Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from Network Associates Inc.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- McAfee Consumer Products
 Division, a business unit of Network Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq:   NETA), today
 announced that its Internet Guard Dog software was named Best Filtering
 Software by Family PC Magazine.  Awarded the only "A" grade in a competitive
 roundup that included CyberPatrol, CyberSitter, NetNanny and SOS Kid Proof,
 Internet Guard Dog software was deemed "your child's best online friend,"
 earning the highest marks for its easy installation and set-up.  Family PC's
 full review of the Internet Guard Dog software appears in the April edition of
 the magazine and can be found online at
 http://www.zdnet.com/familypc/stories/main/0,12530,2690020,00.html.
     "Once again McAfee's Internet Guard Dog program has proven to be the
 leading online privacy software enabling parents to feel confident that their
 children are protected from prying eyes, security threats and damaging
 viruses," said Diane Seghposs, vice president, McAfee Consumer Products
 Division. "It's especially rewarding to be honored by Family PC, a magazine
 that is recognized industry-wide for promoting safe online practices."
     Granted the only "A" grade in the group, Family PC praises the Internet
 Guard Dog software as "the only filtering program to feature a wizard that
 walks you through the setup process and lets you create highly customized
 profiles for each of your children from the start."  Family PC applauds the
 software's ability to provide parents full access to their children's online
 habits by displaying detailed logs of their activities.  Also highlighted is
 the software's Control Panel that allows users to create specialized settings
 for each child.  Internet Guard Dog software enables parents to prevent their
 child from visiting questionable websites, as well as prevents ads, cookies,
 hostile programs and viruses from invading their PCs.
     McAfee Internet Guard Dog software provides a comprehensive set of
 customizable Internet privacy and security features including cookie blocking,
 web filtering and full anti-virus software protection.  PGP 128-bit encryption
 technology secures confidential data stored on a personal computer.  By
 blocking and erasing information-transmitting cookies and Web surfing trails,
 Internet Guard Dog technology protects consumers from prying eyes and unwanted
 marketing promotions.  The web filtering features scan inbound and outbound
 messages for unwanted or inappropriate subject matter and restrictions can be
 set for each individual user.
