Overall Satisfaction with Citrix Virtual Apps

Citrix Virtual Apps helped us limit our costs significantly as we could now access remote devices and applications including managing the security of the devices remotely. It offered secure access to us. We did not have to build a data center of our own. Everything was on the cloud. It was very convenient and required minimum maintenance on our part. Rather than having a big network team and having to purchase various servers ourselves, We relied on Citrix Virtual Apps that provide us remote desktop access to various applications and servers. Thus it cut down on our infrastructure costs significantly while delivering efficient service as downtime was minimal.
  • Remote Desktop Connectivity which is secure.
  • We were able to manage everything centrally without having to update each system individually.
  • Quick security updates and patches are provided to Central Point regularly. Hence makes it very secure against any new threats.
  • It is very cost-effective as compared to building your own network and in-house network team to maintain the same.
  • It allows you access to your applications and servers on the move. Allows Mobility
  • Complex architecture and licensing structure
  • expensive setup and ongoing costs in comparison to its peers.
  • Becomes slow sometimes and you face network issues because of various interlinked dependencies.
  • Citrix Virtual Apps reduce your cost significantly. Operating on the cloud helps you cut costs on not only network infrastructure but also on the human resources required to maintain it.
  • I can see no negative impact however in case the Citrix Virtual Apps are facing any network issues or downtime then it becomes a bit of an issue as you are dependent on the same for your network connectivity and applications access. However, you can raise a ticket and their support is great and helps you fix the issues ASAP.
AnyDesk is a similar software I have used however AnyDesk is more of a remote Desktop software to gain access to other computers in any network. They use a token system to authenticate. AnyDesk is very different in terms of what it offers. It does not offer Application access like Email Clients, Servers, etc. like Citrix. It is simple software for a specific purpose.

I feel if you are starting to use a Remote Desktop connection, Citrix Virtual Apps is a good option. It will help you understand the basics and give you a perspective and great experience to handle these applications. However, when you understand and get experience on the same, you sometimes feel the need to try other peer applications for better performance and to avoid any network issues if any. As Citrix Virtual Apps tend to be a bit slow and are liable to some performance issues over a period of time.
