Citrix has issued its newest whitepaper which talks about the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into effect on May 25th this year.
The whitepaper mainly focuses on some of the Citrix solutions that align closely with security and compliance that will be required by the GDPR.
Some Citrix solutions that are covered in the whitepaper and, in some extent, cover the security areas required by the GDPR include the XenApp and XenDesktop, which offer secure delivery of virtual and desktop applications; NetScaler, which offers secure remote access and web application protection; XenMobile, which is enterprise mobility management service; and ShareFile, enterprise file sync and share service.
The whitepaper also comes with an infographic which talks about some GDPR positive sides, shows details about the current state of GDPR readiness, as well as talks about steps that need to be taken in order to achieve GDPR compliance.
The whitepaper, which can be found over at Citrix’s website, concludes that while the GDPR represents a significant challenge for organizations, it technical side lines up with established best practices for data privacy and protection as well as on some standard security principles.
This also means that organizations should not be that intimidated by the requirements as some services, including ones from Citrix, can enable a simple approach to achieving compliance without impeding productivity.
