Sunnyvale, CA - February 10, 2003 - NetScreen Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN) today announced it has moved its worldwide headquarters to a new location in Sunnyvale, Calif. NetScreen will consolidate three local offices into one and double its office space while reducing costs. Built in 2001, NetScreen's new headquarters is located at 805 11th Ave., Sunnyvale, Calif., and encompasses approximately 156,000 square feet. It will house NetScreen's local employees and include a customer training facility and a new briefing center.
