Recent Terror Alerts Prompt CEO to Offer World Class Network Security Technology at No Charge to U.S.-based Financial Services Firms

New York, NY, August 4, 2004 - Just steps away from the New York Stock Exchange, FrontGate Systems, LLC, a leading provider of network security technology for the financial services sector today announced that they will be making their latest Enterprise Security Software (ESSTM) immediately available at no charge to U.S.-based financial services firms.

FrontGate is making its next-generation technology available at no fee for a limited time so that financial organizations can implement the most robust security technology quickly, and at minimal cost, so as to avert potential risks presented by recent events. "FrontGate Systems has been protecting financial services organizations exclusively since 1997," states Mark R. Weber, co-founder and CEO of FrontGate Systems. "It’s important that we get the best tools into the hands of as many firms as possible, as quickly as possible, to protect the overall integrity and security of the financial community."
