What is XenApp?

XenApp solves IT challenges with scalable and secure application delivery by providing remote access to Windows apps and data over any network, on any device Ð and now enables employees to access Linux virtual desktops side-by-side with Windows resources for a complete workspace experience. As the only server-based computing solution that is Common Criteria certified and native FIPS 140-2 compliant, XenApp reduces the risk of data loss and prevents unwanted intrusions by delivering virtual apps and data as an on-demand service to users based on location- and device-specific features and security configurations.
