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."

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."

More Citrix Gateway Cons »

"In the next release, I would like the ability to work offline with remote access.""Every time that I have a new phone or computer, it takes a little longer to deploy it.""If they had dashboards or a report for managers or executives, then it would allow them to see the status and have it make sense to them.""It gets out of sync with Active Directory or whatever it might be, whatever the authentication piece is on Active Directory, and they just reset it on the backend. I never have to contact the vendor."

Symantec VIP Access Manager can also protect and consolidate access management for on-premise web applications. It also simplifies compliance auditing for cloud applications by consolidating logs across all applications it protects.
