Citrix Gateway

It is a solid workhorse of a VPN client, and because of what it can connect to, it has the ability to do great things. but with sharp tools, remember to watch your fingers, as, without a solid security plan, the Citrix NetScaler Access Gateway can be dangerous to the company. [this goes for all VPN clients].

Sonicwall SMA is a cost-effective solution, with pay as per your need service, ranging from 5 users to unlimited. SMA can be deployed on VM as well as it can be appliance-based that can be directly deployed in your environment on the go. Also, you can enable MFA for implementing a more secure way the users connect back to your network.

Pros

Citrix Gateway

  • Citrix Netscaler Gateway is a solid front end for any organizations externally facing infrastructure. Nothing is impenetrable but Netscaler is as close to it as you can get.
  • Netscaler is high on available customization so it can be used by both small shops and large shops in that it offers opportunity to change most parts of the system to your liking.
  • In blending well with Citrix Xenapp and Xendesktop systems, Netscaler is particularly strong in protecting other Citrix products. Both the Netscaler and the Xen systems have hooks built into them to best use each other.

Cons

Citrix Gateway

  • Cannot use Microsoft TEAMS through Citrix Gateway. This is used daily and is a big problem.
  • Cannot access software on computer in the office, outside of the office
  • Have to use other programs other than Citrix Gateway to access BNA Interactive Forms software and Microsoft TEAMS.

SonicWall Secure Mobile Access (SMA)

  • SMA is limited to only SSL VPN , it should have support for hybrid VPN (SSL + IPSEC)
  • There are different specs and features for Enterprise and SMB. Features should be same for all devices.
  • It does not have URL filtering, content filtering, AV/IPS and Threat Prevention features. For achieving the same, we need to deploy another product like firewall or proxy.

Support Rating

Citrix Gateway

Citrix Gateway 8.0
Based on 3 answers
Support is pretty good and pretty fast to respond. I can't say I can really complain about the support experience I've had with them, as they've resolved issues within a reasonable time-frame. Of course, they could always be faster and better, but I think for what we pay, it's well worth the money.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix Gateway

The main benefit of Citrix above other access gateways (for example Remote Desktop Connection/LogMeIn) is that it is relatively intuitive and easy to use for both the Gateway host and anyone using the gateway to access data. It also provides more flexibility than most other products when it comes to configuring the security of the Gateway to reflect the varying protection levels needed by different organisations/for different data

Return on Investment

Citrix Gateway

  • As an end user, I cannot speak to the ROI in a positive or negative light. My understanding would be that is a positive as we have been using it for several years.
