Working Together in Azure: Revolutionise App Delivery With Citrix
It has been noted in studies by McKinsey that collaboration can improve a company’s productivity by as much as 30%. But trying to increase communication and collaboration without increasing availability of required apps makes the process futile and the alternative of offering a more open access approach to tools opens up the risks associated with compliance, security, record-keeping and usability.
In this blog post, we’ll show how Citrix and Microsoft 365 will keep your data safe, your company compliant and, most importantly, your employees productive.
Deploying Citrix-on-Azure with Microsoft 365
With more than 155 million users of Office 365 worldwide, completing the Microsoft 365 package with Windows 10 creates a versatile solution for company communication, collaboration, efficiency and security.
But implementing Microsoft 365 is only the beginning for creating a more productive workplace. The next logical step for any organisation is to partner your Microsoft 365 with Citrix-on-Azure, complimenting your existing investment to deliver secure productivity, simplified document-sharing and greater communication.
Citrix lets your employees load up their virtual desktops from any device at any location, while giving you governance over access management and security, direct from the source. It’s complete freedom for your employees, and absolute control for you.
Take advantage of Microsoft-level security
The reality is that most organisations operate in a hybrid IT environment where on-premise business applications and cloud-hosted applications work in combination. These unique combinations can mean that employees struggle to access applications unless they’re within the secure network of the office.
- Retain access control
- Deploy system updates direct to virtual machines
- Proactively shut down threats with enhanced machine learning threat protection.
Just a few years ago remote working was very difficult for most companies to implement. Employees couldn’t access the tools they needed, and even when they could, employers weren’t prepared for the change in culture and outlook required to make it work.
Now, remote working is a necessity for almost any business – and this means that your applications must be able to keep up.
Citrix Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on Azure gives employees the freedom to make any location their office for the day, whilst employers can rest easy knowing their vital data is secured at the source within Azure, and is not vulnerable on the localised device.
Building on what you know
Citrix and Microsoft 365’s combined enablement means communication and productivity are improved, too. For example, Teams means employees can operate in a transparent, unified way, regardless of location. All of this makes for a more efficient, productive workplace.
We will guide you through the implementation of Citrix in Azure to show the difference that can be made with little disruption. Our experts are on hand to advise you through the process, helping your business collaborate more efficiently and securely, all the while retaining control of your all-important data.
