NetScreen Asia Receives Market Penetration Award

Sunnyvale, CA - July 22, 2003 - NetScreen Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN) today announced that a recent Frost & Sullivan network security market research study for Asia Pacific states that NetScreen revenues in the region increased by more than 100 percent for the calendar year 2002. The report, titled “Asia Pacific Network Security Market” , also states that NetScreen has clearly captured significant market share from other competitors and no other competitor matches the market share gain achieved by NetScreen in 2002.

As the fastest growing among the big vendors in Asia Pacific market revenue share, NetScreen recently received the Frost & Sullivan Market Engineering Award for Market Penetration. In addition to market revenue share growth, evaluation for the award also takes into consideration the vendor’s performance in product innovation, marketing and sales strategies that has enabled the company to demonstrate excellence within the industry.

According to the report, the firewall-VPN market growth forecast in the Asia Pacific region demonstrates a shift from software-based solutions to hardware appliances, indicating that the latter will dominate with 95 percent contribution in 2008. The report also indicates that the customer’s evolving security requirements will drive the popularity for integrated multi-solution platforms that will provide improvements in performance, manageability and return on investment (ROI).

Frost & Sullivan, Report no. 4075, Published in May 2003.

“As business networks grow more complex and network attacks more sophisticated, there is constant pressure on security solutions to be more intelligent and proactive,” said Nitin Acharekar, Industry Analyst, Technology Practice at Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific. “Business customers are no longer content with disparate security solutions and perimeter defense. They are looking for security solutions, such as NetScreen’s, that offer best-of-breed technologies integrated onto an appliance-based platform and provide high throughput, ease of use and reduced maintenance costs.”

“It is an honor to be recognized as a key network security player in Asia by a leading research and consulting company such as Frost & Sullivan,” said Hansen Chang, vice president of Asia Pacific sales for NetScreen. “This recognition along with the awards we have received, and our customers’ positive response to our products demonstrate that NetScreen’s high-performance, purpose-built integrated firewall and VPN security appliances and systems are a compelling solution for the market.”
