Customers benefit from the most secure and reliable collaboration platform in the industry

WALTHAM, Mass. | August 15, 2005

Novell today announced that Novell® GroupWise® 7 is now available worldwide. Novell GroupWise is the most secure and reliable collaboration platform in the industry and runs on multiple operating system platforms. GroupWise 7 delivers significant advances to increase end-user productivity such as integrated e-mail and instant messaging, enhanced Microsoft* Outlook* support and a pre-bundled license of SUSETM Linux Enterprise Server. As a result, customers benefit from reduced costs and increased productivity as GroupWise 7 manages mission-critical collaboration functions.

Organizations around the world are deploying Novell GroupWise to provide immediate benefit to their businesses. “Novell has provided us with a clear path to the future with GroupWise 7,” said Roger Fenner, infrastructure services manager for Comair, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines. “It maintains the reliability and security we've come to expect and rely upon from Novell and GroupWise, while adding features that allow us to offer greater flexibility and capability to our user community. We've been waiting for the amazing features and broad-based support that only GroupWise 7 offers.”

Fred Candelaria, supervisor of WAN Engineering for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, said, “GroupWise has been a key component of our enterprise for some time, providing a high level of corporate security that has protected us against vulnerabilities and attacks. Now GroupWise 7 security enhancements give us more options for configuring how we protect our collaboration system. GroupWise 7 will enable us to keep our users connected regardless of location, device or platform, while maintaining a very low total cost of ownership.”

“The new features in GroupWise 7 combined with the migration tools and incentives we are offering make it the ideal collaboration platform,” said David Patrick, vice president and general manager of Linux, Open Source Platforms and Services for Novell. “Customers are often afraid to disrupt their day-to-day business to make a change, but GroupWise 7 makes migration from Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes* extremely easy, technically and financially.”
