Citrix: The Best Way to Tackle Shadow IT – Secure Apps That Make It Easy to Get Your Work Done

From the latest app on our smartphones to the newest gadgets in our homes, many of us love to embrace innovation. After all, these technology advances improve our lives, make us more productive and help us stay connected in ways our parents never could have imagined.

That’s why so many of us use our personal smartphones for work, and jump at the chance to use the latest app or service that makes our jobs easier. And today, if IT doesn’t move as fast as you want, it’s not that hard to bypass the normal process and download that app or sign up for that cloud-based service, and leave IT out of the process.
