Through its Web-deployed, auto-updating client Citrix Access Gateway is easy to use, fast and cost-effective to set up and maintain. Organizations can simply supply their remote and mobile users with desk-like access from whichever location they are at, without the cost and difficulty of installing, configuring, updating and supporting client software on all devices.

Citrix Access Gateway is a protected application access solution that provides administrators with granular application-level control and at the same time offers users with access from any location. This system also allows IT administrators to take command of access and actions based on both the user and the endpoint device from a single point of control, providing better risk, compliance management and security.

With Citrix’s SmartAccess technology (which is patent-pending) administrators can control access and actions depending on both the user and the endpoint device. For instance, a user may have full access to a set of files when using their office PC (read, save locally, print, etc.) however they may be restricted to “read-only” access when connecting through an unrecognised “kiosk” device. Equally, if an employee tries to access the corporate network via a home PC that is not equipped with an active anti-virus update service, that employee may not be able to log into certain mission-critical systems. Though with SmartAccess, administrators are given complete flexibility in developing and employing corporate security policies.

Citrix Access Gateway routinely and effortlessly reconnects users to their applications and documents when they go to a different location or device, and gives users at any location an identical access that they would of experienced if they were at their desktop. For example, if a worker is connected at a customer location, he may then close his laptop and disconnect from the network, return to the office, and then be automatically reconnected – all without a single keystroke.  

Whether your organisation is small or large, the flexible delivery model will produce an exceptional secure access solution that will benefit your company. Citrix Access Gateway delivers industry-leading consistency and scalability from 1 to more than 10,000 concurrent users per appliance.  

Being equipped with end-point scanning guarantees user devices stay safe for connection to the corporate network. Access policies establish the level of user access, based on administrator-defined rules and end-point analysis.

Access Gateway provides the most comprehensive access experience for everyone: secure access to corporate data for the business, easy access for users, and simple administration and low costs for access for IT.

There are three different editions of Citrix Access Gateway available, so you can reap the benefits no matter the size of your organisation.

Standard Edition – Made for organizations with less than 500 users who require an exceptional secure remote access solution but without no need for highly sophisticated policy deployment. It’s the most economic SSL VPN solution available.

Advanced Edition – Built for organizations with less than 500 users who desire a first-class secure remote access solution that is equipped with highly sophisticated SmartAccess policy deployment, browser-only access and/or mobile device support.

Enterprise Edition – The finest secure access solution for enterprise environments, providing the most scalability and performance on the market. It is also equipped with SmartAccess capabilities, high-availability options and application acceleration and optimization built-in.

Citrix Access Gateway delivers market-leading secure application access with or without Citrix XenApp. Although when XenApp is deployed there are many additional advantages including the following:

Access Gateway offers the same benefits as the Secure Gateway feature of Citrix XenApp

SmartAccess enables incomparable control over Windows applications provided by XenApp.

Therefore using Access Gateway and XenApp in conjunction provides the benefits of a hardened appliance-based universal SSL VPN which increases security, extends user access, and reduces costs when compared with utilizing Secure Gateway. Citrix Access Gateway delivers an unmatched access experience for millions of users on a daily basis as well as market-leading security and control for IT administrators.
