Gain the controls needed to ensure the right levels of authentication and authorization
Citrix enterprise security solutions have built-in identity and access capabilities so you can control access to your apps, data, and network beyond just credentials.
Managing user access calls for a balanced approach that’s convenient for users and more secure than a simple user name and password combination.
Because passwords are so vulnerable, requiring people to use at least two forms of authentication—like a password and token—to access apps and desktops is essential for effective security. This multifactor authentication process makes it significantly harder for an attacker to impersonate a user, even if the primary password has been exposed.
With NetScaler Unified Gateway, there are several things you can do to simplify the sign-in experience for your users while encouraging the use of strong passwords.
With XenApp and XenDesktop and NetScaler Unified Gateway, you can achieve more granular access control by setting policies to allow different levels of access based on who, what, when, where, and why someone is seeking access.
Authorizing users based on task or location is especially effective for remote workers and third parties. Because NetScaler Unified Gateway integrates with role-based access mechanisms like Active Directory, you can create predefined access control policies at the both group and user level.
Being able to also authorize access based on device allows you to quarantine or grant limited access for devices out of compliance.
