Citrix Expands Secure Access Solutions to Empower Hybrid Work

Employees expect the freedom to choose where and how they work and a seamless, productive experience. IT is on the hook to deliver on this while keeping things secure. It’s a tall order, and Citrix Systems Inc. is expanding its secure access solutions to help do it.

The company announced the launch of Citrix Secure Private Access, a cloud-delivered, Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) service that protects access to apps and data from managed, unmanaged and bring-your-own (BYO) devices, enabling employees to work the way they want in a secure, reliable and productive manner, wherever they happen to be.

IT wants to accommodate what users want, but traditional solutions make it difficult.

“In today’s dynamic enterprise environments, solutions designed to defend static perimeters fall short in protecting critical assets and delivering a good end-user experience,” said John Grady, cybersecurity analyst at independent research firm ESG. “Cloud-delivered zero trust network access solutions can enhance performance by pushing enforcement to the edge, increase efficiency with centralized policy management, and ultimately improve security through the incorporation of zero trust principles.”

This is exactly what Citrix Secure Private Access is designed to enable.

Leveraging adaptive authentication and access policies in conjunction with security controls, including watermarking, preventing clipboard access, protection from keylogger and screen capturing malware and browser isolation, Citrix Secure Private Access provides simple, contextual access to all apps and data employees need to perform at their best in a consistent, reliable manner. Using the service, IT can:

  • Provide access to users based on zero trust principles of least privilege access
  • Enable security controls to allow flexibility and choice in devices used to get work done
  • Support all access types and work scenarios
  • Keep access to all application types, including TCP, browser-based and VDI, secure in a unified manner across multi-cloud environments

And they do it in a way that is completely transparent to employees, allowing them to work free from complexity and distractions with the confidence that their information and devices are safe.

They also can remove the friction and frustration from work caused by everything from the need for employees to manage multiple logins and install multiple end point agents to restrictions on devices they can use and locations they can connect from by providing instant and seamless access to apps using native browsers or using an agent on any device.

Citrix Secure Private Access is designed to enable the modern, zero-trust approach to securing apps that remote work environments demand as it:

  • Adaptively grants least-privilege access based on user behaviors and access patterns
  • Continuously monitors and assesses user activities and automates security controls based on anomalies detected
  • Provides unified management and distributed enforcement across the entire environment

Citrix Secure Private Access is the latest addition to Citrix’s portfolio of secure access offerings, which when used in conjunction with Citrix Secure Internet Access™, Citrix SD-WAN™ and Citrix Web App and API Protection™, provide a unified, comprehensive approach to securing  apps and data while improving the employee experience and simplifying operations.
