Citrix Access Gateway VPX provides secure access for applications and desktops. It gives IT administrators a single point to manage access control and limit actions within sessions based on both user identity and the endpoint device, providing better application security, data protection and compliance management. It is available as a virtual appliance that provides all the functionality of a physical appliance on any industry standard server.
High performance, scalable, SSL VPN for XenApp or XenDesktop
Access Gateway provides the best secure application access for Citrix XenApp and Citrix XenDesktop virtual desktops and applications. Using Access Gateway with XenApp and XenDesktop:
- Reduces costs by up to 45 percent with easier configuration and maintenance
- Minimises client maintenance through web-deployed, auto-updating clients, and even clientless access options
- Strengthens security through a hardened appliance that is easier to maintain, upgrade, and lock down
- Ensures granular access control with integrated HDX SmartAccess capabilities
- Consolidates points of access by combining your traditional IPSec VPN and Secure gateway into a single appliance.
The patent-pending SmartAccess technology of Access Gateway allows administrators to manage access control and set policies that define acceptable actions based on user identity and the configuration of the endpoint device. For example, a user may have full access (read, save locally, print, etc.) to a set of files when utilising her office PC - but may be restricted to read-only access in less secure remote access scenarios such as connecting through an unrecognised kiosk device.
Let users work from anywhere
Access Gateway provides an excellent user experience. Single point of secure remote access and single sign-on capabilities minimise the number of authentication prompts and enable easy navigation to key resources including Windows applications, including those delivered via Citrix XenApp, desktops delivered by Citrix XenDesktop, e-mail, file shares, internal web applications, and more.
Same scalability as physical appliances
Access Gateway VPX delivers all the same scalability as a physical appliance and can support 500 concurrent users per virtual machine when configured according to specification.
Workload and infrastructure consolidation
Access Gateway VPX is the ideal solution when datacenter space or infrastructure is limited. It can be deployed on the same physical server with other virtual appliances such as Citrix Branch Repeater VPX, Citrix NetScaler VPX, or other virtual networking services.
