FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – December 11, 2018 When it comes to solutions that enable people to work anywhere, anytime using any device, Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) is recognized as a leader in providing them. In 2018, the company was recognized as a leader in all of the technologies required to create intelligent, digital workspaces that enable employees to work in a flexible, intelligent and secure way that unlocks innovation, engages customers, and moves their business forward.

A Leader in Mobility

Work today happens anywhere. And employees expect to be able to connect anytime using the devices of their choice. In 2018, Citrix landed Leader positions in three IDC MarketScape reports focused on mobility solutions:

  • The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2018 Vendor Assessment (doc #US43294318, July 2018), recognized Citrix for having a “strong affinity toward UEM technologies and end-user computing management.”
  • The IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software 2018 Vendor Assessment (doc #US43294018, July 2018), identified Citrix® Workspace™ as a “well-designed single point of access tool for all Workspace services, from app access (across any device type) to provisioning new devices, as well as security functionality and cloud recourse access.” The evaluation additionally noted that Citrix® NetScaler’s “strong remote access control, VPN, granular inspection, and security of mobile traffic are among the most advanced capabilities in this category relative to competitors.”
  • And the IDC Marketscape: Worldwide Enterprise Mobility Management Software for Ruggedized/IoT Device Deployments 2018 Vendor Assessment (doc #US44246518, September 2018), called out Citrix as “among the more forward thinking in terms of how PCs, mobile devices, and other smart connected endpoints will tie together to create connected workspaces for end-user computing use cases.”

A Leader in Unified End Point Management

Workplaces today need to be flexible. But they must also be secure. With Citrix digital workspace solutions, companies can give employees access to the apps they prefer to use in one unified experience so they can work how they want, and dynamically apply security policies based on their behavior and environment to ensure their applications, information and devices are safe.

Last month, Citrix was ranked as a leader in Unified Endpoint Management solutions by independent research firmForrester Research, Inc. in a report titled “The Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2018, The 12 Providers that Matter Most and How They Stack Up.” (The Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2018, Forrester Research, Inc., November 2018) and received the highest possible scores in the product vision, commitment to innovation, product support and services, application security, data security and identity and access management criteria.


A Leader in Employee Collaboration and Productivity

With Citrix content collaboration solutions, companies can serve up personalized access to the systems, information and tools employees need to efficiently and securely collaborate and be their most productive.
