Enforce security controls for SaaS and Internet

Consolidate single sign-on with web filtering and security controls for data stored in SaaS

Providing single sign-on (SSO) to a digital workspace or applications improves the end-user experience and ensures consistent access policies across all applications. With a secure access strategy, it’s important to look for ways to improve governance and control over users’ interactions with the data stored within your applications. When building your strategy, you need to think about how to:

  • Enforce governance and security policies to prevent unauthorized use of confidential data in sanctioned SaaS applications.
  • Protect users and the application infrastructure from malicious Internet content.
  • Control use of unsanctioned SaaS applications by monitoring and controlling user behavior.
  • Monitor user actions and enforcing automatic controls based on their behavior.
  • Go beyond just usernames and password to include time-based, one time passwords for authentication

As a component of Citrix Workspace, Citrix Access Control enables a seamless single sign-on (SSO) to all SaaS, web and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops using any standard browser. This allows end users get instant access to all apps, data, and files from any device, any network and any location.

With Citrix Workspace, you can control what actions users can take after they log in to their SaaS applications, such as Office 365, SalesForce, or Workday. Admins can restrict any end-user group from performing functions like printing, copying or pasting. These security policies prevent users from unauthorized dissemination of confidential data.

Citrix Workspace also enables you to prevent unauthorized access with multi-factor authentication, complete with multi-factor authentication for employees, partners, and customers accessing applications. When delivering Citrix Workspace through the cloud services platform, admins may also implement time-based one-time passwords to further enhance their security posture. This gives admins a simple way to configure strong authentication without impacting the end user experience

Citrix Workspace allows admins to define policies for what a user can or cannot access on the Internet. With advanced web filtering policies, you can keep users from accessing malicious or non-compliant content on the Internet. For example, you can stop users in Office 365 or Gmail from accidentally accessing phishing links in their email. This protects both the user’s information as well as your entire infrastructure from any malicious content.

With Citrix Workspace, admins can define policies for user access to certain websites—such as social media platforms or other unsanctioned SaaS applications—using, using a secure browser session, even if these websites are not blacklisted. With Citrix Secure Browser, a component of Citrix Workspace, users access unknown web links within a secure browser that is streamed directly from Citrix Cloud. This isolates it from the corporate network, preventing any malicious HTML code to from infiltrating your network, thereby decreasing the attack surface.
