<p>FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — 15 December 2005 — Citrix Systems, Inc., the global leader in access infrastructure solutions, today announced the general availability of the newest release of Citrix Access Suite™, a comprehensive information access solution which includes updated versions of Citrix Presentation Server™, Citrix Password Manager™ and Citrix Access Gateway™, an SSL VPN appliance. The Access Suite now includes 64-bit support for application virtualisation in Presentation Server, and Advanced Access Control which helps IT departments increase control over user action and access rights at a granular level.</p>
<p>Major innovations in the latest version of the Access Suite center on security and performance enhancements. Citrix’s Access Gateway with Advanced Access Control offers IT departments an unprecedented level of control over employee access to corporate applications, data and other network resources based on a user’s work environment, computing device, location and role in the organisation. IT departments can define exactly how employees are able to interact with resources, and automatically reconfigure settings as employees roam among diverse devices and networks.</p>
<p>With Access Suite 4.2, Citrix triples the number of users who can access virtualised applications on each server. Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 for Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 x64 Edition provides significant cost savings by offering broad support for extended 64-bit server architectures, producing huge gains in scalability, user density and overall performance compared to today’s 32-bit systems. In addition, the latest version of Presentation Server x64 is designed to offer customers a flexible migration path to smoothly transition from 32-bit to 64-bit computing environments.</p>
<p>Citrix Password Manager 4.2 extends the capabilities of the Access Suite with new features that streamline access to password controlled applications to improve enterprise security and regulatory compliance, and power superior user productivity when accessing sensitive corporate information through different applications.</p>
