How NetScaler Gateway works

Citrix NetScaler Gateway is a secure remote access solution that provides administrators with application control while empowering users with access from anywhere. With flexible deployment options and a single point of management, IT administrators set policies—based on roles, devices, and networks—to control access and user actions, ensuring better data protection and compliance management. 

Identify device, user, and location


When users attempt to connect to corporate resources, NetScaler Gateway collects and verifies information including client device configuration, user identity and network location to ensure compliance with data protection policies and to optimize the user experience.

Establish a secure, accelerated connection

NetScaler Gateway establishes an encrypted connection between the client and datacenter to ensure desktops, applications, e-mail, data and other resources are securely accessed from anywhere.

Adapt access and application actions


Once a session is established, information collected about the connecting device, user, and location dynamically adapts the level of access and available actions, ensuring data protection according to their particular access scenarios.

Monitor sessions in real time and reconnect as users roam

NetScaler Gateway monitors active connections in real time to detect when a user roams between networks or moves between devices. When this occurs, NetScaler Gateway transparently reconnects the session and dynamically adapts access and available actions to ensure security as the user's access scenario changes.

Flexible Deployment Options

NetScaler Gateway is available as both a hardened physical appliance and a virtual appliance, giving IT organizations more flexibility and deployment options.
