    BOSTON, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- NETECT Inc., provider of anti-hacker
    software solutions, today announced a strategic relationship with
    Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) to play an active role in its Security Partners
    Program. NETECT was chosen for its expertise in anti-hacker software
    technology, a market niche that is becoming increasingly more important as
    the volume of internal and external cyberthreats continue to increase. 
    NETECT's HackerShield(TM), the first deliverable of its Anti-Hacker
    Suite(TM), is an easy to use software solution that finds and closes
    security holes that hackers can use to break into servers. 
    As an active member of the Microsoft Security Partners Program, NETECT
    will provide customers with the products and information they need to
    establish, test and maintain effective information security for their
    computing infrastructure.  "Microsoft is pleased to include NETECT's anti-
    hacker technology to our network security initiative," said Karan Khanna,
    Windows NT Security product manager at Microsoft Corp.  "This program will
    help our mutual customers develop and deploy secure solutions built on the
    Windows NT platform." 
    For system administrators who need to ensure their company's assets are
    protected from hackers, HackerShield, the first product in the Anti-Hacker
    Suite, can easily find and close the holes that hackers use to break into
    servers.  Differentiating itself from other security products that erect
    barriers on the network, HackerShield fortifies each server by
    continuously identifying and repairing the holes that exist on them. 
    "Our participation in the Microsoft's Security Partners Program is a
    strong validation for the importance of easy to use anti-hacking
    solutions,"  said Paul E. Blondin, president and CEO.  "NETECT is
    committed to fulfilling a need for Windows NT-based anti-hacker software
    to virtually anyone regardless of background and IT experience." 
    NETECT was established in 1996 with the mission of providing a secure
    computing environment where all users are protected against threats to
    confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.  Privately
    held, NETECT provides the mass technical audience with anti-hacker
    software aimed at reducing the risk of network intrusions from both
    internal and external sources.  Additional information about NETECT is
    available at http://www.netect.com or call 1-888-2- NETECT.  SOURCE NETECT
