Citrix Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant for 2012 Application Delivery Controllers Magic Quadrant
Citrix today announced that Citrix has been evaluated and positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers* report authored by Gartner analysts Joe Skorupa, VP Distinguish Analyst, Neil Rickard, Research VP and Bjarne Munch, Principal Research Analyst. The report evaluates Citrix NetScaler®, the industry’s most advanced cloud networking platform. According to Gartner, Inc., “a ‘Leader’ exhibits the ability to shape the market by introducing additional capabilities in its product offerings, and by raising awareness of the importance of these features. Key capabilities for a Leader revolve around the advanced platform (AP) ADC capabilities that focus on enterprise application capabilities. We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share, especially in the AP ADCs, and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Expertise in complex data center application deployment is also necessary to be a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for ADCs.”
NetScaler ADC solutions feature innovative TriScale™ technology, which brings the elasticity, simplicity and expandability of the cloud to both enterprise and carrier networks. This revolutionary new technology enables organizations of all sizes to efficiently scale their datacenter networks up, in and out to deliver apps, desktops and data to any user, on any device over any network.
NetScaler is already well established as the industry’s leading internet delivery system, touching an estimated 75 percent of internet users each day. Citrix builds on this leadership to deliver the world’s most advanced cloud networking platform, giving customers a single, integrated solution that brings the elasticity, simplicity and expandability of the cloud to any network. This powerful combination helps customers deliver public and private cloud services with the best performance, security and reliability to any device.
