You can have it on Windows, Linux or Mac, that's quite useful.I like how I don't need to see the solution or start it up. I just use my computer and have it working in the background.

The session monitoring capability is good.What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly.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 product.The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN.The stability of the solution is perfect.The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine.The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer.Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience.

Cons
The configuration from the client-side would be useful. Right now, it's not centralized. There should be a lock so that it can only be configured from one place.The setup is a bit difficult to handle on the server-side.Behavior analytics and other newer technologies should be integrated into the solution.There are situations where the connection drops, and you may not even be aware of it until you try to do something critical.I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made.It would be useful to have an automatic install process where if you connect and you don't have the latest version, it should be automatically done.Every two weeks there was a new version to install which was annoying for the users.The hotspots give me connectivity issues occasionally. It could be easier to use if it allowed me to choose the hotspot.

I would like to see improved logging because it doesn't keep much information for the session monitoring or historical sessions.I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification.The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible.The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly.The solution can be a bit pricey.The initial setup is very complex.I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features.If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement.

Overview

As mobile workers roam to different locations, an always-on intelligent VPN helps AnyConnect client devices to automatically select the optimal network access point and adapt its tunneling protocol to the most efficient method. This may include voice over IP (VoIP) traffic, TCP-based application access, or Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol for latency-sensitive traffic.

Citrix Gateway is a customer-managed solution that can be deployed on premises or on any public cloud, such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform. Citrix Gateway provides users with secure access and single sign-on to all the virtual, SaaS and web applications they need to be productive.
