Quickly deliver secure apps from Azure to any device

New Citrix cloud service combines the simplicity of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp with the enterprise security and scale of Citrix XenApp

Microsoft announced the next step in its broad partnership with Citrix, helping us develop the next generation of the Azure RemoteApp service. The new Citrix XenApp Essentials Service (previously XenApp “express”) will build upon Microsoft’s vision of Azure RemoteApp by tapping industry-leading XenApp technology to provide additional management, user experience, and security features.

CEO Kirill Tatarinov shares commitment to Azure RemoteApp customers.

Introducing XenApp Essentials

Fastest, easiest way to deliver apps in the cloud

XenApp Essentials, the new application virtualization service, will combine the power and flexibility of the Citrix Cloud platform with the simple, prescriptive, and easy-to-consume vision of Microsoft Azure RemoteApp. XenApp Essentials will provide superior performance and flexibility by moving the backend infrastructure to the cloud, simplifying app delivery without sacrificing management or end user experience.

What does this mean to current Azure RemoteApp customers?

Citrix will bring simplified management that will mirror many of the workflows existing Azure RemoteApp customers have come to love. XenApp Essentials will also simplify app provisioning, enhance monitoring, strengthen security and optimize app delivery, which are key features many existing Citrix customers have come to love. Citrix and Microsoft are working closely together to develop migration tools that will help current Azure RemoteApp customers take advantage of the service when it becomes available.
