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