Denver, Cob (May 16, 1997)-CARL Corporation and Hyper Technologies, Inc. are pleased to announce an agreement which allows CARL to market Hyper Technologies' Integrity KIOSK (IKIOSK) security software. This agreement will allow CARL customers to provide selective access to functions from their public workstations. IKIOSK extends the security features of Everybody's Menu Builder and Everybody's Catalog by disabling functions at the menu and item level.

IKIOSK gives libraries the ability to secure public workstations running third party applications like web browsers and office desktop applications by "disabling" or "graying out" menu items. IKIOSK also prevents users from accessing third party application functions such as Minimize, Maximize, Size and Close.

"Everybody's Menu Builder provides a secure menu environment for public access workstations. The addition of IKIOSK will make it even easier for libraries to implement security and provide more flexibility on their PCs. We're extremely pleased to be able to offer this functionality to our customers," said Nathan Frick, product specialist for Everybody's Menu Builder at CARL.

Hyper Technologies, Inc. is located in Blame, WA . With an international customer base, Hyper Technologies has provided public access control software to libraries since 1988.
