<p>Citrix Online and Sharp Notebooks Deliver the Ultimate Mobile Computing Package</p>
<p>SANTA BARBARA, Calif. ¯ 16 March 2004 ¯ On-the-go computing just became easier for mobile professionals as Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc., announced today an alliance with Sharp to make remote access to your desktop PC a breeze. Citrix® GoToMyPC®, the market-leading remote desktop-PC-access service, now comes with every Sharp ultra portable Actius MM20 notebook computer. Concurrent with today’s launch, each Actius MM20 notebook will feature a Citrix GoToMyPC icon for quick set-up and the ultimate in anywhere, anytime productivity.</p>
<p>“The initial success we had co-marketing GoToMyPC with the Sharp MM10, convinced us of the value that fast, easy and secure desktop access provides for mobile professionals,” says Greg Nakagawa, senior vice president and general manager of Sharp Systems of America. “Sharp Actius MM20 users will benefit by having real-time access to their most important files. This strategic relationship with Citrix Online underscores our dedication to delivering the most convenient and complete remote access solution for mobile computing.”</p>
<p>Designed for mobile workers who require maximum productivity in and out of the office, Actius MM-series notebooks are marketed as a companion to a user’s home or office desktop. With Citrix GoToMyPC, users can easily access all of their files and network connections, and enjoy the same desktop experience as if they were at their business or home office. They have complete data consistency since files never need to be transferred between devices or synced, thereby eliminating the worry of forgetting to bring critical information while on the road. The Sharp Actius MM20 notebook has integrated 802.11g (Wi-Fi) technology so users can access the Internet wirelessly and remain productive in a variety of mobile settings by engaging in a remote Citrix GoToMyPC session.</p>
<p>“Sharp’s selection of Citrix GoToMyPC as its remote-access partner for the new Actius MM20 underscores GoToMyPC’s value as a secure and comprehensive mobile-computing solution,” said John Greathouse, senior vice president of strategic development at Citrix Online. “We look forward to building upon our current alliance and our mutual commitment to provide mobile professionals with the best possible computing experience.”</p>
<p>Citrix GoToMyPC, the market-leading remote desktop-PC-access service, is the most secure, fast, easy and cost-effective way to access information on your PC from anywhere, and can be set up in minutes. Security is pre-configured with built-in controls, including dual password requirements and user authentication. All data transmissions are secured by 128-bit AES end-to-end encryption, which provides the most secure computing environment in a wireless setting. Since its debut in 2001, GoToMyPC has been adopted by more than a hundred thousand mobile workers worldwide, and it is consistently rated as best-in-category by media and industry experts.</p>
