SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- March 19, 2013

Citrix today announced NetScaler® Insight Center, a new solution based on the
company’s advanced cloud networking platform that delivers deep visibility and
control to critical business applications and mobile services across public
and private cloud environments. Based on the innovative open standard
AppFlow™, the new NetScaler Insight Center leverages existing networking real
estate – uniquely situated at key focal points in the application path - to
provide a 360-degree view for all mobile, web and virtual desktop traffic. The
result is a network big data analytics platform that enables unprecedented
visibility and real-time insight into datacenter traffic.

As businesses embrace mobility and consumerization, traditional enterprise
applications are increasingly being complemented by a variety of new cloud,
desktop and mobile applications. The need to successfully deliver these
applications over a variety of networks to myriad device types is creating new
constraints on traditional enterprise datacenters. As the enormity and variety
of data in the datacenter grows, IT managers face the challenge of monitoring
both application and network traffic in a way that can be used to ensure an
enhanced user experience and improved user productivity, while ensuring
business continuity. Organizations need a new approach to business
intelligence that gives IT access to real time data and control across a range
of applications.

NetScaler already leverages analytics to feed real time statistics back to the
IT team and automatically optimizes the delivery of apps, virtual desktops and
mobile services, thereby adding control. With the new Insight Center
technology, companies will now be able to dynamically change policy in real
time based on data extracted from existing NetScaler real estate.

Insight Center are enabled by HDX™ Insight and Web Insight.
