SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Citrix today announced that Citrix has been evaluated and positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the leaders quadrant in the 2012 Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers* report authored by Gartner analysts Joe Skorupa, VP Distinguish Analyst, Neil Rickard, Research VP and Bjarne Munch, Principal Research Analyst.

We expect a Leader to have strong or growing market share, especially in the AP ADCs, and to have solutions that resonate with an increasing number of enterprises. Expertise in complex data center application deployment is also necessary to be a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for ADCs."
