 Award-Winning Remote Access Product Now Available and Supported in Japanese

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- May 7, 2013

Citrix today announced it is offering its market-leading, cloud-based remote
access product, Citrix GoToMyPC®, to customers in Japan through partnerships
with KDDI Corporation and Ascentech K.K. These partners will deliver GoToMyPC
both as a standalone solution and as an integrated service offering, giving
their customers a simple, reliable and secure solution to access files,
programs, email and networks on their Mac or PC from any web browser, iOS or
Android tablet or smartphone. Each partner will also provide customer support
in Japanese.

Tools that support new mobile workstyles are increasingly important as
companies look for ways to improve mobility, business continuity and
productivity while reducing costs. Recent research has shown that 77 percent
of Japanese smartphone users access web-based and mobile apps daily,
emphasizing the reliance on mobile devices to access and get work done on the
go. According to a study by the Bank of Japan, 97 percent of those surveyed
had reviewed their business continuity plans following the March 2011
megaquake and tsunami and 70 percent reported “some inadequacies remain” with
their current plans.

“Whether you’re home working after hours, commuting or traveling on business,
it is more important than ever for global employees to have secure access to
their files and programs, wherever they are,” said Mike Musson, vice president
of strategy and business development for the Online Services Division at
Citrix. “We’re pleased to partner with KDDI and Ascentech, two leading
business solution providers, so that more companies can benefit from the
workforce flexibility and productivity GoToMyPC can offer.”

As Japan’s second largest telecommunications carrier, KDDI Corporation has a
proven track record in Japan and a longstanding reputation for quality and
reliability, offering both mobile and fixed-line services.

According to KDDI’s Product Planning Division, “Business continuity and
increased productivity are key to the success of Japan’s workforce. Through
KDDI’s partnership with Citrix, the company can now offer its customers a fast
and secure solution in GoToMyPC that gives users the flexibility to access
their important files and programs on their Mac or PC from their tablet,
smartphone, or laptop, anywhere in the world.”

Ascentech K.K. is a major distributor of leading edge technologies in Japan.
The company is also a Citrix distributor in Japan and has extensive experience
providing business productivity solutions to the Japanese market.

“We are looking forward to providing GoToMyPC to the Japanese market and
extending its benefits to customers,” said Mr. Naohiro Sato, CEO, Ascentech
K.K. “With its market leadership and reputation for delivering security levels
that meet the highest banking and financial industry requirements, GoToMyPC
provides a valuable, affordable and easily adoptable cloud-based remote access
solution. The product also enables maximum business flexibility through its
simple-to-use design and mobile features. We’re ready to support the needs of
new GoToMyPC Japanese customers.”

GoToMyPC Offers Customers Secure Anywhere Access

GoToMyPC is the market leading cloud-based remote access product that allows
users to securely access their Mac or PC from any web browser – whether that’s
from another PC or mobile iOS or Android device – ensuring users never need to
go without files, programs or email. The advent of GoToMyPC created the remote
access market more than 10 years ago, and the product’s simplicity,
reliability and convenience constantly renders high customer loyalty and
ratings. In addition, the remote access product has won many industry awards
and high rankings by industry watchers: the mobile app was recognized as one
of the 100 Best iPad Apps by PC Magazine and IDC has consecutively named
GoToMyPC as the market leader among remote access solutions for the past five
years.
