We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The interface and software features are the most valuable aspects of this solution."
"Its visibility and login mechanism are the best parts. In addition to the great visibility it has a great dashboard and an easy to configure graphic user interface, a beautiful GUI."
"My customers have told me that the performance of this solution is good."
"The solution is very stable. We don't have any downtime or issues of that nature."
"The solution was very easy to deploy."
"The program is easy to install and to set up."
"This solution increases the backend network service performance, which is one of the things that we like the most."
"The load balancing is one of the most valuable features."
"The most valuable feature is load balancing."
"It is a complete solution for those looking for an all-in-one."
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents."
"I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."
"I would like to see multifactor authentication added to this solution to improve the security."
"The solution is a bit more expensive than some of the available solutions in this region. One solution in particular that I noticed was cheaper was Kemp."
"We have issues with the certificates. All authorization processes need certificates, however, every three months we needed to change certificates. This process iss complicated for us because Citrix does not have a not user-friendly interface and does not off user-friendly services. This needs a lot of improvement."
"I think the documentation should be improved."
"Some of our customers have questioned the security of this solution lately, wondering whether it is safe or not, so enhancements in this respect would be good."
"I will try to migrate all the tools to the cloud because there is more lab and more VPN scalability available in the cloud. It is not available on-premises."
"The WAF component needs to be simplified so that it is easier to use."
"Too many bugs in the software and it's always difficult when you need to update."
"With Avi Networks, you can buy a 10-Gig license and, if your primary data center goes down, in the flick of a switch you can move that license to your backup data center and it will generate the traffic... there are a lot of cost-effective measures."
"Citrix NetScaler VPX is not the cheapest solution out there, but you get what you pay for."
"The licensing costs for this solution vary depending on which model is being used."
"Our licensing fees including technical support are approximately $3,500 USD."
"It's an expensive product but it works well."
"We get value for money. Its price is fair. I don't think it is overpriced."
"This product is more expensive than some of the competitors."
"It is very pricey, but we get it. If you need the best, money shouldn't be a problem."
"When compared to other solutions, the cost is high."
