Securely support BYOD and unmanaged devices

Provide to access IT sanctioned apps—without increasing risks

If there’s one struggle every IT professional will face, it’s the rise of flexible BYO work policies. On the one hand, letting employees and contractors use personal devices for work can go a long way in reducing costs and simplifying IT. At the same time, it’s your job to ensure company data isn’t compromised. And while corporate-owned devices can be closely monitored, a lack of insight into the health of unmanaged ones creates significant risk. Devices infected with malware can enable attackers to exfiltrate sensitive corporate data—which means you need a way to provide secure access to IT sanctioned applications while keeping unauthorized users at bay.

Executive summary

  • Malware on unmanaged and BYO devices can pose a serious risk to corporate resources
  • But limiting access to apps severely impacts productivity
  • Citrix Secure Private Access provides the security controls you need to protect sensitive data—without compromising the employee experience

Protect against malware

Malware that lives on unmanaged and BYO devices can pose a serious risk to corporate resources, with the potential to infect entire networks. Malware attacks are up an astounding 358%,1  and six in ten organizations have had systems infected with malware through web browsers.2  Citrix Secure Private Access provides controls that prevent hijacking of user credentials as well as keylogging and screen capturing malware. In addition, you can also set policies for activities like copying, pasting, and screen capturing—all without compromising the user experience or limiting productivity.

Protect your network

Browsing the internet can expose your data to all kinds of vulnerabilities. An estimated 53% of employees are using personal laptops for work, often with no new tools to secure them3, causing constant concerns over data leakage, dangerous app downloads, and unsafe content.4  With Citrix Secure Private Access, you won’t have to worry. Integrated browser isolation technology allows users to access IT sanctioned apps from BYO devices, without the need for an endpoint agent. By redirecting users away from local browsers to a hosted secure browser service, you can ensure malicious content from the internet won’t reach your corporate resources.

Get the secure authentication you need

More of the world’s employees are working from home than ever before, and the vast majority are using personal devices to access the cloud. Traffic from unmanaged and BYO devices has doubled as a result, leading to massive growth in corporate cloud attacks.5  You could reduce your risks by limiting access. But that would severely impact productivity. A better option is to simplify authentication while still enforcing security and privacy standards. Citrix Secure Private Access provides adaptive access that allows you to understand the state of end user devices and enforce granular policy control without having to use a mobile device management (MDM) solution. Offer intelligent, suitable authentication mechanisms based on roles, locations, and device posture. So your users can continue work uninterrupted, while you protect against threats.
