Citrix is looking to expand its virtual desktop offerings for both traditional workstations and mobile devices.
The company on Tuesday unveiled a series of products aimed at helping users run applications on mobile devices, including iOS, Android and Windows Mobile tablets.
Among the new offerings will be Cloud Gateway 2. The application management tool will allow firms to offer and manage Windows, OS X, Android and iOS applications as well as HTML5 web applications. Windows 8 Metro tools are also planned for future release.
Chief executive Mark Templeton said that the platform would look to offer an all-inclusive solution for running all enterprise applications on tablet hardware as well as give new options for developers and administrators in deploying applications.
"You build around the idea of anyness, being able to deliver any app," Templeton said.
"And not only build around them, but deliver them."
The company is also looking to update a number of other components to help push enterprise mobility and consumerisation. The Citrix Receiver client tool will add the ability for users to access Sharepoint services.
The Sharefile platform will offer users and businesses the ability to have data stored independently from the device itself, allowing users to access data from applications across multiple devices.
While productivity and mobility are both goals of the platform, the company also sees its mobile offerings as a way to maintain security and compliance on user devices.
Citrix product marketing director Natalie Lambert told V3 that by keeping data and applications from enterprise applications separated from personal files, companies are able to protect their data and delete sensitive information when need be.
"Our approach is making that productivity possible, but doing it in a much less invasive way," Lambert explained.
"All we are trying to do is containerise and control what matters to the organisations and leave the users to do everything else that they want to do."
Yeah, sorry about all that, simpers Zuckerberg
