Citrix has committed to supporting Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 platform throughout its product line.
The company said that all of its products would support the latest Microsoft platform, including a new range of virtualisation and mobility tools.
Windows 8, which is scheduled to launch later this month, will be among the platforms supported by Citrix Receiver. Designed as a multi-device and multi-platform client, Citrix Receiver will allow users to access hosted data and applications on mobile devices and personal systems.
The company said that in addition to Windows 8, the Citrix Receiver software would run on iOS, Android, OS X and older versions of Windows.
Additionally, Citrix said that it would be rolling out products optimised for Intel's ultrabook notebook platform. The company's XenClient software will be available in an ultrabook-optimised version.
Designed to function as the end-user component of its virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform, XenClient allows users to access and run server-hosted instances of their systems. The platform aims to lower the cost of hardware procurement and improve data security by not leaving data stored locally.
The rollouts are part of a larger effort by Citrix to improve its mobile offerings. The company is also planning to release tools to manage data access and management for mobile handsets, tablets and notebooks.
Among the new products will be tools which better integrate Citrix products with Cisco's virtualised infrastructure portfolio. The two firms announced that they would be extending their partnership and adding tools to connect networking and security tools with Citrix virtualisation platforms.
