Citrix, a US multinational software company, has started helping Irish clients, including Dublin-based law firm William Fry, to ensure business continuity through Covid-19 as more employees work remotely.

The Nasdaq-listed firm, which is valued at around $18bn, has experienced a substantial increase in demand for its software across Europe and Ireland. It is used to help employees work remotely via a virtual desktop.

As more companies make the switch to remote working, PJ Hough, the chief product officer with Citrix, who grew up in Borrisokane, Co Tipperary, has been working with several Irish clients helping them to better manage the change.
