One-button, User-Driven Recovery Decreases IT Support Costs, Preserves Business Continuity

London, UK , 20 February 2006 – Phoenix Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:PTEC) today announced Recover Pro™ 6, a recovery application that enables full PC restoration in minutes – with no IT intervention, network connection or use of external recovery media. Recover Pro 6 is available immediately at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of £29.99.

The Recover Pro application solves a growing problem faced by home and business users today: how to ensure desktop and mobile PCs can recover quickly from worms, viruses and other malware attacks or system crashes. Complementary to existing perimeter defence applications, the Recover Pro application increases the effectiveness of traditional endpoint security applications such as anti-virus and firewall software.

With a few mouse clicks, even non-technical end users can selectively restore a deleted file, recover a previous version of a file, or completely restore the hard drive to a pre-crash working state, including operating system, applications, user settings and data files.

Fast, Easy, One-Button Recovery Access
Recover Pro is a self-contained application that resides in a protected part of the hard drive. Recovery data is stored in a safe, hidden partition on the hard drive and is not vulnerable to attacks on the operating system. Recover Pro is more secure and significantly easier to implement than traditional imaging and backup and recovery products. Users may select space-efficient, quick backup restore points, file-level backup, or complete system backup, then Recover Pro works automatically in the background. After an attack or other crash event, users are guided by an easy GUI interface that requires just a few keystrokes to restore the PC to a pre-crash condition. Or, if Windows won’t boot, users can access the recovery process simply by pressing the F4 hot key upon startup. Since recovery data is self-contained on the user’s hard drive, it is isolated and secured from all threats – including viruses that commonly infect the operating system. Files can be recovered selective
ly and instantaneously, and full recovery takes place in minutes – without the need for a network connection, external recovery media such as CDs or DVDs, or IT intervention.

With Recover Pro, enterprise IT support costs are minimised, system downtime is reduced to minutes, employees quickly resume productivity and business continuity is assured through continuous data protection.

Phoenix Recover Pro 6 software is available immediately and includes instant recovery of deleted or overwritten files; a new user interface that is easy to access and implement, even for non-technical users; hardware RAID support; and data backup to network/USB drives and internal drives. Designed for Windows XP and Windows 2000 (service pack 3 or greater) environments, Recover Pro 6 runs on Pentium III or greater microprocessors. Information on pricing, availability and support options for Recover Pro software can be obtained through Phoenix or one of its global authorised distributors.
