    Citrix Access Suite 4.0 Offers Major Advancements

    Today April 26, 2005, Citrix announced the launch of Citrix® Access Suite 4.0, an integrated business access solution that enables on-demand access to any information resource, for any authorized user, with any device, over any network connection, while reducing operating expenses, improving information security, and increasing business agility. Access Suite 4.0 includes the flagship Citrix Presentation Server™ 4.0, Citrix Password Manager™ 4.0 and the new Citrix Access Gateway™ 4.0, a universal SSL VPN solution for both data and voice applications.

    With this launch, the company also introduces Citrix SmartAccess technology, a sense-and-respond capability that delivers constantly optimized access for users while rigorously protecting the security of corporate information. SmartAccess instantly senses and dynamically responds to different work scenarios with tailored access and security controls. The Citrix Access Suite 4.0 is designed for enterprises of all sizes and is the foundation of the Citrix Access Platform.

    Citrix Access Suite 4.0 is available for purchase in the second quarter of 2005 under the Easy, Open and Flex licensing models. Prices include Citrix Subscription Advantage™, which offers automatic, priority access to the latest product upgrades and enhancements. Product information on the Citrix Access Suite 4.0 is available here.

    Citrix and HP Deliver Identity and Access Solutions

    Citrix is pleased to inform our Alliance Partners of a new integration agreement with HP focused on key identity management solutions. Citrix Password Manager will be combined with the HP OpenView Identity and Access Management suite to create a comprehensive Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, which will enable enterprises to provide complete, secure information access to employees, customers and partners worldwide. The two companies have also committed to a joint development roadmap on future products, and Citrix Password Manager was selected by HP as its preferred enterprise single sign-on (ESSO) solution for its OpenView customers.

    Tighter integration between Citrix Password Manager and market-leading identity and access management application vendors, like HP, is a fundamental tenet of Citrix’s partner strategy, and builds on recent channel momentum with the VeriSign and Secure Computing endorsements of Citrix Password Manager. One example of the current integration between Citrix Password Manager and the HP OpenView Identity and Access Management suite is the ability for Citrix Password Manager events to be sent to the Audit Server functionality of HP’s Select Access product. This common audit capability helps customers track user access to any application as well as all password updates – both key requirements of regulatory compliance.

    “As businesses change the way they protect sensitive data, Citrix and HP are together targeting identity management as a major area of demand for enterprises, especially with the onset of new legislation that enforces specific user access controls,” said David Jones, senior vice president, corporate development, for Citrix. “The Citrix and HP Identity and Access Management solution goes beyond broad defensive measures, helping businesses comply with legislation by providing auditable access trails, automatic and secure password changes and granular access controls for even outside partners who access internal resources.”

    This agreement is the latest between in the long-standing strategic relationship between Citrix and HP. To learn more about this announcement, please visit the press release available in the news section of the Citrix website.
