Taking the Contagion Out of Computer Viruses: CopyTele's Cryptele USS-900 Makes E-Mail Safer.

Business Editors/Technology Writers

MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 19, 2000

Encryption Device Prevents Computer Viruses From Spreading

CopyTele, Inc., a developer and provider of multi-functional telecommunications and encryption products, today announced that its Cryptele(TM) USS-900 now offers protection from computer viruses that spread through e-mail attachments.

According to Frank W. Trischetta, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for CopyTele, the USS-900 provides virus protection capability by encrypting e-mail address books on computers. This virus protection solution is CopyTele propriety technology, and CopyTele has applied for patent protection on this technology. While a computer may be infected with a virus, the contacts listed in the e-mail address book will not.

"The cost to recover from an e-mail virus attack can be devastating," said Frank W. Trischetta, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for CopyTele. "By making address books inaccessible to a virus but accessible to the e-mail program user, the USS-900 encryption solution provides a high level of security against a virus running rampant throughout an organization."

CopyTele's USS-900 is compatible with Microsoft's Outlook(TM) program. Compatibility testing on additional e-mail programs is currently underway. CopyTele plans its first public demonstration of the USS-900's virus protection capability during the Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association (AFCEA) conference June 20 through 22 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C.

Continuing a family of products under the brand name Cryptele(TM), CopyTele's USS-900 hardware solution links the high-grade strength of the CITADEL(TM) CCX encryption chip from Harris Corporation with CopyTele's unique technology for combining multiple communication data streams into a single-button system that is totally transparent to the user.

Priced for the commercial marketplace at under $1,000 per unit, the USS-900 is the first high-grade hardware product to combine in a single device the capability to encrypt voice, fax, e-mail attachments and data file transfer over ordinary telephone lines or satellite communication terminals -- as well as to secure computer-stored files.

CopyTele has introduced its products to commercial, military and government end users via its direct sales team as well as a network of integrators, value-added resellers (VARs) and dealers.

Additional information on the USS-900 and other CopyTele products is available via the Internet: "CopyTele" and "Cryptele" are trademarks of CopyTele, Inc. "Citadel CCX" is a trademark of Harris Corporation. Outlook is a trademark of Microsoft Corporation.
