Citrix XenMobile is an enterprise mobility management (EMM) software suite that provides administrators with mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM) and online file-sharing capabilities.

The centerpiece of Citrix XenMobile is Worx, a line of managed mobile applications. Citrix offers Worx apps for secure email access, Web browsing and file sharing; more significantly, third-party developers can make Worx-enabled versions of their apps by adding one line of code to the software. IT administrators can make Worx apps -- as well as approved Windows and SaaS apps -- available to users through XenMobile's enterprise app store.

The MDM features in XenMobile come from Zenprise, a vendor Citrix acquired in 2012. The MAM features supplant those in CloudGateway, a standalone MAM product Citrix discontinued upon the May 2013 launch of XenMobile. The file-sharing component comes from Citrix's ShareFile product.

Citrix XenMobile's mobile management software is available in three editions: MDM-only, MAM-only and a version that offers all features.
