    SUNNYVALE, Calif. and SEATTLE, April 19 /PRNewswire/ --
 Internap Network Services (Nasdaq:   INAP), the leading intelligent routing
 services provider, announced today that McAfee.com (Nasdaq:   MCAF), a leading
 security Application Service Provider (ASP) is using Internap's overlay
 network to support its virus detection and protection efforts for more than
 920,000 customers.
     "We chose Internap because of their unique ability to reach the vast
 majority of IP addresses on the Internet, and to route traffic to and from
 these destinations intelligently, reliably and securely," said Doug Cavit,
 CIO, McAfee.com.  "Since McAfee.com's business relies heavily on the
 reliability of its Internet connectivity, Internap is an ideal partner for
 us."
     "McAfee.com's model of virus detection and protection over the Internet is
 truly groundbreaking, and Internap is proud to serve as the Internet gateway
 for the world's leading security application service provider," said Tony
 Naughtin, President and CEO of Internap Network Services.  "Together,
 McAfee.com and Internap are using the Internet to add value for major
 corporations and consumers alike, but more importantly these two great
 companies are demonstrating the power of the Internet when the roadblocks of
 congestion and dumb networking are removed."
     McAfee.com's need for a more efficient and scalable Internet
 infrastructure was easily recognizable.  McAfee.com has more than
 920,000 subscribers worldwide who use their first-rate online security
 services to protect, maintain and optimize their PCs on a daily basis.  So
 far, McAfee.com has scanned nearly 39 billion files and found
 18 million of them to be infected, translating to a 20 percent infection rate
 among individual computers.  In addition, during times of virus outbreaks, the
 site is visited by millions of users looking for an anti-virus solution.  For
 example, during the "Naked Wife" virus outbreak last March traffic to the site
 spiked 64% as Internet users logged on to download McAfee.com's anti-virus
 application, according to Nielsens/NetRatings, a leading Internet audience
 measurement service.
     Internap's Overlay Network continuously monitors the traffic situation
 over all the major Internet backbones and routes mission-critical data in a
 faster, more reliable and more managed fashion than conventional Internet
 technology.
