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.
Availability of the NetScreen-5GT appliance with integrated antivirus functionality is the direct result of NetScreen and Trend Micro’s (NASDAQ:TMIC) recently expanded relationship (see related press release issued May 21, 2003: “NetScreen and Trend Micro to Drive Tighter Integration of Network Security Solutions”). The NetScreen-5GT, an integrated security appliance for enterprise remote sites and telecommuters, is the culmination of a development effort between the two companies that has focused on delivering Trend Micro’s antivirus technology coupled with the robust security and networking capabilities of NetScreen’s solutions.
