Citrix Receiver

General Information
Description:

The Citrix Receiver is a client and web browser plug-in that gives you secure web browser access to select UC Berkeley applications from anywhere. The Citrix Receiver is required to access vApps.

What is Citrix?
Citrix gives you a secure one stop shop for certain UC Berkeley applications not installed on your computer (e.g. BAIRS, CalPlanning). This eliminates compatibility and security issues, such as the need to run a specific web browser version for each application.

The Citrix Receiver replaces the traditional Remote Desktop Connection. Citrix provides better scalability and a more consistent user experience between Mac, Windows and other devices.

For more information about the service, visit the IST Service Catalog.
