used to come to the office every day and work from company-managed assets.
Today, they may be working at home, in the office, on the road and anywhere in
between using unsecured personal devices and networks. It’s opened a whole new
set of challenges that IT must manage. And to help them do it, Citrix Systems,
developed Citrix Secure Private Access, a cloud-delivered, Zero-Trust Network
Access (ZTNA) offering that protects access to apps and data from managed,
unmanaged and Bring-Your-Own (BYO) devices, enabling employees to work the way
they want in a secure, reliable and productive manner, wherever they happen to
“The IT pendulum has been swinging toward flexible work models for years, and
the pandemic has accelerated the velocity,” said John Grady, senior analyst at
Enterprise Strategy Group. “Employees and the applications and gear used to
support them have become highly distributed, and to keep them secure, IT leaders
need to rethink their approach and look to cloud-delivered solutions that push
enforcement to the edge and incorporate zero-trust principles along with
centralized policy management to improve their posture.”
Enabling Secure Hybrid Work
Citrix Secure Private Access is a cloud-delivered, ZTNA solution that
provides contextual access to IT-sanctioned applications whether they are
deployed on-prem, or in the cloud and delivers security controls for managed,
unmanaged and BYO devices. Using the solution, IT organizations can:
Provide zero trust network access to all apps, with adaptive authentication
to continually evaluate access based on end user roles, locations, device
posture, and user risk profiles.
Securely support distributed work and BYO programs without risking exposure to
malicious content and web-borne threats.
Simplify IT while enhancing the digital workspace experience for users.
They can also enact a fresh approach to security that accommodates the realities
of work today by giving employees the flexibility to work where they want using
the devices of their choice, while ensuring that corporate data and assets
remain safe. And many already are.
Take HDI Global. With a rapidly growing work-from-home staff in Brazil, the
international insurance company had a choice to make: increase investments in
traditional servers and virtual machines, or enact a more modern approach to
securely delivering apps. It chose the latter and implemented Citrix Workspace™
with Citrix Secure Private Access.
“With Citrix, we have found a way to make remote work more secure, while
increasing productivity and delivering a better employee experience,” said
Gilliard Delmiro, CTO, HDI.
Fueling Business Growth
Aspirus Health, a non-profit, primary care health care organization based in
Wisconsin, has found a way to fuel business continuity and growth.
“Citrix has changed the rules for mergers and acquisitions at Aspirus Health,”
said Chris Fallin, the company’s Vice President of Systems Technology. “With
Citrix Secure Private Access, we can provide M&A targets with access to core
systems and applications such as EHR and ERP months in advance of traditional
activities such as network, domain, user and workstation migrations to keep
business moving. And, of critical importance, we can do so securely and
confidently using a zero-trust approach.”
Citrix Secure Private Access is part of Citrix’s portfolio of secure access
offerings, which when used in conjunction with Citrix Analytics for Security™,
provide a unified, comprehensive approach to securing apps and data while
improving the employee experience and simplifying operations.
