TOKYO -- April 10, 2014

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the data, cloud and international
communications business within NTT (NYSE: NTT), today announced the
U.S.-market launch of Enterprise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, a virtual
desktop service providing enterprise users with cloud-based access to office
desktop environments from anyplace at any time for enhanced global
productivity and security.

Supported by servers and other infrastructure newly built in the United
States, Enterprise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure helps globally active
enterprises to protect information, standardize IT governance and integrate
desktop environments with standardized cloud infrastructure rather than having
to build desktop environments in each country. PC environments in overseas
locations can now be constructed and managed from within the United States on
an integrated basis.

Enterprise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is linked to Arcstar Universal One,
NTT Com’s global network service for enterprises, to provide fast, free
connection to cloud infrastructure. A convenient customer portal simplifies
the addition of new accounts and creation of operating system images. Virtual
desktops can be used as much and as often as needed. For service costs, please
see the attachment.

The service incorporates XenDesktop by Citrix Systems, so screen transfers do
not leave data in the user’s device, meaning that employees can use PCs,
tablets and other devices safely and as required, depending on their location
and nature of business. Internet access to the service assures wide
availability for seamless use of virtual devices regardless of location.

Going forward, NTT Com plans to launch Enterprise Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure platforms in other markets, including Europe and ex-Japan Asia,
as well as enhance the customer portal with added functionality.

“Citrix is developing leading desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) provider programs
and new technologies that partners use to differentiate their businesses,”
said Mitch Parker, Vice President and General Manager, Citrix Cloud Services,
Citrix Systems Inc. “Incorporation of XenDesktop in NTT Com’s Enterprise
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure will enable U.S. companies to better satisfy
their global computing needs. The combination of industry-leading desktop
virtualization technology with U.S.-based cloud service platforms will ensure
that customers worldwide can use desktop virtual environments safely on a
highly flexible and expandable service platform.”

“Citrix Systems Japan welcomes NTT Com’s launch of Enterprise Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure in the U.S. market, following its Japan launch in 2012,” said
Michael King, President & CEO, Citrix Systems Japan KK. “With Citrix®
XenDesktop® as one of its core components, Enterprise Virtual Desktop
Infrastructure enhances the productivity of global employees and expands the
choices for cloud-based desktop virtualization services amid growing interest
in DaaS.”
