On-demand applications from any Windows & Mac device
Citrix Receiver for Windows and Mac is a lightweight software client that runs on laptops, desktops, Macs and netbooks – turning any device into a powerful business tool to access virtual applications and desktops. With Receiver installed on a device, IT can rapidly deliver virtual applications and desktops people need to do their jobs. Receiver for Windows and Mac, along with its innovative console, Merchandising Server, enables faster roll-out of virtual applications and desktops, simplified client management and update, and a single unified user experience for everything Citrix.
Flexible Client Software Configuration
Built with a browser-like ‘plug-in’ architecture, Receiver for Windows & Mac enables flexible client software configuration ideal for every user in your organization. IT administrators can select from plug-in functions for hosted applications, secure VPN access, communications services and self-service applications with Citrix Dazzle. Receiver also supports 3rd party plug-ins to further simplify client software management.
Safe, Secure, High Definition Experience
Receiver includes built-in HDX technologies to bring a high definition user experience for virtual applications including document-oriented, data-intensive, graphics-rich and multimedia applications – on any network connection. Receiver supports high performance, standards-based encryption security for all data from the datacenter, over the network to users anywhere.
Zero-Touch, Silent Updates
Receiver allows the use of enterprise computing services without the need to understand or worry about the underlying complexities. Installs are a simple point and click, and once Receiver is installed, it’s pretty much ‘lights out’, with zero-touch, silent updates from there forward.
Auto-Updating with Targeted Deliveries
Receiver is completely under centralized administrative control to allow the entire Receiver setup, including plug-ins, to be kept up-to-date, with scheduled automatic download to users based upon user preferences for update checks, or IT-controlled mandatory updating. Receiver enables IT to deliver client software updates to users using a rules-based system based on group credentials, IP addresses, machine names, login IDs, or operating systems. This provides the flexibility to ensure plug-ins are delivered to only appropriate, authorized users.
