    (INTERNET-SECURITY-SYST)(ISSX) ISS Expands Trusted Security Advisor
    Focus, Launches New Professional Services and Training Organization
        ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 1, 1998--
        Industry veteran, David Dodge, appointed vice-president of 
                         Professional Services 
        Internet Security Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISSX), the leading provider
    of adaptive security management software, today announced the launch of
    its new Professional Services organization. 
        This team of highly experienced security consultants will support ISS
    customers across the United States, and in other nations, as they
    implement improved information security measures to combat the growing
    vulnerabilities and threats found in rapidly changing networked
    environments.  With a focus on integrating ISS's own world class software
    with top rated products and tools from other companies, the ISS
    consultants will help end-users achieve the best- of-breed solutions that
    are so urgently needed in the government and commercial industry today. 
        The capability to monitor, detect and respond to security risks has
    become a critical technology issue due to the growth in open computing
    environments and the sharp rise in security threats to important networked
    information.  With a severe market shortage of qualified security experts,
    customers worldwide require a trusted security advisor who can not only
    provide leading adaptive network security software, but who can also
    deliver world-class consulting services and knowledge transfer. 
        "True enterprise security is an ongoing process, not a one-time
    effort," said David Dodge, vice president of ISS's Professional Services. 
    "More and more customers want to tap into ISS's pool of security
    professionals to quickly and efficiently deploy ISS's best-of-breed
    products.  They also want us to aid them in evolving their entire
    enterprise toward better security standards and solutions.  With ISS's new
    professional service offerings, our customers can maximize their
    investment in ISS technology while our experts train, mentor and support
    the customer's staff in rapidly achieving practical information security
        The ISS Professional Services team will be lead by David Dodge.  David
    joins ISS from IBM Global where he served as vice president of Enterprise
    Resource Planning (ERP) Consulting and Implementation Services throughout
    North America.  In this role, David built a one thousand person consulting
    organization in 36 months.  When he joined IBM in 1991, he spearheaded
    IBM's client/servers-related consulting and methodology development. 
        "With our service partners and our authorized training centers,"  Mr. 
    Dodge notes, "we can provide a complete portfolio of support to ISS
    customers regardless of size or geography."  ISS's Professional Service
    offerings include vulnerability and threat assessment, security strategy
    and planning support, security policy and standards development, solution
    implementation and integration, emergency incident response and a full
    range of training and education services.
