Symantec Donates $10,000 and Copies of pcANYWHERE Software to Victims of Florida Fires
Cash, Product Donations Targeted at Helping Floridians Recover from Devastating 'Summer of 1998'
Cupertino, Calif --August 12, 1998-- Symantec Corporation (Nasdaq:
SYMC), the world leader in utility software for business and consumer
computing, today announced it has donated $10,000 to the American Red
Cross Disaster Relief Fund to aid the victims of this summer's Florida
fires. Symantec also announced it is offering free copies of
pcANYWHERE32 v8.0 remote control software to Florida residents affected
by the fires.
"We are very concerned about the conditions Floridians must now face as
a result of such devastating fires," said Christopher Calisi, vice
president of the Remote Productivity Solutions Business Unit. "We
consider it a privilege to be able to provide a cash donation to assist
the American Red Cross relief efforts, and are especially pleased to be
able to offer Florida's residents a product like pcANYWHERE that can
help ease the challenges of doing business anytime, anywhere. We believe
that pcANYWHERE will prove to be an indispensable productivity tool for
Florida's professional population."
pcANYWHERE32 v8.0 will allow Floridians impacted by the fires to work
from remote locations and still have access to their files,
applications, and networks at the office. This kind of accessibility
allows them to synchronize their data from their remote computers to
their office PCs and maintain true freedom while working out of the
office. With this offer, Florida residents will receive remote control,
file transfer, and general communications capabilities with modem,
cable, and network connections in one box. In addition, because
pcANYWHERE32 v8.0 supports all major OS platforms in a single
package-including Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT3.51 and 4.0,
Windows 3.1x, and DOS-Floridians can be assured that the product will be
compatible with their current PC/modem environment.
Companies interested in getting up to three free copies of pcANYWHERE32
8.0 should call the special Symantec Hotline number, (800) 453-1150,
