Deprecation of TLS versions

To improve the security of the Citrix Endpoint Management service, Citrix now blocks any communication over Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1. As a result of its weakening security, the PCI Council is deprecating TLS 1.0.

How this change impacts you

If you use mobile application management through an on-premises Citrix Gateway (NetScaler Gateway), you must update your load balancer service to enable TLS 1.2.

Older versions of the following connectors support TLS 1.0 only:

  • Endpoint Management connector for Exchange ActiveSync
  • Citrix Gateway connector for Exchange ActiveSync

Upgrade your connector as follows:

  • If you use Endpoint Management connector for Exchange ActiveSync build 10.1.3 or lower, upgrade to build 10.1.4 or higher.

  • If you use Citrix Gateway connector for Exchange ActiveSync build 8.5.0 or lower, upgrade to build 8.5.1.11 or higher.

What to do

If you use an on-premises Citrix Gateway (NetScaler Gateway), enable TLS 1.2 on your load balancer service. For information, see https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX247095. Following is a video that shows how to enable TLS 1.2 on Citrix Gateway.

To download either connector for Exchange ActiveSync, go to the Server Components section under Endpoint Management Server on Citrix.com.

Endpoint Management 19.2.0

  • Deliver enterprise apps from a content delivery network (CDN). When a user isn’t located near an Endpoint Management server, enterprise app delivery can take a while. For significantly faster app downloads, you can instead have enterprise apps delivered from content delivery network (CDN) locations throughout the world. CDN support for enterprise apps is available for iOS apps (MDM or MAM enrollment) and Android apps (MDM or MAM enrollment). CDN support for enterprise apps isn’t available for Windows apps. To get started, see Deliver Enterprise apps from a CDN.

  • DEP device enrollment change for Citrix Workspace. If Endpoint Management is integrated with Citrix Workspace, the Workspace App is included in the DEP deployment package as a required app. This feature requires that you configure your DEP account settings for iOS with required credentials set to off. Secure Hub prompts users to enroll the device in Citrix Workspace before enrolling in Endpoint Management.

  • The server property ios.mdm.enrollment.installRootCaIfRequired is now set to false. Endpoint Management uses a publicly trusted certificate chain, thus it isn’t necessary to push a root CA to devices. As a result, iOS device users no longer receive a prompt to install a root CA during enrollment.

  • The WiFi and Credentials policies now support Apple TV OS. In addition, you can now configure the Airplay Security device policy to control which devices can connect to Apple TV devices. For more information, see the WiFi, Credentials and Airplay Security device policy articles.

  • Location device policy now available for Android Enterprise. You can define location settings for Android Enterprise devices that are managed or running in managed profile mode. See Location device policy.

  • Enhanced support for Alexa for Business. Endpoint Management now includes support for Alexa for Business conferencing, adding Alexa skills to your organizations, editing skill groups. See Alexa for Business.

  • Automated actions for Windows Agent policy. Using the Windows Agent policy, you can automate actions to run on Windows desktops and tablets based on registry values. For more information see the Windows Agent device policy and Automated Actions articles.

  • For Android Enterprise, the No Restrictions option for required characters in a passcode is now deprecated. Android Enterprise devices running Android 7 or higher no longer support a passcode created without character restrictions. If you previously set Required characters to No Restrictions, this update changes that value to Numbers only. This change doesn’t affect the current user signin experience. For more information, see Android Enterprise settings.

    To specify which user groups an RBAC administrator has permission to view and manage, edit the administrator role and specify the user groups. For more information, see Configure roles with RBAC.

  • Launch third-party apps from the Workspace app. For customers with Citrix Workspace enabled: Before deploying new apps to users, you can add a comma-separated list of URLs to launch the apps from the Workspace app. For more information, see Add apps.
