Through its partnership with Citrix, Troye can now help customers build a digital workplace on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This frees end-users from traditional work hubs and allows them to work securely on virtually any device, from any location, at any time.

Citrix has achieved AWS Digital Workplace Competency status based on deep experience in enabling work from anywhere. This has come thirty years after Citrix pioneered a radical idea: work isn’t constrained to an office. The company believes that with the right technology, it can be done anywhere.

Troye CEO Helen Kruger says Citrix continues to be recognised for its expertise in delivering secure digital workplaces. “Employees need a consistent work experience that enables them to perform to the best of their ability. It is critical that we enable our customers, through technology, to get the work done safely and securely and from any location.”

She echoes the dedication of Citrix, to help customers leverage the agility, breadth of services and pace of innovation that AWS provides. Existing customers are already using Citrix solutions on AWS to securely offer access to apps and data regardless of time, network, device or work location.

The AWS Digital Workplace Competency helps customers find highly specialised AWS Partners offering solutions on AWS. It helps them effectively support remote workers and business continuity with end-to-end Digital Workplace in the cloud.

Achieving the AWS Digital Workplace Competency differentiates Citrix as an APN member that possess deep domain expertise in one or more of the following core categories: Endpoint Management, Application Management or Collaboration Platforms.

Kruger says AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from start-ups to global enterprises. “To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.”

Citrix offers a comprehensive range of solutions that are proven to scale and integrate with AWS and ensure the security, reliability and high performance that application delivery and management today demands.

Citrix and AWS collaborated to develop an AWS QuickStart for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop Service on AWS. Using the service, companies can deliver secure virtual apps and desktops to any device, and leave most of the product installation, setup, configuration, upgrades, and monitoring to Citrix, while maintaining complete control over applications, policies, and users and delivering a high-quality user experience.

As a validated AWS Outposts solution, Citrix ADC can be used to bring native AWS services, infrastructure, and operating models to on-premises facilities in a simple, cost-effective way and deliver a consistent hybrid experience.

Leveraging Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) ingress routing features, companies can redirect traffic flowing in and out of a VPC through Citrix ADC to ensure highly available and reliable performance and simplify the integration of network and security appliances within their network topology.

AWS Quick Start for Citrix ADC empowers companies to speed and automate configuration and greatly reduce the time, costs and skill level involved. Additionally, using the Citrix SD-WAN orchestration service, customers can quickly connect their branches and data centers to the AWS Transit Gateway and access resources across any Amazon VPC or other connected networks.

Citrix also offers Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop Service on AWS. Using the service, companies can deliver secure virtual apps and desktops to any device, and leave most of the product installation, setup, configuration, upgrades, and monitoring to Citrix, while maintaining complete control over applications, policies, and users and delivering a high-quality user experience.
