Leading Danish Insurance Company to Provide Employees with Mobile Computing
Solution Based on Citrix NFuse(tm) Application Portal Technology


Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS) today announced that Tryg-Baltica, a
leading Danish insurance house and part of the Nordea Group, has selected
Citrix® MetaFrame(tm) application server computing software to enable
wireless and Web application access across the organisation. The deal,
implemented in conjunction with Compaq Denmark and part of an agreement with
Unibank A/S, will enable 2,100 Tryg-Baltica employees in 80 branch offices
across the country to instantly access the company's business-critical
applications, including Siebel CRM, through an application portal based on
Citrix NFuse(tm) application portal software. This will provide users
throughout Tryg-Baltica with mobile and flexible Internet information
access, whilst providing the organisation with a means to reduce network and
administration costs.


Tryg-Baltica required a system that would enable Siebel CRM and Microsoft®
Office, as well as documentation, 3270 Mainframe applications and a number
of in-house insurance suites to interact with each other, whilst providing
the employees with a flexible and efficient application workspace. Using
laptop computers equipped with Nokia Phone Card II, approximately 600 of
Tryg-Baltica's insurance consultants in the field will now be able to access
the company's applications over wireless connections, allowing them to seal
contracts and process claims in much shorter timeframes. As all
applications are integrated in a portal, Tryg-Baltica's distance workers
will be able to benefit from the same functionality and flexibility in its
corporate network as its office-based workers, regardless of geographic
location or available bandwidth.


"We chose Citrix MetaFrame and NFuse because the benefits to the users
throughout the country were mirrored by advantages that the IT staff in
Copenhagen could enjoy," commented Torben Petersen, Development Director at
Tryg-Baltica. "Not only can we support our users throughout Denmark from
one location, but the scalability of the architecture will enable us to add
any number of users, without having to physically touch their machines. We
are in a win-win situation, as we can provide a uniform level of service
across the board, and the users have a set of feature-rich applications,
regardless of where they are in the world."


Using MetaFrame and NFuse, Tryg-Baltica is able to deploy all of its
business critical applications to any number of users across Denmark,
regardless of the client device being used. This will allow them to quickly
and easily incorporate both additional users and applications into the
network, without having to physically touch any of the client devices. In
addition, Tryg-Baltica can quickly and effectively support all of its users,
wherever in the world they might be, from headquarters in Copenhagen thanks
to the shadowing capabilities of Citrix MetaFrame. By deploying Citrix's
suite of advanced management products - Load Balancing, Resource Management
and Installation Management Services - the company will also be able to
optimise the predictability, manageability and performance of the entire
network.


"Tryg-Baltica is one of the growing number of organisations using NFuse to
deploy mission critical applications through the web over wireless
connections," stated Klaus Østermann, Director, Citrix Systems Nordic. "The
company will be able to increase user productivity by extending the reach of
their business critical applications, whilst reducing costs associated with
application deployment and user support, as well as network administration
and maintenance."
