Deploying with Citrix Endpoint Management, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop

You can have users connect to Windows, web, SaaS, and mobile applications and virtual desktops hosted in your network. You can provide access to your applications and desktops for remote and internal users by using Citrix Gateway, Citrix Endpoint Management, and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Citrix Gateway authenticates users and then allows them to access their applications by using Citrix Receiver or Secure Hub.

Users connect to their Windows-based apps published in Citrix Virtual Apps and virtual desktops published in Citrix Virtual Desktops by using Receiver and StoreFront.

Citrix Endpoint Management contains Citrix Endpoint Management, which allows users to connect to web, SaaS, and MDX applications. Endpoint Management allows you to manage web, SaaS, and MDX applications for single sign-on (SSO), along with ShareFile documents. You install Endpoint Management in the internal network. Remote users connect to Endpoint Management through Citrix Gateway to access their applications and ShareFile data. Remote users can connect with either the Citrix Gateway plug-in, Receiver, or Secure Hub to access applications and ShareFile. Users who are in the internal network can connect directly to Endpoint Management by using Receiver. The following figure shows Citrix Gateway deployed with Endpoint Management and StoreFront.

If your deployment provides access to MDX applications from Endpoint Management and access to Windows-based applications from StoreFront, you deploy Endpoint Management in front of StoreFront as shown in the following illustration:

If your deployment does not provide access to MDX applications, StoreFront resides in front of Endpoint Management, as shown in the following illustration:

With each deployment, StoreFront and Endpoint Management must reside in the internal network and Citrix Gateway must be in the DMZ.
