With this fast ever-increasing technical growth many companies and organizations have found the necessity to expand the fleet of mobile phones so that employees can work on the go. This will increase the fluidity and productivity in work as employees can work anywhere and anytime they want to work. Several types of research show that when employees have work mobility they bring out more productivity. According to report, with such facility, employee mobility increases up to 30 percent and productivity to 23 percent.
There are also few challenges to be faced by these companies to let its employees work with portability. The question of security has always been an issue. They are required to provide secure and safe mobile endpoints with access to certain legacy line-of-business or Windows apps. Hence to curb this problem Google marked its partnership with Citrix to bring XenApp and XenDesktop to Chrome Enterprise, last year.
Google along with Citrix worked very hard after bringing XenApp and XenDesktop to Chrome Enterprise to help the business world to reach out Google cloud. Since last month, Google enabled admins to manage Chromebooks through several popular enterprise mobility management (EMM) tools, including Citrix XenMobile. Even at HIMSS, it took up the combination of Citrix and HealthCast on Chrome Enterprise in order to help the healthcare workers access electronic health records and virtualized apps securely on Chrome OS using their proximity badge.
Todd Terbeek of Citrix shared his experiences transitioning to Chrome Enterprise. Even the Chief Security Strategist, Kurt Roemer discussed how the combination of Citrix with Chrome can maintain security, privacy, and compliance.
Even conferences and seminars rather webinars are being held to make this system more updated and user-friendly. With other features in mind, this collaboration is highlighting its security benefits for critical technological work of the business. This is the topic of an IDG webinar that Google Chrome is co-sponsoring with Citrix. The Google Citrix webinar session called “Chrome OS & Citrix: Simplify endpoint management and VDI strategy” includes IDG CSO SVP/Publisher Bob Bragdon, Chrome Enterprise Group Product Manager Eve Phillips, and Citrix Chief Security Strategist Kurt Roemer as speakers, and addresses how Citrix and Chrome enable access to mission-critical business apps and create a productive workforce inside or outside corporate infrastructure.
A variety of issues will be discussed in the IDG webinar on Chrome and Citrix, with the highlights being, the way-
- Chrome and Citrix can ensure secure access to critical enterprise apps.
- Employees can be more productive through access to legacy apps in VDI.
- Citrix XenApp (XA) and XenDesktop (XD) integrate with Chrome OS.
- Citrix’s upcoming product launches and enhancements with Chrome, GCP and G Suite can help enterprise IT teams and end users.
