Orlando, Florida (May 4, 1998) -- Global Technology Associates, Inc. (GTA) and Saskatchewan Telecommunications (SaskTel) announced the signing of an agreement today, under which SaskTel will begin marketing and selling the popular GNAT Box Firewall software in Canada. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The highly versatile firewall software will be sold under SaskTel's QuantumLynx program, which offers customers complete Internet-based business packages. "The GNAT Box Firewall solution is a welcome addition to SaskTel's QuantumLynx portfolio," says SaskTel's Dan Baldwin, Group Vice President, Strategic Business Development and Marketing. According to Baldwin, "The GNAT Box Firewall will enhance SaskTel's ability to meet the growing needs of our customers for cost-effective security firewall solutions. "

Based on GTA's proven firewall technology, GNAT Box is the result of the company's pioneering effort to distill its technology into a low-cost, high performance, effective security solution.
