Citrix revamps cloud technologies to reflect a more mobile workstyle

23 May 2013

Enterprise software player Citrix has introduced new versions of its virtual desktop and file-sharing cloud technologies to reflect increasingly mobile workstyles.

At its Citrix Synergy event in Los Angeles, California, today, Citrix introduced the latest version of XenDesktop, version 7, which enables any Windows app to function intuitively on mobile devices.

It also launched the latest version of XenMobile Enterprise Edition, which includes Worx Mobile productivity apps that include email, calendar, contacts, secure web browsing, and file-sharing, as well as apps like GoToMeeting, GoToMyPC and Podio for team collaboration.

The company also launched new content sharing functions for ShareFile, including a new built-in mobile content editor.

Citrix also introduced new ShareFile sharing options with Microsoft Windows Azure.

“Now more than ever, IT decision-making is being shaped by the forces of BYOD (bring your own device), personal cloud services and a millennial generation with new ideas about where, when and how work is done,” said Steve Daheb, chief marketing officer with Citrix.

“By providing powerful cloud solutions, we are helping our customers embrace mobile workstyles to succeed in a dynamic and mobile world.”
