CrowdStrike integration with Device Posture
CrowdStrike Zero Trust Assessment (ZTA) delivers security posture assessments by calculating a ZTA security score from 1 to 100 for each end device. A higher ZTA score means that the posture of the end device is better.
Citrix Device Posture Service can enable contextual access (Smart Access) to Citrix Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Citrix Secure Private Access (SPA) resources by using the ZTA score of an end device.
Device Posture administrators can use ZTA score as part of policies and classify the end devices as compliant, non-compliant (partial access), or even deny access. This classification can in turn be used by organizations to provide contextual access (Smart Access) to virtual apps and desktops, and SaaS and Web Apps. ZTA score policies are supported for Windows and macOS platforms.
