Hybrid and multi-cloud are the new norm for digital transformation. Most chief digital officers and CIOs are already deep into their cloud-transformation journey as they work through a long-term digital-transformation strategy. If you’re attending Citrix Synergy 2019, we have some great sessions that will help you on your journey.

The Customer Journey to Hybrid Cloud with Citrix ADC

At Citrix, we’ve seen customers move from on-premises to a hybrid multi-cloud model for better end-user experience, improved response time, higher app availability and scalability, better cost, and compliance. Take Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack for example. They create a consistent hybrid-cloud solution for enterprises so users have the same experience on and off premises. Today we more than five key public cloud infrastructure providers, each with their own specialties. An enterprise could have several reasons for mandating a multi-cloud solution including:

  • Access best-of-breed technologies
  • Avoid lock-in
  • Ensure deployment flexibility
  • Local data store for compliance
  • Performance with local infrastructure
  • Disaster recovery across cloud
  • Reliability and attack protection
  • Cost advantage and lower total cost of ownership

When building a hybrid, multi-cloud app delivery strategy, Citrix ADC can help you deliver the best application experience across any network or cloud while keeping apps and APIs secure and achieving automation and visibility across environments.

Hybrid Cloud and Secure App and Workspace Delivery

Any organization with a public-facing app needs to protect their assets and reduce risk. Applications and APIs face risk from attacks like DDoS and DNS, as well as attacks on app logic. The newest attack vector against apps and APIs is bots, which can require IT to invest more resources to process the non-human/non-customer requests on their infrastructure.

Citrix offers a comprehensive solution as part of Citrix ADC that include Intelligent Traffic Management for DR and DDoS protections, as well as better price/performance SSL. In addition, Citrix Web App Firewall protects against OWASP’s Top 10 attacks as well as new CVEs announced on various application stacks. As part of the premium package, Citrix will also offer bot management solutions, including behavior-based detection.

Citrix also enables customers to consolidate their API gateways into the Citrix deployment. Functions like API authentication, API rate limiting, and content routing can easily be configured on Citrix ADC to secure APIs.
