We are redefining the ADC

Applications are critical to run your business, and you depend on your ADC to run your apps. Your ADC and apps used to live in the data center. But today, your applications are everywhere—like the cloud or in DevOps environments. And digital business transformation is changing how they are built, deployed, and managed.

Discover the Citrix NetScaler ADC difference

Citrix NetScaler is the proven ADC leader that helps you deliver applications easily and reliably in the face of fast change. Software-based and built for the cloud, NetScaler ADC can adapt to DevOps and microservices architectures and provide real-time application and infrastructure intelligence.

Ensure peace of mind as you transition to the cloud with an ADC that defends against new threats and attacks.

A software-first ADC
In the face of new application architectures and evolving data center technologies, our software-based ADC simplifies deployment across any form factor, any hypervisor, any cloud. And our single API and management platform provides interoperability with any orchestration platform.

Hybrid/multi-cloud manageability
Organizations today need to run their applications in both local and cloud-based data centers to optimize resources. Citrix NetScaler offers real-time analytics and end-to-end visibility of your entire application infrastructure—regardless of where the applications live.

DevOps app delivery
DevOps and microservices architectures are changing the way apps are built and managed. Citrix NetScaler allows you to bridge the gap between your traditional and DevOps apps by providing unified capabilities and management through a single console.

Application and infrastructure intelligence
With Citrix NetScaler, you can harness application and infrastructure intelligence to become more data driven and improve the user experience. Manage, monitor, and troubleshoot your entire infrastructure from a single, unified console. Use real-time analytics to identify and address app performance and security issues.

Flexible licensing
NetScaler offers a flexible license model that allows you to dynamically scale your application delivery infrastructure to respond quickly to changing conditions resulting in protection of your investment. All your NetScaler devices share the same pool of licenses, whether they’re in use at one data center or are distributed around the world.

ADC leadership
For the 10th year, NetScaler has been named a leader in the Gartner ADC Magic Quadrant report. NetScaler is recognized for the most advanced ADC capabilities in the market and as the most visionary ADC with its leadership in DevOps application delivery.

The Citrix advantage: better integration with IT
If you are a Citrix customer, you can benefit from NetScaler’s deep integration with XenApp/XenDesktop implementations. By adding NetScaler, you’ll get extended security, deep visibility, simplified user experience, and intelligence application access control.
