Enabling the digital workspace

Kurt Goodall 
Innovative businesses leaders are embracing the cloud to simplify IT, reduce infrastructure and boost productivity. The modern workforce expects to be able to work from anywhere and from any device.
Troye technical director Kurt Goodall says a unified, contextual and secure digital workspace from Citrix enables customers to do all of this and realise the full benefits of hybrid- and multi-cloud environments while simplifying management and overcoming security challenges with a people-centric approach to security.
“Troye is now delivering secure digital work-spaces on any infrastructure with Citrix Cloud. A digital work-space is a flexible and integrated way to deliver and manage the apps, desktops, data and devices your users need in a contextual and secure way," he explains.

Citrix Cloud helps integrate technologies, platforms, devices, and clouds, to secure and simplify IT management. It also offers employees personalised access to the relevant systems and tools they need, when and how they need them.
“Citrix Cloud meets you where you are in your cloud journey by offering the simplest, most flexible way to deliver the Citrix Workspace including apps, desktops, and data. Everything your employees need to get work done, with a simple, consistent administrative experience," he adds.
Mobility has become much more common in workplaces. In order to realise the full potential for user productivity, enterprise mobility management must move beyond mobile device and app management. Mobility must extend to unified endpoint management (UEM) which serves as a core pillar of Citrix Workspace.
More importantly, IT needs the ability to manage and inventory all device types including mobile, laptops and desktops through a single management platform.
A complete secure digital workspace must be unified so that IT can configure, monitor, and manage the entire technology IT infrastructure through a single pane of glass to deliver a unified user experience.
Digital workspaces use machine learning to adapt to each worker’s patterns and exceptions, so they can get work done securely and remain productive from wherever they are.
Managing an ever-increasing list of SaaS, web and mobile apps running on any number of clouds is unwieldly and increases your security risks. Citrix Work-space, with a people-centric approach to security, enables IT to take control and proactively manage security threats in today’s distributed, hybrid multi-cloud, multi-device environments.
Furthermore, a people-centric security approach puts the user at the centre of your security framework, synthesising everything known about the user and their behaviour to provide contextual access, security controls, and predictive analytics for full visibility across the network and user ecosystem.
"You have your workplace with you, in your pocket. Even if you leave the office and shut down your session and you start working anywhere else again, the cursor will be in the same position as you left it in the office. This is the future and this is how it should work," he adds.
With the new Work-space app, one gets complete choice of device, cloud and network, while maintaining IT security and control - even over corporate SaaS and web apps. Built on trusted Citrix solutions for Windows app and desktop delivery, device security, secure file sync and sharing, network security, and intelligent analytics, Citrix Workspace offers unmatched experience, choice, and security.
"Only Citrix can fully aggregate all apps and data across all applications—both on-premises and cloud—to deliver the right experience to the right user at the right time. It offers the most complete and integrated work-space to enable people to securely access their apps, desktops and data from anywhere," he concludes.
