Citrix Unveils Latest XenMobile Release and Technology Preview of New Mobile Productivity Apps

Today at Citrix Synergy™, Citrix announced a new release of its Citrix XenMobile® enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution and a technology preview of new WorxNotes™, WorxEdit™ and WorxDesktop™ workflow-driven mobile productivity apps. The new XenMobile release includes significant enhancements to user experience, platform security and support, as well as management integrations that improve scalability and speed time to value for business. The new workflow-driven mobile productivity apps from Citrix are key business apps with intelligent integrations that seamlessly work together, resulting in a simple and intuitive user experience. For example, people can join a meeting directly from their calendar, take notes and distribute them to all participants with just a few simple taps. As a result, mobile employees can be more productive on their tablets and phones, while IT retains control.

Mobility is a top priority for virtually every organization, from healthcare providers to government institutions, as evidenced by XenMobile’s more than 100 percent year-on-year growth in Q1 FY2014. In order to stay agile and drive business growth, today’s organizations are recognizing the need to securely deliver mobile workspaces that provide all the business tools and information their employees need to be productive in the office and on the go. Over 85 percent of Citrix Mobile Platform customers are choosing integrated EMM offerings versus standalone MDM technologies, because they recognize the urgency for securing and delivering more intelligent and intuitive apps to effectively mobilize their workforce. XenMobile now offers the industry’s most complete family of secure workflow-driven mobile productivity apps for business.

New XenMobile Release Highlights

  • WorxMail™ & WorxWeb™ Enhancements - Adds new, intuitive features in WorxMail for secure mobile email to help people navigate quickly between email, calendar and contacts. The latest version reduces the time spent reading, deleting and sorting through emails.

WorxWeb for secure web access sports an improved user interface and support for offline viewing of webpages.
  • Windows Phone 8 Support - Integrates and extends support for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8. IT organizations can manage iOS, Android and Windows devices from a single platform with a common feature set and improve productivity with new WorxMail and WorxWeb for Windows Phone 8.
  • Enhanced Security Capabilities - Secure data in motion and at rest on mobile devices with cross-platform FIPS 140-2 compliance, including iOS and Android devices, and third party penetration testing.

People can securely and easily attach media files, audio clips, white-board discussions and camera objects directly into WorxNotes to capture and share notes in any format.
  • WorxEdit - Simplifies editing of local files on mobile devices that are received as attachments in WorxMail, stored on corporate desktops or saved in ShareFile. The app provides rich content editing for office documents stored locally on mobile devices with the ability to sync and share the edits with colleagues.

“The use of mobile devices for work is now a part of everyday life at March of Dimes. Secure access to business apps and data is absolutely critical for our staff, but what adds to their research and operational productivity is that these apps are integrated and work seamlessly together. Citrix has a solid understanding of that with their focus on secure workflow-driven mobile productivity apps.”
