Citrix GoToMyPC Wins ``Best Remote Access Service'' Ultimate Choice Award from LAPTOP Magazine, Again; Fast, Easy and Secure GoToMyPC Recognized for ``Superbly Simple Interface...Installs More Easily Than a Game''.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Once again, Citrix(R) GoToMyPC(R) from Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), the global leader in access infrastructure solutions, receives LAPTOP Magazine's Ultimate Choice Award in the best remote desktop-access service category. "Browser-based and practical," GoToMyPC gives everyday users a fast, easy and secure way to access a PC from a web-browser or wireless device on-demand.

Next-generation GoToMyPC offers an even easier and faster way for professionals on-the-go to be more productive, anytime, anywhere -- at home while traveling, from across town or around the world. GoToMyPC provides the simplest way to gain secure, encrypted remote access to PC desktops from any Internet-connected computer. Dubbed, "Like Being There," the easy-to-use service offers fast performance, industry-first drag-and-drop file transfer, true 24-bit color and performance monitoring and tuning.

"Almost everything business travelers would want to do on their home PC from afar gets covered in GoToMyPC's great feature set," cited LAPTOP Magazine. "What really seals the deal is a superbly simple interface that integrates most functions on a single screen and installs more easily than a downloadable game."

"We are delighted to be recognized once again for our 'simpler is better' approach to remote desktop access that allows individuals and businesses to remain productive online and on-demand," said Brett Caine, group vice president and general manager of Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. "With a focus on delivering the best customer experience, next-generation GoToMyPC takes productivity and performance to the next level."

GoToMyPC is highly secure and fully encrypted with strong, built-in 128-bit AES end-to-end encryption standard. It can be set up and ready to go in minutes -- even by novice PC users. Citrix offers three versions of GoToMyPC to meet the needs of individual professionals, small and medium-sized businesses and large organizations. Citrix GoToMyPC Personal is for individual users who want remote access to one or more PC. Designed for workgroups and teams, Citrix GoToMyPC Pro (4-20 PCs) features centralized billing, and an Online Administration Center where managers can add, suspend and delete users and run usage reports. Citrix GoToMyPC Corporate (20 or more PCs) allows organizations to create and manage groups, control usage and feature access, establish password-enforcement rules and select additional security features such as third-party authentication.

The LAPTOP Ultimate Choice Award is just the latest in a series of accolades for GoToMyPC. The service is also the recipient of PC World Magazine's World Class Award, CNET's Editors' Choice Award, PC Magazine's Editors' Choice Award, Window's IT Pro Magazine's Readers' Choice Award and the SIIA Codie Award for Best Mobile Product.

The award appears in LAPTOP's Ultimate Mobility special issue -- the technology guide for people on the move. This annual awards issue covers the "best of the best" in mobile technology products. The full LAPTOP review of GoToMyPC 5.0 is available at
