    ISS partners with SinglePoint for real time "security hotline"`
     SAN FRANCISCO (Sept. 10) BUSINESS WIRE -Sept. 9, 1998--Today at COMDEX
    Enterprise, Internet Security Systems (Nasdaq: ISSX), the leading provider
    of adaptive network security solutions, announced it is joining forces
    with Singlepoint Systems, a premier provider of automatic notification
    This relationship teams ISS' intrusion detection and response system,
    RealSecure(tm), with Singlepoints' automatic notification product,
    AlarmPoint, creating the first security solution that has the ability to
    automatically notify, via telephone, a specified list of contacts
    anywhere, anytime of a security breach. 
    "This robust technology combination brings together the leading intrusion
    detection system with the most advanced contact notification product to
    deliver a new, industry-unique option for immediate and effective
    responses to security incidents," said ISS Vice President of Product
    Management, Nancy Blair. "As the pioneer in adaptive network security, ISS
    continues to raise the bar in intrusion detection and meet customer needs
    for advanced security response capabilities and effective information
    RealSecure, the industry's leading real-time intrusion detection software,
    protects information around-the-clock by monitoring network traffic and
    automatically detecting and responding to potentially damaging security
    breaches and internal threats. In addition to responding via pager and
    email alarms, RealSecure will be able to work with Singlepoint Systems'
    technology to offer another option for fast, fault resilient telephone
    responses to security breaches. When RealSecure detects an attack,
    AlarmPoint will automatically place a phone call to notify designated
    parties of the security incident. AlarmPoint instructs the receiver on the
    type, severity and time of the attack and the action taken by RealSecure.
    If the first person on the incident response team is not reached,
    AlarmPoint will automatically continue to call a specified list of key
    security contacts until a successful connection has been made. 
    "AlarmPoint's ability to customize phone notification based on specific
    events is a perfect fit for ISS' RealSecure software, providing customers
    with another means for taking immediate action either onsite or remotely
    to recognized security threats," said Desi DosSantos, vice president of
    Research & Develop at Singlepoint Systems, Inc.  Pricing and Availability
    The Singlepoint and ISS products are available today. RealSecure carries
    an U.S. suggested list price of $8,995 for a single perpetual license.
