What are Citrix secure access solutions?

Citrix secure access solutions address one of the biggest security challenges facing enterprises today: As the workforce becomes more distributed, and as more business applications are delivered from the cloud, many traditional security architectures are proving to be inadequate. On the one hand, remote employees need fast, easy access to apps and data so they can be productive and engaged. While some of these apps are sanctioned from IT, many are potentially unsanctioned apps that could store corporate data.

At Citrix, secure access and employee experience go hand-in-hand. Why? Because now more than ever, you need solutions capable of securing applications from unauthorized access, network-level threats, browser-based attacks and more—without complicating the employee experience.

With Citrix secure access solutions, your applications are continually protected—no matter where employees work, which devices they use or what your infrastructure looks like.

How do Citrix secure access solutions differ from other security alternatives?

When it comes to securing access to apps and data, there’s more at stake than protecting against threats and vulnerabilities. For employees to remain productive and engaged, you need to ensure access is hassle-free—no need for multiple logins or continual password resets.

That’s why Citrix secure access solutions are designed to provide the best of both worlds: An unmatched work-from-anywhere application experience and advanced contextual and cloud-delivered security. The difference lies in two critical areas: VPN-less, zero-trust security and a full secure access service edge (SASE) solution.

Unlike traditional on-premises VPN, end-to-end zero trust security allows users to access both SaaS and internal web apps remotely without needing to access your entire network. This zero trust approach allows you to use a combination of contexts—such as identity, time and device posture—to grant access based on where and how apps are used.

Meanwhile, a full cloud-delivered security stack is especially critical as more employees work from home. Having a unified SASE solution provides the best, most secure application experience at scale. When you use global cloud service solutions designed for full coverage and resiliency, policies and protections are automatically updated to match the current threat landscape.
