Pareteum and Citrix Agree Mobile Workforce Global Cloud Strategy Deployment
NEW YORK, NY – Mar. 20, 2019 – Pareteum Corporation (Nasdaq: TEUM), a rapidly growing global cloud software communications platform company with a mission to connect every person and every(thing)TM, today announced a new sales transaction with Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS). The agreement will see Citrix migrate employees to a cloud-based deployment of Pareteum’s iPass SmartConnectTM solution, which has been fully integrated with Citrix’s existing single sign-on solution to provide users with an enhanced security experience. A phased rollout is currently underway.
Using the Pareteum solution on corporate-issued and BYOD devices, Citrix’s mobile employees will be able to seamlessly and securely connect to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots globally, automatically transitioning back to cellular when Wi-Fi is not available. By integrating the Pareteum offering with its existing single sign-on solution (Okta), Citrix will be able to manage access controls such that employees will only need to securely sign in once to get connected to Wi-Fi across the globe.
Shawn Genoway, Sr. Director, IT, Citrix, commented, “Our move to a cloud-based deployment of Pareteum’s iPass SmartConnect aligns perfectly with our overall cloud strategy. With a growing mobile workforce, we needed a way to keep our remote workers cost-effectively connected, while ensuring our data is secure at all times. We now have a solution that allows mobile workers to stay securely connected and productive, wherever they are trying to get online.”
“This is a significant sales transaction and we are delighted to count Citrix, which itself serves 98 per cent of the Fortune 500, as a customer of Pareteum’s global cloud software communications platform,” commented Christine Braelow, Global Vice President of Sales for Enterprise and Brand at Pareteum. “Being able to provide secure, seamless, and flexible mobile connectivity to employees is paramount for all global companies today, so we are thrilled to have been chosen by Citrix to help make this a reality. The breadth of the Pareteum cloud offering positions us as a true strategic partner to our enterprise customers, driving enhancement and efficiency in every aspect of communications services. We look forward to being a great strategic partner to Citrix.”
