Citrix Systems announced that Citrix DaaS is now available in hybrid cloud and hyperscaler-specific deployment options, making it easier than ever for companies to stand up the secure, high-performing workspaces that an increasingly flexible workforce demands.

Formerly known as Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service, Citrix DaaS modernizes IT and addresses the needs of distributed workers by providing a secure, agile and easy way to quickly deliver apps or desktops from any cloud or datacenter to any device worldwide.

Using the solution, IT can:

- Enhance the User Experience - Provide consistent, simple, access to the apps and data employees need to get work done, wherever it needs to get done.

- Improve Productivity – Serve up unified, one-click access to work resources that empower employees to perform at their best.

- Strengthen Security – Store sensitive information on a secure cloud server and leverage a zero trust security approach to protect all devices, including unmanaged and Bring Your Own.

- Increase Business Agility – Scale desktops up or down on demand across all employee types - including FTEs, contingent and seasonal workers, temp labor, freelancers, designers and even partners - to meet flexible work needs.

- Simplify IT - Rapidly provision desktops in a zero-touch manner to speed onboarding.

- Lower Costs - Reduce maintenance and TCO for managed or unmanaged devices connecting to cloud-delivered apps, desktops, and management capabilities.

“DaaS business and technology needs are different for every organization,” said Carisa Stringer, Vice President, Product Marketing, Citrix. “Some customers need to balance their existing datacenter resources with cloud expansion goals, and others are new to DaaS and embarking on a cloud-first initiative with their hyperscaler of choice.”

That’s why Citrix DaaS is available in two flavors:

- Hybrid DaaS – Provides maximum flexibility to manage on-prem and cloud environments together and rapid provisioning, streamlined cloud management, and comprehensive tools to deliver hybrid work solutions.

- DaaS for Hyperscalers –Designed for simplicity, the turnkey solution allows for rapid deployment of apps and desktops on public clouds, including Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

“Companies have long relied on Citrix to deliver secure remote desktops,” Stringer said. “In expanding the options for deploying Citrix DaaS, we can help them accelerate the transition to hybrid work and unlock the benefits it can deliver.”

Citrix DaaS is part of the set of DaaS and VDI solutions Citrix delivers to enable secure hybrid work.
