NetScreen Debuts Security System

HANNOVER, Germany - (March 13, 2002) NetScreen Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN), a leading developer of ASIC-based Internet security systems and appliances, today announced an optimized integrated security system to handle current and near-term GPRS requirements for high-speed mobile data network operators. Leading mobile systems supplier Ericsson has included NetScreen’s security solution as part of its mobile packet backbone network solutions for GPRS networks. Mobile operators are looking to deploy next-generation wireless infrastructures to allow their customers to surf the web and connect to corporate intranets as easily as they make a mobile phone call. Mobile operators must secure these new networks in order to have customers confidently utilize them, whether the user is on a carrier’s home network or roaming on a different network. “We’ve been able to match up our industry leading security with industry leading GPRS/GSM infrastructure products,” said David Flynn, NetScreen vice president of marketing. “This new solution takes advantage of the high performance of our security systems, and through our relationship with Ericsson, we’ve been able to optimize the NetScreen-500 to meet the particular needs of mobile carriers.” NetScreen Technologies Inc.
