Here's an overview of happenings during 2002 with exclusive comments from David Flynn, Vice President of Marketing at NetScreen Technologies. When asked about the development of the global VPN and firewall security market in 2002, Flynn said: "Because of the increasing number, complexity and origin of threats, the perimeter firewall security approach is inadequate. Security must be ubiquitous to the network - guarding both the ever-expanding perimeter and the vulnerable interior of an organization. Enterprises and service providers are recognizing that legacy security solutions are too complex to deploy and maintain, and often produce "choke points" in the network, making ubiquitous deployment unwieldy."

    "Customers are increasingly turning to purpose-built integrated security appliances, such as NetScreen's devices, that have exceptional performance, robust functionality and simple deployment and management features to secure their networks without compromise." Flynn added.
