Acceptto IAM Solution for Securing Access to Citrix StoreFront, Workspace and NetScaler

Thanks to COVID-19 and “shelter in place” we now live in exceptional times. These exceptional times also require every organization, regardless of size, to look at their Identity Access Management strategy with a focus on remote logins for every employee working from home. If you are like many companies and are using Citrix to manage the high demand for remote users, then now is the time to protect users by making login frictionless and secure for your employees. 

Work From Home With Citrix And Acceptto

As you face a surge in the requirements for “work from home”, here at Acceptto, we have partnered with Citrix to help make it easier for your employees to remotely login and improve your security in the process.  Acceptto lets organizations deploy multifactor authentication based on behavioral characteristics, extending across the entire Citrix Workspace, StoreFront and NetScaler offerings.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of security used when logging into websites or apps. Individuals are authenticated through more than one required security and validation procedure that only you know or have access to.

How Does It Work?

Acceptto is a Citrix Ready Partner that leverages SAML and the Radius protocol to integrate across Citrix offerings:

  • Citrix StoreFront™ is an enterprise application store that provides an interface for users to access Citrix Workspace™ desktops and applications remotely. Acceptto integrates with Citrix StoreFront via its SAML solution and provides single sign-on (SSO) MFA to ensure customers use the convenience of cloud SSO without its potential security risks.
  • Citrix Workspace™ offers the industry’s most complete and integrated digital workspace that’s streamlined for IT control and easily accessible for users. Acceptto integrates with Citrix WorkSpace via its SAML solution and provides single sign-on (SSO) MFA to ensure customers use the convenience of cloud SSO without its potential security risks.
  • Citrix NetScaler™ is an application delivery and load balancing solution that provides a high-quality user experience for your web and cloud-based applications. Acceptto offers a simple method for adding MFA to Citrix NetScaler via its RADIUS as well as SAML solution

By doing this you can enable a passwordless continuous authentication solution for your Citrix environment.

Watch this short explainer video with co-created with our partner to learn how our solutions help keep your identity and data protected against breaches.

 

Acceptto’s eGuardian engine continuously creates, and monitors user behavior profiles based on the user interaction with the It’sMe authenticator. Every time an activity occurs, actionable intelligence is gathered and used to optimize the user profile. eGuardian is capable of autonomously and continually learning new policies and adapting existing ones. While policies can still be manually defined and contribute to the computation, our Biobehavioral AIML approach automatically finds the optimal policy for each transaction. eGuardian leverages a mixture of AI & ML, expert systems and SMEs to classify, detect, and model behavior, and assign real-time risk scores to continuously validate your identity prior to, during and post-authentication.

See for yourself what Acceptto can do to ensure your Citrix Workspace and NetScaler can authenticate without passwords and still ensure security and privacy.
