Command VIP 2000 Guarantees Back-up Security Against Y2K Virus Outbreaks

11/3, 1999

Command Software Systems, Inc., a leading provider of virus scanning technologies and protection services, today announced a new one-, two- or three-month program designed to safeguard computer networks against the surge in virus attacks widely projected to occur at the millennium’s end.

Command VIP (Virus Insurance Program) 2000 provides back-up protection to businesses, government agencies and educational institutions against virus attacks from Dec. 1st, 1999, to Feb. 29th, 2000. The program, which costs $5000 (per month/unlimited seats), guarantees that new customers will have unlimited 24x7 worldwide access to Command’s anti-virus emergency response technicians and Web site and includes use of Command’s powerful virus detection and disinfection solutions.

Other components of Command VIP 2000 include e-mails about system invasions and daily updates on new virus strains. "While no one can say exactly what will happen, organizations absolutely need to aggressively protect themselves with a back-up plan against a potential barrage of new viruses, including some disguised as Y2K bugs," said Dyan Dyer, Command’s president and chief executive officer. "Command VIP 2000 offers companies the same 100 percent-effective insurance enjoyed by our regular customers."

To guarantee immediate user access to Command VIP 2000 resources, the program will be sold on a first-come basis to a limited number of new customers. This selective availability will prevent users from being frustrated by busy telephone lines, long hold times or a clogged web site. The company’s Virus Emergency Response Team will be on 24-hour alert throughout the VIP 2000 coverage period.

"Command VIP 2000 is a powerful contingency plan that can make one aspect of system administrators’ jobs easier by eliminating their worries over virus infection at the start of the millennium," said Ms. Dyer.
