Network Associates creates subsidiary to sell CyberMedia security products

After buying CyberMedia Inc. for $130 million, Network Associates Inc. has created a
software subsidiary to market CyberMedia’s First Aid 98, Guard Dog, Oil Change and
Uninstaller utilities as standalone products.

Other packages Network Associates plan to push as standalones are the company’s
Nuts & Bolts and ViruScan products, said Pete Stewart, vice president and general
manager of the Santa Clara, Calif., company’s McAfee Software Division.

The server diagnostic and self-healing technology created by CyberMedia of Santa
Monica, Calif., for its Support Server Repair Engine will now become part of Network
Associates’ Total Service Desk Suite and might be fully integrated with it later,
Stewart said.

The Navy and National Institutes of Health use CyberMedia products, and the Army and
Bolling Air Force Base in Washington are evaluating Support Server Repair Engine, said
Carol K. Kerins, CyberMedia’s federal sales executive.

CyberMedia’s resellers are Data Procurement Corp. of Rockville, Md., Government
Technology Services Inc. of Chantilly, Va., McBride and Associates Inc. of Albuquerque,
N.M., and Pulsar Data Systems Inc. of Lanham, Md. 

Contact Network Associates at 408-988-3832.
