Provide a flawless application experience on any infrastructure

Citrix application delivery and security solutions are designed to ensure that business-critical applications perform well and remain secure. Centered around a comprehensive application delivery controller and advanced WAN, these solutions help companies succeed by ensuring an optimal user experience.

Citrix application delivery and security solutions provide the holistic visibility you need to maintain a consistent security posture—even among the most distributed environments.

What makes the Citrix application delivery platform so effective?

Your customers and workforce expect a flawless application experience at all times. But as organizations transition to a mix of web, SaaS, legacy virtual and modern cloud-native apps, it’s getting harder to meet those expectations with traditional service providers. With Citrix application delivery and security solutions, the experience stays the same no matter where your users are located or which types of apps they’re using—and IT maintains full visibility:

Citrix application delivery solutions not only enable a great user experience, but also give you holistic visibility into both that experience and your environment. Robust load balancing and flexible WAN edge features allow teams to optimize app performance regardless of app type and underlying infrastructure. The result is a consistently fast, flawless user experience.

Citrix application security solutions simplify the process of protecting an increasingly susceptible ecosystem of apps and APIs. An integrated web application firewall (WAF), volumetric distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection and bot management come together in a single pane of glass to automate and secure app connectivity.
