Text-based session watermarks
Citrix recently introduced a new feature to track data theft by giving administrators the ability to enable watermarks in their user sessions. This feature is supported for both Server and Desktop OS and requires a minimum of Virtual Delivery Agent version 7.17.
Citrix also offers the possibility to customize your sessions watermarks. The following parameters can be included or configured in the watermark:
- Client IP Address
- Connection Time
- Logon user name
- VDA host name
- VDA IP Address
- Style (Single or multiple)
- Custom text
And I bet you’re now wondering, just as I did, whether there are any exceptions. There is and they cover a few, great scenarios!
- When using Session Recording, the recorded session does not present the watermark.
- When using Windows remote assistance, the watermark does not present the watermark to the remote user.
- When pressing Print Screen key to capture the screen, the screen captured at the VDA side does not include the watermark. This also works with third party applications that triggers by pressing the Print Screen button, for an example, Greenshot.
