Overall Satisfaction with Citrix ADC (formerly NetScaler ADC)

Citrix NetScaler was purchased for our department to serve as the primary load balancer for all of our web applications. Whether it was MS Exchange or an important web server to host for our staff or customers, this has been a product that is necessary to complete our objectives. Not only does Citrix have great load-balancing capabilities but they also offer a solid Web Application Firewall as well. This has helped us add another layer of additional security to our environment to block the top 10 OWASP threats. If you're looking for a product to accomplish this, look no further.
  • Support is fantastic!
  • The software upgrades are simple.
  • Installing the hardware and setting up the load-balancing is not too complicated due to the wealth of documentation they have.
  • Rule building is complex.
  • Saved us millions perhaps in damages that could of happened if our web applications were hacked.
Citrix ADC is a must for enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Share Point, or another critical website that need to be load balanced across the network. It may not be suitable for a small business who just needs to host there own website or may not have the need for high availability.
