Citrix Receiver runs virtualized Windows apps, desktops

updated 04:40 pm EST, Thu March 11, 2010

Operates over network connection

Citrix has launched Receiver for Mac, allowing Mac users to access Windows software, documents and desktops in a mixed-OS environment. Apps are opened as if they were local to a user's Mac. Working alongside XenApp, which delivers programs to the desktop, and Dazzle, the Citrix storefront for subscribing to apps, Receiver allows Mac users to launch and run virtualized Windows apps from the Dock.

Through Receiver IT administrators can use plugin functions for hosted applications, secure VPN access and communications services -- also self-service applications with Dazzle. Client software updates can be pushed to users via a rules-based system. The new software works with Mac OS X 10.5 and is Snow Leopard-compatible. Company contact is required for pricing.
