Cloud computing may have transformed IT, but the shift hasn’t come without growing pains. Here are the top challenges organizations face when moving to the cloud:
Poor user experiences
In a hybrid-world of on-prem and cloud, users find themselves struggling with a host of obstacles when accessing their apps and data across different environments. They’re left with disconnected experiences, confusing storage systems, and too many logins to remember while trying to get work done. On top of all that, users often experience poor application performance due to limited network bandwidth and heavy content, especially when it comes to virtual apps and video.
SaaS and web app security risks
SaaS applications are tricky to secure. That’s because they reside in a third-party’s infrastructure, and IT has limited control. As a result, organizations are left wondering how they can enforce protective data measures — like restricting copying confidential information from sanctioned apps or preventing the spread of malware from unsanctioned apps. With a solution to manage SaaS and web app security, organizations can prevent a lot of unnecessary risks.
Visibility into cloud-hosted business services isn’t just key to protecting company data. It’s also key in optimizing your systems to improve performance and user experience. But visibility can be difficult given the many data points to monitor across multiple platforms.

How a secure digital workspace can help you get more from your clouds
Citrix Workspace is a secure, digital platform that helps organizations reap the benefits of better user experiences, with fewer security incidents, and intelligent, actionable insights. Here’s how it can also help yield a better return on your cloud investments:
Delivering a better user experience
Citrix Workspace SSO lets users log in once and gain access to all of their cloud and on-prem applications including virtual, mobile, SaaS or web apps — simplifying the experience for your users and boosting productivity.
Users can access and sync all their files from a single interface, regardless of where their files are stored – in public clouds, private clouds, or network shares. And with virtualization, they can open files from apps they don’t have.
As most users have more than one device, Citrix Workspace ensures that the user experience automatically adapts based on the type of device. For example, employees using their smartphones can access native mobile apps, whereas mobile apps will not appear for those same employees when they log in using their Windows laptops. Instead, they’ll get an experience that’s right for their device — and right for them.
Ensuring fewer security incidents
Citrix Workspace offers dynamic, contextual security controls designed to protect company data regardless of where it’s stored. Whether in the cloud, on-prem servers, or on your endpoints, your data remains secure — at rest or in transit.
A single point of access
Citrix Workspace allows all your user traffic to go through a single access point, thereby providing visibility across all your application traffic. This single access point ensures you can enforce all your security policies in a much more consistent and timely fashion. It also makes it easier to manage your solutions, reduce cost, and lets users log in once for access to all their apps and data.
Contextual and dynamic access
Rigid security policies limit your employees’ ability to be productive. Citrix Workspace is designed to recognize user patterns and behaviors, granting or restricting access based on the context and situation — and saving everyone time.
Secure SaaS and web
With Workspace, IT administrators have the ability to govern access and approve SaaS apps with a simplified, single sign-on experience. By filtering access to specific websites and website categories, you can protect your organization’s network and end-user devices from malware and data leaks. This also lets you enforce enhanced-access security policies for SaaS applications, and allows you to isolate and tighten security for certain web browser activities.
Capitalizing on intelligent insights
User-based security analytics
Citrix Workspace provides IT security analytics based on user behavior and machine learning. It then correlates information across a number of different service-feeds from apps, devices, networks and data access, providing a risk profile for each user. Equipped with security analytics, it also gives IT the ability to take automated actions if required.
Insights are also crucial to optimizing both IT and overall business operations. By identifying and highlighting potential latency problems with cloud application performance and network traffic, Citrix Workspace can take automated and corrective actions and intelligently redirect traffic, or prioritize application delivery based on the user’s role.
The unique benefits of Citrix Workspace
Citrix Workspace brings together a complete solution to help you and your organization harness cloud efficiency. It also ensures you’re able to:
