Attivo Networks ThreatDefend Platform is Verified as Citrix Ready

Attivo Networks, an award-winning leader in cyber deception and attacker lateral movement threat detection, announced that Citrix Systems, Inc. has verified the Attivo ThreatDefend Platform as Citrix Ready. The Citrix Ready Program offers robust testing, verification, and joint marketing for Citrix Workspace and App Delivery and Security--with over 40,000 validations listed in the Citrix Ready Marketplace.

The Attivo ThreatDefend platform, comprised of the Endpoint Detection Net (EDN) suite, completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Service (XenApp & XenDesktop service), Citrix Virtual Desktops (XenDesktop), Citrix ADC (NetScaler ADC), Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp), and Citrix Gateway (NetScaler Gateway), providing confidence in joint solution compatibility.

Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktop solutions can deploy on-premises or in Citrix Cloud. Citrix workloads can be deployed across public cloud providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

Organizations that deploy Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops can use the Attivo ThreatDefend EDN suite across Citrix VDI endpoints to protect against attackers successfully querying Active Directory Objects, domain controllers, and AD resources like privileged users, computer groups, and service accounts. EDN also prevents attackers from fingerprinting endpoints and conducting network reconnaissance, and it alerts of credential theft attacks while misdirecting the attack into the decoy environment for forensic collection. Additionally, the Attivo EDN ThreatPath solution identifies exposed credentials and helps reduce the attack surface, particularly in persistent VDI images where users can cache high privilege accounts on endpoints.

"As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we can offer customers intelligent solutions that combine our ThreatDefend EDN Platform with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops solutions," said Venu Vissamsetty, Attivo Networks vice president of security research. "The offering clearly demonstrates our plans to work closely with trusted partners, through the Citrix Ready partner ecosystem, to provide the highest quality experience for our customers."
