Source: Citrix Systems
One of the greatest challenges confronting today's enterprises is a major shift in the threat profile, as network-layer exploits are rapidly being surpassed by more formidable attacks against applications. This is especially true for Web and Web Services applications. Consequently, the effectiveness of a modern application delivery solution depends not only its ability to deliver in the areas of performance, reliability, and cost of ownership, but on its application-layer security capabilities as well. This paper clarifies the specific security capabilities that an ideal web application delivery solution should exhibit. It also highlights the significant advantages derived from making the associated functionality available as a tightly integrated module of the Citrix NetScaler Web application delivery solution.
