VirusBarrier 1.0 for the Palm OS


Miami, Florida, February 28, 2001 — Intego, a leading provider of
Macintosh Internet security software, today announced the release of
VirusBarrier 1.0 for the Palm OS. VirusBarrier solves the growing problem
of viruses on Palm OS devices, by scanning the PDA and detecting virus
infected files, and deleting them, to ensure that they do not propagate.
VirusBarrier for Palm OS runs on all Palm OS compatible devices – Palm,
Handspring, IBM and others.

With more than 11 million Palm OS PDAs sold around the world, it didn’t
take long for virus writers to start targeting these devices. As more Palm
users connect to the Internet, these viruses spread rapidly. The Palm OS
version of the acclaimed VirusBarrier antivirus program will protect Palm
PDAs from all known viruses, keeping data safe.

Intego is committed to providing thorough virus protection for Palm OS
devices. As new viruses are found, updates will be made available on
Intego’s web site.

“The virus threat on Palm OS devices is real. As virus writers realize that
they have a new playing field, more and more viruses will be discovered,”
said Laurent Marteau, CEO, Intego. “VirusBarrier is your insurance against
all kinds of viruses-it watches over your Palm PDA so you don’t have to
worry about them.”

VirusBarrier for Palm OS is available immediately for $14.95 from
retailers, including, CompUSA, MacZone,, Computertown,
Club Mac, MacWarehouse, MacMall, ComputerWare, Computer Store Northwest,
J&R, Microcenter, CDW, DevDepot, and from 200 Apple Specialists (see
