About Citrix XenMobile
XenMobile, produced by Citrix, lets companies manage mobile devices, apps, and data. It allows users to have choice of mobile devices in a BYOD environment while also ensuring compliance with company policy. It can be used in an SMB or enterprise environment, and is compatible with Android, Windows, and iOS devices. Customers of Citrix include Cirque du Soleil, the U.S. Army, Ingersoll Rand, the NYSE, Dale Carnegie Training, and Disney Interactive.
XenMobile is designed specifically to help facilitate BYOD implementation. With XenMobile, users have single-click access to all mobile, SaaS, and Windows apps from a single company-controlled app store. There is both an onsite option and a cloud option for management, depending on which choice better suits the needs of the company. XenMobile can also be used to deliver enterprise-developed apps through the Worx Mobile Apps interface. IT can easily provision policies and ensure compliance by blacklisting certain apps from devices or barring ‘jailbroken’ or ‘rooted’ devices from the system. Multi-factor single sign-on allows for quick and secure authorization, preventing password sprawl.
The British Library used XenMobile to help incorporate BYOD into their workplace in response to increased employee demand. This has improved morale among employees and allowed the British Library to extend mobile use beyond the small percentage of workers who previously qualified for corporate BlackBerrys. The deployment went better than expected, and company information has remained secure.
