The new Citrix service includes provisioning, securing, onboarding, and managing apps while taking away the complexity from every step. Citrix says its new product is the first and only solution of its kind, empowering IT to deliver a superior experience that keeps users engaged and productive.
At first glance, you may think Citrix has released an MDM-style solution or another option for streaming corporate applications over a WAN, including the Internet. However, the new Citrix App Delivery and Security Service is smarter, simpler, self-healing, and more secure than what has come before.
By labelling its service as intent-based, Citrix means it is proactive, continually learning about your application environment including the health of servers, along with the state of the Internet and new cyberthreats. You prescribe business and technical intent, and Citrix will convert this into application delivery and security policies and configurations by itself.
Its self-healing capabilities mean there is no more manual configuration and troubleshooting, with the service itself continuously optimising and tuning its parameters for the best possible application experience.
The service also includes holistic, layered protection that consists of a web app firewall, DDoS protection, bot management, and more facilities to protect valuable applications and APIs from threats, keeping your business running.
You may not be able to control the Internet, but - sure to warm the heart of any systems and network manager - Citrix says you can prevent Internet bottlenecks from affecting your application performance.
In fact, Citrix App Delivery and Security Service is continuously analysing 10 billion data points to adjust traffic for you, providing an optimal application experience every time. It caters for over a billion user sessions across 50,000 networks in over 200 countries, giving massive real-time visibility into the state of the Internet through Citrix Intelligent Traffic Management.
"Citrix App Delivery and Security Service is going be a game-changer for SaaS and microservices. It has the perfect mix of customisability and built-in intelligence that will allow enterprises to deploy their revenue-generating apps quickly and securely without sacrificing the functionality that their customers depend on,” said Geoffrey Knaak, technical manager, senior systems administrator, Aria Systems.
