<p>Citrix Emphasises Focus on Access with Launch of accessPARTNER Network</p>
<p>ORLANDO, Fla. — 14 January, 2004 — At its annual global partner conference, Citrix Solutions Summit 2004, Citrix Systems, Inc. introduced the Citrix accessPARTNER network – the umbrella name for its entire global network of partners.</p>
<p>The new logo developed for the more than 7,000 partners in the network includes the Citrix Access Button, which the company introduced last year as part of a major branding campaign to build demand and awareness for Citrix as the leading provider of access infrastructure for the on-demand enterprise. With one name and one logo, the Citrix partner community further reinforces Citrix as the only brand 100 percent focused on access.</p>
<p>The Citrix accessPARTNER network is aimed at unifying a strong ecosystem of solution advisors, educators and alliance partners to meet specific customer needs in developing and executing an access strategy.</p>
<p>The Citrix accessPARTNER network simplifies and unifies the previous classifications of Citrix partners and makes it easier for customers to engage the right Citrix partner by categorising them by their role. Citrix partners belong to one of three categories: Citrix Solution Advisors, Citrix Alliance Partners, or Citrix Certified Professionals and Education Providers.</p>
<p>Citrix Solution Advisors are the approximately 5,000 channel partners previously in the CSN that deliver innovative and strategic access infrastructure solutions to joint customers. Citrix Solution Advisors include value-added resellers and distributors, system integrators and government advisors that provide a range of services from strategic planning and consulting to product delivery and support.</p>
<p>Citrix Alliance Partners are the nearly 1,500 partners previously in the Citrix Business Alliance™ (CBA) that offer software, hardware and services. These partners add value to Citrix solutions with products or services that are compatible or integrate with Citrix technology as part of a comprehensive access infrastructure solution for the on-demand enterprise.</p>
<p>Citrix Certified Professionals and Education Partners are the nearly 1,000 partners that have in-depth product knowledge and skills, which they continually expand and update, to meet the needs of enterprise customers. Citrix Authorised Learning Centres™ (CALCs) and Citrix Certified Instructors™ provide approved educational courses and testing to professionals looking to become certified in any of Citrix’s three technical certifications – Citrix Certified Administrator™, Citrix Certified Enterprise Administrator™ and Citrix Certified Integration Architect™ – or Citrix’s sales certification, the Citrix Certified Sales Professional™.</p>
