<p>~ Provides Customers with Relevant Threat Information to Intelligently Manage Security Risk ~</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia, April 1, 2004 –- TruSecure®, the leading provider of intelligent risk management products and services, today announced that NetScreen Technologies, Inc., (Nasdaq: NSCN) has selected TruSecure's threat and vulnerability information to embed into NetScreen's intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) products.</p>
<p>NetScreen chose to team with TruSecure after an exhaustive study of security intelligence providers. TruSecure was selected based on the proven success of its intelligent risk management products and services, unmatched knowledge network, and customer references.</p>
<p>"The integration of TruSecure security intelligence expands the value of the NetScreen IDP product line by providing our customers the capability to immediately assess the impact of attacks and vulnerabilities in their business," said David Flynn, vice president of marketing at NetScreen. "TruSecure's deep roster of security experts and vast intelligence network can help NetScreen deliver valuable security information to its customers."</p>
<p>Powered by the TruSecure Security Knowledge Network, NetScreen's IDP customers can identify areas of potential business interruptions and intellectual property loss through:</p>
<p> In-depth information for responding quickly and efficiently to attacks and vulnerabilities</p>
<p> Ease of access to threat and vulnerability information within the IDP management console</p>
<p> Updated data as new threats and vulnerabilities are identified</p>
<p> Coverage of a variety of threat types, including denial-of-service, malcode, and worms</p>
<p>"Timeliness and relevance are two of the most important ingredients in effectively managing security risk," said Philip Dewar, Vice President, Operations, Asia Pacific at TruSecure. "While quickly alerting customers that have assets vulnerable to emerging threats is important, prioritising their remediation efforts based on how vulnerable they are, the chance of exploitation and associated cost of a breach is even more critical. NetScreen's selection of TruSecure continues to demonstrate the value of our approach to defining, publishing and defending against the worldwide threatscape."</p>
