Command Software Offers IBM Customers A Fress Upgrade To Command AntiVirus

Special Customer Assistance Package Ensures Smooth Transition for Orphaned Users

6/8, 1998

Jupiter, FL - Effective immediately, IBM AntiVirus customers can upgrade their current anti-virus solution to Command AntiVirus�, the industry-leading anti-virus solution from Command Software Systems, Inc. without charge. Users will receive a credit equal to the remaining term of their IBM license, which will be credited toward their new Command AntiVirus license. In addition, Command Software will also add a free additional year to the license term.

As IBM Software stops updates and support for its anti-virus software in December 1998, many users may feel as if they must accept the upgrade path presented to them or do without comprehensive and timely anti-virus protection. Command Software, however, is offering these customers the optimum anti-virus protection in Command AntiVirus, along with the added benefit of OS/2 platform support. This leading-edge software solution combines superior detection technology, first-rate administrative capabilities and comprehensive, up-to-the-minute virus protection.

"This opportunity comes at a particularly advantageous time for IBM customers," says Andy Ruppanner, Command Vice President of Marketing and Sales and former IBM executive. "A major upgrade to Command AntiVirus is about to be released, featuring the debut of our industry-leading, state-of-the-art scan engine with HoloCheck� Technology and CSS Central�, a revolutionary, easy to install, easy to administer, single point centralized management system. New users will also benefit from Command's commitment to customer satisfaction - Command Care�. They will enjoy the confidence of knowing that their anti-virus protection is cutting-edge current with hourly signature updates and automated downloads. Command's Service that Never Sleeps provides 24-hour, technical support and a Virus Response Alert Team at their service around the clock."

Command's special customer assistance package will guarantee a smooth transition for IBM customers to Command AntiVirus. In addition to a free upgrade of product and licenses, a special corporate transition team will facilitate each conversion. Specially-trained support personal will provide technical and customer support assistance, and will help users implement the software conversion tool needed to quickly and completely remove IBM AntiVirus.

Interested IBM customers should call (800) 423-9147 for more details.
