Jul 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., July 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International,
 Inc. (CA), the world leader in eBusiness management solutions, announced today
 that eTrust Access Control and eTrust Policy Compliance earned Editors' Choice
 awards from CNET Linux Magazine.  These products received a 9 out of a
 possible 10 rating in a recent test for Linux Software Utilities.  The win
 demonstrates the global acceptance of eTrust Access Control and eTrust Policy
 Compliance as the preferred management solutions and ideal tools for Linux in
 the enterprise.
     According to the reviewer, Julie Meloni, "Both eTrust Access Control and
 eTrust Policy Compliance are comprehensive solutions for the problem of
 enterprise network security.  Each tool features an easy installation
 procedure, a deluge of documentation, and a simple GUI that eases
 administrative tasks.  Both tools are well suited for any corporation or
 government entity looking for a way to manage users and systems."
     "The viability of Linux as an enterprise-class platform for eBusiness is
 in part contingent upon the availability of highly effective security
 management solutions to Linux users," said Barry Keyes, vice president,
 security solutions, CA.  "The CNET Editors' Choice award indicates that CA has
 addressed this need better than anyone else, and that -- in conjunction with
 our other award-winning Linux solutions -- we continue to lead the way in
 making Linux a true enterprise computing platform alternative."
     CA offers more than 35 solutions for the Linux platform, both distributed
 and mainframe, and continues to develop innovative new solutions to optimize
 Linux eBusiness operations in the enterprise.
     eTrust Access Control provides the highly granular access control
 capabilities that are essential to eBusiness.  It provides policy-based
 control of who can access specific system resources, what they can do within
 them, and when they are allowed access.  eTrust Access Control provides
 unparalleled host-based intrusion prevention for today's eBusiness to combat
 against both internal and external malicious attacks and unauthorized access.
 eTrust Access Control can be managed and distributed on an enterprise-wide
 basis, or customized to meet the security requirements of specific
 applications.
     eTrust Policy Compliance reduces the cost and complexity of managing
 system security and delivers accelerated return on investment by providing a
 comprehensive security risk control solution that identifies potential policy
 vulnerabilities, facilitates their resolution, and closely monitors system
 activity to prevent their recurrence -- enabling administrators to instantly
 address inadequate security policies anywhere in their eBusiness environments.
     The unmatched breadth and sophistication of the eTrust product
 family -- with solutions for certificate management, risk assessment, attack
 detection, and loss prevention -- enable management teams to defend,
 administer access and ensure the management and security of complex eBusiness
 environments.  Fully supported by new professional services and education
 programs, eTrust solutions are also compliant with established and emerging
 security industry standards, ensuring interoperability with existing internal
 security mechanisms and those of eBusiness trading partners.
 
     CNET Editors' Choice awards recognize computing solutions such as eTrust,
 which deliver the highest quality, design, and service to users.  Products
 bearing the CNET Editors' Choice graphic have been rigorously tested and
 carefully evaluated by our panel of expert editors and writers. The complete
 review is available at http://linux.cnet.com/linux/0-2136889-7-
