About The Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

If you go for the Premium Plus option of Citrix Workspace you will also get the ability to include Citrix Virtual Desktops within your Citrix Workspace App. IT administrators can centrally control their users’ virtual desktops within the Workspace App including how they are accessed based on user profile, device, network or location.

Regardless of whether a user is using a Mac, Windows or Android device they will get the same experience using their desktop environment via the Workspace App.

Works great on any device

Across the board security

By including Citrix virtual apps and desktop services within your Citrix Workspace, cloud IT managers can now push out updates and security patches to all users immediately. This saves a lot of time compared to the traditional method of doing it one machine at a time and ensures there are no weak links in your network. It’s also perfect if users are working on devices outside of the IT managers’ control, for instance at home. If they are using the Workspace App you can push out updates to these devices too.

Reduced Costs

By virtualising your apps and desktops with Citrix you’re presented with a range of cost benefits too. Any expensive on-site servers can be decommissioned, as too can any air-con used to cool them. It increases the life-span of your current hardware as all you need is an internet connection to access all the cloud based content and, should a device need replaced, you can get a low cost thin-client device and still give users great performance regardless of what programmes they need to access.

Reduced Costs

Take Your Citrix Virtual Desktop Anywhere

Having access to Citrix hosted virtual desktops within the Workspace App allows you to also reap the many benefits that you’d get with a hosted desktop solution including:

  • Same Windows environment regardless of the device you’re using – including a Mac!
  • Resume your virtual desktop session exactly where you left off
  • Fast performance with cloud-based not device-based processing power
  • Your users are no longer tied to a work-issued device as they can log in to their Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops on their personal devices
