Announcer: The following is an ESG On Location Video.
Dan: Hi, I'm Dan Conde, Analyst here at ESG Group and I'm here at Citrix for the Industry Analyst Event, and one of the things we learned today was the importance of realizing that the end-user context makes a big difference to the entire way you look at infrastructure.
So, typically, people look at devices, IP addresses and such, but the reality is that Citrix has deep insights into end-user behavior based on devices. mobile management, and so on. And the issue is that rather than looking at point-products, the comprehensive way of looking at the new product line, without regards to business units and such, I think is a big change now.
So, there was discussions of a Citrix Cloud, an SD line and so on, which are individual products, but the reality of it is that most of these products are combined into a singular vision which is something new that we've learned this year and I look forward to seeing those things develop in the future as well.
There has been discussions of a secure digital perimeter, which is a concept that's still in nascent stages, but is a good way to realize that context and so on is a critical way to define security even though people don't associate Citrix as a security vendor, per se, they have all the pieces that enable those things to happen.
So those are some of the thoughts from the Industry Analyst Event, and I'm Dan Conde from ESG. Thank you.
