    Mobility and Workshifting with Citrix!
    Michael Berman, Lead Virtualization Sales XENgineer at Citrix and Jeremy MacBean, Director of Biz Dev at IT Weapons Recorded: Dec 20 2012 61 mins
    Gone are the days of physical offices, desktop computers, and traditional work hours. A workshifting strategy must address two issues to succeed:

    Employees must have access to desktops, apps, files and collaboration just like they would in the office and IT Security must control and secure business information.

    Workshifting allows companies to:

    1) Give employees the flexibility of a mobile workplace to choose the ideal time, place and device for their work
    2) Provide employees uninterrupted access to desktops and apps during business disruptions of any kind
    3) Reduce travel, labor, and real estate costs through flew-work, telework, and alternative workplace strategies.
    4) Attract and retain the best experienced people wherever you fine them!

    In this webcast we will highlight:
    • How today’s market misunderstands the role of SSL, anti-virus and firewalls technologies
    • How to apply "defense in depth" when properly securing your infrastructure
