Citrix GoToMyPC Named Leader in Remote Access Market for Fifth Consecutive Year

08:00 EDT Thursday, April 25, 2013

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Business Wire) -- Citrix today announced that Citrix GoToMyPC has again been ranked as the market leader among remote access solutions – now for the fifth year in a row – by leading analyst firm IDC. The firm's report “Worldwide Remote Access Services and Applications 2013–2017 Forecast and 2012 Vendor Shares” analyzed the remote access market, evaluating compound annual growth rates, mobile functionality, retention and market expansion.

GoToMyPC achieved top ranking as a result of superior customer retention and innovative, mobile functionality. Other key differentiating features identified for GoToMyPC include group management and report generation.

GoToMyPC enables remote access to a user's Mac or PC desktop, functionality that is often needed as organizations embrace mobile workstyles. Among several Citrix products with increased mobile functionality in the last year, GoToMyPC enables customers to access their data from anywhere on any web browser, iOS or Android device. Users depend on the product to get what they need – emails, files, programs – when they need it.

The “Worldwide Remote Access Services and Applications 2013–2017 Forecast and 2012 Vendor Shares” is available to subscribing customers on the IDC website. Citrix has also published a blog on the importance of listening to customers in light of IDC's accolades.

Additional Quotes:

“The remote access space will be an interesting one to watch as it continues to mature. Vendors are aware of their customer's needs and have become more agile in addressing holes within their products. While freemium products continue to exhibit growth, holistic packages such as GoToMyPC ultimately remain more attractive to the end user; this has led Citrix to again be the remote access market leader.” Ben Hoffman, Research Analyst, IDC

“With so many employees working remotely in today's mobile world, the demand for smart and seamless access solutions has grown exponentially. We've listened to our customers and aligned GoToMyPC's progress to provide unparalleled access to information when and where it is needed. The recognition from IDC for our market leadership is a great honor and testament to a product that keeps pace with rapidly changing mobile workstyles.” Elizabeth Cholawsky, GM and VP of IT Support and Access, Online Services Division, Citrix
