Citrix Worx App Gallery is now available with more than 100 committed third-party apps.
This represents 25 percent growth since it was announced at Citrix Synergy in May.
The Worx App Gallery eliminates the need for IT administrators to go through the time consuming process of procuring and verifying mobile apps.
All Worx-enabled mobile apps are enterprise-ready with security, policy and provisioning controlled by Citrix XenMobile.
“BYO is unstoppable, and to truly mobilize enterprise users, companies need more than mobile device management. They need a comprehensive solution that includes a way to provide employees secure access to mobile apps,” said Amit Pandey, VP and general manager, Mobile Platforms Group at Citrix.
The Worx App Gallery features enterprise-ready third party and Citrix mobile apps, including WorxMail, WorxWeb, Citrix ShareFile and Citrix PodioTM, with the management and security controlled by Citrix XenMobile.
Worx-enabled apps run in encrypted containers that secure data at rest, data in use and data in motion.
XenMobile can block users from accessing sensitive corporate information from an unsecured Wi-Fi network at a coffee shop. These capabilities combined with inter-app communications controls comprise nearly 60 different granular policies of which IT can take advantage.
Independent software vendors (ISVs) can leverage the Worx App Gallery to showcase their apps to a wide enterprise customer base, including more than 260,000 Citrix customers and more than 10,000 resellers.
Through the Citrix Ready Worx Verified program, app companies can leverage an integrated lead-management system, Citrix marketing and branding assets and tools and the Citrix demo cloud environment to drive sales engagements.
The Citrix Ready program currently boasts more than 100 committed third party apps.
“By creating an app ecosystem that supports its end-to-end enterprise mobility management solution, Citrix is taking a step in the right direction to meet those needs,” said Stacy Crook, Program Manager for Mobile Enterprise Research at IDC.
