Upcoming Reciever Q4-2010
Additional Features and Benefits
- New User Experience Enhancements – Citrix Receiver includes several new HDX™ technology enhancements, extending a rich, high-definition experience to new touchscreen tablets and smartphones. Precise, multi-touch, intuitive gestures allow users to seamlessly interact with existing corporate apps that were never designed to run on touchscreen devices. Whether zooming in on a 3D graphic, flipping through a presentation, or creating a new document, even legacy applications respond like new with incredible speed and accuracy.
- Data Security for Any User and Device – Citrix Receiver now includes the new Citrix XenVault™ technology plug-in, ensuring that any document created by a corporate-delivered app can be automatically stored in an encrypted folder. This is an ideal solution for contractors and employee-owned laptops, allowing IT to maintain full security of corporate intellectual property without having to manage non-corporate devices.
- Zero-touch, Silent Updates – Centralized management of applications, desktops and data gives IT complete control over security, performance, and user experience, with no need to own or manage the physical device or its location. With Citrix Receiver, IT can now add or remove services and push automatic and scheduled downloads and updates centrally, with zero-touch from users.
- Open and Extensible Framework – Citrix Receiver supports a wide range of third-party plug-ins, including support for application delivery solutions like Microsoft App-V. Citrix also includes a comprehensive SDK that enables third party software and technology vendors to build additional plug-ins that enhance the Citrix user experience.
Pricing and Availability
The new Citrix Receiver release will be available for download free of charge this quarter on the Citrix website or directly off independent app stores for mobile device users. Exact availability varies by device. Access to Windows apps and desktops in Citrix Receiver requires the use of Citrix XenDesktop or Citrix XenApp™ in the datacenter. Secure single sign-on access to web and SaaS apps requires Citrix NetScaler® with the new Citrix OpenCloud™ Access module, shipping later this quarter.
