At the turn of the new year, we talked about PaaS and mobile enterprise strategies. Today, we are excited to announce our participation as an inaugural partner in the Citrix Ready Worx Verified Partner Program, announced this morning at Synergy. The program and Citrix MDX technologies are extending and promoting mobile app security and controls to the 260,000 existing Citrix enterprise customers and over 10,000 re-sellers via the new Citrix Worx App Gallery.
Under the program, enterprise applications can leverage a Citrix Worx App SDK to easily embed MDX Technology in mobile applications, thereby smoothly centralizing IT configuration, management, security and control. Citrix MDX app container technology adds features such as data encryption, password authentication, secure lock and wipe, inter-app policies and micro VPNs to mobile applications.
Citrix’s MDX Technologies further extends the benefits of running mission critical applications on Apprenda’s PaaS in conjunction with Citrix’s MDX technology for securing these apps on the user’s mobile devices. Enterprises using private PaaS and leveraging Citrix MDX technology in the app find a comprehensive mobile strategy with the access users need and the security IT must uphold.
We have some exciting mobile announcements coming in a few short weeks, but for now, we look to Citrix as a pioneer in securing mission critical applications to mobile devices.
