VanDyke Software™ Testing Team Returns With Results, Plans for Next Year

Albuquerque, N.M. (March 14, 2002) — VanDyke Software, a leading provider of security and access software, finished a week of rigorous interoperability testing at Connectathon 2002 in San Jose, California. Connectathon is a vendor-neutral event begun in 1986 by Sun Microsystems to promote multi-platform network computing. This year marks the first time that products using the open Secure Shell protocol have been tested at the event.

"We intend to participate actively in developing a formal test suite for next year's event.
