New Citrix Analytics Service will provide visibility into company-wide user and entity behavior, system security, performance and operations, and simplify IT infrastructure. Citrix Analytics is in limited preview release now, with the production release available to all targeting the second quarter of this year.
Using machine learning and artificial intelligence to detect anomalous behavior and potential threats, Citrix is now able to deliver actionable intelligence from the information gathered via our cloud services and on premises products to help customers proactively identify and manage internal and external threats. Citrix Analytics uniquely enables customers to adopt a risk-based security model, allowing them to dynamically balance the needs of users to have rapid access to data with IT’s need to secure and govern the environment.
This new service securely aggregates and correlates user interaction with applications, devices, networks and data across our suite of products and cloud services to help detect and prevent malicious activity and data exfiltration. With an end-to-end view of the location of and access to data, Citrix Analytics also allows organizations to monitor and manage data movement across endpoints, data center, mobile, hybrid and multi-clouds. This visibility into data logging and access requests helps our customers understand data flows to meet their security and oversight obligations under several security standards and regulations, including HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, and GDPR.
In a closed-loop system, the service uses data about application and document access, device usage and network traffic to build unique and comprehensive visibility into user and entity or “thing” behavior, enabling context-based security controls. The behavioral insights this service delivers gives organizations a proactive way to monitor, detect and flag behaviors that fall outside the norm, including mitigation of phishing and ransomware attacks.
