FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – APRIL 26, 2022 – The way people work is changing. To meet the needs and expectations of an increasingly flexible workforce, IT has to provide fast, reliable, and secure access to the resources employees need to get things done, whether they are working at home, in the office, on the road or anywhere in between. And Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) is collaborating with Microsoft to help them do it with greater simplicity and speed.
