(Nasdaq:CTXS), a global leader in application serving and portal software and services, today announced enhancements to the Citrix® MetaFrame® for UNIX® product family to further extend the virtual workplace. These new features extend the performance, usability and security of MetaFrame 1.1 for UNIX Operating Systems, providing users secure access to UNIX applications from virtually any device, over any connection - wired, wireless or Web. Citrix MetaFrame for UNIX, Feature Release 1 includes an array of new features that help deliver flexible access to UNIX and Java technology-based applications, along with enterprise-class management tools. * Support for enhanced colour depth for truer colours and virtually unlimited screen resolutions enables users to run rich, high-resolution applications with the look and feel of a local desktop. * SSL Encryption brings added security to Citrix MetaFrame administrators and users by passing content through a company's firewall using the HTTPS port and leveraging the inherent 128-bit encryption of Internet-standard SSL technology. * Support for Citrix NFuse 1.6 application portal software is provided by Feature Release 1, enabling organisations to personalise applications and associated content, and publish them into a single portal view without application rewrites. Citrix NFuse allows the Web to be utilised as an application infrastructure while retaining the features and benefits of MetaFrame application serving software.

This reduces bandwidth consumption on the network and makes it easier for users to connect to MetaFrame for UNIX servers over the Internet. * Persistent Bitmap Caching improves application performance by speeding the display of frequently occurring bitmap images and storing such images on the client hard drive. * With client drive mapping, users can easily transfer UNIX files to and from their hard disk or floppy disk drives. * Multiple-monitor support provides flexibility to access multiple, simultaneous applications or span a single application across multiple monitors. * International Dialogs are now provided whereby German, French and Spanish users can now receive informational messages in their language of choice.
