This article provides a list of the latest customer-facing features for the Citrix Secure Internet Access (CSIA) 2021-Q3 Release.
December 2, 2021
Azure Active Directory support for SSO
Azure Active Directory (AD) is also supported as an Identity Provider (IdP) for Single sign-on (SSO) with Citrix Secure Internet Access (CSIA) account. By default, the CSIA account is configured with Citrix IdP settings. If the Citrix tenant has Azure AD enabled, the CSIA account is configured with Azure AD IdP for SSO validation. Currently, a given CSIA account can be configured to have either Azure AD IdP or Citrix IdP settings.
Integration with Citrix Secure Browser Service
Citrix Secure Browser Service provides Remote Browser Isolation by isolating web browsing to protect the corporate network from browser-based attacks. With Citrix Secure Internet Access, you can create and apply web filtering rules to redirect web traffic to a Secure Browser instance.

Internet breakout for Cloud Connector traffic
Traffic to Citrix Secure Internet Access cloud nodes is redirected through internet services instead of the IPsec and GRE tunnels deployed on the site. With this direct breakout, you avoid tunneling the traffic twice.
To ensure that you don’t miss important messages about iboss subscription and configuration changes, the Citrix Secure Internet Access service displays alerts as notifications within the Dashboard.
To minimize latency in particular locations, you can now reconfigure the location of your nodes within a geographical region. You can also edit the number of users assigned to these nodes.
Multi-links support with IPsec and GRE tunnels
Deliver network traffic over multiple tunnels in parallel by configuring tunnels from a single location with multiple ISP connections to the same Service Provider points of presence (PoPs).
Network map of PoPs under a node
View which points of presence (PoPs) are being used for a customer and the SD-WAN branches that connect to Citrix Secure Internet Access PoPs.
Role settings (Technical Preview)
Citrix is offering role-based access control (RBAC). RBAC gives you the ability to customize permission-based roles and to add these roles to different users.
