At Citrix Synergy, the Citrix annual user conference which took place last week at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Citrix made several announcements over the course of the three day event. But, the company aimed to make it quite clear that Citrix products should be an ideal option for all users, not just the power users or those in IT. By the end of day one, it was also clear that Citrix was placing a major focus around the Citrix Workspace product. If you haven’t seen it before, Workspace essentially provides an organized view of your available applications, documents, messaging, tasks and more; and provides users with secure access to their Web, SaaS, Windows, Linux and mobile apps.
While at Citrix Synergy 2019 in Atlanta, GA, VMblog spoke with Sridhar Mullapudi, SVP of products, managing Workspace services and the Apps team at Citrix.
Watch as Sridhar Mullapudi provides more detail into the Workspace platform. One of the interesting things announced was building intelligence into Workspace, and building a platform of work. The product comes with a host of micro-apps, but Citrix has built in support for partners and application providers to build their vertical specific needs and apps themselves. And what is going to be happening over the next 6 months. Mullapudi also goes into more detail as to what Citrix is doing within the security space such as the new keylogger blocking technology, as well as what they are doing within networking and multi-cloud.

In this video interview, VMblog speaks with Tim Minahan, Executive Vice President, Business Strategy and Chief Marketing Officer at Citrix, while at Citrix Synergy 2019 in Atlanta, GA.
Minahan covers a number of items discussed throughout the course of Citrix Synergy, specifically: the shifting focus from IT management to the employee experience, presenting employees with a digital workspace that gives them everything they need to be productive in one unified experience; securing the individual user rather than just the environment with new key logging security and screen capture protection; and finally, better supporting the cloud journey by supporting customer's hybrid and multi-cloud strategies.
