"It's a very friendly solution, easy to configure and it's very flexible."
"The solution is user-friendly and the CLA troubleshooting is easier compared to other solutions."
"It helps with the efficiency of application deployments and data security."
"The most valuable features in A10 Networks Thunder ADC are the ease of configuration, user-friendliness, and simplicity to sell to customers."
"It's very easy to configure."
"The best feature of Citrix is its track record of stability in its features."
"The solution improves security performance."
"The load balancing and VPN features are most valuable. AAA authentication is also valuable."
"The load balancing feature and the fact that you can do context switching in the WAF are the most valuable. We majorly use it for load balancing, but we also use it for context switching in the WAF. It is also robust and very easy to work with and manage."
"The most valuable features of Citrix ADC are load balancing and application firewall."
"The most valuable feature of Citrix ADC is its ease of use."
"High availability, performance, and security are the main pillars. It enhances the security for accessing the applications."
"The interface and integrated custom applications can be a bit difficult."
"There is two-factor authentication built-in, but it could be more robust."
"A10 Networks Thunder ADC could improve on the Application Delivery Controller. it's not a fully-fledged web application firewall solution. For example, application data and support need to improve."
"The user interface is not as pretty as it could be."
"There are competitors that have more features."
"Native integration needs to be improved. You cannot build ISE codes natively. For DevOps, integration would be very helpful because it would be a lot simpler from an operational standpoint."
"It does not have a sandbox cloud service and antivirus. It should have on-prem or cloud sandboxing and antivirus."
"The interface needs to be improved because the competition is coming up with ones that are more eye-catching, straightforward, and sophisticated."
"We are looking for some in-depth monitoring and analytics and more information that Citrix Director doesn't provide. ControlUp has insights that not only give you an overview but also allow you to do some drill-down troubleshooting for what's going on in your environment. We are looking for some more analytical and monitoring data to be able to monitor the environment better, not only from an application standpoint but also from the standpoint of the infrastructure to everything it sits on. They can provide more data to the administrators about what's going on within the application. They can provide data not only on the application side but also about what the application sits on. They're making strides with Citrix Analytics in regards to that."
"The technical support could be improved. They do not respond or assist customers in a timely manner."
"Citrix ADC is a complex product, and it takes time to understand these things. But the documentation is poor, and the deployment is difficult. Integration could also be better because what I find is that you cannot easily integrate the panel in the second sector. What I have found is that in the last index, there is a limitation when getting validated. Technical support could also be better."
"In terms of what could be improved, I would say the user interface because sometimes it can be complicated."
"The solution could be more secure."
