What is the Citrix secure access solution?

The secure access solution from Citrix provides a unified stack of cloud-delivered services that allows IT to provide a productive hybrid work environment with zero trust security. It addresses one of the biggest security challenges facing enterprises today: As the workforce becomes more distributed, and as more business apps are delivered from the cloud, traditional security architectures that require appliance-based solutions—VPN, SWG, DLP controls and WAF—are proving to be inadequate. These options don’t protect against modern-day threats coming from usage of BYO and unmanaged devices, access to the internet, or attacks looking to exploit apps and APIs. And they can’t scale to meet the demands of modern-day workforce.

Now more than ever, you need solutions capable of securing applications from unauthorized access, application-level threats, browser-based attacks, and more—all without complicating the user experience.

Citrix secure access solutions place security controls close to apps and end users, making it easier than ever to support secure hybrid work. With security at the edge, your applications are continually protected—no matter where employees work or what devices they use.

How do Citrix secure access solutions differ from other cloud 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. But while many single-solution providers offer individualized capabilities, such as zero trust network access (ZTNA) OR cloud and web security, the sheer volume of separate policies and monitoring dashboards makes this incredibly complicated for IT to deliver.

That’s why Citrix unifies the full scope of secure access needs into one unified, cloud-delivered stack—so you can simplify day-to-day management while providing an unmatched work-from-anywhere experience. There’s no need for multiple point products or specialized skillsets. Simply rely on one uniform dashboard

for full visibility and control. There are browser isolation policies to protect corporate networks from malicious content, adaptive authentication to adjust access from unmanaged and BYO devices, user behavior-based security analytics to detect and prevent threats in real-time—plus a range of security policies, from watermarking and anti-key logging to copying and printing restrictions, to proactively prevent data exfiltration attempts.

This combination of unified secure access and a comprehensive zero trust approach ensures 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.

How do Citrix secure access solutions help you stay ahead of threats?

Citrix provides the fully integrated, automated solutions businesses need to keep applications secure and employees productive.

Citrix Secure Private Access provides zero trust network access (ZTNA) to all apps, with adaptive authentication to continually evaluate access based on end user roles, locations, device posture, and user risk profiles. This always-on security solution lets organizations securely support “anytime, anywhere” distributed work and BYO programs, without risking exposure to malicious content and web-borne threats. With advanced access controls for managed and unmanaged endpoints alike, it greatly simplifies IT while enhancing the digital workspace experience for users.

Citrix Secure Internet Access keeps users safe from compromised internet sites by providing secure access to SaaS and web applications. This cloud service includes a complete stack of security capabilities—a next-generation firewall, secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, intrusion prevention and detection, and more—to continually protect data stored in both sanctioned and unsanctioned apps. With intelligence from 10+ threat engines and 100+ points of presence (PoPs), it allows businesses to protect all users against external cybersecurity threats. In any location, for every application.

Citrix Web App and API Protection service offers holistic, layered protection against known and zero-day application attacks. This cloud-based service combines a web app firewall, bot management, and DDoS protection to keep all application types secure and help you maintain a consistent security posture.

Citrix Analytics for Security uses sophisticated machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously assess, detect, and prevent risks. Each user is assigned an individual risk profile, with scoring that’s adjusted based on real-time activities. When an anomaly or suspicious action is detected, Citrix Analytics for Security acts immediately to proactively prevent unauthorized access to apps. These behavior-based analytics ensure your users can be productive from any location and device, while your company stays protected.
