Web and security software distributor Unipalm is supporting the
initiative by leading network security software vendor, Data Fellows,
which is offering a free anti-virus software licence swap to customers
of Dr Solomon's anti-virus products.

Unipalm claims the offer will benefit those corporate customers of Dr
Solomon's who are facing an uncertain transition period following the
acquisition of Dr Solomon's by Network Associates Inc. This acquisition
means that Data Fellows is now the only remaining independent anti-virus
software vendor.

Data Fellows has offered Dr Solomon's customers free migration to the
equivalent F-Secure Anti-Virus product and pledged to honour the
remaining licence period up to a maximum of 12 months or until 15 June
1999. And the company has already implemented a conversion tool to
enable the smooth removal of the existing software, and implementation
of Data Fellows F-Secure Anti-Virus client or server products.

F-Secure Anti-Virus is the first anti-virus software to combine multiple
virus scanning engines within a single framework. It uses
CounterSign(tm) technology to enable multiple anti-virus products to
work within the same software framework. The idea is that what one virus
scanner might miss, another will find. The F-Secure Anti-Virus family of
products ships with two award-winning scanning engines - F-PROT and AVP.

Jason Holloway, product manager for security products at Unipalm, said:
"We believe this move will definitely strengthen Data Fellows' position
as the European leader in security software. The market requires
alternatives, and currently Data Fellows is the only company in the
world that can more than match Network Associates' product offering in
the core component areas of corporate malicious code detection, file
encryption and network encryption products."

In addition, Data Fellows' offer includes the following incentives:

- Unlimited home use of F-Secure Anti-Virus for employees of
corporate licence holders.
- Unlimited licence for F-Secure Anti-Virus Macro Control.
- Multi-engined anti-virus protection using Data Fellows
CounterSign technology
- Global support with daily updates through authorised support,
training and distribution network covering more than 80 countries.

For full details of the Data Fellows licence swap and upgrade, Dr
Solomon's customers should contact Unipalm on 01638 569600.
