Xenmobile is a mobile device management system keeping our email accessable to personal devices without making the device completely locked down and completely wiped in case of breach or end of employment. it allows for the best of both worlds.
  • security: it allows remote wipe of a device
  • compartmentalization: when xenmobile is on the device, it can setup its own client, or have a set portion of the local mail client.
  • mobile support: with a web-based admin portal, no software needs to be setup on a PC to admin remotely [good for on-call techs]
  • issues with non apple, non samsung devices: if it is not setup with an apple or samsung phone, then the Certificate onboarding is a struggle/unable to be done.
  • user-pin setup: for a user to be onboarded, requiring a PIN; there is a self service way but it is clunky and users prefer to call in instead of trying to follow the 15 step process via PDF
  • if the certificate is ever lost, due to an upgrade via IOS or android, then the entire process [uninstall, reinstall] has to be done, which means downtime for the end user, and higher call volume when a service provider pushes an iOS update.
I think this is a solid product for a limited BYOD scenario where you want to keep personal and professional business separate. If you're looking for full BYOD with the addition of any Android devices [pixel, lightning, etc.,] you will have issues with profile addition.

  • It gives us the ability to manage email synchronization in a HIPAA compliant way while providing the flexibility necessary for our organization.
  • Through Secure Web, XenMobile provides secure access to internal websites and eliminates the need for cumbersome VPN authentication.
  • Using Secure Mail, Notes, & Tasks, we can completely sandbox critical business information.

This product is well suited for any healthcare organization, especially one privately owned by the providers. Many of our providers were displeased with our efforts to use a product that forced sandboxing of Exchange information. Therefore, we needed something that was flexible enough that sandboxing could be used where desired but still allowed native OS integration where necessary.

"Citrix XenMobile Review - Great ROI"

We use XenMobile across our entire organization. This allows us to stop buying separate company managed cell phones for remote access, allows us secure management of email, access to internal resources, as well as enabling secure file share via share file. Overall, it's been a very worthwhile investment in terms of cost/value.
  • Secure email container - easily manage on/off boarding of remote employee access
  • Secure access to internal resources
  • Secure file share
  • Free / Busy functionality would be great
  • Interface changes more than I'd like
  • Better calendaring interface - more like Outlook would be nice.
Specifically avoid buying company managed cell phones - this could pay for itself in a year or two. Enable BYOD - very effective for iPad users and others using unmanaged endpoints. Securely managing company IP vis a vie remote users - much easier to on and offboard access. Also a great way to securely share files.

As the world of information technology and information security is today, I cannot think of any scenario in which XenMobile wouldn't be a viable and much needed resource. In my opinion, companies who are not leveraging XenMobile are putting themselves, their data and their customers data at risk.
