Continuous user risk assessment with Citrix Analytics for Security
To protect Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops users from exposure to dynamically changing threats, we’re moving into a realm of continuous, behavioral-based risk assessment. This requires assessing user risk not only at the time of granting access to resources, but throughout the duration of the virtual session. It also means moving beyond risk assessment to comprehensive mitigative actions, which is essential to enabling zero trust security efforts. In this session, you will learn how to secure access with reduced user friction for high security and great user experience, as well as how to continuously secure individual user sessions from modern threats. You will also get laser-focused visibility into the access threat plane of virtual sessions.
