WINBEEP(TM) REMOTE MESSAGE TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATED INTO LANLORD(R) 2.0

 NORWOOD, Mass, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Microcom(R) Inc. (NASDAQ: MNPI), a remote PC connectivity company with headquarters in Norwood, Mass., and Fourth Wave Technologies Inc., Troy, Mich., announced today that Fourth Wave's WinBEEP Windows(tm) remote-messaging software has been integrated with Microcom's LANlord 2.0 desktop management software.
 Through WinBEEP integration, Microcom has extended LANlord's automated PC and network-alert-notification capabilities to include message forwarding via pagers and any VIM- or MAPI-enabled mail application, according to Emerick Woods, vice president and general manager of Microcom Client Server Technologies Group.
 The new alert-forwarding capability will be available in LANlord 2.0, which will begin shipping in June 1993. It can provide immediate delivery of a notification message when a workstation exceeds a preconfigured threshold (e.g. virus detected, disk utilization nearing capacity or network statistics violation) by allowing LANlord to communicate with mobile LAN support staff instantly, regardless of location, through virtually any paging device, including alphanumeric pagers.
 Forwarded alert messages can include an alert description, date and time, and name or address of the PC generating the alert. Network managers and LAN administrators can specify alert filters to determine which messages are forwarded to pagers or electronic-mail applications supported by the WinBEEP software. These filters can be based on alert priorities or type and managers can also select which LAN administrators are to be notified.
 "WinBEEP's integration with LANlord is an excellent example of how our remote-messaging software can enhance the capabilities and value of existing software," said Tim Hudson, president of Fourth Wave Technologies, Inc.
 LANlord 2.0 supports automatic hardware and software inventory; network and PC monitoring; remote management and control; software metering; virus detection and repair; and data export and reporting applications, for DOS and Windows client PCs running in Novell NetWare(R), IBM(R) LAN Server, Microsoft(R) LAN Manager and 100 percent NetBIOS-compatible networks.
 WinBEEP's network features include all the capabilities of the standalone product, including support for standard paging protocols, individual or group paging, automated user signature, intuitive installation, message logging, attach and send files, and full DDE capabilities. It is also e-mail enabled for Microsoft Mail(R) and Lotus cc:Mail(tm), provides centralized database "phonebooks," and is compatible with shared modem devices. Special Windows for Workgroups features include peer-to-peer "phonebook" sharing and peer-to-peer modem sharing.
 LANlord 2.0 with integrated WinBEEP support is priced at $2,495 for a 50-user license. For more information on LANlord 2.0, contact Microcom at 914-968-2300. WinBEEP is available separately from Fourth Wave Technologies in single-user and network versions, and a special 10 percent discount on WinBEEP purchases is currently being offered to LANlord customers.
