Ceedo Announces Ceedo Enterprise™ for Citrix XenApp™, a Solution That Enables Instant Access to Citrix Applications From Any PC Without Installation

Ceedo Virtualizes and Packages the Citrix XenApp Client on Ceedo Enterprise, Making It Easy for Users of Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructure Solutions to Access Their Applications

ROSH-HAAYIN, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Ceedo™, a leading provider of application virtualization solutions and new Citrix Ready™ Program member, today announced the availability of Ceedo Enterprise™ for Citrix® XenApp™, a solution that will give customers using XenApp (formerly Citrix Presentation Server™) portable and secure access from any PC without the need to install client software and without requiring administrative rights. Compatibility of the XenApp Plugin for hosted applications with Ceedo's application virtualization technology has been demonstrated through a rigorous testing program established by Citrix.

Ceedo Enterprise enables organizations to create customized virtual workspaces, comprising of standard Windows applications, and run them without installation or requiring administration rights on any Windows PC. Ceedo workspaces can be placed and run from a webpage, a folder on a PC, a network drive or a portable storage device. The virtual workspaces can also be controlled and managed through a comprehensive remote management system.

Through this relationship, IT administrators can use Ceedo to launch XenApp directly from a webpage, instantly allowing a user to access applications from any PC. Alternatively, users can carry the XenApp plugin through Ceedo Enterprise on a portable storage device, plug it into any PC, and enjoy immediate access to their applications securely without installing any software on the host PC, and without requiring administrative rights. This enables XenApp users to be productive anywhere -- even on locked-down PCs in an Internet Café, hotel business center, etc.

"Ceedo's unique approach to application virtualization allows IT administrators to streamline Citrix deployments, and offer more flexibility to employees," said Opher Dubrovsky, VP Marketing and Business Development at Ceedo. "As a result, availability of Citrix environments becomes simpler and is possible in any location without installation issues."

In addition to using the XenApp Plugin, users can install their personal client applications to the workspace (such as WinAmp, Skype, FireFox, etc.), which will be available to them alongside XenApp on any PC.
