ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Interface Systems' (Nasdaq: INTF - news) Cleo Products Group today announced that it has added support for the Linux operating system within Cleo 3780Plus, its leading e-Commerce communications software.

Cleo 3780Plus allows Unix, Windows -- and now Linux -- users to exchange data with each other and with mainframe and midrange systems. Linux is an operating system created by a team of volunteers that has recently begun gathering widespread corporate support.

More than $327 billion is expected to change hands in business-to-business transactions by 2002, according to the Forrester Research Group.

In addition to providing Cleo 3780Plus for more than 15 years to thousands of customers, Cleo also supports 3270 host connectivity through SNA and TCP/IP. Asynchronous communications are supported by Cleo A+, and Internet communications are handled by Cleo LexiCom.
