Atipa Unveils User-friendly Firewalls 
Easy-To-Use Solutions Are Upgradeable, Affordable And Feature-Rich 
KANSAS CITY, MO  -- (INTERNET WIRE) -- 08/07/00 -- Atipa Corporation,
a leading provider of end-to- end Linux and open source solutions, today
introduced the new Atipa Firewall and Firewall  Plus to its Product
Solution Series of scalable,  easy-to-use business solutions.  Both
Linux  firewalls are platform-neutral and fully  upgradeable.  Simple
to operate and affordable,  they provide the built-in flexibility
needed to  allow the firewalls to be adapted to the changing  needs of
any organization. 
The high performance Atipa Firewall Plus  is a commercial grade
ICSA-rated product that  leverages the benefits of Progressive
System's  Phoenix Adaptive Firewall Technology (AFT) and  Secure
Management System (SMS), and has  additional anti-attack features
including a De- Militarized Zone (DMZ).  The Firewall Plus is  ideal for a
wide range of organizations that  operate web, FTP or e-mail servers
and seek a  strong but flexible network security system. 
The Atipa Firewall enables smaller  organizations with limited technical
resources to  harness the power of e-business while optimizing  the
protection of all networked resources.    Because it  utilizes open
source software, a  system administrator has the freedom to add
additional features and capabilities to the  Firewall as he sees fit
to meet the changing  needs of the organization. 
"The need for enhanced network security  is growing as more and more
organizations conduct  e-business and expand their presence on the
Web,"  said Maria Goulet, Director of Marketing for  Atipa.  "Our
firewalls deliver the reliable  security needed by businesses that are
expanding  their web presence and need affordable solutions  that are
adaptable to changing needs."
