For Immediate Release

GNAT Box Now Available in India
The simple, powerful, and affordable firewall comes to India

Orlando, FL (September 1, 1997) -- Global Technology Associates, Inc. and DG
DataSys Services, have signed an agreement for DG DataSys to resell the GNAT Box Firewall software in the India.

This will be GTA's first entry into the Indian subcontinent, and one that company officials believe will be highly successful. According to Dr. Stephen Emerson, GTA's Vice-president for International Sales, "The Indian market contains all the key ingredients to make GNAT Box a real sought after commodity." India's high level of computer literacy, growing demand for network security products, and the requirement for highly cost-effective products make GNAT Box ideal for this market, says Emerson.

Soon to be released GNAT Box 2.0, with its new quick start configuration and improved web browser interface, is likely to be appealing to Indian customers. The introduction of user definable filters now permits Indian network administrators the ability to establish their own corporate network security rules. Support for a point-to-point (PPP) interface has been added for those organizations wishing to utilize either asynchronous modems or ISDN TAs for network connectivity. Built in support for non-standard TCP/IP applications, like RealAudio, RealVideo, Vxtreme, and StreamWorks, has also been enhanced.
