Citrix Acquires Framehawk

Framehawk solution to enhance Citrix HDX technology, improving user experience on challenging Wi-Fi and cellular networks

Citrix announced on Wednesday that it has acquired Framehawk. The Framehawk solution, which optimizes the delivery of virtual desktops and applications to mobile devices, will be combined with HDX technology in the Citrix XenApp® and XenDesktop® products to deliver an unparalleled user experience under adverse network conditions. Framehawk's leadership and engineering teams will be integrated into the Enterprise and Service Provider division of Citrix.

"As a company, we are focused on delivering the best user experience on any device, over any network," said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, SVP and General Manager, Enterprise and Service Provider division at Citrix. "The addition of Framehawk's technology to the HDX portfolio enables Citrix to continue to lead the industry in delivering a powerful virtual desktop and application experience."

Delivering a Powerful Experience Over Unreliable Networks
With the increase of mobile users adopting tablets and smartphones, it is critical to ensure a rich virtual application and desktop user experience on Wi-Fi and cellular networks where quality may be intermittent or poor due to congestion, high packet loss and high latency. These mobile workers need anywhere, anytime access to their business resources with a user experience that is equal to what they have in the office. The market-leading Citrix HDX technologies in XenApp and XenDesktop combine to deliver a high definition experience to users of any application, on any device and over any network. The integration of the Framehawk solution with HDX technology will further extend the Citrix leadership position in application and desktop virtualization user experience. Where other solutions cause end-user frustration and low adoption, HDX technologies continue to improve the experience for mobile workers, even when they are on less than ideal networks. No other app and desktop virtualization solution has the ability to address the wide range of challenging network scenarios that are common in today's mobile workplace.
