Cons
"The technical support could be improved. They do not respond or assist customers in a timely manner.""Its GUI should be improved. Its CLI is powerful, but GUI needs more features.""The solution can improve their support and send tickets directly to a Citrix ADC engineer in order to avoid having to escalate each support call.""We would like the licensing model for this product to be improved, as it isn't currently very transparent. There isn't a standard package available, and each extra feature creates an additional cost.""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 security is okay, but the monitoring and reporting need improvement.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the user interface because sometimes it can be complicated.""Integration with other third party providers and third party applications could be better because it can be a bit complex at present."
