Citrix Workspace app for HTML5

Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 is hosted on StoreFront servers for on-premises deployments, and Content Delivery Network (CDN) for cloud deployment. Citrix Workspace app enables users to access virtual desktops and hosted apps from a web browser.

Resources delivered by Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops are aggregated in a StoreFront store. It’s then made available through a Citrix Receiver for Web site. With Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 enabled on the site, users can access desktops and apps within their web browsers.

Citrix recommends the following:

  • For a secure connection, open Citrix Workspace app sessions from HTTPS-based stores. Some features might not function when using HTTP-based stores.

There’s no need for the users to install Citrix Workspace app locally on their devices, as it’s a zero install client.

You receive centrally managed app and desktop selection experience from StoreFront when you use Citrix Workspace app with the centralized customization and branding capabilities of StoreFront 3.0.
