For a second consecutive year, ADC survey respondents chose Citrix

Citrix was selected as the leader in all six categories: Market, Performance, Reliability, Innovation, Price, and Service & Support.  Brand Leader Reports are designed to measure the pulse of brand leadership in specific product categories using independent, non-sponsored surveys.

The Application Delivery Controller survey was conducted in October, 2014.  Respondents were solicited from over 1,000,000 members of 100+ online IT groups, and from the IT Brand Pulse IT professional database.  Responses were collected using an online survey engine

In each part, respondents were provided with a product category description, list of vendor choices (Plus an other answer choice to add a vendor, if applicable), and were asked the six questions:

  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller market leader?
  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller price leader?
  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller performance leader?
  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller reliability leader?
  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller service & support leader?
  • Who do you perceive as the Application Delivery Controller innovation leader?

In 2013, driven by the Cisco partnership, Citrix vaulted past F5 in IT voting for ADC Market Leader. Based on the results of the 2014 brand leader survey, it definitely was not a fluke. IT voting for Citrix accelerated as the company achieved the highest score of the survey in this category, and opened a double-digit lead over second-place F5. With Cisco eliminated from this year’s survey, Riverbed stepped into a distant third position for Market Leader.
