We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 SpeedFusion feature is the most valuable."
"The SpeedFusion feature is good. It allowed us to move away from IPsec between the sites. It is also a really easy product to deploy."
"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."
"Its pricing is the main issue. The pricing could be improved. I would like to see an outbound policy based on the application. It is a very good feature, and most of the customers are looking for that. They can also include stronger firewall features. This would help the customers in choosing this product as the only device for the SD network."
"Their hardware support isn't the greatest. We've had one unit go down, and it took a while for them to replace it. It was in the Caribbeans, so it might be a location-related issue."
"As NetScaler is now, I find it quite pricey."
"The price of the subscription should be cheaper."
"It has lifetime licensing. Its pricing is high for most of the markets."
"Its licensing fee is on a yearly basis. For the price, it is actually pretty good value."
