Citrix Web Interface and Strong Authentication Interview with Citrix’s Chris Mayers


I interviewed Chris Mayers for this topic.  Chris has been with Citrix since 1998, and in his role as principal security architect at Citrix, Chris has both internal and external responsibilities for promoting security, developing security strategies and advocating the secure enterprise.  Based in Cambourne, Cambridge, Chris’s job takes him all over Europe and to the USA, where he can be found advising CIOs and CSOs, presenting White Papers at industry conferences and working to develop Citrix technology to ensure it continues to protect the ‘perimeterless’ enterprise.

Kate asked the following questions to Chris Mayers:

  • Chris, first can you explain what we mean by "Strong Authentication"?
  • That makes sense.  Why wouldn’t everyone use strong authentication for remote access?
  • What kind of cost would a customer be looking at for implementing strong authentication?
  • What about user acceptance, why is that an issue for customers?
  • Counting on users is always risky How do you recommend IT deal with this?
  • What about biometrics – that way the user doesn’t have to remember a device?
  • Does Citrix provide strong authentication solutions?
