How XenClient helps your business

Citrix XenClient delivers the benefits of local desktop virtualization to mobile users. The ability to work from anywhere, anytime—even offline—provides exceptional flexibility to enhance worker productivity. For IT, this flexibility is complemented by simplified desktop management as well as new levels of security, reliability and control.


Mobilize users and your business

For users, XenClient, makes it possible to work from anywhere, anytime, whether within the corporate network, travelling without connectivity or working remotely. A single device can run multiple virtual machines for instant, simultaneous access to a variety of environments: a locked-down business desktop, a personal desktop, a test and development environment, a temporary environment for contingent workers—all with high-quality video and graphics. For IT, XenClient enables the delivery of well-managed virtual desktops with granular policy control, full isolation and security to protect corporate data.


Secure your most valuable asset—information

An encrypted, locked-down corporate desktop provides the rich environment users need to do their work while protecting corporate data and eliminating the instabilities and risks that can be caused by user changes. To safeguard intellectual property, IT can define granular policies to disable removable storage or prevent data movement over networks. Integrated, automated backup ofvirtual desktops aids business continuity planning and disaster recovery.


Simplify desktop management

With XenClient, IT professionals can easily create, deploy, move, secure and protect standardized desktop images across all supported devices. A centralized delivery platform speeds the deployment of virtual desktops to new employees. Granular policy controls can be enforced on virtual desktops to ensure effective management of corporate assets, including the ability to send “kill pills” to lost or stolen remote XenClient-enabled laptops.


Make computing more reliable

With XenClient, workers can be confident that their virtual desktop will always be available when they need it. Automatic, full-time backups protect client-side data and intellectual property whenever a user connects to the Internet. Simple, self-service recovery lets users restore lost data, roll back changes to a specific point in time and even restore test environments themselves, without helpdesk assistance, so they can get back to work quickly. If a laptop is lost, stolen or fails, workers can restore the entire virtual machine to any XenClient-enabled computer. Reduced user support requirements free IT to focus on higher-value work.
