Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Citrix Managed

Automation ensures a faster deployment and reduces manual configuration errors because you don’t need to focus on the syntax. Using rich analytics, you can monitor the application performance and take corrective action to secure the application.

The application data processed by the Service is used to track the consumption and meter the service. Consumption-based metering ensures that there is no wastage, and you pay for what you use. Consumption is calculated on the data processed in TB.

Lifecycle management in Citrix App Delivery and Security Service – Citrix Managed is automated and there is no overhead for you. Rich ADC features, such as application security (WAF, Bot signatures, IP reputation), SSL, load balancing, content routing, GSLB, and content rules are supported. Delivering applications with App Security, DNS, and load balancing is simple and intuitive.
