Command AntiVirus v4.0 offers multi-platform support in one box

Latest version features new name, new look; still sets the industry standard for support

1/23, 1998

Jupiter, FL -- Command Software Systems, Inc. today announced it will combine three client platform versions of it's popular anti-virus software into one package under a new name Command AntiVirus v4.0�. The new version, which was formerly called Command's F-PROT Professional�, will also be introduced in a new box design. Command AntiVirus will still feature the award winning F-PROT engine which has long been known for superior speed, virus detection and disinfection.

According to Dyan Dyer, CEO of Command Software Systems, Inc., "The new name better reflects what our award winning product does and what the public calls it. Command AntiVirus still incorporates the F-PROT engine but the new name, look and multi-platform versions better support our growing Reseller channel. We have found that over the past years corporate security managers have come to rely on Command as the enterprise standard in fast, efficient security software and support -- now we would like Resellers to do the same.� To streamline the product�s identity, Command AntiVirus now bundles comprehensive virus protection for Windows 95, Windows NT, NetWare, Windows 3.1, and DOS on one CD thus reducing the number of SKU's for Resellers and making site-licenses easier for Command�s corporate customers.

Command Anti Virus 4.0 answers the demand for cost-effective, easy-to-use anti-virus solution that can be installed on multi-platform networks. Command has enhanced many current features to offer the fastest on-access protection of all possible entry points for viruses, including Internet, floppy disks, e-mail attachments, and local and wide area networks. Command will continue to offer the most comprehensive support policies in the industry with no-charge toll free 24-hour Command Care support for the first 90 days. With v4.0 Command will now also offer a new full one-year Command Care option available through VARs. All levels of support include a full year of free virus signature updates.

According to one Beta tester, "Command AntiVirus v4.0 with the F-PROT Professional engine, continues to excel at providing detection and repair of Excel and Word Macro Viruses and in-the-wild viruses. Command is also unbeatable at protecting against unknown viruses via their cutting-edge heuristic technology which can analyze programs, detect unknown or new viruses, and enable the user to repair the infected file immediately."

Command AntiVirus solutions provide users with multi-layered protection from the threat of computer viruses, employing the industry-leading virus detection and removal technology of the Command F-PROT engine. This ICSA- certified scan engine offers exceptional protection from all virus types, including Word and Excel macro viruses, in-the-wild viruses and other viruses passed via the Internet and e-mail.
