Provides a cost-effective offering with a broad range of deployment options and feature capabilities which are well- aligned for most enterprise environments.
Is aggressively pursuing capabilities that address experimental or not well defined initiatives with a solid maps of product features.
Netscaler is deeply integrated with the Citrix suite of products.
Has a strong corporate partnership with that includes close integration between the Netscaler ADC and Cisco Nexus.

Disruptive vision with a stable growth as challengers in the ADC market, with an agile team and engaged community.
Innovation driven with Open Source technology with no vendor lock-in and broad platforms integration (hardware, virtual, bare metal and cloud).
Very high cost-effective solutions without limitation products and services, suitable for both midsize organizations and large enterprises.
Investment in R&D to deliver a technology driven by easiness, performance and security.
Company openness that provides high flexibility and agility to the customer that permits to reduce the decision time and increase the decision rate.
Is a complete ADC (Application Delivery Controller) that could manage all kinds of network protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP/S, SCTP, SIP, T/FTP, …) but also with a combination of all of them simultaneously and multiport capabilities; and it’s not oriented to licensed features.
Its operating system is fully optimized for networking so it is capable to move in layer 7 more than 140 thousand concurrent users and in layer 4 more than 10 million concurrent users with only 2 dedicated cores.
Ability to create configuration backups, easy cluster configuration, automatic replication from one node to another and stateful cluster with real time sessions replications that permits a failover between nodes without losing any connection.
Provides an integrated IPDS security system with real time black hole lists, DoS protection, black/white listing and protection of the most common network attacks.
Provides a very UX graphic interface for both operators and network engineers in Angular 2 technology.
Automation capabilities thanks to it’s fully programmable REST+JSON API.


Has yet to establish a broad online user community to promote and support its products.
Although easy to use the NetScaler ADC products have somewhat limited rule-processing capabilities.
Not all of Citrix´s channels are capable of selling and supporting the full spectrum of NetScaler features, therefore enterprises need to select Citrix´s channels more carefully.

Young brand as an open source company and yet to develop a big influence than other more established vendors.
Needs to develop a broader partnership network.
