Legato Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGTO), Mountain View, Calif., a worldwide leader in enterprise storage management, has announced that CyberGuard Corporation (OTC: CYBG) has embedded Legato's high availability software into its new line of appliance products. Legato's high availability software provides continuous firewall protection in CyberGuard's KnightSTAR, STARLord and FireSTAR products, shielding mission- critical data and network systems from security breaches by offering superior firewall protection.

"Businesses have zero tolerance for downtime when it comes to firewall protection. 24/7 operation is no longer an option, it is a requirement. By embedding Legato's high availability software in CyberGuard products, we are ensuring that our customers' businesses can meet today's 365/7/24 expectation," said Mike Wittig, chief technology officer for CyberGuard Corporation. "So Legato has been the perfect choice for us for our family of premium appliance firewalls"

CyberGuard offers a variety of network security products that shield data and network systems from security breaches with reliable firewall protection. Legato's high availability software embedded in CyberGuard's new line of appliance products ensures continuous availability of firewall services, keeping firewall applications available in the unlikely event that a firewall server fails. Legato's high availability software automatically restarts services on the same server or switches to a second server, effectively preventing downtime. With Legato's software, CyberGuard products proactively monitor firewall services and automatically reconnect if there is a failure.

"CyberGuard and Legato are addressing a key concern for businesses today, security for their network and infrastructure. Legato's high availability software embedded in CyberGuard's appliances deliver firewall solutions that meet various security requirements and provide businesses with the highest level of protection," commented George Symons, vice president of product development, Legato Systems, Inc. "Legato continues to partner with market leaders, such as CyberGuard, to meet a variety of application availability and data protection needs based on end-user requirements."

CyberGuard's line of firewall appliances consists of CyberGuard KnightSTAR, STARLord and FireSTAR, for high-, mid- and low-bandwidth users . In January, the company introduced KnightSTAR, CyberGuard's first premium appliance firewall--targeted to mid- to large-sized network customers. STARLord, released in September 2000, was developed to serve the unique security needs of the largest business environments, such as those at Internet service providers (ISPs), application service providers (ASPs), and large data centers and telecommunications providers. FireSTAR, released just last month, is a fully integrated, high-density, pre-staged and ready-to-operate firewall developed for the unique security needs of small- to mid-sized networks with T-1 or DSL connections.
