How to Modernize your IT security
According to Citrix If your company’s cybersecurity efforts are becoming overly complex, you’re not alone. Most of today’s IT teams are juggling too many security tools to be operationally effective. it’s more than just corporate apps and data that are at risk. Inefficient security policies can lead to a poor user experience—the kind that turns routine tasks into tedious, time-consuming processes. It’s time to find a better way to support secure hybrid work, without slowing down productivity.
- As employees work from more locations and apps move to the cloud, your attack surface is expanding fast.
- Many traditional IT solutions aren’t capable of protecting against the latest cybersecurity threats.
- Citrix equips your business with the modern security approach you need to keep data secure, no matter where people work or what devices they use.
Remote work has officially gone mainstream, with a full 100% of IT leaders planning to adopt hybrid work models2. That means users are working on networks IT can’t secure, with devices that aren’t managed—a big risk for companies that rely on network-centric solutions like traditional VPN. Insider threats are a major concern3 at these organizations, where one in three have already experienced a ransomware attack or breach.4 Thankfully, there is an answer. With a modern alternative to VPN, IT can continually monitor each individual session. This zero trust network access (ZTNA) solution from Citrix lets you automatically apply security controls based on user risk scores, locations, and device posture. And when you use Citrix DaaS, built-in policy controls add an extra layer of security to keep data protected across devices, locations, and networks. Employees have seamless access to the resources they need, while you keep threats away from your network.
As applications balloon—there are 40 to 60 in use by each department at the average enterprise5—so do the complexities. Each service can have its own authentication method, which not only confuses users but is also difficult for IT to configure. And with 92% of organizations hosting at least some of their IT environment in the cloud, the risk of a breach is high6. You need a better way to secure those apps, no matter where they’re hosted or how they’re deployed. Citrix Web App and API Protection allows you to do just that. Easily protect your entire environment against known and zero-day attacks with application security as a service.
Find and stop threats
As employees work from more locations, and as apps move to the cloud, the potential for compromised accounts is everywhere. And with the average cost of a breach at an all-time high of $4.2 million7, you can’t afford a single overlooked threat. That’s what Citrix solutions are for—to give IT a complete picture of all network traffic, users, files, and endpoints. Taking inputs from Citrix Secure Private Access and Citrix DaaS, Citrix Analytics for Security lets you identify and automatically respond to suspicious activity.
