    New Operating System Version Offers Unified Threat Management for GTA
Firewall Systems

    ORLANDO, FLA., June 14 /CNW/ - Global Technology Associates, Inc. (GTA),
a worldwide leader in cost-effective network security solutions, today
released GB-OS 5.0, the next evolution of GTA firewall system software. GB-OS
5.0 focuses on advancements to perimeter security by offering unified threat
management (UTM) features for GTA firewall systems.

    In GB-OS 5.0, GTA has incorporated a robust Intrusion Prevention System
into GTA's core GB-OS system software. When used in conjunction with Mail
Sentinel Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam and Surf Sentinel content filtering, GTA
firewall UTM systems offer a comprehensive perimeter security solution.

    "GTA has been incorporating aspects of UTM perimeter security in our last
two operating system releases," said Paul Emerson, President of GTA. "Since
introduced in 1994, GTA firewall products have been continually evolving and
now include a full complement of UTM features - Intrusion Prevention,
Anti-Virus, Anti-Spam and GTA secure firewall features. GTA customers can
defend their networks against malicious threats with our cost effective,
dedicated systems."

    GTA Firewall UTM systems are purpose built systems specifically designed
for use in the SME marketplace. GB-OS 5.0 will be available on GTA's current
full range of systems - from the GB-250 desktop appliance to GTA's GB-3000
Gigabit Firewall UTM Appliance.

    "Protecting our customer's network is the driving focus behind GTA
products," said Nita Seng, VP of Sales & Marketing for GTA. "Even smaller
organizations need a secure network. By offering complete UTM features on our
full range of products, GTA enables our customers with smaller networks to
utilize GB-OS 5.0 UTM offering to protect against perimeter threats with a
cost effective solution. There is no need for them to compromise security due
to the size of their organization."

    In addition to the unified threat management features, GB-OS 5.0 includes
VPN enhancements, an improved graphical interface for configuration
verification and the ability to import/export configurations in XML format.

    GTA will begin shipping GB-OS 5.0 pre-installed on new units starting
June 14, 2007. GB-OS 5.0 will be available to existing GTA customers with a
current support offering. Other users should contact their local GTA channel
