    Citrix

    The best usage scenario for Citrix Netscaler Gateway is in enterprises with a high volume of telecommuting users or in situations where the user needs to access certain applications from anywhere. In our case as a hospital, we need our doctors to access the medical records of the patients and be able to carry out any required action, with a high level of security and with a certain agility.

    SonicWall

    Based on my experience, this is a solid platform for a small to mid sized company, especially when there is someone who has IT experience, or can get outsourced IT help. I would not recommend for someone who is a technology novice. Also, this is a competent device for someone who is looking to add VPN services for remote workers.

    Cons

    Citrix

    • I suggest make it more faster because sometimes its lagging but not all the time.
    • When it comes to Notepad I suggest having options for the size of fonts, and color of fonts, to make it look nicer.
    • I suggest making it more user-friendly, and more features so that users can perfectly maximize this tool.

    SonicWall

    • management is confusing has many items that could be improved to facilitate the work to the network administrator
    • in the diagnostic tool I would improve the response times, that is, if a ping test is required, it should be quick, since in cases of failures it is sought to minimize the impact as much as possible.
    • each function has a different license item, I would place a single license package for all team functions

      Support Rating

      Citrix

      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.

      SonicWall

      I have used the SonicWall TZ 350 for years and I can say that it is an excellent and complete firewall. It is easy to configure and administer because it has a friendly interface. It is safe, it offers several types of security features, VPN, and also protection against malware. Support and warranty also recommended. It's fast and the problem was solved in less than 1 day.

      Alternatives Considered

      Citrix

      I have not used any products that are somewhat similar to what Citrix Gateway does. And I don't think my company does have another product like it. I have worked in 3 different lines of business for the past 3 years in the company but this is the only time I was required to use it.

      SonicWall

      SonicWall and WatchGuard are both fine appliances, but I am accustomed to the Barracuda NG. The Barracuda Control Center is so powerful and useful that it beats out the other two. SonicWall does a great job of dividing up firewall rules and NAT policies, but this is a preference among engineers.

      Return on Investment

      Citrix

      • we moved from Cisco to Citrix VPN, and no longer had to worry about certificate issues
      • profile issues from Cisco were no longer a problem with Citrix.
      • the amount of time PER VPN call dropped significantly in the internal helpdesk, however, the volume of calls stayed the same.

      SonicWall

      • VPN access allowed employees to be more flexible and being able to get internal resources from anywhere.
      • Lower licensing price compared to competitors saved some money.
      • Protecting from unnecessary connections increased performance and uptime.
      • One of the firmware versions caused CPU performance degradation that slowed down the Internet speed which caused issues in the call center.
