MAXUM DEVELOPMENT ANNOUNCES UPGRADE TO PAGESENTRY -
NOW MONITORING ALL INTERNET SERVERS

MacWorld, Boston, Massachusetts, August 7, 1996 - Maxum Development
Corporation, a leading developer of Macintosh Web server add-on tools,
announces an upgrade to PageSentry, the Internet server monitor which
allows network administrators to maintain reliable sites on the Internet.
In addition to Web site monitoring, the latest version, PageSentry 2.0, now
provides monitoring for FTP, SMTP (e-mail), DNS, and Telnet services as
well. PageSentry uses these high-level client services to test the whole
server, not just the low-level networking functions.

"PageSentry 2.0 has been almost a complete rewrite of the earlier
versions," says Michael Clark, Director of Engineering for Maxum
Development. "We have tried to anticipate all possible concerns of the
system administrator, including a more intuitive interface and tremendous
flexibility in configuration."

Providing visitors with reliable seven days a week, 24 hours a day access
to a Web site has become an Internet imperative. Keeping the server up and
running is the Webmaster's top priority. When a server fails, PageSentry
will notify the site administrator by e-mail or by using any
AppleEvent-aware application, including AppleScript applets. For example,
PageSentry includes applications for sending alpha-numeric pages (using
MarkSpace's PageNow! software, available direct from Maxum) or
automatically restarting servers (using Sophisticated Circuit's PowerKey
Pro hardware, also available direct from Maxum). Schedules and warning
delays can also be set to define what actions should be taken at different
times of the day or days of the week. For example, PageSentry might send
an e-mail or page during business hours, but automatically restart the
server in the evening or on the week-end. PageSentry also monitors itself
via a "pulse", which can also be sent to the site administrator. This
ensures around-the-clock access to users.

"This new version greatly extends PageSentry's effectiveness", according
to Joe Duffy, Manager -Technology and Tools, Baxter Healthcare. "Now I have
a complete solution to monitoring all aspects of our global Web
infrastructure".

Current license holders can upgrade by downloading the PageSentry 2.0
demonstration version from Maxum's Web site and dropping their PageSentry
Key on the demo application. PageSentry retails for $149.00 and new
customers can order by either visiting http://www.maxum.com or by calling
Maxum Development at (630) 830-1113.
