Disruptions can hit at any time—and change your business in an instant. Many organizations learned this lesson the hard way in early 2020, when millions of first-time remote employees1 suddenly needed secure access to corporate resources so they could work from home in the midst of a global pandemic. And not just for a few weeks, but for many months on end. While there’s no way to predict where, when or how your business might be impacted by similar events in the future, it is possible to prepare. That’s where virtual apps and desktops come in.
Whether out of necessity or to meet personal preferences, there will be plenty of times when your users need to work remotely. When they do, being able to tackle tasks without interruptions and delays will keep your company operational. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops puts employees in a position to be as productive as possible—without putting any additional strain on IT. This industry-leading solution has played a large part in many organization’s business continuity plans, and makes it easy for administrators to keep up with ever-changing user needs. It’s the most reliable way to securely deliver virtual apps and desktops to users anywhere, on any device, in any situation.
When the unexpected hits, there is a need to rapidly deploy corporate resources. With Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, you can rapidly provision desktops or applications to thousands of employees from any public cloud, on-premises or hybrid solution. Your users will have the freedom and flexibility to work on the devices and networks at their disposal, while you manage everything in one secure central console. Even organizations without a virtualization solution in place can use Remote PC capabilities to provide fast access to corporate resources, without having to build out the backend infrastructure needed for full-fledged VDI.
With traditional security strategies already pushed to the breaking point, the need for a modern solution is even more important when your attack surface swells. A startling 68% of surveyed organizations have already been victims of successful endpoint attacks2. Those risks increase exponentially during disruptions, when corporate data is regularly accessed from people’s homes and on personal devices3. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops lets you provide the right level of access for each individual user. With an advanced set of security policies to meet stringent compliance and regulatory controls, you can rest assured your most precious resources will remain protected.
From Windows to Linux to graphics-intensive apps, different remote users will be working in various environments. But if there’s one thing all remote workers need without exception, it’s consistency. Remaining productive in the midst of disruption will hinge on your ability to continually deliver the best user experience possible. Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops ensures your users will have crystal-clear voice, video and imagery at all times—regardless of network quality and location. Employees stay on task, while you handle administration of both Windows and Linux applications in a single, side-by-side management console.
