@3frz agreed - it's like a flu.
Yet, it can overwhelm the system (like in Italy now) and then it becomes dangerous.
It's all about how quickly the curve of infected rises - see it here http://www.flattenthecurve.com/
Dear Valued Customer,
I appreciate the trust you place in Citrix and our solutions to help empower secure and reliable working conditions for your employees worldwide.
In the current environment, it is important for all of us to work smarter, safer, and more flexibly. That’s why I want to personally update you on COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the steps we are taking to ensure the safety and productivity of our employees, customers, partners, and communities around the globe.
For more than 30 years, Citrix has been delivering secure, remote-work solutions and preparing continuity plans for reliable operations and customer support. As a global technology leader, we support and have strong relationships with health experts, governments, and local authorities in the communities in which we live and work. We are in constant contact with these groups to ensure our policies and procedures meet and exceed their guidelines.
In light of the evolving situation, Citrix has taken the following measures to ensure the security and productivity of our customers, partners, and employees:
• Eliminated all non-critical business travel for all Citrix employees worldwide.
• Encouraged or mandated work-from-home procedures for employees in effected or high-risk areas.
• Maintained cloud operations and customer support service levels by using Citrix solutions to support remote working and workload transfer to other secure locations.
• Cancelled participation in large industry events and other gatherings through the end of March. We continue to evaluate the need to extend this policy.
We also established a business continuity micro-site to help you design and advance your own business readiness plans and remote-work initiatives. We continue to work with government and health authorities to monitor conditions and are committed to keeping you fully informed as the situation evolves.
We have introduced special offers and services to help customers scale their own secure, remote work initiatives to ensure the safety of employees and to maintain business operations. You can get more detail here on the Citrix measures and special offers designed to help you maintain and, if needed, scale up a safe and productive work environment.
We understand that in today’s increasingly digital world, secure, and reliable access to business applications and information is fundamental to empowering employees and businesses to perform at their very best – anytime, anywhere. It’s why I believe that Citrix’s mission to power a better way to work is never more important than at times like this.
Thank you for your continued trust in Citrix, and I look forward to continuing to support the success of you and your organization in the months and years ahead.
