BARCELONA, Spain -- (Business Wire)
Citrix today announced support for Intel® Device Protection Technology
(Intel DPT), enabling enterprises to secure and manage Intel-based
Android mobile devices. Intel DPT combined with Citrix XenMobile™ will
provide enhanced hardware and software security and management
capabilities, empowering IT organizations with increased levels of
control without compromising end-user experience.
As Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs are quickly becoming the norm,
enterprises are embracing a variety of mobile platforms. According to
the Citrix “Mobility in Business” report1, 72 percent of
companies say they support or are planning to support Android this year.
However, IT organizations are challenged with Android-based devices that
are not compatible with their company’s security requirements.
Intel DPT with XenMobile will protect Intel-based mobile devices, apps
and data on it - this enables mobile employees to access corporate
assets securely and further accelerates the adoption of Android-based
devices across organizations. Intel-based devices with Intel DPT running
Android OS have enhanced layers of security built in. XenMobile will
fully leverage the manageability extensions for Android offered by Intel
DPT. In doing so, XenMobile will provide IT with full administrative
visibility and control, including access to enterprise mobility
management (EMM) capabilities, like application management; device
configuration, inventory, and remote management; and communications and
network configuration, among others.
Amit Pandey, Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Platforms
Group at Citrix
“Our close collaboration with Intel around client virtualization goes
back many years. With this announcement, we are extending that
relationship to the mobility space and providing XenMobile support for
Intel DPT. Together, we are enabling enterprises to mobilize their
employees by delivering security and manageability while providing a
seamless user experience. This helps accelerate the adoption of Android
devices in the enterprise.”
Rick Echevarria, Vice President, Intel Security Group, General
Manager, Platforms and Solutions Division at Intel
“Our partnership with Citrix is a testament to our commitment to
securing the digital world. The combination of Intel DPT and XenMobile
allows users to get all the convenience and productivity from their
mobile devices while empowering IT with more robust manageability
