WEBWIRE

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- Dec. 20, 2004 -- Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), and ViewSonic(R) Corp., a worldwide leader in visual display products, have formed an alliance to offer the ultimate in wireless mobile computing. Beginning now, ViewSonic is offering a 60-day free trial of Citrix(R) GoToMyPC(R) with every ViewSonic airsync(TM) V210 wireless display. The added service enables users to easily and securely access the full contents of their desktop PC on the V210, without the small screen limitations of traditional handheld wireless devices.

Weighing only three pounds, the V210 is a Windows(R) CE device with a 10-inch screen, a 400 MHz Intel XScale(TM) processor and 802.11b technology for wireless connectivity. Citrix GoToMyPC is the market leading Web-based remote desktop access service. Its PocketView(TM) feature gives users access to all their files, programs, remote e-mail and applications from any Windows CE device.

“Teaming ViewSonic’s V210 wireless display with Citrix’s GoToMyPC brings mobile users a safe, cost-effective and lightweight solution for boosting their productivity on the road, at home, or anywhere with Web access,” says Dan Coffman, senior product manager for ViewSonic.

Always-on, anytime computing solutions such as the V210 and Citrix GoToMyPC liberates professionals in any industry from the confines of their office PC. For example, manufacturing workers can carry the ViewSonic display through the warehouse and healthcare workers or physicians can take it to their patients’ bedsides to keep reports and other data at hand.

“This alliance that joins two market leaders in wireless access will extend these benefits to mobile professionals across a variety of industries,” says Bernardo de Albergaria, vice president of eCommerce and marketing for Citrix Online. “The combination of Citrix GoToMyPC’s remote PC control and ViewSonic’s V210 lightweight wireless display provides a powerful utility for fast, easy and secure wireless access to important information, anywhere at anytime.”

Unlike other remote access solutions, Citrix GoToMyPC provides pre-configured, fully-encrypted, end-to-end 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard screen-sharing technology. This end-to-end authentication and encryption protects against the threat of a listener-in-the-middle intruder, a critical requirement for security-conscious organizations such as government agencies, financial and healthcare institutions, among others.

Users can continue to take advantage of Citrix GoToMyPC remote desktop access after the 60-day free trial for $19.95 per month. A shorter, 30-day free trial of the mobility package with Citrix GoToMyPC is also available now through the ViewSonic Web site at http://www.viewsonic.com .
