If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Citrix Gateway, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
This is a solution I would recommend. Overall, this is a good solution that is stable, but I would like to see improvements to the logging capability. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
On a scale from one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. In the next version, I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification. Better exposure would also be a plus.
Get access from a Citrix partner, because you are sure of support from them. Also, make sure that the partner you partner with has the right skills to actually deploy the solution. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.
We use public and private cloud deployment models. For the use cases we have, the solution is perfect. It's a very mature product, it is working very nicely and it's very well established. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.
We are using the on-premises deployment model. If you compare the solution to Fortinet, Citrix Unified Gateway is good. If you compare the solution to Cisco, no, it's not so good. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.
You don't have a very steep learning curve as you do with other vendors. In terms of manageability, I think it's easy, and there's also available some tools like Citrix ADM which facilitates all the operation. I would definitely recommend this solution. It's very straightforward and easy to use. can be used in a lot os use cases, from the pure traffic management, secure remote access to protecting critical web sites. There's also a wide and participative community using the solution, so the use case and issue you face probably is already "googlable". I would give this solution a nine out of 10.
Most of the product is good, but we prefer F5's networks against Citrix. I would rate this solution as six out of ten.
I would recommend to other people to implement this product. Use Citrix Netscaler. It is 100%. Otherwise, I would give only a five or six out of 10 for the product.
I would rate this as ten out of ten because I don't see any issue and it is cheaper than F5. We are investing and getting additional features, such as features for applications. We get added value on that, which is good. We are getting everything we need.
