Now that we all agree that the consumerization of IT is a reality, the next thing to do is implement a BYOD program.  With so many so called solutions available few can offer a complete end-to-end BYOD solution that Citrix can.

One of the key components of this solution is Citrix CloudGateway which can securely deploy and manage all your mobile, web, SaaS and Windows applications and desktops  (XenDesktop/XenApp) along with follow-me data (ShareFile) from one simple to use, self-service app store.

What is CloudGateway?

CloudGateway is comprised of the follow components:

Citrix Receiver which can be installed on any device only need a user’s enterprise email address to automatically provision a user for internal and remote access using a auto-discovery service called Account Services. This service eliminates the need for users or IT to download files and manually import them into Receiver.

NetScaler Access Gateway which provides secure remote access from outside the corporate network while maintaining the highest level of protection over sensitive corporate data.

StoreFront (the next-generation version of Web Interface) which provides a set of service interfaces for use by Receiver that enable access to AppController and XenDesktop/XenApp.

AppController which manages and enables access to an organization’s mobile, web and SaaS apps and ShareFile data resources.

ShareFile which enables users to securely store, sync and share data, both within and outside the organization.
