Cybersecurity expert Intercede today announced that it is teaming up with Citrix, a leader in digital workspaces, to offer Intercede’s MyID technology, which is now Citrix Ready®, to XenMobile customers. The MyID platform and XenMobile provide the derived credentials required to enable secure enrollment of devices into the corporate XenMobile UEM environment. This allows customers the ability to utilize the strongest level of security on mobile devices, which was traditionally only possible on a desktop PC with the use of a physical smart card.
Maintaining robust security measures for an increasingly mobile workforce is a growing concern for enterprises. Intercede’s MyID platform allows EMM/UEM vendors to bolster the security of enterprise applications and offer customers strong authentication solutions to meet the highest security standards.
Intercede and Citrix help customers meet government security standards, including FIPS 201-2 and SP800-157, a vital requirement for US Federal customers and those operating in associated industries.
Intercede CEO Richard Parris said: “Citrix is the latest high-profile EMM vendor to select Intercede to deliver secure credentials to meet the needs of its wide-ranging customer base. The work we are doing together demonstrates Intercede’s growing reputation as a market-leading mobile security specialist capable of large-scale deployments of its trusted solutions.
“Cyberattacks targeting enterprises are becoming increasingly frequent and the security of corporate data has become a top priority for businesses. Coupled with the move towards mobile workforces, it is vital that enterprises adopt EMM solutions with the highest levels of security to avoid falling victim to hackers.”
Sridhar Mullapudi, VP Product Management at Citrix, said: “Intercede’s market leading credential management platform has enabled us to provide customers with more advanced levels of mobile security.”
