Leidos Citrix is a "no touch required" service that we can deliver to anyone using any computer or iPad anywhere. We deliver a secure Windows work environment on the House network that has IQ and MS Office (Outlook), access to all House Cloud File Folders (Common Drive and Personal Folder), and can even print to in-office printers. Each Congressional Office has their own private environment. There is nothing to carry or pick up or anything that needs to be added to office inventory that has to be accounted for later. There is zero intermingling between the external device being used to initiate the citric session and the private House network work environment for office/individual users (nothing from inside the House network can touch the external device and vice versa).
Citrix is bandwidth friendly because it uses different technology (it sips bandwidth compared to a traditional VPN connection). Comcast, FIOS, Cox (ISPs)...they all built their offerings around the premise that you and your kids would be at work all day and only need to spike your usage after school and after work. Now you are home, the kids are home, and the same is true for all your neighbors using the same internet provider. Kids with distance learning, Netflix..etc. and one or more working adults all needing bandwidth in your home....this where better technology like Citrix can make a big difference. In addition to ISP problems the House VPN has been saturated as the mass movement to telework has began. Leidos Citrix is not overbooked and is scaled up for every individual customer (we grow the system as users get added so there is always enough capacity). Leidos Citrix is always on and always ready. It wont have to be replaced in 4 years like a computer and is a much more secure and durable continuity of operations method than giving every worker a second computer that can get lost, be compromised, and in a few years will need to be replaced.
