CITRIX Virtual Apps and Desktops

The Hassle Free Solution for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops

Challenges facing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop) customers include

High Security Expenses

Without a standardized endpoint architecture in place, you will spend vasts amounts of cash on security updates and Windows fixes. Not to mention the countless IT staff hours you will have to deploy in order to keep your VDI up-to-date and running flawlessly.

Massive Hardware Investment

In order to connect to your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (XenDesktop and XenApp), you may be thinking of investing in a complete new set of endpoint devices or Thin Clients. Thin Clients are pricey and replacing all of your devices with them will cost a fortune.

Management Nightmare

Even after purchasing your new Thin Clients you will still need to install Windows onto all of your endpoint devices. This means more machines that need to be managed, updated, and have malware and antivirus provided for.

You know all the advantages of a VDI already. Which is why you are considering Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (XenApp and XenDesktop). However, in order to get the full benefit of your VDI you will need to look outside the windows lock-down approach.
