Enforce granular security controls for SaaS and Internet

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

Single sign-on (SSO) by itself is not enough to prevent unauthorized usage of confidential information stored in SaaS applications. For a complete secure access strategy, following are the challenges, IT should be thinking:

  • How do I enforce governance and security policies to prevent unauthorized use of confidential data in sanctioned SaaS applications?
  • How do I protect my users and my application infrastructure from malicious content on the Internet?
  • How do I control usage of unsanctioned SaaS applications by monitoring and controlling user behavior?
  • How do I monitor user actions and enforce automatic controls based on their behavior?

As a part of Citrix Workspace, Citrix Access Control enables a seamless single sign-on (SSO) experience to all SaaS, web and virtual apps and desktops using any standard browser to access SaaS, web, or virtual apps and desktops. This allows end users get instant access to all apps, data, and files across any device and location.

With Citrix Workspace, admins can control what actions users can take after they successfully log in to their SaaS applications, such as Office 365, SalesForce, and Workday. Admins can restrict the ability to perform functions like printing, copy, paste, enabling watermarks, and more for an end user or user group. These security policies prevent users from unauthorized usage of confidential data.

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, for users who access Office 365 or Gmail, you can stop users who accidently access phishing links in their email. This will protect both the user’s information as well as your infrastructure from any malicious content.

With Citrix Workspace, admins can define policies to allow user access to certain websites for example social media platforms or other unsanctioned SaaS applications, using a Secure Browser session. These websites may not be blacklisted websites, but admins may choose to take caution or monitor user activity within these SaaS applications.  With Citrix Secure Browser, part of Citrix Workspace, users access an unknown web link within a secure browser that is streamed directly from Citrix Cloud, to isolate it from the corporate network or resources. This prevents any malicious HTML code to even come inside of your network, thereby restricting the attack surface.

Citrix Workspace with Citrix Analytics provides complete visibility and a robust set of user behavior analytics on every user accessing an application. Citrix Analytics calculates risk scores based on user behavior and allows admins to view and control user access based on this behavior.
