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."

"I really love the auto-tunnel creation feature."

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."
