If you’re looking to provide:
> your remote and mobile users with reliable connection to their central applications and resources from outside the corporate LAN;
> the ability to run your business management software remotely from the equipment at your users’ disposal without having to upgrade or buy new workstations;
> adequate response across long distances over low-speed connections; and
> secure communications across the Internet without opening special ports on network firewalls that increase vulnerability to worms, viruses and other "malware".
Then Citrix is the most effective answer
Citrix Access Essentials
Designed for smaller organisations with between 5 and 75 Windows users, Citrix Access Essentials provides secure remote access to any line-of-business applications, including Star Practice Management, Microsoft Navision, SAP Business One or any other application over the Internet. The software makes it possible to query, update and analyse corporate information residing at the main office from home, while travelling or from a mobile device with just a standard Internet Web browser.
Citrix helps to fully realise the value of the IT investment by giving users access to business applications wherever they happen to be, leading to higher productivity, more responsive operations and better decision-making.
Realising the Benefits
Citrix Access Essentials scrambles all remote transmissions
with secure encryption techniques and enables access control based on the user’s role and authorisation level. Further, the application executes on the main corporate computer so data remains physically protected. With these powerful security measures, you can be sure that corporate data is not being compromised over the public network.
Citrix Access Essentials helps ensure a consistent level of performance even when remote connections are relatively slow. In fact, the Citrix solution only requires 20Kbps of network bandwidth because such a small amount of data is actually transmitted across the connections.
Rather than requiring each user’s device to be outfitted with enough horsepower and the right software environment to run your applications locally, Citrix Access Essentials enables virtual access from any device or operating system that can connect to the main site over the Internet with a standard Web browser.
Managing software updates
Citrix Access Essentials makes it possible to incorporate new versions, hot fixes, and patches once at the main computer without disturbing any of the user’s equipment. This saves time and money, and makes the upgrades to your business applications available much more rapidly.
Controlling user actions
For security reasons, organisations may wish to limit the actions a remote/mobile user can take or which areas may be accessed. Such rules can be set up quickly and easily with the Citrix software.
Unnecessary travel, long-distance calls, and high-speed connection costs can be dramatically reduced when you can depend on secure Internet access to your corporate environment.
Citrix brings secure Internet access to all your authorised users. All they need at the remote end is a standard Web browser.
