Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The scalability and stability are quite good in general.""The most valuable feature is security, as it gives me the port bindings that cannot be accomplished using other solutions.""Downtime for branch offices is now almost zero. We have 100% real-time visibility into all of our lines. MPLS links have been replaced with lower-cost links, saving a larger percentage of line costs. Overall, I see SD-WAN as a must. And the Citrix SD-WAN product has delivered on expectations and exceeded them. (With later firmware updates we now have good firewall capabilities in the product too).""The most valuable feature is its reliability.""The best feature is the backup capability, where all of the users' computers are tied into a central data repository."

"The central security management center and the content management center are very good.""When our customer needs some optimization, along with performance and security. If they want everything in one package, I recommend Forcepoint because they have everything.""The simplicity of the solution is its most valuable asset. It's very user-friendly.""The support is great. They also have very good categorization. It's very good. It captures a lot of threats.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the support.""The most valuable feature is SD-WAN.""Forcepoint is a complete package because it has network and systems applications. Other firewalls are only for the network.""The most valuable feature is the console management."

Cons
"The initial setup could be a bit easier.""I would like to either see the price reduced or have it packaged with other products to give better value for the money.""The firewall reporting could be easier to use and filter. (It works well enough, but if I need to give an area for improvement, I think this would be it.). The built-in reporting on the product in this regard is not great.""I would like to see support for additional reporting.""Citrix should continue to offer a perpetual licensing model because it is very important to us."

"This solution would be improved with the inclusion of custom reporting.""The optimization is not really ready. If you want very good optimization, you have to add it to the network.""The solution's support could use improvement.""Making this solution easier to use would be an improvement.""Forcepoint would be improved if there were more training available.""They should have a local vendor who can provide support. Most of the support is overseas, so the time zones can be a problem.""If I want to allow access to Facebook, yet not allow the user to access videos, then I am not able to do it with this product.""The solution needs to build upon its network functionality. It needs to be a bit smarter."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"As NetScaler is now, I find it quite pricey.""The price of the subscription should be cheaper."

More Citrix SD-WAN Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The big advantage of this solution is that we can select the right model for our requirements, which is not too expensive.""I believe the licensing fee is for one year, three years, and five years, or something like that. If you wants to increase the support level from a simpler level to platinum, I think that there's a cost. There are differences between every kind of support, but I don't know the numbers.""We would love to take other solution from Forcepoint, but unfortunately the price is too high. That's why we are not considering using Forcepoing for our proxy and DLB. They have a very good DLB, but the matter in the end is the cost.""Forcepoint is very expensive but it's really secure.""It is expensive.""The training that they offer to their end-customers. It's quite expensive, I believe it costs roughly $11,000""Everything in Forcepoint comes with an individual license, which is kind of a problem. In our last meeting, they said that it may change at the beginning of 2021, and they will try to merge some licenses together. Customers will get more features than what they got previously. We will wait and see.""We have found the price could be reduced. It is a little expensive."

Top Answer: Citrix should continue to offer a perpetual licensing model because it is very important to us.
Top Answer: I like the IPS. IPS is the master feature. I depend on the firewall and sandbox.
Top Answer: We have just a subscription for the cloud, and this license is great. The license is so good.
Top Answer: Management could be better. They can improve the management. I think all our customers can't accept firewalls that have standalone management. So, they prefer Fortinet or Palo Alto. But overall… more »
