     MEQUON, Wis., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Frontier Technologies and Trus ted

     The e-Lock products will work seamlessly across the Internet, intrane ts

 forgotten password or lost key.
     "RecoverKey gives users the opportunity to enact data saving measures  up
 front when employing the e-Lock solution," said Dr. Prakash Ambegaonkar,
 Frontier Technologies' Chairman & CEO.  "Frontier's expertise coupled wit h
 TIS' innovative technology gives users the strongest levels of assurance  that
 their valuable information is locked up tight while providing an emergenc y
 mechanism for unlocking it if the key becomes lost or destroyed."
     "TIS is pleased to join forces with Frontier Technologies in their
 commitment to meet market demand for applications that support user contr
olled
 key recovery," commented Homayoon Tajalli, TIS Executive Vice President a nd
 General Manager, Cryptographic Products.  "Global e-commerce and communic
ation
 depends on impenetrable transmission and storage of valuable information.
 e-Lock can now bring customers the benefit of robust encryption with a ba ckup
 plan in place for recovering locked data if the original key is inaccessi
ble."
     Frontier Technologies' e-Lock security family is a complete,
 standards-based solution for creating, using and managing secure applicat ions
 for intranets and the Internet in both Windows(R) 95 and Windows NT(R)
 environments.  The e-Lock family of products, e-Sign, Secure Messaging
 Toolkit, and e-Lock PKI support digital signatures, encryption and public  key
 infrastructure.
     Trusted Information Systems' RecoverKey CSP is the first software of  its
 kind to reach a worldwide commercial market, enabling Windows 95 and Wind ows
 NT desktop users to implement powerful cryptography at the click of a but ton.

 RC2/RC4, the RecoverKey CSP will provide the components necessary to encr ypt
 and decrypt information seamlessly across applications.
