This page walks you through how to get started with onboarding and setting up the Access Control service for the first time. As an admin, you must set up authentication, configure access to SaaS apps, and specify the content access settings in Access Control service. Once the settings are complete, the end users can access the service from the Citrix Workspace app or the workspace URL.
Operating systems support: Citrix Workspace app is supported on Windows 7, 8, 10, and Mac 10.11 and above.
Browser support: Access workspaces using Internet Explorer 11, or the latest versions of Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

How it works
Citrix Access Control helps IT and security admins to govern authorized end-user access to sanctioned SaaS and enterprise hosted web apps. User identities and attributes are used to determine access privileges and access control policies determine privileges that are required to perform operations. Once a user is authenticated, access control then authorizes the appropriate level of access and allowed actions associated with that user’s credentials
Citrix Access Control combines elements of several Citrix Cloud services to deliver an integrated experience for end users and administrators.
