62% of companies are not very confident about their application security, and 43% have already experienced application breaches1. Your apps and APIs are likely at risk, and increased mobility and the adoption of multi-cloud has only added to your attack surface. This demands holistic applications and API security for both monolithic and microservices-based applications. To achieve this strong security posture across all environments, you need an application delivery solution that shares a common code base. This lets you implement consistent security policies across all your applications for comprehensive protection.
Securing your applications and APIs in a multi-cloud infrastructure is both crucial and complex. To prevent cyberattacks from taking advantage of your extended attack surface, you need to apply consistent security policies whenever you deploy any application. Because all Citrix ADC form factors share a single code base, IT can achieve a consistent security posture for all applications and APIs across multi-cloud environments. This reduces the complexity and vulnerability of your entire infrastructure, from monolithic to microservices-based apps.
With a staggering 92% of reported vulnerabilities coming from applications rather than networks2, it’s vital to protect your applications from unauthorized access through DDoS, bots, data theft, and application layer attacks. This is why Citrix ADC provides comprehensive and integrated Layer 3–7 security, including a web application firewall (WAF) to protect your applications. Identify and mitigate malicious bots with regularly updated bot signatures, behavior-based detection, and rate limits that prevent your public infrastructure from being overwhelmed. Citrix ADC also provides robust authentication and authorization features and acts as an API security gateway to prevent malicious access, so your entire application delivery infrastructure is protected.
As application security budgets increase among 50% of organizations2, it’s important to look for ways to achieve better security performance while maximizing resources and controlling costs. Secure your infrastructure while actually reducing costs with best-in-class price-per-performance for SSL. Citrix ADC lets you offload SSL to your ADC from your firewalls, IDS, and antivirus devices. By terminating SSL/TLS first and then using service chaining, you simplify your TLS/SSL termination by only doing it once instead of decrypting and encrypting all traffic individually.
