Cons
"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."
