s apps. To enhance security, admins can deliver Citrix Workspace through a cloud services platform and implement time-based, one-time passwords. This gives IT a simple way to configure strong authentication without negatively impacting the end-user experience. Citrix Workspace also enables you to leverage your existing Citrix Gateway appliance with RADIUS to provide support for third-party authentication providers such as DUO, RSA, or Symantec.

Citrix Workspace supports third-party identity providers and repositories such as Active Directory, Azure Active Directory or Okta Universal Directory. With Citrix technology, you are not required to synchronize user accounts and credentials to multiple directories. You can protect your investments, employ a hybrid approach if desired, and simplify IT management.

If you are currently using a Citrix Gateway appliance, you’re able to leverage your existing set up and still enjoy the Citrix Workspace experience. You will get access to the new user interface and Citrix Workspace enhancements while continuing to use your on-premises infrastructure.
