Neoware Inc. To Market Citrix ICA Client As Part Of Competitive Initiative To Drive Evolution Of Thin Client Computing


Neoware, Inc. (Nasdaq:NWRE), a leading provider of thin client computing solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Citrix ICA client, version 10, for users of Neoware thin client devices using the Microsoft(r) Windows(r) XPe operating system. The announcement, which supports a broader Neoware initiative to drive the evolution of thin client computing, gives Neoware users access to Citrix’s most advanced and feature-rich Independent Computing Architecture (ICA). The Citrix ICA 10 client from Neoware is available for download to Neoware ezRemote Manager immediately.

With this announcement, Neoware is the first leading thin client provider to offer availability of Citrix ICA 10, giving its customers the fastest access to this technology. Recently released by Citrix Systems, Inc., ICA 10 includes compatibility with the Citrix streaming product, Citrix Streaming Client (formerly known as Citrix Tarpon). ICA 10 is also optimized to run with Citrix Presentation Server 4.5.

With this announcement Neoware is delivering on this promise and is again illustrating its commitment to leading the thin client computing evolution.”

Citrix ICA client 10 also includes a new security feature, Trusted Server Configuration, which is designed to identify and enforce trust relations involved in client connections.
