MUMBAI, INDIA: Citrix Systems introduced CSA Authorized, an enhancement to the Citrix Solution Advisor (CSA) program.


CSA Authorized enables existing partners to expand their product portfolios and allows new partners to start selling Citrix products immediately with less upfront investment.

These changes enable Citrix Solution Advisors at any level the opportunity to sell Citrix Delivery Center products while working toward certification requirements.

“Now, I can generate revenue as soon as a new product is released.” stated Kennith Rindt, Director— Strategic Alliances, AEC Group, a Platinum Citrix Solution Advisor.


Prior to achieving certification, partners can earn full margins on the breadth of Citrix virtualization and application delivery products.

“By allowing Citrix Solution Advisors to sell immediately upon enrolling in our program, we are eliminating barriers and enabling them to more easily deliver virtualization from the desktop to the data center,” stated Al Monserrat, Senior VP—Sales and Services, Citrix.

Only those partners that complete certification are eligible to participate in Citrix Advisor Rewards, an industry-leading program that pays partners up to 15 percent additional margin on qualifying product sales.

Additional benefits including technical support, on-going lead generation, and enhanced visibility on are also available to certified partners. CSA Authorized will be rolled out in March.
