Symantec's Delrina Group Provides Relief to Companies Affected by the Blizzard of the Century; Donates Copies of Remote Computing Software for Windows

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK --January 15, 1996-- Symantec's Delrina Group, world leader in PC communications software, today announced Operation Snow Storm, a relief effort that will make 500 copies of its award-winning pcANYWHERE for Windows Remote computing software available to corporations free of charge to assist workers unable to reach their offices. With over 2 million active users, pcANYWHERE is the best-selling remote control and file transfer software and normally retails for $129-$149.

The pcANYWHERE for Windows Remote Control product allows users to work from home, using their home PC to access the office. Required to run the software is a PC equipped with either Microsoft's Windows 3.1 or Windows 95. "With the excessive amounts of snow we have experienced, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get to the office. This product enables workers to stay at home and work as if they were sitting at their desk," said Christopher Calisi, general manager of the Communications Business Unit.

The pcANYWHERE family of award winning remote computing software solutions are developed on Long Island. "The Long Island branch of Symantec's, Delrina Group has a commitment to the community," said Calisi. "We are very concerned with the risks individuals are facing this winter, in light of the hazards of travel under such extreme conditions."

This software will allow employees to dial into their office PC. Once connected, the user can log into the network, access documents and remotely operate both DOS and Windows-based applications. In addition, pcANYWHERE further increases productivity by enabling users to remotely access devices on their PCs and networks, such as printers, CD-ROMs. "This enables people to remain productive from the comfort and safety of their own home," added Calisi.
