Tim Law
President & Senior Systems Engineer

In last year’s session (S1-5-NetScaler Heartbleed Vulnerability from F to A) we focused on reconfiguring NetScaler to remediate numerous SSL vulnerabilities, but identified limitations on the lower end models that capped the overall device score. In this session will revisit this topic in light of recent code changes by Citrix that have removed these caps.

In the second part of the session we’ll discuss the integration of NetScaler and Insight Center and recent developments that allow forwarding of LAN based ICA sessions to Insight Center without requiring ICA Proxy.
