Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The stability is good. If there is a problem, the load will be shifted to other sites automatically, which has been a good experience for us.""The work balancing applications are the most valuable feature.""The web application firewall which protects our services on the internet, and then of course services like our ability to provide high availability for the services we are offering are the most valuable features.""When our primary link goes down I can still get to my Cisco devices and the NetScaler devices on-prem because of the SDN solution. If the internet connection at one of the branches goes down, we can still route them, they still get internet based on the SDN solution through one of the other sites. They can carry on working."

"The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs.""Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts.""This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date.""The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects.""We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities."

Cons
"The reporting is not so good. They don't have an application to connect the logs.""The product could be improved by making it easier to use and easier to implement.""The user interface could be more friendly. Some wizards and other documentation for administrators, as well as some use cases, helps us to understand the solution.""Security could be improved because then I can get rid of my Cisco firewalls. If they improve the security then I could run my security, my proxy, my firewalling and my SDN solution on one device instead of having to have multiple devices."

"The security of the product could be adjusted.""Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM.""For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved.""The pricing of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's a bit expensive.""The pricing of the solution is a bit high. The solution should offer different pricing systems."

Overview

Citrix Web App Firewall is a web application firewall (WAF) that protects web applications and sites from both known and unknown attacks, including application-layer and zero-day threats. Despite an ever-evolving threat landscape, Citrix Web App Firewall delivers comprehensive protection without degrading throughput or application response times. Available as a cloud solution or integrated within the Citrix ADC platform, simplified configuration controls further mitigate risk. Our pooled licensing options allow you to grow incrementally and scale on demand.

Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 - TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port.
