Citrix Analytics for Security

Self-service search for Secure Browser

Use the self-service search to get insights into the browsing sessions of the Citrix Workspace users who are using the Citrix Secure Browser Service. Citrix Secure Browser is a cloud service that provides a safe internet browsing experience without compromising your corporate network security. When users access web applications using the Secure Browser, events such as session connect, session launch, published applications, and deleted applications are generated for each user connection. Citrix Analytics for Security receives these events and displays them on the self-service page. You can track the users and their browsing sessions.

For more information on the search functionalities, see Self-service search.
