Citrix Presentation Server is the market-leading solution for centralizing the deployment and management of enterprise applications and providing Internet users with secure, on-demand access to business applications from any location, device, or connection. Because each user accessing a Citrix server is not identified by an individual IP address, it has been difficult in the past for organizations to enforce Internet acceptable use policies, monitor Web usage, and create detailed usage reports on an individual basis.
