Phoenix Recover Pro 2004 Includes Built-in Security Protection

9/15/2004 - Phoenix Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:PTEC) announced Recover Pro 2004, an innovative recovery software application for mobile workers and small and medium businesses that includes built-in security protection for a PC user's critical data and applications.

Viruses, worms and other infections continue to barrage PCs, yet 60 percent of all data still resides on the individual PC as opposed to the network. Additionally, mobile users and small and medium businesses typically don't have access to a dedicated IT staff, and are most susceptible to security breaches and infection.

With Recover Pro 2004, users can automatically back up their PC operating system, applications, user settings and data files and easily recover them in the event of an attack. There is no need for IT support or training or to connect to the Internet for recovery assistance. Because the backup and restore functions are built in to the PC's hard drive as a "pre-boot" application, additional CDs, DVDs or a separate USB device aren't necessary to get back to business. After an attack, users will be guided by an easy graphical user interface that requires just a few keystrokes to restore the PC to its pre-attack condition.

Additionally, it offers the flexibility for users to choose how they would like to set up the incremental and automatic backups. Restore points can be set monthly, weekly, daily or hourly.

Recover Pro 2004 stores the backup of the PC system image on an area of the hard drive that is safe from the threat of viruses, worms and other forms of contamination. It allows the recovered system image to be isolated and protected from all threats, including from the operating system, where vulnerabilities are common. In the event users contract a virus, with Recover Pro 2004, they will be able to restore their systems to a point prior to infection, and their recovered data would be free from infection or contamination and they could safely return to work.

Recover Pro 2004 is a vital addition to any company's IT security protection regimen, complementing network protection and virus scanning with the industry's most convenient and powerful PC backup, recovery and protection software.

"Phoenix FirstWare Recover Pro 2004 insures that valuable user data is available every minute of every day regardless of virus attack, OS failure, or accidental file deletion," said Calvin Lam, President, Avus, LLC. "The Phoenix FirstWare Recover Pro 2004 application allows us to help businesses quickly recover their PCs and restore user data which saves time and reduces IT costs."

"FirstWare Recover Pro 2004 does not require recovery CDs or remote users to connect to the network -- this makes it a win-win for our customers and their end users. Phoenix FirstWare Recover Pro 2004's virus protected backups make it the clear winner over other system recovery products. This will be an easy sell that will protect our customers computers and increase customer satisfaction which will drive additional software purchases," Mr. Lam added.

"We all know downtime due to security breaches, viruses and other failures is expensive and frustrating, but for companies, the loss from these attacks can be devastating," said Michael D. Goldgof, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Corporate Marketing and Products Division for Phoenix Technologies. "With RecoverPro 2004, we are giving these businesses, as well as mobile workers who don't always have access to support resources, the tools to keep them safe and productive."
