Purpose-built for Macs with the Reliability and Ease of Use Mac Users Expect

Chalfont – January 14, 2010 – For the first time, Mac users can now host the market-leading remote access service on either a Mac or a PC, with Citrix Online’s newest version of GoToMyPC®.  The company, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS), has responded with version 7.0 to better accommodate Mac users seeking a reliable, easy to use remote-access product that is purpose-built for the Mac.

Mac and PC users alike can at last work remotely with confidence from any computer with Internet access and easily access their Mac or PC files, computer programs, email and company network.

“With this new release, we’re giving Mac users what they’ve been asking for – a reliable remote access service built specifically for the Mac,” said Brett Caine, general manager of Citrix Online. “For the large and growing Mac community, they can rest assured of finally having a remote access service that works as advertised from the most trusted name in the category.”

According to IDC, which cited Citrix Online as the revenue leader for worldwide remote access services software, with over 70% share of market[1], the Mac offering is a significant move: “Customers value Citrix's remote access services software GoToMyPC for its capabilities, reliability and ease of use,” says Sean Ryan, senior analyst, mobile enterprise software at IDC. “With market projections for the Mac and remote access services to grow, GoToMyPC is well positioned in the market.”

For Citrix Online customers, the extension of GoToMyPC to the Mac means universal access to remote machines, whether running Windows or Mac OS.  And Mac support puts complete remote access services in the hands of customers from a greater variety of businesses—opening the door to creative new ways to use remote access

“I’ve been a satisfied GoToMyPC user for several years,” said Benjamin Mahler, a practicing attorney. “The service gives me the flexibility to work from either of my two offices by remotely accessing resources on the other computer. When I was considering purchasing a new Mac, it hadn't occurred to me that I might have to give up GoToMyPC and, if it had, I would have had to make a very tough decision. But fortunately, Citrix Online came out with the Mac version. I love my Mac and I love the new GoToMyPC for Mac.”
