Citrix Access Gateway

Secure Remote Access Solutions from Anywhere

Citrix® Access Gateway™ is the only SSL VPN to securely deliver any application with policy-based SmartAccess control. Users have easy-to use secure access to the applications and data they need to be productive. Organizations can cost effectively extend access to datacenter resources from outside the office while maintaining unprecedented control through comprehensive SmartAccess policies.

SmartAccess – Ultimate Flexibility in Controlling Access and Actions
Citrix’s patent-pending SmartAccess technology allows administrators to control both access and actions based on both the user and the endpoint device. For example, a user may have full access (read, save locally, print, etc.) to a set of files when utilizing their office PC – but may be restricted to “read-only” access when connecting through an unrecognized “kiosk” device. Similarly, if an employee tries to log into the corporate network via a home PC that does not have an active anti-virus update service that employee may not be able to access certain mission-critical systems. With SmartAccess, administrators are provided ultimate flexibility in developing and implementing corporate security policies.

Best VPN Solution Performance and Scalability
Our flexible delivery model creates an excellent secure access solution for any size organization. Citrix Access Gateway provides industry-leading reliability and scalability from 1 all the way up to 10,000 concurrent users per appliance.

Easy to Deploy, Administer and Use
Citrix Access Gateway delivers the best end-user and administrator experience of any SSL VPN solution on the market:

* End-users: Access Gateway was designed from the ground up to provide an excellent user experience. Single point of secure remote access and single sign-on capabilities minimize the number of authentication prompts, creating easy navigation to all key resources –- including Windows applications (delivered with or without Citrix® Presentation Server™), e-mail, file shares, internal web applications and more. Additionally, “always-on access” ensures sessions are automatically reconnected after losing a network connection or roaming between access points.

* Administrators: Access Gateway provides fast, easy and cost-effective deployment and ongoing management. The client is web-deployed and is automatically updated without user intervention, and management tools are highly intuitive. Organizations can easily provide mobile and remote users with desk-like access from any location -– without the cost and complexity of installing, configuring, updating and supporting client software on each device.
