  • Content and app caching – NetScaler AppCache provides high performance caching of both static content and dynamically generated web content.
  • Database load balancing – Intelligent, SQL-aware load balancing of database servers to scale the data tier and deliver better database performance.

Next-generation security

NetScaler secures applications and networks from a wide variety of threats and attacks, prevents the leakage of confidential data, and protects sensitive communications with SSL and SSL VPN capabilities.

  • Application Firewall – Blocks 100% of attacks targeting vulnerabilities in web and web services applications.
  • Secure Remote Access – Fully integrated SSL VPN protects mobile users.
  • FIPS Compliance – FIPS compliant appliances with 4.5+ Gbps of SSL throughput.

Centralized management

Application delivery and load balancing policies can be defined and managed using a simple declarative policy engine, with no programming expertise required.

  • NetScaler Command Center – Comprehensive management and monitoring solution for centralized configuration and control of all NetScaler platforms.
  • AppExpert Policy Management – Single policy management for all aspects of load balancing and app delivery, including pre-defined AppExpert templates for rapid deployment with popular enterprise business applications.

 Full application visibility and control

Meeting strict performance SLAs is greatly simplified with end-to-end monitoring that transforms network data into actionable business intelligence.

  • NetScaler Insight Center – Provides a 360-degree view for all web application and virtual desktop traffic, with unmatched visibility for Citrix HDX .
  • NetScaler ActionAnalytics – Integrated real-time performance analysis capabilities and adaptive policy controls for on-the-fly NetScaler policy optimization

Citrix NetScaler Gateway

Citrix NetScaler Gateway, formerly Access Gateway, is a secure application and data access solution that provides administrators granular application- and data-level control while empowering users with remote access from anywhere. It gives IT administrators a single point to manage access control and limit actions within sessions based on both user identity and the endpoint device, providing better application security, data protection and compliance management. Additionally, NetScaler Gateway offers industry-leading performance and scalability with appliances that scale to more than 10,000 concurrent users. Citrix offers both physical and virtual NetScaler Gateway appliances, giving administrators ultimate flexibility to choose the deployment option that best meets their organization’s secure access requirements.
