A quick post, sharing a very nice Citrix blog with some great Access Gateway Enterprise Edition modifications:
EPA scans are not for everybody
A customer of one of my Citrix Consulting colleagues recently came up with an interesting request.
Like many others they are using Citrix NetScaler’s Access Gateway Enterprise Edition module to grant remote secure remote access to applications and desktops.
Additionally, they use a client management and software distribution solution to deploy the EPA plugin to client computers and therefore wanted to suppress Access Gateway offering the EPA scan plugin for download through the browser. This introduces some additional level of control over which client is entitled to connect through Access Gateway.
An approach restricting certain user groups from logging in by using group memberships is a more common scenario, but in this case the customer intended to restrict the end points and not the users. When end users lack administrative permissions to install custom software, preventing the download is indeed an effective measure.
A job for Citrix Consulting!
