CROSS-PLATFORM COMMUNICATION BREAKTHROUGH: ALADDIN DROPSTUFF CREATES
STUFFIT AND ZIP COMPRESSED FILES TO MAKE WINDOWS TO MACINTOSH COMMUNICATION
EFFORTLESS

Aladdin Systems' New Compression And Access Utility Eases Cross-Platform
Woes And Delivers One Unique Solution To Windows Users

Watsonville, CA August 12, 1998- Aladdin Systems, Inc. today announced
Aladdin DropStuff(tm) for Windows 1.0; it allows Windows users the ability
to communicate with Macintosh users via the Internet with Aladdin's
universal compression and access tools. Aladdin DropStuff and Aladdin
Expander are the only Windows products that provide easy-to-use StuffIt
compression, decompression of popular online formats, Mac to Windows
segmenting and joining, and the option to automatically compress and attach
files to email.

"Time and again, we have had cross-platform customers contact us asking for
a compression program that allows them the flexibility of StuffIt with
Aladdin's easy-to-use interface," said Marty McGillivray, director of
customer satisfaction. "Aladdin DropStuff is the answer for these
frustrated Windows users and is the next step toward transparent
cross-platform communication."

Aladdin DropStuff and Aladdin Expander Features

*Easy Zip and StuffIt compression via a context menu and the DropStuff menus

*Translates Mac file info to Windows extension (.txt, .doc) for easy access
to files

*The ability to automatically attach StuffIt-compressed files to new
outgoing email messages

*Desktop shortcuts for simple compression and expansion

*Aladdin Expander, the complete and universal access tool for Windows users

*The ability to expand segmented StuffIt files

Aladdin DropStuff, a flexible space-saving utility, compresses files with
either Windows or Macintosh-standard compression (.zip and .sit). Aladdin
DropStuff will compress a file or folder into a compressed archive by a
factor of as much as 98% (average 50%) of its original size; compression
level varies depending on the file-type. Archives save disk space, speed up
modem or network file transfers, use less bandwidth and make backups
easier. Aladdin DropStuff allows Windows users to create StuffIt-compressed
files for communication with Macintosh users. StuffIt is the worldwide
standard for file compression and archiving on the Macintosh platform.

Aladdin Expander(tm) 2.0 freeware, enables access to the popular
compression formats found on the Internet or online. Aladdin Expander joins
files that were segmented by the Mac compression standard, StuffIt Deluxe,
and also supports the decryption and expansion of Aladdin's commercial,
cross-platform security software file format, Private File (.pf).

"The primary weakness of Zip technology is its inability to offer one
Internet file access solution for both Windows and Macintosh users," said
Jonathan Kahn, vice president of sales and business development. "Aladdin
DropStuff is the only way for Windows users to communicate hassle-free
allowing them a true choice of compression standards."

Customers of Aladdin DropStuff for Windows:

*Consumers who want to use the StuffIt format for working on either or both
Windows and Macintosh computers- those working at 'cross-platform'
companies and those in collaboration with companies operating Windows and
Macintosh computers

*Users who need to use the Macintosh-standard StuffIt (.sit) format instead
of Zip for working with graphics, pre-press, publishing, education or other
cross-platform professions

*Users who want one easy and complete compression and expansion tool

*A computer user who wants an easy solution to transmit and join segmented
Mac files and access them on a Windows machine
