Pros
"I like the ease of use. It's easy to manage. I also like it's ease of use with virtualization technologies with applications.""I find all of it to be valuable, because of the flexibility that is built into this product.""The feature that I have found most valuable is its load balancing.""Citrix Director has been great. It gives us one pane of glass to be able to monitor what's going on with the user sessions as well as to keep on top of the virtual desktops, any servers that may be offline or behaving suspiciously, or any troublesome spots like disconnections. We also use Citrix Studio for maintaining the actual servers that are hosting these applications. We use it for delivery groups in case we need to modify delivery groups in regards to which groups have access to which applications. It has been very helpful.""Compared to other solutions, Citrix ADC is much more robust in terms of the native integration to cloud platforms. It is far more robust from an operational point of view as well.""It is simple for both IT specialists and customers.""The solution is easy to work with and manage.""The most valuable features of Citrix ADC are load balancing and application firewall."

Cons
"The technical support could be improved. They do not respond or assist customers in a timely manner.""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.""This is an expensive solution.""The interface needs to be improved because the competition is coming up with ones that are more eye-catching, straightforward, and sophisticated.""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.""The solution could be more secure.""It does not have a sandbox cloud service and antivirus. It should have on-prem or cloud sandboxing and antivirus.""The security is okay, but the monitoring and reporting need improvement."

"Support is an area that needs improvement.""We recently had a problem with the tables Obsolete ARP which was observed by the support team. It would be good to diagnose and solve this problem with a patch since it is not documented that it will be solved in later updates.""We are having a difficult time with the security module, and how to implement the Radware security."
