Solution Overview

Load balancers have become a primary conduit through which organizations manage and process communications with customers, partners, and employees. Because load balancers front end so many applications, they also host many machine identities that represent each backend application. In fact, there can be as many as 1,000 machine identities or more per load balancer. Due to the critical nature of the services load balancers handle and the scale of machine identities they host, it’s difficult to collect intelligence or manage the lifecycle of these machine identities without automation.

Citirx ADC - formerly Netscaler - is an application delivery controller that provides flexible delivery services for traditional, containerized and microservice applications from your data center or any cloud.  Citrix and Venafi have teamed to make it easy to get started and fully automate the use of keys and certificates for load balancing operations and prevent costly outages.
