XenApp Questions

XenApp Projects By Members

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.
