NetScreen Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSCN) today announced availability of the NetScreen-5GT appliance with embedded antivirus functionality, the industry’s first appliance to tightly integrate best-of-breed firewall, virtual private network (VPN), intrusion prevention and gateway antivirus security functionality in a single platform.
