Cupertino, Calif. April 12, 1999-- Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ:SYMC) today announced that it will join Hewlett-Packard Company's Covision Internet solutions program. The program is aimed at providing businesses and corporations integrated Internet-ready solutions through select channel partners. The alliance will provide HP's partners and customers with Symantec's VisualCafé Enterprise Suite, a best-of-breed tool to Internet enable applications, tools and legacy systems.

VisualCafé Enterprise Suite is the industry's premier Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for the creation of distributed Java technology-based applications. VisualCafé Enterprise Suite features unique technology intelligently automates many development tasks, such as configuring applications for interoperability across different platforms and across multiple application servers. Designed using an open approach, VisualCafé Enterprise Suite gives users the flexibility to choose best-of-breed tools for their tasks and to leverage existing resources and platforms. As part of the HP Covision program, VisualCafé is now among those key technologies necessary to build and deploy Internet and Intranet applications for electronic commerce and business information systems.

The Covision program combines leading Internet applications; services from certified Internet-ready resellers, systems integrators and Internet service providers (ISPs); and HP computer technology, including servers, desktops, printers and scanners.
