Citrix has announced plans to expand its Workspace to Google Cloud. In this way, the flexibility and choice when switching to the cloud should be increased. Citrix announced the news at its Synergy event this week in Atlanta.

Citrix has already launched its solutions for the smart workplace, but says it is still adding intelligence. It does this using state-of-the-art capabilities to deliver a unified, context-aware user experience on any device and in any network.

Workspace gives employees access to a single sign-on environment with all the apps and information they need. The environment includes a standard integration feature for over 150 business applications, including Salesforce, Workday, SAP Ariba and SAP Concur, ServiceNow, Microsoft Outlook and G Suite. There are also 100 micro-apps built for common software services, which automatically offer tasks based on priority and relevance.

Completely new is the integration functionality for collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams and Slack. As a result, employees are offered their work in a constant stream, so that they do not have to change their environment all the time.

Desktop-as-a-Service

Citrix also has a Desktop-as-a-Service in mind. This should make it easier for IT departments to provide a consistent and secure working environment in the cloud. Employees have access to their own desktop and all the services and applications they need to perform their work.

Companies can use Citrix Analytics to ensure a good balance between flexibility and the need for a highly secure environment. A dynamically applied security policy is therefore in place. Furthermore, the solution ensures the full registration of security threats and the automated handling of those threats.

Finally, Citrix has added a new feature to make businesses less vulnerable to attack and data theft. The function should protect apps and content within the digital workstations from malware, such as keylogging and screen capture. The features provide endpoint and browser security for all connections to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. This applies to both personal and managed devices.
