Citrix has launched its new MDM software, designed to enable enterprises to allow employees to access the network from multiple devices securely.

Citrix has launched its XenMobile MDM solution, enterprise mobile device management software designed to gives users device choice while enabling IT to meet its management and compliance requirements.

"In today's complex enterprise mobility environment that includes a mix of corporate and employee-liable devices, companies need solutions that allow them to manage devices, data, and apps.  The addition of an MDM solution to the Citrix MAM and data management capabilities create a complete solution. By offering a platform for mobile enterprise management that gives options, Citrix can help give customers the peace of mind that, if their needs change, the platform can adjust," said  Stephen Drake, Programme VP Mobile Enterprise, IDC.

XenMobile MDM features role-based management, configuration and security of corporate and employee-owned devices. The solution is built on a highly secure architecture and integrates directly with Microsoft Active Directory and public key infrastructure systems, as well as security information and event management tools. The software allows users to self-service enroll their devices and IT can provision policies and apps to large groups of devices automatically. The software is also designed to allow IT to blacklist or whitelist apps, detect and protect against jailbroken devices, and wipe or selectively wipe a device that is lost, stolen or out of compliance.

"The promise of mobility hinges on the ability for IT to deliver secure apps and data to users on any device. When customers bring their own devices to work, as is increasingly the norm, IT doesn't have the tools to manage or secure the content on them. With its comprehensive portfolio of mobile solutions, Citrix offers customers the ability to say ‘yes'. Yes to total mobile freedom by providing a complete solution that can manage and secure all devices, apps and data while giving users the ability to experience work and life their way," said Amit Pandey, group vice president and general manager, Mobile Platforms, Citrix

In addition to XenMobile MDM, Citrix now also offers a Mobile Solutions Bundle for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM).  The Mobile Solutions Bundle is comprised of XenMobile MDM and CloudGateway.  This bundle combines MDM with innovative mobile application management and delivers five key (EMM) capabilities.

XenMobile MDM joins other Citrix solutions, including Citrix CloudGateway, Citrix NetScaler, Citrix XenDesktop, GoToMeeting, GoToAssist, Citrix ShareFile, and Citrix Podio, providing organisations with a single vendor for all of their enterprise mobility needs.
