We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine."
"The stability of the solution is perfect."
"The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN."
"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."
"What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly."
"The session monitoring capability is good."
"Just creating that gateway to the storefront for Citrix is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us."
"The most valuable feature is that it is secure."
"The most valuable feature is the networking. I didn't have a good experience with the networking that Sophos has."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The solution can be a bit pricey."
"The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly."
"The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible."
"I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification."
"I would like to see improved logging because it doesn't keep much information for the session monitoring or historical sessions."
"It's extremely complicated and it's not intuitive. The solution requires a lot of training to get going on it."
"Technical support could be improved."
"I would like for them to improve the troubleshooting features. We have some problems with traffic and I can't identify where the problem is coming from. I have to open a ticket with support until it gets resolved. Microsoft doesn't offer enough tools to resolve the issue."
"Usually with Citrix the issue is the pricing, especially for the African region. We believe it's really expensive."
"Pricing is very high if you do a comparison with what is available in the market."
"I believe the pricing is comparable to SaaS"
"It costs about 4,000 a year."
"The price could be lower."

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.
A VPN gateway is a specific type of virtual network gateway that is used to send encrypted traffic between an Azure virtual network and an on-premises location over the public Internet. You can also use a VPN gateway to send encrypted traffic between Azure virtual networks over the Microsoft network. Each virtual network can have only one VPN gateway. However, you can create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway. When you create multiple connections to the same VPN gateway, all VPN tunnels share the available gateway bandwidth.
