Get field-proven security with XenApp/XenDesktop 7,15 LTSR
Considering a migration to Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7,15 Long Term Service Release (LTSR)? Robust, stable security is a top reason to get started today. Citrix added multiple security enhancements since our last LTSR, so you can feel confident about deploying them as part of this new, stringently tested release.
During our upcoming Technology in Practice webinar, Citrix Consulting Enterprise Architects will discuss the top three security capabilities of this release:
- Federated Authentication Service: Support for FAS increases authentication flexibility, such as giving trusted external users SSO access to your applications or adopting password-free authentication methods.
- Workspace Environment Management: The new Application Security feature of WEM, powered by Microsoft AppLocker, harnesses Windows capabilities to create multi-layer defenses – such as granular Allow or Deny rules for individuals or groups.
- XenServer LTSR with BitDefender HVI: By combining the security policy engine of XenApp/XenDesktop with XenServer LTSR, featuring Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection for attack detection, you can add extra protection to your Citrix stack.
If you’re looking for practical guidance, including lessons learned from the field, join this one-hour webinar. You’ll get the benefit of our architects’ knowledge and experience coupled with the expertise of our Security Practice in handling real-world scenarios.
Live Q&A: As a bonus, receive expert answers to your questions at the conclusion of the webinar presentation.
