83: The Citrix Session: Enhanced ICA file security on Citrix Workspace app for Windows

Aug 3, 2021

With the increased popularity of mobility, hybrid work, and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives, the IT risk profile has changed. At Citrix, we constantly strive to make our products even more secure. Whether it’s providing security controls for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops administrators with offerings like app protection, or enhancing the architecture of our products, security has always been our guiding principle.

Today, we are announcing a preview of an important architecture change to the way Citrix Workspace app for Windows handles ICA files during the launch of a virtual app or desktop. To reduce the attack surface, ICA files from Citrix Workspace app for Windows will now be stored in memory.
