For Immediate Release

Firewall Admin Client Software to be Showcased
GNAT Box Firewall Windows 95/NT Software

Atlanta, GA (October 19, 1998) Global Technology Associates, Inc. (GTA), the leader in providing the most cost-effective network security solutions, is showcasing its new off-line configuration client for the popular GNAT Box Firewall software here at Networld+Interop'98.

The just released GNAT Box software added on, known as GBAdmin (short for GNAT Box Administration client) is a specially designed Windows95/NT client. The program, which is currently being bundled with Version 2.1, allows users to completely configure the GNAT Box Firewall software from their desktop workstation. Now users can easily create multiple GNAT Box configurations or develop test configurations without taking down their firewall for more than a few minutes.

GBAdmin with its interactive help screens and instant validation checks lets the user completely and safely configure the GNAT Box software off-line. Once a new GNAT Box floppy disk is created using GB Admin, all the user needs to do it swap out their existing GNAT Box floppy disk (containing the old configuration) with the new version. Reboot their system and its done. In less than a few minutes you have easily reconfigured your entire firewall.

Based on GTA's proven firewall technology, the ICSA-certified GNAT Box is a simple to use, but powerful firewall that runs on as little as a 386 CPU with 8Mb RAM. GNAT Box is sold directly by GTA and through its domestic and international distribution network. GTA affiliates are located in Japan, Korea, Singapore, the United Kingdom, France, German, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Eastern Europe, Egypt, Turkey, India, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. GTA is a privately-held US corporation with headquarters in Orlando, Florida, USA.
