Company offers market-leading solution in two flavors, enabling organizations of all sizes to quickly and easily enable secure hybrid work
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – APRIL 20, 2022 – The world of work is fast shifting to hybrid models. And to support and accelerate the transition, Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) is doubling down on Desktop as a Service (DaaS). The company today announced that Citrix DaaS is now available in hybrid cloud and hyperscaler-specific deployment options, making it easier than ever for companies to stand up the secure, high-performing workspaces that an increasingly flexible workforce demands.
The news couldn’t come at a better time.

“Businesses want a modern and secure desktop, application, and data delivery strategy that reflects the reality of how users work and can keep up with the rapid change of business applications and devices, without amplifying the management and security burden that already weighs heavily on IT shoulders,” said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “DaaS possesses the unique combination of attributes that appeals to businesses across industries: improved time to value, cost reduction, and enhanced security.”

Work today is flexible. And the solutions used to drive it must be as well.
“DaaS business and technology needs are different for every organization,” said Carisa Stringer, Vice President, Product Marketing, Citrix. “Some customers need to balance their existing datacenter resources with cloud expansion goals, and others are new to DaaS and embarking on a cloud-first initiative with their hyperscaler of choice.”
That’s why Citrix DaaS is available in two flavors:
“Companies have long relied on Citrix to deliver secure remote desktops,” Stringer said. “In expanding the options for deploying Citrix DaaS, we can help them accelerate the transition to hybrid work and unlock the benefits it can deliver.”
