Top Security System Manufacturer Selects Unify to Implement Major Product Upgrade.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 1999--

Unify VISION and Unify DataServer for Linux Provide Honeywell Unit

With Time-to-Market Advantage and a Solid Foundation for Development

of Its Next-Generation Corporate Access Control System

Today Honeywell (NYSE:HON) WSE Division, a market leader in access control security systems, and Unify Corporation (Nasdaq:UNFY), a leading provider of Internet application server solutions for e-commerce, announced that Unify VISION and Unify DataServer for Linux have been selected to develop the next generation WSE NexSentry Command Center product.

In a major upgrade of its flagship corporate access control system, WSE is updating the NexSentry server to a high-performance Linux platform and providing users with a Windows-based graphical operations interface. Using Unify VISION and Unify DataServer for Red Hat Linux will give the company a time-to-market advantage, according to Software Development Director Jeri Donn. "We can retain a great deal of our proven existing applications and bring our software developers on board very quickly by using Unify products," he explains. "The advantage to our customers is that the graphic, intuitive operator interface allows security people to focus on security and not have to be computer operators."

Unify VISION's scaleable application server combined with universal support of leading operating systems and user interfaces allows WSE to easily integrate graphic database objects into its control software, such as digital ID photos, CCTV images, fingerprint, palm scan and other biological identity techniques. In future product enhancements, Donn notes, Unify VISION's publish-and-subscribe capabilities will be instrumental in providing Internet- and intranet-based access control features.

"By making Unify VISION AppServer and AppBuilder available on Linux," states John Davis, Unify Vice President of Business Development, "companies can leverage their existing applications and deploy highly-scalable leading edge graphical, web and e-commerce applications quickly and cost effectively."

The NexSentry Command Center product scales from 24 doors and one operator up to the largest corporate and institutional security installations, according to Honeywell WSE Division. The company manufactures access control cards, card readers, embedded processors, host systems and command centers, and integrates its core security systems with third-party subsystems such as CCTV, badging systems, time and attendance, elevator and lighting controls. One of its largest recent installations was at the 1998 World Expo in Lisbon, Portugal, which featured 12 digital badging stations and over 30 full-time system operators.
