Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Aladdin Knowledge Systems, Inc.

    CHICAGO, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Aladdin Knowledge Systems
 (Nasdaq: ALDN), a global leader in the field of Internet content and software
 security, today announced the release of HASP CD 10 and HASP4 USB cross
 platform solution, the most advanced software security system that uses only
 one key to protect applications on PC, Mac and Linux environments.
     As the latest addition to HASP's hardware-based software security system,
 the HASP4 USB key provides unmatched convenience for software vendors that
 deliver their protected applications to multi-platform environments.  Using
 one set of APIs, Aladdin's HASP4 USB key is capable of protecting Windows and
 Linux applications running on a PC, as well as Mac applications running on Mac
 OS 8.6 through Mac OS X.  Vendors no longer need separate keys for multi-
 platform applications using the HASP software security solution. HASP4 USB
 supports the following operating systems:
 
     -- Windows 95 (OSR 2.0), 98, ME and 2000
     -- NT4
     -- Linux,
     -- Mac OS 8.6-9.x
     -- Mac OS X.
 
     "In addition to the added convenience for software vendors, end users are
 provided greater ease of use with Aladdin's release of the HASP4 USB cross
 platform key," said Avi Barir, Vice President of Software eCommerce at Aladdin
 Knowledge Systems.  "Using one key to protect multiple applications on
 separate operating systems simplifies the protection process by using
 technology only offered in Aladdin's HASP system."
 
     About HASP
     HASP (Hardware Against Software Piracy) is a hardware-based security
 system that protects software against piracy and illegal use by preventing
 unauthorized access and execution of the protected software.  HASP4 is the
 next generation of Aladdin's HASP system, helping software developers increase
 revenues by enforcing license agreements, and provides flexible sales models,
 such as:
     -- Time limited demos
     -- Concurrent or floating licenses
     -- Remote updating of software modules
 The new HASP4 remains easy to implement and simple to use, with many wizard-
 based utilities and step-by-step documentation.  HASP4 also features on-chip
 encryption, an advanced Envelope Utility, and a remote updating system with
 full Win32 API integration. For more information, visit Aladdin's Web site at
