Dejal introduces Simon 1.0

A Mac OS X application to monitor web and FTP sites for changes or failures.

PORTLAND, Oregon -- December 6, 2002 -- Dejal Systems today announced the immediate availability of Simon 1.0, a powerful new Mac OS X SIte MONitor. This application checks web and/or FTP sites that you specify at the desired frequency, and indicates when they change or go down. It includes several ways to be notified when a change, failure, or recovery occurs.

David Sinclair, President of Dejal, says: "If you have a web site and a broadband connection, or just want to know when your favorite sites change, you won't want to be without this tool. Why rely on web-based monitoring services that check very infrequently, or charge through the roof for an adequate checking frequency, when Simon can monitor as many sites as you like, as often as you like!"

Simon is localized for both English and French.
