F-Prot Professional Awarded SECURE Computing Checkmark

Jupiter, FL November, 1996 - Command Software Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that F-PROT Professional anti-virus software has received the esteemed SECURE Computing Checkmark Certification.

To receive the Checkmark Certification designation, products must undergo strict testing procedures in the SECURE Computing test labs. Products are tested for detection against the In the Wild virus list - the viruses that represent the most significant, real life threat. End users can be assured that the anti-virus products receiving the Checkmark logo have been objectively tested and can be relied upon.

Command Software Systems' commitment to excellence is underscored by qualifying for SECURE Computing's prestigious Checkmark Certification program," states Dyan Dyer, Command's CEO and president. "It is of the utmost importance that anti-virus products be tested independently by valid testing organizations. SECURE Computing is respected worldwide for their testing methodologies," Dyer added. "Their Checkmark designation signifies credible performance which the public can count on when making purchasing decisions."

SECURE Computing repeats this testing procedure every three months. In order for a product to maintain its Checkmark status, the manufacturer must be committed to improving the product, incorporating all newly emergent virus signatures and types. Users can rely on Checkmarked products, since the SECURE Computing labs are independently verifying the quality of the products.

The SECURE Computing testing process has been beneficial for F-PROT Professional, according to Therese Padilla, Command's director of product management. "F-PROT Professional has long been known for its excellent detection and disinfection capabilities," she said. "It is always gratifying when an organization that has the respect and trust of the anti-virus industry substantiates the quality of our products. The Checkmark logo will now be added to recognition from the NCSA, NSTL Software Digest and Virus Bulletin."

Command Software Systems, Inc. develops, markets and supports a complete line of leading anti-virus and information security products for IBM personal computers, compatibles and networks.
