Enduser Drive Mapping Risks?

Enduser Drive Mapping Risks?

Enduser Drive Mapping Risks?

(OP)
As an end user I need to access an application at a 3rd party vendor site. They are publishing it though Citrix. I have no issues with Citrix, but they are requiring Client Drive Mapping in order to be able to save any of the files I am reviewing.
My company is very security concious.

What are the risks if any that someone (including a disgruntled admin) could gain access to information on my local machine?

RE: Enduser Drive Mapping Risks?

The drive access is limited to your connection. As a Citrix admin, or even from the Citrix server itself, I cannot see or access other user's local resources.

That's perfect.

I guess the real risk would be a "no pop-up required" shadow session.

Thanks-
