Desktop virtualisation leader Citrix on Wednesday launched the new “Citrix Workspace” to enable enterprises deliver a superior work experience by unifying apps and content across all endpoints in one place while meeting the security needs.

According to the company, to ensure employee engagement and productivity, companies must deliver a unified workspace experience that adapts to how and where work needs to get done.

“We, at Citrix, are committed to enabling people-centric computing within organisations. Our solutions deliver the experience, security and choice that people and organisations need to innovate, engage customers and be productive — anytime and anywhere,” CEO Citrix David Henshall said at the Citrix Synergy conference which is being held in Anaheim city in the US state of California.

With this offering, Citrix will expand its portfolio of delivering virtual apps, desktops and mobile apps to provide secure access to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps and content via Citrix Workspace app, creating the first unified digital workspace for business.

The company would also provide day-one support for Windows Server 2019 to deliver virtualised apps with XenApp.

Iran-based Hackers Steal Data From Citrix

"Citrix deeply regrets the impact this incident may have on affected customers,"

Iran-based hackers have stolen terabytes of data from desktop virtualisation leader Citrix, with the company admitting that the cyber criminals may have accessed and downloaded business documents.
“The specific documents that may have been accessed, however, are currently unknown. At this time, there is no indication that the security of any Citrix product or service was compromised,” Citrix Chief Information Security Officer Stan Black said in a blog post.
According to a report in The Registrar on Sunday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) last week warned Citrix about the data hack.
According to cyber security firm Resecurity, at least six terabytes of sensitive internal files were stolen by the Iranian-backed IRIDIUM hacker gang.

The researchers said they had alerted Citrix as early as December 28 last year about the ongoing attack.
“Citrix has taken action to contain the incident. We commenced a forensic investigation; engaged a leading cyber security firm to assist; took actions to secure our internal network; and continue to cooperate with the FBI,” Black wrote.
The hackers probably used a tactic known as “password spraying”, which exploits weak passwords. Once they gain a foothold with limited access, they worked to circumvent additional layers of security.
“Citrix deeply regrets the impact this incident may have on affected customers,” he said. (IANS)
