Citrix Summit 2018 global alliance awards were announced last month in Anaheim, California. The award winners were announced at both Global and Geo events held on Jan 9.  Read awards related Citrix Blog here.

And Cisco was adjudged a Winner and given the prestigious Digital Secure Perimeter Leadership award for Cisco Network Automation Solution (Cisco ACI) with Citrix NetScaler. And what a way to start the New Year.

The award aligns perfectly with Citrix’s pioneering work in advancing the Secure Digital Workspace, bringing together the three pillars Unified, Secure and Context in delivering simplified management benefits to customers in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Click here for more…

The last one year has been embellished with awards and recognitions for Cisco at Citrix events. First, the Best of Citrix Synergy award 2017 for ACI-NetScaler solution, in the Storage, Networking and Infrastructure category. And now this leadership award at the Citrix Summit 2018.

I want to extend my congratulations to the entire team at Cisco Insieme Business Unit and recognize their hard work in developing this award winning product. Cisco appreciates the recognition from the Citrix Summit judges and it’s a great complement to the recognition ACI is getting from its customers.

There was a multi-fold spike in customer interest for ACI throughout the event after the awards news was announced. It is a fitting testimony to our continuous innovation with Citrix in extending the power of our networking and analytics solutions to the cloud, and culminating in recent customer wins and references with Okada Manila, Vecozo, YRC Freight specifically.

We are pleased to share that our solutions portfolio with Citrix is expanding into deeper and advanced use cases to cover Security & Analytics (Cisco Tetration – Citrix MAS & NetScaler) and Network Assurance (Cisco Network Assurance Engine – Citrix NetScaler); all of which are gaining significant traction with customers across industry verticals.
