Other virtual app and desktop vendors may promise a streamlined approach to delivering VDI. But without desktop as a service (DaaS) functionalities, management quickly becomes cumbersome and time consuming. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops provides advanced monitoring and cloud-native management—everything you need to scale fast and meet the needs of your flexible workforce.
With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, you choose what works best. Deploy as a cloud service, on-premises or hybrid mix of both. Then use one central cloud console to update your environment in a few clicks. Your users receive a high-definition experience while centralized management and monitoring keeps resources secure.
