SYMANTEC EXPANDS REMOTE COMMUNICATIONS CAPABILITIES WITH NORTON PCANYWHERE VERSION 1.0 FOR WINDOWS

 CUPERTINO, Calif., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) today expanded its line of network and communications software products with the introduction of the Norton pcAnywhere version 1.0 for Windows. PcAnywhere allows users to access and control a host personal computer from a PC in a remote location. Version 1.0 is a native Windows application providing complete remote control of any DOS or Windows application, general communications with a simple graphical interface and drag and drop file transfers -- without leaving the Windows environment.
 "With more employees traveling or working from home, users need easy and reliable access to their office to maintain and increase productivity," said Rod Turner, Symantec's executive vice president of the Peter Norton Group. "This Windows version adds unsurpassed ease-of- use to the pcAnywhere tradition of superior reliability, compatibility and speed, without sacrificing any of pcAnywhere's broad functionality."
 Comprehensive Solution
 Traditionally, PC users had to make a choice of where their files would be located -- in the office, on their portable or on their home PC -- and how accessible they wanted those files to be. pcAnywhere allows PC users the flexible control and reliable access to information no matter where it is stored. It enables users to work anywhere they choose -- not limiting them by geographical location.
 Easy-to-Use
 PcAnywhere for Windows is ideal for first-time users because its new, intuitive interface makes the product easy to learn and use. In addition, pcAnywhere provides menu-guided installation and a quick- connect feature that connects users to the remote computer in under a minute. The drag-and-drop transfer capability allows a user to transfer files seamlessly from a host computer in one easy step by simply dragging a file from one menu window to another.
 Communications Flexibility
 PcAnywhere includes a complete set of general communications functions. Popular terminal emulations such as ANSI, DEC, IBM and Data General, as well as file transfer protocols including ASCII, XMODEM, YMODEM and Kermit, provide users with greater flexibility. These communications functions make it easier when connecting to public mail and bulletin board services, and when accessing minis and mainframes.
 Leading Technology
 PcAnywhere's superior data compression and error correction make connections fast and reliable. The comprehensive script language enables users to automate remote and general communications, avoiding the need for user intervention. PcAnywhere features its own built-in script editor for straightforward script development. When the product is installed on a LAN, it features a software gateway to provide cost- effective modem sharing. PcAnywhere includes drivers for over 90 specific modems and users can download additional drivers and scripts from Symantec's BBS as new modems become available.
 Pricing and Availability
 The Norton pcAnywhere version 1.0 for Windows includes both LAN and serial capabilities in one package and has a suggested retail price of $199. Customers can choose between single or multiple use installation. Adding additional LAN users is simple with either the LAN Complete Pak or the LAN Host Pak. The LAN complete Pak provides five additional LAN users with pcAnywhere's full functionality. Suggested retail price of the LAN Complete Pak is $599. The LAN Host Pak adds five LAN users but enables them to receive incoming calls only. Suggested retail price of the LAN Host Pak is $199. Registered users of pcAnywhere version 4.5 (for DOS) can cross-grade to the new Windows version for an introductory cross-grade price of $69 by call 800-453-1054.
