 (Nasdaq: ALDN), a global leader in the field of Internet content and software
 security, today announced that eSafe Enterprise received Network Magazine's
 prestigious Product of the Year 2001 award for the network anti-virus

 strong anti-virus capabilities accompanied by data protection and content
 filtering features within eSafe Enterprise.

 organizations," said Steve Steinke, Editor-in-Chief of Network Magazine.  "Our
 editors research the intersection of the enterprise and the new public network
 to determine products and categories that matter most to readers."
     Product of the Year Awards are awarded by Network Magazine based on the
 broad appeal of the product to the publication's reader base, competitive
 enhancements offered by a product, price and performance advantages, technical
 ingenuity and serviceability to the market.
     "The recognition brought by Network Magazine's Product of the Year award
 accentuates the broad range of protection within eSafe Enterprise," said
 Shimon Gruper, Vice President of Internet Security Technologies at Aladdin
 Knowledge Systems.  "Coupled with the powerful anti-virus protection
 recognized by Network Magazine, the overall content security capabilities
 within eSafe Enterprise provide a truly complete security package for
 corporate networks."
     Winners of the Product of the Year awards will be featured in the May
 issue of Network Magazine and be recognized on Wednesday, May 9th during
 Networld + Interop Spring 2001 in Las Vegas.
 
     About eSafe
     Aladdin's eSafe product suite, which includes eSafe Desktop, eSafe
 Enterprise and eSafe Gateway, provides the most comprehensive protection
 available against hostile elements on the Internet and gives users confidence
 in their ability to navigate the Internet safely.
     eSafe is the only comprehensive suite of content security solutions on the
 market to provide proactive protection from the gateway to the desktop.  It
 also is the only one to provide Sandbox protection against all forms of
 malicious content including viruses, vandals and worms.  A unique feature
 found only in Aladdin's eSafe solutions, the sandbox erects a protective wall
 around vital system files and isolates all potentially dangerous viruses,
 vandals and worms in a sterile environment, preventing them from damaging,
 infecting or stealing from system resources.
     Much more than anti-virus protection, the eSafe suite of products enables
 businesses to:
     -- block users ability to alter system files, thereby reducing IT
        maintenance and repair costs
     -- stop access to web sites with inappropriate or malicious content, such
        as hate literature or pornography, or those sites known to propagate
        viruses
     -- restrict outgoing emails from sending classified or prohibited content
