The definitive guide to Citrix Workspace
Published on 02 Sep 2021
Developed by Citrix Systems, Citrix Workspace is a workspace platform that was launched in 2018. Workspace allows users to access programs and files from different sources through a single application or web browser. It is an effective solution for businesses that need to update their IT infrastructure to keep up with evolving needs. The main benefits organizations get from using workspace can be divided into three main areas:
- User experience and productivity
- Cloud transformation and management
- Security and compliance
How workspace improves user experience and productivity
Workspaces allow for single sign-on (SSO). This makes it possible for users to access all apps, desktops, and files they need by signing in only once. This feature works with all mobile, SaaS, and web apps via the Citrix Gateway service. Workspace also has a unified interface that brings together everything that teams need to work together. It easily integrates with many SaaS vendors like Salesforce, SAP Ariba, G-Suite, Office 365, Oracle, Workday, 15Five, DocuSign, Marketo, ServiceNow, Slack, Adobe, Concur, Box, Dropbox, Tableau, and others. Through Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, users can seamlessly switch between devices and continue an active session. This means that a user can start work on their desktop and easily switch to their mobile device without the need to start a fresh session or lose any progress that has been made. These features combined with many others allows Workspace to deliver a significantly better user experience and can lead to an increase in productivity.
Workspace’s impact on cloud transformation and management
Workspaces can be deployed on public, private, or a hybrid cloud set up. They can also be used on-premise. All of the deployed workspaces can be administered and managed from a single administrative interface. This administrative interface is contextual. It has role-based access control. The Virtual Desktop Interface can be hosted on a physical platform, hypervisor, or various clouds. It works with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Azure, Oracle, etc. Using Workspace makes it easier for businesses to complete their cloud transformation and manage their infrastructure.
Security and Compliance
Workspace also has features for network security and compliance. It provides end-to-end visibility and user behavior analytics. It allows for secure browsing of all internet content. Web filtering allows IT teams to control what internet content users can access. User behavior analytics make it possible to easily identify anomalies and enforce security policies.
