Neoware Delivers Thin Client Computing Solution for Healthcare Industry


Superior Security, Lower Total Cost of Ownership, and Improved Management Provide Greater Flexibility and Enhanced Reliability for Healthcare Organizations

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Nov. 2, 2006 -- As healthcare organizations seek to accelerate the adoption of better technologies, they are faced with three key concerns: security, management, and cost. Tackling these issues and more, Neoware, Inc. (Nasdaq:NWRE), the leading supplier of thin client software and devices, has joined with leading technology vendors in the healthcare industry to offer comprehensive computing solutions for the healthcare industry.

Delivering enhanced security, manageability, and reliability, at a lower total cost of ownership as compared to PC-based solutions, Neoware's customized offerings enable healthcare organizations to simultaneously reduce risks and increase efficiencies. Neoware's thin client offerings operate within a server-based architecture network, allowing desktop and mobile devices to be centrally managed -- reducing expense even as they sustain greater levels of data security.

"The healthcare industry's need for specialized computing solutions is particularly acute," said Klaus Besier, President and CEO of Neoware. "It has unique requirements for highly flexible and mobile computing resources, and operates under appropriately rigorous data-security regulations given the especially sensitive nature of the data it handles."

To enable a swift rollout of Neoware's healthcare solution, Cindi Jones has been named alliance manager for Neoware's healthcare initiatives. Ms. Jones is responsible for establishing and maintaining key relationships with healthcare industry solution vendors and technology partners. Ms. Jones has deep expertise in server-based computing solutions for the healthcare industry, including several years in alliance management roles with Citrix, plus work with RTO Software and Appsense, Ltd.

Neoware's diverse array of flexible thin client products are inherently more secure than PC-based devices, and the company's healthcare offerings combine its robust thin client solutions with a range of mobility and access systems from industry leaders.

The Neoware solutions include an array of compatible offerings from these industry leaders:

o ActivIdentity, which works with healthcare organizations to deliver the proof of identity services needed for the privacy of medical data and rapid access to patient resources, including Smart Cards.
o Ensure Technologies' XyLoc(tm) active proximity access solution recognizes the authorized user as they approach the PC, and protects the data when it is most vulnerable -- after logon, whenever the user steps away.
o Ergotron, the leading provider of specialty mounting solutions, manufactures arms and carts that put technology within reach, save space, and provide ergonomic adjustability while increasing efficiency throughout every department in healthcare facilities.
o Gemalto, a worldwide leader in digital security solutions, provides secure and convenient services and platforms, including smart cards, to healthcare organizations, for secure logon and access. This ensures patient privacy and healthcare staff productivity.
o NetMaker, which offers simple and secure smart card-based solutions to companies who wish to replace the use of password logins on their network.
