    PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 5, 1998--WebTrends Corporation, the
    leader and pioneer in enterprise management of Internet servers and
    firewalls, today announced the WebTrends Security Analyzer v2.0. 
    The WebTrends Security Analyzer detects security vulnerabilities on
    Internet, intranet and extranet servers and firewalls, as well as Windows
    95, 98 and NT systems. The beta product is available for download directly
    from WebTrends Corporation web site at http://www.webtrends.com/wsa. 
    "Security analysis is one of our customers' most requested features," 
    said Glen Boyd, president and CTO of WebTrends Corporation. "Our mission
    is to provide complete management solutions for web professionals,
    webmasters, IT/IS managers, and administrators in charge of Internet and
    intranet networks. The WebTrends Security Analyzer will help customers not
    only detect, but also fix security vulnerabilities to prevent hacker
    attacks on web servers, firewalls and other Internet systems made
    available to the outside world." 
    WebTrends Security Analyzer
    Formerly known as the Asmodeus Security Scanner, which WebTrends
    Corporation acquired earlier this year, the WebTrends Security Analyzer
    offers a wide range of security testing policies, from simple port scans
    to complete security analysis. In addition, administrators can define
    their own testing policies. The product includes an expert knowledge base
    on security risks that enables it to: -- Identify risks associated with
    unreliable system configurations and hidden shared resources -- Rate the
    risks associated with each vulnerability detected -- Offer fixes and hot
    links to platform vendors providing additional information about the
    security risk
    The analysis results are stored in a relational database and can be viewed
    by Hosts, Vulnerabilities, Fixes Required, Services and User Accounts. The
    WebTrends Security Analyzer can also produce complete and comparative
    reports in HTML and Microsoft Word formats. Analysis scans and reports can
    be automated with a built-in Scheduler, or run as a standard application
    or a Windows NT system service. 
    The WebTrends Security Analyzer has the same award-winning user interface
    common to all WebTrends products, making it easy to learn and use.
    Standard features include enterprise-wide management of multiple analysis
    profiles for individual systems, workgroups or entire networks, and a
    robust on-line help system. 
    Detection and Fixes of the Latest Security Issues Reported by the Computer
    The WebTrends Security Analyzer is committed to detecting the most recent
    security issues reported by Microsoft, Netscape, industry security groups,
    and even hacker groups. WebTrends Corporation will continue to provide
    updates for the WebTrends Security Analyzer as security issues and
    vulnerabilities emerge. The updates will be available for download from
    http://www.webtrends.com/wsa. Some of the current security issues
