Last year, Citrix was acquired by private equity firms and announced a restructuring of their strategy to focus solely on the top one thousand accounts. With that, they also made the decision to end of sale (EoS) NetScaler (Citrix ADC) perpetually licensed hardware (MPX, SDX) and perpetual software (VPX/BLX). This leaves thousands of unhappy NetScaler customers. As a Citrix customer, the time to explore a transition to F5 is now, and CubixTech stands ready to guide you through this pivotal journey.

As a top F5 Gold Partner and Managed Services Provider, CubixTech recognises the concerns and potential unease faced by thousands of Citrix NetScaler customers during these transitions. Our aim is not just to highlight a path forward but to walk alongside businesses seeking stability, innovation, and be a partner committed to your growth and digital resilience.

F5’s primary focus remains application delivery, even if it has expanded to incorporate increased security. Because of this concentration, F5 has been able to continue developing, changing, and acquiring businesses that share its purpose of application delivery and security. 

On July 18, 2023, Citrix released a security bulletin identifying three vulnerabilities in NetScaler ADC and NetScaler Gateway. The exploits on were seen on unmitigated appliances in the wild were described in this advisory.

About 2,000 Citrix NetScalers were compromised in automated massive attack campaigns recorded in 2023, hence a Citrix Replacement and migration is necessary today.

Citrix vs. F5: The Security Perspective

Recent exploits targeting Citrix NetScaler ADC and Gateway highlight the ever-present risks in digital environments. F5's distributed cloud infrastructure and comprehensive security products, including Advanced WAF and DDoS Hybrid Defender, offer a robust defence against such vulnerabilities, ensuring that your digital assets remain secure.

Citrix has been a key player in providing virtualisation and cloud computing solutions. However, with recent vulnerabilities and strategic shifts leaving some customers looking for alternatives, F5 presents a compelling proposition. F5's dedication to application delivery and security, bolstered by smart acquisitions, positions it as the ideal successor for those seeking to upgrade their digital infrastructure

A Citrix Replacement (specifically Citrix NetScaler ADC) in 2024 is important for safety and security reasons, which is mentioned in this article ahead.
