    Citrix Virtual Apps

    Citrix Virtual Apps is well suited for environments that require remote access with 25 or more users. It is not appropriate for small sites with 10 or fewer users due to the cost of ownership. Citrix Virtual Apps pricing plus Windows RDS licensing as well is required. Smaller organizations may not find the cost-benefit due to overall costs and/or the cost of managing the environment.

    It does exactly what it needs to. The only times I've had serious issues with rolling out to a vendor is when they have a "contractual agreement" to only use their solution. Almost every vendor that I've worked with and shown this product to has been skeptical for the first 5 minutes and fully converted to liking the ease of use of the product by 10 minutes

    Pros

    Citrix Virtual Apps

    • Excellent for remote satellite users with low bandwidth and high latency connection.
    • Keeps data and applications secure in the data center as users are only getting "screenshots" of the application and mouse/keyboard inputs.
    • Platform agnostic allowing users to access from Apple OSX, iOS, Android devices, Windows, and Linux.
    • Allows increase user density when applications are installed on centralized servers as opposed to on user desktops and laptops.

    SecureLink Enterprise Access

    • Easy to setup on a client PC or server for access
    • Organizes client connections by gatekeeper so it is easy to find what you need
    • File transfer option is great for uploading files to client servers

    Cons

    Citrix Virtual Apps

    • Although I recommend Xenapp in all serious VDI/remote application situations, it is expensive and will add a lot of money to any projects budget. Some places will have a hard time justifying using it vs. the built in (free) Microsoft product and this makes the cost an area they could improve on.
    • Previous versions of Xenapp were more admin friendly than the current iteration. One example would be the ability to assign values to each server in your farm such that if you had a server that you wanted less users on it was an easy task. Xenapp now divides the users evenly with little way of doing granular load balancing.
    • Another crucial missing feature of Xenapp is the ability to move users from one server to another without making them log back in. For example, if you have a server that you know is having an issue it would be helpful if we could move users off onto a healthy server without making them logoff/kicking them off.

    SecureLink Enterprise Access

    • Java based. Always an issue. I know they are working on this and it will be Javaless if we need it. I know that Java can cause issues across the board and I understand the need of it, but it does not make it any better when there are Java issues.
    • Stronger integration with the Active Directory. Currently its only read-only, which is good and bad.
    • I would love to see an App. I know they are working on this as well.

    The employees at Securelink have always been responsive and seem to be invested in the success of my company. They truly understand what their product means to us so if there is a problem, they are always willing to help. In the rare event that something is found on their end, they will be proactive and reach out to someone to help and get something on calendar for a fix

    Alternatives Considered

    Citrix Virtual Apps

    We tried Microsoft's RemoteApp before settling on Citirx's XenApp. RemoteApp is not scalable for large implementations, management can not be guaranteed, and multiple server management is not available. RemoteApp is best suited for smaller environments that do not require complex publishing. Citrix XenApp provides customers with improved maintenance and manageability, improved end-user experience for application delivery, and increased performance for users.

    Securelink seems to work better than LogMein for a large enterprise group. Our company has over 10,000 different connections and securelink manages them well.

    Return on Investment

    Citrix Virtual Apps

    • Adding additional seats to the license usually comes with a lot of up-sell before the sales rep will actually sell you the license you need.
    • The requirement of Microsoft RDS to run Citrix XenApp doubles the cost required to run and adds an additional server. RDS could be used alone to do the same thing Citrix does.
    • The cost of upgrading (and dependencyon on) RDS licenses prevents us from upgrading the citrix environment.
    • Once setup, it is fairly stable and requires very little admin intervention.
    • Our External Auditors quickly approved Citrix as a security tool.

    SecureLink Enterprise Access

    • I've found that Securelink allows me to get a vendor access to an application for support purposes much faster than a provisioned VPN account and the red tape around this. I can set up a vendor to access an application suite in a half hour and it will be more secure than regular provisioning.
    • The ROI is yet to be seen on this, but it certainly makes Compliance, Internal Audit, and Legal very happy, which helps everybody.
    • Internally, there is much more push back and it has been problematic. For a tech, to have to log in to a server and navigate to a system is considered cumbersome, when before all they had to do was open up Putty or RDP to a server to get in. The only way to combat this is to force them to use Securelink by removing rights. Near impossible for the domain admins.
