    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- McAfee, a division of
 Network Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq: NETA), today announced that Handex
 Environmental, Inc., an environmental consulting firm, has selected the McAfee
 GroupShield for Microsoft Exchange product to protect its network and e-mail
 communication from Internet borne viruses and malicious code.  Certified by
 the International Computer Security Association (ICSA), the McAfee GroupShield
 product includes McAfee's innovative Outbreak Manager technology, an advanced
 e-mail behavioral scanning technology designed to halt potential new outbreaks
 before they start.
     "McAfee offers us peace-of-mind when it comes to securing our e-mail
 communication from the latest virus threats," said Michael Stern, vice
 president of information systems for Handex Environmental.  "After a careful
 examination of products offered by other vendors, we selected McAfee based on
 the innovative Outbreak Manager technology that stops viruses before they
 affect our systems.  McAfee's technology takes the necessary action to
 quarantine an e-mail that looks malicious or infected before it gets to the
 end user."
     Handex Environmental leverages the Internet for web hosting, transferring
 documents and billing customers, so it is crucial that e-mail communication is
 safeguarded.  The GroupShield for Exchange solution provides Handex
 Environmental with enhanced real-time and on-demand scanning for viruses and
 malicious code, with all configuration and monitoring centrally managed from
 Handex's network operations center (NOC).
     "As a company that recognizes that e-mail viruses are costing billions of
 dollars, the global importance of e-mail up-time is crucial to Handex and its
 customers," said Zoe Lowther, solution marketing manager for the McAfee
 GroupShield line of products.  "McAfee GroupShield for Exchange and the
 Outbreak Manager technology enables Handex to stop an outbreak before it
 starts, letting administrators feel confident that employees will not become a
 virus target."
     Handex benefits from the world-class virus researchers who make up McAfee
 AVERT (Anti-Virus Emergency Response Team).  McAfee AVERT is a 24x7 global
 research organization that works closely with customers and the anti-virus
 community to provide up-to-date diagnostics, cures and protection from new
 viruses.  The McAfee AVERT team will work with Handex to proactively alert and
 protect their company from the increasingly prevalent epidemic of virus
 attacks propagating across the Internet.

 attacks by malicious Internet applets and viruses.  The McAfee Active Virus
