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

Pros
The program is easy to install and to set up.The solution was very easy to deploy.The solution is very stable. We don't have any downtime or issues of that nature.My customers have told me that the performance of this solution is good.Enables a Web service that offers persistent client-server connections, IP restriction, URL rewrite (such as remove "/assets/" path from client-side URL path), and cache for CSS or JS files... You can easily use the GUI to set up all these requirements on the same network device within 20-30 minutes. (If you do the same steps on CLI, it might take less time.)If you need PCI-compliance and have high security requirements, WAF is the most valuable feature. If you need to monitor your load-balancing services with complex types of monitoring, make sure everything is alright, and load balancing is important, Content Switching and Monitoring features are the keys to your needs. If you want to provide a lot of static images or data, the Caching feature works best for you.I would say the rewriting and redirection functions are must-have's for us.

The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is simple to deploy. The deployment took us ten minutes.

Cons
I think the documentation should be improved.We have issues with the certificates. All authorization processes need certificates, however, every three months we needed to change certificates. This process iss complicated for us because Citrix does not have a not user-friendly interface and does not off user-friendly services. This needs a lot of improvement.The solution is a bit more expensive than some of the available solutions in this region. One solution in particular that I noticed was cheaper was Kemp.I would like to see multifactor authentication added to this solution to improve the security.We had some bugs in the previous firmware. These were not big issues, but more testing on the firmware would be key to happier customers.

In terms of what needs improvement, the price could be lowered. We've tried to deploy more of them but our purchasing department has said that they're way too expensive and they would prefer to use something else.
