       Provides Additional Revenue Opportunities for Resellers, Integrators and
                                     BOOTH #4497
        NETWORLD + INTEROP, LAS VEGAS, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Security Dynamics
    Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: SDTI), a leading provider of enterprise,
    network and data security solutions today introduced the Security Audit
    Toolbox(TM) software, a network security assessment solution designed
    specifically for resellers, systems integrators and IT consultants.  Based
    on the award-winning Kane Security Analyst(TM) (KSA) software, this unique
    offering provides the tools necessary for a quick, automatic security
    assessment of Windows NT and Novell environments, and delivers a
    professional security report of a customer's network.
        "The Kane Security Analyst has been a valuable resource for our Firm,
    helping our consultants improve efficiencies in performing client security
    reviews," said Neil Cooper, Senior Manager, Information Technology Security
    Services, Coopers & Lybrand, L.L.P.
        Given the dynamic nature of corporate networks today, businesses are
    faced with the challenge of protecting valuable information assets from a
    range of internal and external threats.  On average, most businesses need
    to scan their networks for vulnerabilities regularly to ensure security has
    not been compromised.  The Security Audit Toolbox enables integrators,
    resellers and consultants to enhance their security offerings by arming
    them with the best tools to provide these critical security review
        "As businesses come to realize how much security lapses could
    negatively affect their business processes, they are increasingly turning
    to integrators and consultants to safeguard their networks," said Robert
    Keller, president of ASK Data Communications, a SecurWorld(TM) Partner
    based in the New York Metro area. "The Security Audit Toolbox enables us to
    quickly and easily assess a client network, point out the holes and
    recommend the best security solutions possible.  Ultimately, this
    technology will help increase our own revenue by expanding the breadth of
    services we offer to our clients."
        Security Audit Toolbox, which includes a KSA 10-server traveling
    license and security tutorial documentation, is ideal for systems
    integrators and consultants who want to expand their portfolios to include
    security consulting, or who wish to become security service providers using
    products from Security Dynamics, the industry's leading enterprise security
    vendor. Each Security Audit Toolbox allows consultants to audit networks,
    identify security weaknesses and provide recommendations for 10 servers
    without having to repurchase the software license after each evaluation.
        "All of the Big 6 accounting consultant firms have utilized Kane
    Security Analyst to deliver network security reviews at their client
    sites," said Robert Kane, vice president, technical marketing, at Security
    Dynamics.  "As the first formal offering between Security Dynamics and
    Intrusion Detection, Inc. since the merger less than 45 days ago, we are
    pleased to provide the Security Audit Toolbox for a range of IT
    professionals, from small consulting shops to some of the industry's
    largest systems integrators and consultants."
        Security Audit Toolbox provides a front-line analysis component to
    assess the overall security status of a network in six critical areas,
    including user account restrictions, password strength, access control,
    system monitoring, data integrity and data confidentiality.  Once an audit
    has been completed, Security Audit Toolbox provides a complete professional
    security consulting report with 30 graphical, customizable report
    templates, including a personalized cover page and table of contents, that
    can be bound and delivered to the customer.  In addition, the Toolbox
    includes a quick "Security Report Card" that immediately scores the
    network's security performance and identifies areas of concern.
        Pricing and Availability
        The Security Audit Toolbox is immediately available for Windows NT and
    Novell NetWare environments.  The Toolbox is available at a special
    introductory price of $995 U.S. for members of the SecurWorld(TM) Partners
