Compare Citrix Intelligent Traffic Management to the competition

Citrix Intelligent Traffic Management, based on recently-acquired Cedexis technology, stands in a class of its own. No other vendor offers authoritative DNS backed by billions of real-time measurements every day to route your traffic to the best-performing cloud, CDN or data center in real time. While some vendors have attempted to emulate our model, none have done so with all the features and measurements at web scale. If avoiding outages and increasing network performance is your goal, the only good choice is Citrix Intelligent Traffic Management.
