As mentioned before, setup is fairly simple and documented on the Citrix eDocs. there's a lot of information and how-to articles which facilitates all the setup. The new… more»

What is most valuable?

I'm pretty well settled on Citrix. They have the highest performing application on the planet, as far as I know. Just creating that gateway to the storefront for Citrix is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.

What needs improvement?

It's extremely complicated and it's not intuitive. The solution requires a lot of training to get going on it. I'm not sure that that's necessarily a critique on it. It may be more of a critique on me and my abilities with it, however, it isn't necessarily straightforward. It could stand for some improvement in that sense. If there were wizards for standard deployments, that might be nice. If… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have a good deal of experience with Citrix. They're sitting on top of the heap as far as I can tell. It's not just clout and name recognition, but the actual product and actual performance delivery are stellar. They've got it set far as I know. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'd rate the solution a solid nine out of ten. It's a pain to set up, however, once you've got that… more»

What is most valuable?

It's a stable solution while it's running. We don't have to work on it a lot. There are not many bugs, so it's easy to use if you deploy successfully. You can be sure of an uninterrupted solution for quite a long time. Citrix is a good… more»

How has it helped my organization?

So far the DevOps team has been able to deliver apps with a consistent feel. This is still an internal project but we are pretty much excited with way it is going

What needs improvement?

Cost. Citrix costs more and you still need to have Microsoft Remote Desktop below it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Usually, with Citrix the issue is the pricing, especially for the African region. We believe it's really expensive.

What other advice do I have?

Get access from a Citrix partner, because you are sure of support from them. Also, make sure that the partner you partner with has the right skills to actually deploy the solution. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

I cannot say that now because it's just been six months. Nonetheless, we haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far.

How has it helped my organization?

The main challenge that we were facing is regarding the net application which does not work without this solution. We replaced NetScaler with the F5 solution.

What needs improvement?

The load balancing could be improved. Also, remote users should be able to carry connections to our centralized server and access applications remotely.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using F5 LTM (Local Traffic Manager) before. They are the market leader. We were using that, but we replaced it with the NetScaler.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this as ten out of ten because I don't see any issue and it is cheaper than F5. We are investing and getting additional features, such as features for applications. We get added value on that, which is good. We are getting… more»

What is most valuable?

The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN.

What needs improvement?

Citrix NetScaler is something that connects the deployment. To improve: * The interface should be more user-friendly. * Integration with other applications must improve. * They should provide training… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have an annual license.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Barracuda. We switched from Barracuda because Citrix offered better features and scalability.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend to other people to implement this product. Use Citrix Netscaler. It is 100%. Otherwise, I would give only a five or six out of 10 for the product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated F5 and Barracuda WAF.

What is most valuable?

Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and the verification feature is good as well, in my experience.

What needs improvement?

The two-factor authentication solution needs improvement. It needs a multi-factor authentification. Training videos would be helpful, and they're transitioning to a new portal, as far as I know. So the portal maybe has now improvements and they will provide for a larger community for the users and retailers. This will provide a more improved solution. A forward proxy in the next release would be… more»

What other advice do I have?

Most of the product is good, but we prefer F5's networks against Citrix. I would rate this solution as six out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is secure.

What needs improvement?

The price could be reduced because it is slightly more costly than others available in the market. Technical support could be improved. They could do something more with the dashboard.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is very high if you do a comparison with what is available in the market. It ends up being very expensive. Apart from licensing, there are additional fees for support and partnerships.

What other advice do I have?

For customers who are concerned with security and would want to have virtual machines in their environment, I recommend this solution. Otherwise, this product is costly. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

What I find most valuable about this solution is that it runs seamlessly. It is very streamlined.

What needs improvement?

Areas that should be improved are the configuration of profiles and uploading and downloading of our certificates.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. In the next version, I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification. Better exposure would also be a plus.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We haven't looked at other solutions, because our client preferred Citrix NetScaler Unified Gateway, so we had to comply with that.
