Citrix Raises Bar for SD-WAN Security

Company enables new capabilities to easily apply people-centric
security policies across branches and applications

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The days of manually applying security policies across branch locations
are officially over. At least for customers of Citrix
Systems, Inc.
(NASDAQ: CTXS). The company today announced
next-generation capabilities within its SD-WAN
solution
that enable enterprises to easily administer user-centric
policies and connect branch employees to applications in the cloud with
greater security and reliability.

“Today’s enterprise is more distributed than ever, requiring IT to
provide secure access to corporate systems and data across multiple
locations, networks and clouds,” said Chalan Aras, Vice President,
SD-WAN and Intelligent Traffic Management, Citrix. “In the past, this
meant manually applying security policies across branch locations. With
enhanced security features delivered as part of Citrix®
SD-WAN
companies can now easily extend user-centric policies to the
branch and connect employees to applications in the cloud with a few
clicks.”

Simplified Branch Networking

Citrix SD-WAN helps enterprises deliver a reliable, high-performance
workspace experience when accessing SaaS apps, cloud workloads, virtual
apps and desktops or traditional data center resources. With Citrix
SD-WAN, enterprises can:

  • Simplify branch networking by converging WAN edge capabilities,
    including built-in stateful firewall, WAN Optimization and more.
  • Define security zones to apply different policies for different users.
  • Provide integrated, single sign-on, remote access and content
    inspection in a single solution.
  • Easily on-board, manage and monitor services.
  • Confidently break out internet traffic from branches to optimize WAN
    resources.

Easy Administration

By integrating with a series of third-party APIs, Citrix allows
enterprises to take security to the next level and:

  • Synchronize location information with the Citrix SD-WAN management
    plane.
  • Establish IPsec tunnels between branches and security enforcement
    points for traffic inspection and threat prevention with high
    availability.
  • Automatically apply controls to protect users and applications whether
    they are connecting to SaaS applications or services over the internet.

“With the API integration between Citrix SD-WAN and the Zscaler Cloud
Security Platform, enterprises can enable secure local breakouts for
applications and resources hosted on the Internet simplifying
operations, lowering cost and complexity and ultimately providing a fast
and secure user experience,” said Punit Minocha, Senior Vice President
of business and corporate development, Zscaler.

Zscaler is part of a robust global ecosystem of Citrix SD-WAN technology
partners helping large enterprises and SMBs alike securely transition to
the cloud and simplify branch networking and the first to enable
Citrix’s new integration capabilities.

“Companies today demand flexibility and choice in how they defend their
networks,” Aras said. “Our new API integrations are designed to provide
this and enable them to accelerate their cloud migrations in an
efficient and cost-effective way.”
