<p>Sydney, 14 October, 2003 — Citrix Systems, Inc., a global leader in access infrastructure solutions, today announced the release of a new portlet that provides integration with IBM WebSphere Portal®, giving joint customers secure, easy and instant access - on demand - from their WebSphere Portal environment to heterogeneous applications and information resources centrally managed by Citrix® MetaFrame® Presentation Server.
