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.

Workspace ONE Access is a good fit for a variety of corporate scenarios, such as the need for businesses to provide secure access to their data and applications, the need to lower the costs associated with managing multiple user identities, and the need to boost employee productivity by streamlining access to corporate resources. It is less appropriate if you are not using all of its function and just use it for a particular function undermining its capabilities for example in our organization the use case is primarily restricted to giving staff members safe access to company information and applications which debunks its other features such as compliance and product support that it provides.

Pros
NetScaler
  • allows seamless use of 2-factor authentication for heightened security within the VPN, and lowers risk of an external hack because of it.
  • it allows for differing levels of security. access can be set specifically through the VPN so 2 users can use the same site and get different results depending on their active directory security policy.
  • It can grant the ability to launch a single application or an entire VPN envelope

  • It provides an "SSO" type experience for access to applications and data. Users sign in to one "portal" and then have access to whatever university systems they need to do their job.
  • It greatly simplifies securing these types of access. Firewall rulesets can be made much simpler and easier to manage, as well.

Cons
NetScaler
  • 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.

NetScaler
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.

The only other SSL VPN type product I have used was Citrix Secure Gateway. Netscaler is a MUCH more feature filled product. CSG was a free add on to older versions of Citrix Metaframe and XenApp and was specifically just used for securing Citrix infrastructure. Netscaler excels in securing Citrix but can also be used to secure shared apps of all kinds regardless of how they are published. I did do a test run on 2X's product which did include a secure gateway but then base 2X product was not really comparable to Citrix so did not go too far with it.

We also examined several other options, particularly Lenovo Unified Workspace. The Lenovo product had some advantages over the VMWare product, particularly in the areas of customization of the look / feel and user experience. However, we have been a longtime VMWare customer, and we have VMWare VDI and other product implementations in place now that paired very well with the VMWare product.

Return on Investment
NetScaler
  • Our data is secure and protected from the outside world which is priceless.
  • It saves our business money as we can provide our clients with a safe and secure alternative to accessing their data remotely rather than having to take the more expensive route of travelling on-site to gather the data we need.
  • It gives us the opportunity to host on-site training using gated cloud based environments which enhances our business services. The ability to easily change access information, such as a password, after administering a training course gives us the flexibility we need to provide and subsequently restrict access to our training environments to suit our needs.
