Any NetScaler appliance with system software version 8.1 or later automatically provides protection against SYN DoS attacks. It defends against SYN flood attacks by using SYN cookies instead of maintaining half-open connections on the system memory stack
Can also check surge protection and sure connect..

Significantly you should check on DoS primarily HTTP based..below shows the policy and configuration steps (see side bars for the various sections)

Other, NetScaler also protects network resources from ICMP based attacks by using ICMP rate limiting and aggressive ICMP packet inspection. It performs IP reassembly, drops a variety of suspicious and malformed packets, and applies Access Control Lists (ACLs) to site traffic for further protection.

I know that but as far as i know
for ex. if i push all my network to the netscaler
netscaler will only protect the added ip addresses and ports to the load balancing services ,
is that correct or does it act like ids and protect all network ?

I dont recall specific ip needed to be added unless you are blocking specific based on access control list approach, even doing rate limiting just specify that it is based on client source ip but not that you needed to state ipaddress.

It is definitely not going to act as ids or should replace your ids. It is still just an application delivery controller with the layer7 visibility. However with application firewall added in, it will have signature from Sourcefire (snort)

See the article summarising it available defences
