Compugen, a Canadian Leader in Virtualization Solutions, Becomes a Citrix Authorized Learning Centre

TORONTO, ONTARIO and OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 27, 2008) - Compugen today announced that it has become a Citrix Authorized Learning Centre (CALC). The announcement was made by Michael Charter, Vice President, Software.

"We believe that being an authorized training partner will provide a key value add for our VirtualONE customers," said Mr. Charter. "Training of end users on the products we sell provides an additional value as part of a complete solution to our customers and is a natural evolution of our already significant capabilities in helping them implement Citrix technology."

VirtualONE is Compugen's umbrella term for its virtualization offerings, which include consulting and business solutions involving all of the major virtualization manufacturers.

Becoming a Citrix Authorized Learning Centre is a first step in the direction of a broader training offering from Compugen, which currently offers multiple training options through qualified third-party organizations. While the relationship with third-party training organizations will continue, said Mr. Charter, there are many advantages to our customers in having Compugen provide some of these services directly as well.

In order to become a Citrix Authorized Learning Centre, Compugen made significant investments in regional training facilities and in recruiting qualified trainers. Compugen has a major presence in Canada as a Citrix Platinum Partner in Vancouver, British Columbia and Richmond Hill, Ontario.

Initially, Compugen will provide training at its Richmond Hill and Ottawa branches, with offerings in the following Citrix technologies during July and August 2008: Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 Administration (CTX-1259AI); Citrix Access Gateway 4.5 Advanced Administration (CTX-1308AI).
