you will need Citrix Endpoint Management to implement true device trust.
you can "fake it" by using certificate-based authentication (and add the certificate to device) but these will tight to authentication and authorisation. there are more on-going issues for managing those certificate.

Personally, I am a Microsoft specialist so I am using Azure AD and conditional access to meet the device trust requirement


Thanks Jian,
Citrix Endpoint Management seems pretty powerful for a number of other things. Will review further. Thanks!

Citrix Cloud does support Azure AD authentication. Azure AD is something we are working on. Does Azure conditional access provide intel of authentication like the user, granular geolocation, device, and login history?
