Citrix Receiver won Best Mobile App for Enterprise at the Global Mobile Awards, held at Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona. This is a significant accolade from one of the most influential mobile industry bodies, the GSMA, and demonstrates the impact Citrix Receiver is making on an increasingly mobile workforce.

“The 2012 Global Mobile Awards continue to showcase the greatest, most creative and innovative products and services driving the mobile ecosystem today and into the future.

Workers today are using multiple computing devices to access their desktops, applications and data. They are demanding a consistent computing experience across all of their devices. At the same time, organizations everywhere are struggling to cope with the proliferation of these devices while being able to give users the mobile, high-definition experience they demand.

The powerful combination of Citrix Receiver, an easy-to-install software client, and Citrix XenDesktop® and Citrix XenApp™ gives users access to enterprise desktops, applications and data from billions of devices including smartphones, tablets and PCs. When connected to Citrix CloudGateway™, the industry’s first unified storefront solution, Citrix Receiver provides secure access to an intuitive app store-like interface for any Windows, Web or SaaS app from any mobile device.
