Citrix StoreFront StyleBooks

StoreFront is an enterprise app store that aggregates applications and desktops from Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops sites into a single store for users. StoreFront authenticates users to sites hosting resources and manages application stores and desktops that users access. It hosts your enterprise application store, which allows you give users self-service access to app and desktops you make available to them.
