Citrix XenDesktop is a desktop virtualisation solution that transforms Windows desktops and applications into an on-demand service available to any user, anywhere, on any device. With XenDesktop, you can securely deliver individual Windows, web and SaaS applications, or full virtual desktops, to PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones, laptops and thin clients—all with a high-definition user experience.
Supports any device, anywhere
Users can access their virtual desktop and subscribe to corporate applications on-demand from any PC, Mac, thin client, tablet or smartphone. This enables virtual workstyles, device flexibility, business continuity, and user mobility.
Delivers high-def user experience, even in 3D
Citrix HDX technology gives users an experience that rivals a local PC, even with voice, video and 3D graphics applications.
Deploy virtual desktops and apps for any use case
IT can deliver every type of virtual desktop—from simple and standardised, to high-performance and personalised—using a single solution specifically tailored to meet the performance, security, and flexibility requirements of each user.
Any Windows, Web or SaaS Application
With XenDesktop, you can provide your workforce with any type of application they need, including Windows, web and SaaS apps. Citrix Receiver seamlessly integrates them all into a single interface, so users only need to log on once to have secure access to all their applications.
Transforms IT with open, scalable and proven technology
XenDesktop provides a powerful desktop computing infrastructure and an open architecture that's easy to manage and support and works with existing hypervisor, storage, Microsoft, and system management infrastructures, with complete integration and automation via a comprehensive SDK.
Rather than juggling thousands of static machine images, IT can maintain one master copy of desktop images while preserving the personalisation that users need. This dramatically reduces maintenance efforts and cuts datacentre storage costs up to 90 percent.
Data security and access control
An integrated hardened SSL VPN with advanced, policy-based access control lets you give users encrypted access to desktops, applications, and valuable intellectual property from anywhere while eliminating the risk of data theft or loss.
