Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far.""Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience.""The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer.""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 initial setup is very straightforward.""It's very stable. Sometimes after installing the boxes, we leave them for one or two years. We would just touch the box in the case of the customer needing new requirements or changes to the setup.""The features I find most valuable is WildFire, user integration, and the basic technology features.""The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution.""The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN.""It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in.""The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable."

Cons
"The load balancing could be improved.""If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement.""I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features.""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."

"Dependencies of applications sometimes is a bit confusing.""Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment.""I would like to see better pricing and an easier logging process. Also, if there was a way to log a global log, everything could go onto the system. It would be better if there was a third log, otherwise one would have to do everything manually.""The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex.""Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful.""The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes.""When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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"

"The licensing cost is about 18,000 euros.""This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license.""Prisma Access is a little bit expensive."
