At this week’s RSA Conference, NSS Labs—the world’s leading information security research and advisory company—announced that  Citrix’s NetScaler AppFirewall™ web application security solution delivers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) per Protected Mbps.

In today’s market of increased abundance of web and mobile applications, application firewalls are essential for protection from attacks and against the loss of valuable data. NetScaler AppFirewall is a core part of the wider suite of security services available on the Citrix NetScaler® platform to protect web assets in the datacenter and the cloud.

We published a post—with all the details—about this last quarter, but it was big news once again this week amid all the security news at RSA Conference!

Key findings from the report highlight the exceptional firewall security capabilities provided by NetScaler include:

  • Lowest TCO per Protected Mbps in the Test – Delivers price performance to customers at up to 60 percent less cost than other vendors in the “Recommended” list.
  • Passed 99.77 percent of Web Application Firewall Tests – Passed comprehensive firewall security and policy enforcement requirements.
  • Passed 100% of Tested Evasions – Successfully identified and blocked attacks using evasion techniques.
  • Passed 100% of Stability and Reliability Tests

This essentially validates NetScaler’s efforts to build an outstanding product that performs well in both technical ability and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), as compared to other industry vendors.

It’s great to see Citrix receive this kind of recognition!
