What about MDX ? I think this is smart move from Citrix who push toward managing Apps and native Apps deployed to the mobile devices instead of trying to fully manage the device itself. Now this technology is not mature yet and needs some time and improvement and each version is a giant step forward. I’m really looking forward what’s coming and soon be announced by Citrix.


  • Full support for both personal and corporate usage (BYOD)
    • Corporate apps and data secure even on employee-owned devices
    • New consumer-driven devices supported immediately
  • No risk of corporate data loss or compliance exceptions when:
    • Device is lost or stolen or employee leaves organization
    • Collaboration / file sharing apps used on the device
  • Governance is built-in
    • Policies can be updated on hundreds of apps with no requirement to change source code
  • No requirement for developers to change the way they develop apps or learn mobile security standards

    I’m quite interested in the last part of your article. Did you actually repack a pre-compiled ipa from the Apple AppStore? I was assuming Citrix only allows to pack unsigned ipa files (which are developed internally) since you can bypass Apple’s restrictions then if you distribute an app which you downloaded from AppStore. Or am I thinking a wrong way here?
    And I thought you have to have an Enterprise Developer Account for $299, not just a normal one for $99, to use Citrix App Preparation Tool. Does it work with the normal one too?
    Thank you!

  • Hi Dominik,
