Citrix Analytics for Security

Citrix Analytics for Security (Security Analytics)

With the advantage of work from anywhere, anytime, any device on any network, sensitive corporate data is exposed more than when users only worked from an isolated corporate office. Malicious users have a large attack surface to target. IT teams are charged with delivering a great user experience without compromising security. Citrix Analytics for Security can help bridge that gap with a focus on user security.

What is Security Analytics?

Citrix Analytics for Security continuously assesses the behavior of Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops users, Citrix DaaS (formerly Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service) users, and Citrix Workspace users. It applies actions to protect sensitive corporate information. The aggregation and correlation of data across networks, virtualized applications and desktops tools enables the generation of valuable insights and more focused actions to address user security threats. Also, machine learning supports highly predictive approaches to identifying malicious user behavior.
