Citrix agreed to acquire privately-held Net6, a developer of secure access gateways, for approximately $50 million in cash.

Net6, which is based in San Jose, California, offers an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Access Gateway and an Application Gateway with a Voice Office Suite. The Application Gateway delivers applications to users of IP telephones from leading IP PBX vendors including Avaya, Cisco, Mitel, NEC, Nortel Networks and Siemens.
