Citrix XenDesktop lets you deliver on-demand virtual desktop and applications anywhere your users work, anywhere your business takes you, to any type of device, bringing unprecedented flexibility and mobility to your workforce. XenDesktop unlocks the full productivity and creativity of every worker while helping the entire organisation adapt rapidly to new challenges and opportunities.

Any device, anytime, anywhere

With Citrix Receiver, XenDesktop 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.

HDX user experience

Citrix HDX technology gives users an experience that rivals a local PC, even with Flash multimedia, video collaboration, USB peripherals, and 3D graphics.

Beyond VDI with FlexCast

Citrix FlexCast delivery technology lets you deliver desktops for any use case¿from simple and standardised, to high-performance and personalised¿using a single solution. With FlexCast, IT can deliver every type of virtual desktop¿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.

Open, scalable, proven

XenDesktop provides a powerful desktop computing infrastructure that's also easy to manage and support. The open architecture works with your existing hypervisor, storage, Microsoft, and system management infrastructures, with complete integration and automation via the comprehensive SDK.

Single-instance management

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 datacenter 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.
