We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 technical support is very responsive and fast"
"Its ease of use and how everybody can easily work through it are the most valuable features."
"It adds great security to your outfacing information."
"I can safely say this is one of the best solutions I have seen for VPN access. It can achieve what other vendors may not be able to. This product will train you about exactly what an SSL should be. You can leverage it to do whatever you wish, the way you wish to do it. This is the solution if you want a perfectly scalable product for your enterprise that can help your mobile users and integrate with the latest technologies."
"The most valuable feature is being able to securely connect and use virtual desktops."
"It is customer-friendly. It is quite easy for our users to connect. There is also the flexibility of the features."
"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."
"We have experienced issues relating to multi-factor authentication"
"We are currently looking at automation. It would be good if there is some way to automate it in a fast way. It should be easy to automate. It also has some security issues."
"Its interface could be made a lot easier. It is very kludgy."
"Zero test FDP (Fraud Protection and Prevention) should be improved."
"This solution normally works but at times, we have had trouble with connectivity."
"We want to switch to another solution because there are some challenges with the support from Pulse. The quality of documentation is also not good. It is sometimes very hard to find documentation that provides a solution and describes how all this works."
"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."
"The cost of the product is high, but worth it because of the utility and great product support."
