Citrix Receiver has emerged as a powerful universal client providing simple, intuitive, high-definition access to virtual desktops and applications anywhere, on any device. Receiver will evolve into an even more critical piece of client-side software that goes beyond access on both desktop and mobile platforms. Upcoming functions include serving as a broker for other apps on the device, a secure conduit to the enterprise and a platform providing access to value-added services.
