BOSaNOVA to Deploy CA’s eTrust Antivirus for Microsoft Windows EX Embedded on BOSaNOVA XPe Thin Clients

Miami, FL (Common Expo) - September 17, 2006 — BOSaNOVA announced today an agreement with CA, Inc. (NYSE: CA) to deploy CA's eTrust Antivirus for Microsoft Windows XP Embedded on BOSaNOVA XPe Thin Clients. eTrust Antivirus for Windows XP Embedded is the industry's first virus protection solution designed exclusively for the componentized version of Microsoft's Windows XP Embedded operating system.

One of the main benefits of deploying thin clients is the increased security that they provide. Although virus risk is small, antivirus software is essential for ensuring that thin-client environments are effectively protected.

"BOSaNOVA prides itself on high-quality solutions, service and support. As part of this commitment to our customers, we take the time to evaluate and research every component that is included in our award-winning thin clients and that is why we chose to include CA's eTrust Antivirus software in our XPe Thin Clients," explains BOSaNOVA President, Martin Pladgeman. "Thin clients don't require the same virus protection as a PC, therefore it is important that the antivirus software included should be the right fit for the environment.

"With a minimal footprint starting at under 6 MB, eTrust Antivirus for Windows XP Embedded is ideally designed for thin client environments. It provides device designers, manufacturers, distributors and integrators with maximum protection against viruses and a variety of other network-based threats.

"BOSaNOVA's selection of eTrust Antivirus once again underscores the unmatched breadth and technical superiority of CA's security solutions portfolio," said Sam Curry, vice president of security management at CA. "With the inclusion of eTrust Antivirus, BOSaNOVA customers can rest easy knowing that they can enjoy all the benefits of thin-client computing without increasing the potential exposure of their IT environment to viruses and other malware."

BOSaNOVA XPe Thin Clients are available worldwide through Authorized Resellers. For sales information contact BOSaNOVA, Inc. toll-free at (866) 865-5250, or send e-mail to:
