Pros
"The session monitoring capability is good.""The technical support is very responsive and fast""The solution is stable.""The most valuable feature is that it is secure.""It adds great security to your outfacing information.""Just creating that gateway to the storefront for Citrix is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.""The solution has very flexible configuration.""It is easy to set up and is stable.

More Citrix Gateway Pros →

"The most valuable feature is the interface with SCAP, which is the Security Content Automation Protocol.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the tracking of the devices.""The feature with the highest rating for me is its employee management. I can also praise how versatile it is in terms of operating systems. It has good support for multiple operating systems and can easily manage them all. Not just that, but it can also support any kind of tool that can be run on all these operating systems.""VMware Workspace ONE has been stable so far.""Workspace ONE adds a lot of value compared to Microsoft because Microsoft is a late entry into the market, and they're still developing their product from an end-user perspective. Workspace ONE has a slight edge because of AirWatch. VMware has developed its product over a longer period of time, so they have better integrations as a whole solution.""VMware Workspace ONE is scalable.""The performance is good, and it is easy to configure.""The most valuable feature is the security policies."

Cons
"I would like to see improved logging because it doesn't keep much information for the session monitoring or historical sessions.""We are currently looking at automation. It would be good if there is some way to automate it in a fast way. It should be easy to automate. It also has some security issues.""As Citrix Gateway is a third party solution, we wish to have one which is more integrated and involves less administration.""We have experienced issues relating to multi-factor authentication""Their VAS product should be more productive because right now, we are using other VAS solutions but not using this one.""Technical support could be improved.""The solution has unnecessary limitations.""Its interface could be made a lot easier. It is very kludgy."

More Citrix Gateway Cons →

"The location service could improve and more integration with other devices, such as Android enterprise and Apple devices.""The app installer is something that they should really change. It creates a lot of confusion for the user.""There are other solutions that might be better for certain use cases. This is not an all-purpose solution.""I would like to see some integration with native Microsoft products such as Anti-value.""Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing.""The pricing could always be better.""Security aspects such as data loss prevention could be improved."
