As a Master Citrix Certified Instructor (CCI), the conversation around security and monitoring inevitably comes up very early from students and is a core focus of mine around any conversation I have during my classes. Security is at the top of every organization’s list as a priority in today’s world. By leveraging NetScaler ADCs, Citrix allows you to achieve that secure environment and protect your organization’s and customer’s sensitive data.

Just protecting the data is not enough however, you also need to understand what your users are doing and how your environment is performing to proactively solve security and performance issues before they occur.

The demand for training around web application security and monitoring has never been higher and delivering these courses for my students has brought their organizations to a new level of security compliance and understanding of their applications.
