Today at Citrix SynergyTM, Citrix announced strong customer traction and new technology innovations for XenMobile(R) enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution. Organizations are transforming their business by adopting XenMobile as a core component of their secure workspace delivery strategy. Citrix continues to differentiate its EMM solution by enriching the mobile experience for end users and IT administrators with new business-optimized mobile apps and cloud-based mobility management delivered through Citrix Workspace Cloud (CWC). Additionally, Citrix is expanding its partner app ecosystem to deliver advanced security and performance management, while ensuring a seamless experience from any mobile device.

According to the new Citrix 2020 Technology Landscape report1, the workplace is undergoing another major shift from a physical workspace to a software-defined workspace where employees have the flexibility to work on any device with anyone, anywhere, anytime. The trends in this report validate the strong customer demand for comprehensive EMM needed for secure mobile workspace delivery. With XenMobile, organizations don’t need to piece together solutions from multiple vendors to achieve business mobility. XenMobile offers the most comprehensive and flexible solution for managing apps, data and devices with a broad set of business optimized mobile apps. This will be provided on a single platform, while integrating seamlessly with other partner and Citrix technologies, as illustrated by Workspace Cloud and the new Citrix Receiver, which supports the Citrix mouse on iPads and iPhones.

Customers Highlight Productivity Gains and Employee Satisfaction

Citrix customers worldwide, including Aer Lingus, Cancer Research UK, Saint Francis Hospital and Wayne Homes, among others, are deploying EMM as part of their secure workspace delivery strategy. For example, Citrix Innovation Award finalist, Aer Lingus, Ireland’s national flag-carrier, is working with Citrix to transform its IT operations, mobilizing the company’s employees in support of its smart travel strategy. Aer Lingus has deployed NetScaler(R), ShareFile(R), XenDesktop(R) and XenMobile as key components in the organization’s shift to a more agile and cost-efficient IT infrastructure. Aer Lingus pilots now use 3G/4G enabled iPads to access flight plans and other sensitive data via XenMobile, helping create a secure, compliant and paperless cockpit.

Meanwhile, Cancer Research UK, the world’s largest independent cancer charity, is providing its staff with access to apps and data on any device with the deployment of XenMobile and ShareFile. This builds on Cancer Research UK’s existing NetScaler and XenDesktop infrastructure. The charity is empowering workers by providing them with secure access to data, desktops and apps via any device over any network, by supporting increased and efficient collaboration on complex projects and by allowing fundraisers to store and access critical donor information quickly and easily.
