GTA Announces GB-OS Release 3.7.0 (Corrected)
GTA releases the latest version of its firewall system software

Orlando, FL - June 30th, 2005 - Orlando, FL - July 5, 2005 - Global Technology Associates, Inc. (GTA), a worldwide leader in cost-effective network security solutions, today announced the release of GB-OS version 3.7. This latest version is now shipping pre-installed on GTA's family of appliance firewalls - GB-2000, GB-2000e, GB-750, GB-500, GB-250 and GB-250e and GB-Ware, GTA's software firewall.

GB-OS version 3.7 contains numerous new standard features and product enhancements including: innovative Internet load sharing over multiple gateways both physical and virtual; enhanced gateway failover; and advanced, highly configurable policy based routing capabilities.

With the release GTA is also introducing a new mobile VPN client - GTA Mobile VPN Client with support for NAT-T, and USB drive mode.

"GTA products are well-known for offering a basic default configuration, but with the flexibility to fine-tune features to match a wide variety of network configurations," said Paul Emerson, President of GTA. "With this release we extended this philosophy to new powerful flexible features allowing our customers the opportunity to utilize multiple gateways, routing and mobile VPN clients in the way that best suits their needs rather than only offering pre-defined parameters."

GB-OS Version 3.7 will be available at no charge to customers with a GTA support contract or annual maintenance agreement, or who purchased a GTA firewall on or after May 1, 2005. Other users should contact their local GTA channel partner or email for information and pricing of upgrade options.
