Box and Citrix Accelerate Cloud Adoption

By

At Box, we want to make it incredibly easy for you to get to your information from anywhere. You should have instant access to all your business content from any device, or within any application, without having to think twice. It’s that simple.

Simplicity has transformed the end user experience – it’s also incredibly important for IT departments. Innovative IT organizations that have implemented cloud applications like Box, NetSuite and Salesforce to improve the productivity and mobility of their employees are now dealing with entirely new challenges around managing all these services. They’re no longer burdened with maintenance, patches or upgrades, but instead are grappling with issues around coherent identity management, consistent security, and application silos. So how do we make the move to the cloud as powerfully simple for IT departments as it is for end users?

We’re excited to announce that Box is working with Citrix to streamline this process and help accelerate enterprise cloud adoption. Today, Citrix announced the launch of NetScaler Cloud Gateway, a new product designed to dramatically simplify and streamline the delivery and management of cloud applications such as Box. Users benefit from the simplicity of common identity credentials across hundreds of SaaS, and can also easily request and launch applications from a self-service app store. Enterprise IT organizations can take advantage of powerful user management tools to easily provision and de-provision applications, as well as the ability to monitor and manage app availability and performance at scale.

We’ll continue to do everything possible to make your Box experience powerfully simple, whether that’s through our own product or partnerships such as this. To learn more about Cloud Gateway, please visit the product page.
