Case study ////////////////// Gas company securely connects locations, partners and ships with Citrix With the world’s largest fleet of vessels for transporting liquid natural gas demanding secure and reliable data communications, Nakilat turned to Citrix to provide secure virtualisation and streamline IT operations through Citrix NetScaler. The enterprise, which is also known as the Qatar Gas Transport Company and operates what has been described as a ‘floating pipeline’ carrying Qatari gas around the world, adopted the company’s solutions to establish secure access to information from anywhere around the globe.
