With the myriad of features that we launched in PAN-OS 6.0, you may have missed a new deployment option for Palo Alto Networks VM-Series in your data center. In addition to the support of VM-Series for VMware environments, you can now deploy the VM-Series on the Citrix NetScaler SDX platform. We launched this with Citrix officially today.
Virtualized and cloud environments require the secure and efficient delivery of the right applications to the right users using any device and from any location. To do this, you need an infrastructure that supports all aspects of application delivery (security, availability, performance and visibility) and embraces the key characteristics of cloud:
- Multi-tenancy – the ability to support differing needs of new application owners, business units or service provider customers
- Agility – the services must have the ability to be provisioned and de-provisioned on demand, with support for automation and orchestration
- Scalability – the services must have the ability to flexibly scale up, scale out capacity to meet the needs of the business
Citrix NetScaler SDX is an open, multi-services platform that addresses these requirements. The NetScaler SDX platform consolidates NetScaler application delivery controller (ADC), and best-in-class network and security services required for application delivery. Now, with the introduction of VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler, you’ll be able to provide dedicated instances of security and ADC for per application load balancing with dedicated firewalling. You now also have a complete, integrated security and availability solution for Citrix XenApp XenDesktop deployments – from secure remote access, high-availability and Zero trust segmentation to safe application enablement of virtual desktop users to the right applications.
