citrixEnterprise Mobile Device Management Rounds Out the Industry’s Most Comprehensive Mobility Portfolio, Eliminating the Need for Point Solutions from Multiple Vendors

IndiaFebruary 21, 2013 – Today, Citrix announced XenMobile™ MDM, an enterprise mobile device management solution that gives users device choice while also enabling IT to meet its management and compliance requirements. XenMobile MDM joins other Citrix solutions, including Citrix CloudGateway™, Citrix NetScaler®, Citrix XenDesktop®, GoToMeeting®, GoToAssist®, Citrix ShareFile™, and Citrix Podio™, providing organizations with a single vendor for all of their enterprise mobility needs.

 Users are demanding the freedom to choose their own devices, use any app and access their e-mail and documents from anywhere. Organizations require a solution that addresses these user expectations, while also meeting IT’s need for security. XenMobile MDM provides the foundation to address these needs through role-based management, configuration and security of corporate and employee-owned devices. The solution is built on a highly secure architecture and integrates directly with Microsoft Active Directory and public key infrastructure systems, as well as security information and event management tools. With XenMobile MDM, users can self-service enroll their devices and IT can provision policies and apps to large groups of devices automatically. IT can blacklist or whitelist apps, detect and protect against jailbroken devices, and wipe or selectively wipe a device that is lost, stolen or out of compliance.

Until now, enterprises that wanted to go beyond MDM to full Enterprise Mobility Management have had to piece together solutions from multiple vendors. Citrix now eliminates the need for multiple point solutions by offering a Mobile Solutions Bundle, which is comprised of XenMobile MDM and CloudGateway. This bundle combines industry-leading MDM with innovative mobile application management. The Mobile Solutions Bundle provides five key Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) capabilities.

Indian working professionals today are more “mobile” than ever as they own multiple devices like smart phones and tablets across platforms like Androids and Apple Ios. Hence, the purview and definition of mobility will undergo a change as organizations will now need to consider how they will deliver all apps and content in a secured manner to their user at any time regardless of the device. Our new enterprise mobility offering is extremely relevant to Indian organisations as it provides a complete solution that can manage and secure all devices, apps and data while giving users the ability to experience work and life their way.
