Citrix Helps Protect Apps

Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), has launched App Protection, which enables companies to protect apps and data on unmanaged endpoints and ensure their corporate systems and information remain safe, the company said.

As employees around the world adjust to the new normal of working from home, many are using whichever endpoint gives them the quickest access to the resources they need to get work done. And this often includes personal devices such as laptops, tablets and phones.

When present on a device, key logging malware captures each key stroke entered by a user, including user names and passwords. Screen-capture malware periodically takes a snapshot of the user´s screen, saving it to a hidden folder on the device or directly uploading it to the attacker´s server where the information can be exploited. App Protection is uniquely designed to prevent this.

A unique feature thwarts keylogging and screen-capturing malware that may live on personal devices by scrambling keystrokes entered into a device and sending the attacker undecipherable text. It also prevents data exfiltration from screen shot malware by turning all screen shots into blank pictures.

With App Protection enabled, employees can stay productive by working on a personal, unmanaged endpoint without sacrificing security.

Citrix is powering a better way to work with unified workspace, networking, and analytics solutions that help organizations unlock innovation, engage customers, and boost productivity, without sacrificing security. With Citrix, users get a seamless work experience and IT has a unified platform to secure, manage, and monitor diverse technologies in complex cloud environments.
