Citrix today has announced an integrated service where the company’s NetScaler product will work directly with Microsoft Intune.
Citrix states the benefits of this integration as…
- Cost-effective: By using NetScaler Unified Gateway, there is no per-user license for creating an SSL VPN tunnel. While other vendor solutions charge a per-user license fees on top of appliance and software costs, we do not and we help customers save costs by eliminating per-user license fees.
- Conditional Access: The solution provides an added level of security, as IT admins can now define access control policies to on-premises resources like MS Exchange, SharePoint, or any other application based on the state of end user mobile device. In order for a mobile device to get access to on-premises resources, it must be enrolled with Microsoft Intune
- Improved End User Device Security: In addition to conditional access to corporate resources based on whether devices are enrolled with Microsoft Intune, this solution provides more granular security. It can provide deep scans of mobile devices for risk factors, such as a jailbroken/rooted state, outdated antivirus signatures, or installed malware and also take actions based on the result. This capability ensures Microsoft Intune enrolled mobile devices are secure and centrally managed.
