Citrix helps Southern Housing Group to simplify work
David King, Head of IT Infrastructure Operations, Southern Housing, says, “Most people's focus really isn't on technology. It’s on caring for residents or looking after their homes. Our job in IT is to make sure they can get on with their day jobs and support them in their roles.”
Moving to the Cloud
To do this, Southern Housing knew it would need to upgrade its on-premises IT environment and shift to the cloud.
King said, “Our strategy is all about user experience - making sure information is accessible in a user-friendly way both for customers and for colleagues. We want to support different ways of working and move from pen and paper towards email and digital platforms.”
To enable this strategy, the association turned to Citrix, and with the help of Citrix Specialist Partner HTG, implemented Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. Delivered as part of Citrix Workspace, the cloud-based service enables organizations to provide personalized access to the systems, information and tools employees need in one, unified experience and dynamically apply security policies based on a user’s behavior and environment so they can work when, where and how they want with the confidence that their applications, information and devices are safe.
Using the solution, Southern Housing is delivering a consistent desktop experience for its 1,000 office and field-based staff, whether they are working from home or on location – a move that is proving key as the association, like the rest of the world, transitions to hybrid work.
It also means employees can get on board more quickly.
Enabling Secure Remote Work
While giving employees the freedom to work where and how they want, Southern Housing must also ensure their devices and information remain safe. Leveraging Citrix’s zero-trust approach to security, King and his team can do this by creating contextual access policies and configuring access based on factors such as role, location, network, device type, and data sensitivity to protect corporate assets without compromising the user experience.
Southern Housing joins more than 400,000 organizations around the world who are using Citrix digital workspace solutions to modernize IT, empower secure distributed work and boost worker productivity.
