Citrix Launches ShareConnect for iOS and Android

More companies are trying to find ways to better take advantage of technologies such as the cloud and virtual desktops. Being one of the leading technology companies overall, Citrix announced an application it feels is going to make a big statement in the virtual desktop world, called the ShareConnect.

This particular solution is an application available for use on either the iPad or Android tablets geared toward letting people work just as effectively on the go as they would from their office. Ctirix says this kind of program is needed, especially with new data showing the average worker is using as many as three devices per day. ShareConnect works by allowing a user to work on one device (securely) and then shifting to another device, picking up right where they left off.

“Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever and they face two major challenges; not all data is stored in the cloud and many desktop apps are not fully functional through mobile apps,” Jesse Lipson, vice president, Citrix said in a statement announcing the new applications. “With ShareConnect, users can access and edit files, use industry-specific desktop apps critical to getting their work done and even use their business networks – all through a simple interface, optimized pixel by pixel for tablets.”

ShareConnect will allow users to access and edit files just as if they were doing so from their desktop computer. Even better is the company says the design of the virtual desktop is done in such a way that it is very easy to use when talking about a mobile platform. The application also comes with 1 GB of free cloud storage. This is provided through the Citrix ShareFile, which is a secure sharing toll that is used by more than 15 millon people around the world.
