Citrix Cites Strong Customer Demand For Comprehensive Enterprise Mobility Management

XenMobile Charts Nearly 100% Growth; Customers Hail Productivity Gains

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Citrix today announced strong growth and market momentum for its enterprise mobility business, with nearly 100 percent revenue growth in the first half of 2014. Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS), San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, and a leading bank in the U.S. are among the organizations that rely on XenMobile enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution to empower their employees with access to mobile apps and data on any device with full IT control and security.

According to Gartner, mobile is among the top three CIO spending priorities in 20141, and Citrix is seeing a trend that organizations are increasingly taking a more strategic approach to enterprise mobility. More than 80 percent of Citrix mobile platforms sales are from customers opting for XenMobile Enterprise, the EMM offering and a core component of a mobile workspace solution, versus the standalone MDM product. Organizations are choosing XenMobile because it offers the most comprehensive EMM solution to manage and secure mobile apps, data and devices combined with the broadest set of business-class productivity apps. Unique to XenMobile, these business-class mobile apps are intelligently designed and integrated to provide intuitive workflows, greatly improving end user experience when using multiple enterprise mobile apps together. XenMobile also provides the most complete and feature-rich enterprise file sync and sharing capabilities through Citrix ShareFile.

Customers Hail Productivity Gains from Comprehensive EMM Solution

Organizations, from financial services to healthcare to government, are ramping up their mobility initiatives and deploying EMM solutions at a larger scale. Citrix recently completed the deployment of XenMobile for Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System, the largest health system in Louisiana. FMOLHS relies on Citrix to streamline clinician mobile workflows, reducing the time it takes for employees to access their apps and data on mobile devices, while ensuring security and patient privacy and assisting FMOLHS with its compliance with HIPAA security rules. XenMobile enables FMOLHS to address device proliferation and empower its doctors and nurses with Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) access, improving productivity and user satisfaction.

Meanwhile, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, the chief law enforcement agency in San Diego County, is tapping the power of XenMobile to provide mobile apps and data on government issued smartphones and tablets to its mobile workers. The new workflow-driven productivity apps have allowed San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to create new mobile workflows that change how deputies in the field perform daily tasks. For example, deputies can now use XenMobile NetScaler Connector and WorxWeb to create reports with audio, photo and video files during investigations, share the report securely on their managed mobile devices, and then later, search for the report easily with a few simple taps.

XenMobile also enables a leading bank in the U.S. to provide its employees with business-class mobile apps for secure email, browser and document sharing via ShareFile on an optimized network via NetScaler, delivering a rich user experience while meeting stringent compliance and regulatory requirements.

XenMobile 9.0 & New Productivity Apps Now Available

The new release of XenMobile, announced at Citrix Synergy, is the first to bring the core elements of enterprise mobility together, including stronger security, cross-platform app delivery and mobile productivity apps, all in a unified platform. New business-class productivity apps - WorxNotes, WorxEdit and WorxDesktop - will be available to XenMobile customers in September 2014.

The latest release of XenMobile with new Worx mobile apps extends the company’s leadership in mobile app, content and device management for business-ready workspaces. XenMobile is a cornerstone of the Citrix Workspace Suite, the industry’s most complete mobile workspace solution.

Only Vendor Named Leader in Mobile, Data and Networking

Citrix uniquely delivers the best MDM, MAM and the industry’s most complete family of secure business-class mobile productivity apps via XenMobile; the most feature rich enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) capabilities through ShareFile; and the world’s most advanced application delivery controller (ADC) for mobile through NetScaler.

Citrix is the only vendor in the market to be named a leader in each of the Gartner Magic Quadrants for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites2, Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing3, and Application Delivery Controllers4.


Brian Dye, Group Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Platforms group, Citrix

“We attribute the strong momentum of our mobility business to our ability to deliver the most comprehensive EMM solution with the most complete platform, largest ecosystem and broadest portfolio of enterprise mobile apps. The key to success for our customers has been less around which platform or device to support, but identifying mobile use cases and creating streamlined workflows between apps, so users can securely get to the data needed faster.”
