Carbon Black Cloud: Is Unidesk/Citrix App Layering Supported?
Carbon Black Cloud sensor: All supported versions
Can the Cb Defense Sensor be installed on Unidesk/Citrix Application Layering (App Layering) technology?
The recommendation for virtualization technologies is to install the Sensor on the Operating System Layer (OS Layer) to function properly
While Unidesk and Citrix have called out being able to install many common AV products on an Application Layer (App Layer), this has not been tested specifically in-house
Deployment of the Cb Defense Sensor on Unidesk or Citrix on an App Layer is not currently supported
While it may be technically possible to install a Carbon Black Cloud sensor on an App Layer it is not a supported or recommended configuration do to the issues often caused in the Citrix application
Issues that arise from installing a Carbon Black Cloud sensor on an App Layer can and often do require user layers to be reset as well as loss of specific user settings requiring a significant amount of work in the Citrix application
"Citrix DaaS cloud service" is nothing but "Cloud" , in layman's term, outsourcing IT infrastructure to someone else or renting IT infrastructure. It is simply a rebranding of "Citrix App and Desktop" and other Citrix technologies / adapting to new renting paradigm of IT infrastructure.
