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."

"First and foremost, it enables the customer to deploy high availability connections. This kind of solution enables them to deploy these HA connections for policies mostly automatically. It's a more automated approach than with other vendors.""We had several clients that were paying $7,500 a month for an MPLS line for one single 10 megabit circuit and we were able to take that from $7,500 a month down to $500 a month for two 10 megabits circuits that added redundancy where before they did not have redundancy and it gave them a much better throughput.""The most valuable feature is the support for asymmetric lines."

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."

More Citrix SD-WAN Cons »

"They have to implement more security with it. The security, mainly their firewall functions, have to be included in the firewall features.""Their WAN optimization in terms of wireless connectivity doesn't have a very good cellular capability.""The security can be improved, with the firewall for example, because they supply a basic one but not a UTM."

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 »

"You typically will license the hardware and you license the software to access the hardware capabilities. The price will range anywhere from a hundred to $300 a month. There are no additional costs.""The licensing fees depend on the bandwidth. As an example of what we charge our customers, for 100MB without Boost, the price is approximately $2,000. That includes the licensing and the unit."
