Apr 15, 1998, 01:00 ET from AbirNet Ltd.

    DALLAS, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- AbirNet Ltd. today announced that it has
 signed a reseller agreement with PTI Telecommunications of Richmond Hill,
 Ontario to distribute AbirNet(TM) SessionWall-3(TM) in Canada.  SessionWall-3
 enables organizations to protect their Intranet from network abuses
 originating with the Internet and Intranet.  SessionWall-3 includes several
 breakthrough advancements including a patent pending no-network overhead
 blocking technology and numerous mechanisms to more easily audit, detect and
 respond to Intranet intrusions and to establish, implement and enforce company
 network usage policies.
     "Corporate managers need to have their finger on the pulse of their
 corporate Internet activities.  Until now these managers had no simple way of
 knowing who is sending what and to whom and when, or knowing whether their
 firewalls are functioning as intended, or if their employees are unwittingly
 making legal or even criminal gaffes, or if their security policies need
 updating," said PTI president, Ron Lepofsky.  SessionWall-3 is an all-in-one,
 simple to interpret report writer, security problem identifier, and employee
 Internet activity management tool, which deals effectively with these issues
 and more!  It's really a case of "try it ... you'll like it."
     "PTI is one of Canada's most respected network protection and network
 management solutions providers.  We are pleased that PTI has selected AbirNet
 to help them respond to their customers' Intranet and Internet network
 monitoring and protection needs," said Kurt Ziegler, Jr., CEO of AbirNet.
