Citrix Gateway

Common Deployments

You can deploy Citrix Gateway at the perimeter of your organization’s internal network (or intranet) to provide a secure single point of access to the servers, applications, and other network resources that reside in the internal network. All remote users must connect to Citrix Gateway before they can access any resources in the internal network.

Citrix Gateway is most commonly installed in the following locations in a network:

  • In the network DMZ
  • In a secure network that does not have a DMZ<

You can also deploy Citrix Gateway with Citrix Virtual Apps, Citrix Virtual Desktops, StoreFront, and Citrix Endpoint Management to allow users to access their Windows, web, mobile, and SaaS applications. If your deployment includes Citrix Virtual Apps, StoreFront, and Desktops 7, you can deploy Citrix Gateway in a single-hop or double-hop DMZ configuration. A double-hop deployment is not supported with earlier versions of Citrix Virtual Desktops or Citrix Endpoint Management.
