         7.       PAYMENT AND OTHER PROVISIONS UPON TERMINATION.

                  a.       In the event Employee's employment with the Company
         (including its subsidiaries) is terminated by the Company for Cause as
         provided in Paragraph 5 then, on or before Employee's last day of
         employment with the Company, the provisions of this Paragraph 7a. shall
         apply. These same provisions shall apply if Employee terminates her
         employment without Good Reason as described in Paragraph 6.

                           i. SALARY, PERFORMANCE AWARD, AND BONUS PAYMENTS. The
                  Company shall pay in a lump sum to Employee at the time of
                  Employee's termination such amount of compensation due
                  Employee for services rendered to the Company, as well as
                  compensation for unused vacation time and earned bonus, as has
                  accrued but remains unpaid. Any and all other rights granted
                  to Employee under this Agreement shall terminate as of the
                  date of termination.

                           ii. NON-COMPETITION/NON-SOLICITATION PERIOD. The
                  provisions of Paragraphs 14 and 15 shall, at the option of the
                  Company in its sole discretion, continue to apply with respect
                  to Employee for a period of up to six months following the
                  date of termination, so long as the Company: (x) provides a
                  written notice to Employee within 5 business days after
                  Employee's termination that the Company wishes to exercise its
                  right to require that Employee not compete and not solicit in
                  accordance with Paragraphs 14 and 15 hereof; and (y) Company
                  thereafter pays to Employee in periodic installments, without
                  interest, in accordance with the regular salary payment
                  practices of the Company an amount equal to (.1) the amount of
                  Employee's annual Base Salary as in effect immediately prior
                  to Employee's date of termination, multiplied by (.2) the
                  number of months that the Company is requiring the
                  non-competition and non-solicitation covenants to remain in
                  place, divided by 12. The first such installment of Base
                  Salary and target bonus shall be paid on or before the
                  delivery of the notice described in the prior sentence of this
                  Paragraph 7a(ii). The non-competition and non-solicitation
                  provisions of this Agreement shall no longer apply to Employee
                  if the Company fails to pay the amounts required under this
                  Section 7a(ii) for an uninterrupted 10-day period and such
                  failure is not cured with 5 days after written notice of such
                  failure is delivered to the Company.

                  b.       In the event Employee's employment with the Company
         (including its subsidiaries) is terminated by the Company for any
         reason other than for Cause as provided in Paragraph 5 and other than
         as a consequence of Employee's death, disability, or normal retirement
         under the Company's retirement plans and practices, then the following
         provisions apply. These same provisions shall apply if Employee
         terminates her employment with Good Reason as described in Paragraph 6.
         In addition to the amounts stated below, Employee shall be paid any
         other amounts by the Company to which she is entitled.

                           i. SALARY, PERFORMANCE AWARD, AND BONUS PAYMENTS. On
                  or before Employee's last day of employment with the Company,
                  the Company shall pay in a lump sum to Employee as
                  compensation for services rendered to the Company a cash
                  amount equal to one-half the amount of Employee's annual Base
                  Salary and the greater of (x) one-half the target bonus under
                  the Management Bonus Program as in effect immediately prior to
                  her date of termination or (y) the amount of the bonus under
                  the Management Bonus Program to which she is entitled but
                  which remains unpaid. At the election of the Company, the cash
                  amount referred to in this Paragraph 7b.i. may be paid to
                  Employee in periodic installments, without interest, in
                  accordance with the regular salary payment practices of the


<PAGE>   4

                  Company, with the first such installment to be paid on or
                  before Employee's last day of employment with the Company, and
                  no interest shall be paid with respect to any amount not paid
                  on the Employee's date of termination.

                           ii.  VESTING OF OPTIONS AND RIGHTS. Notwithstanding
                  the vesting period provided for in the Stock Option Plan and
                  any related stock option agreements between the Company and
                  Employee for stock options ("options") and stock appreciation
                  rights ("rights") granted Employee by the Company, all options
                  and stock appreciation rights that were exercisable at the
                  date of termination or within 12 months thereafter shall be
                  immediately exercisable upon termination of employment. In
                  addition, Employee will have the right to exercise all such
                  options and rights for the shorter of (a) six months following
                  her termination of employment or (b) with respect to each
                  option, the remainder of the period of exercisability under
                  the terms of the appropriate documents that grant such
                  options.

                           iii. BENEFIT PLAN COVERAGE. The Company shall
                  maintain in full force and effect for Employee and her
                  dependents for six months after the date of termination, all
                  life, health, accident, and disability benefit plans and other
                  similar employee benefit plans, programs and arrangements in
                  which Employee or her dependents were entitled to participate
                  immediately prior to the date of termination, in such amounts
                  as were in effect immediately prior to the date of
                  termination, provided that such continued participation is
                  possible under the general terms and provisions of such
                  benefit plans, programs and arrangements.

                  In the event that participation in any benefit plan, program
                  or arrangement described above is barred, or any such benefit
                  plan, program or arrangement is discontinued or the benefits
                  thereunder materially reduced, the Company shall arrange to
                  provide Employee and her dependents for six months after the
                  date of termination with benefits substantially similar to
                  those that they were entitled to receive under such benefit
                  plans, programs and arrangements immediately prior to the date
                  of termination. Notwithstanding any time period for continued
                  benefits stated in this Paragraph 7b.iii., all benefits in
                  this Paragraph 7b.iii. will terminate on the date that
                  Employee becomes an employee of another employer and eligible
                  to participate in the employee benefit plans of such other
                  employer. To the extent that Employee was required to
                  contribute amounts for the benefits described in this
                  Paragraph 7b.iii. prior to her termination, she shall continue
                  to contribute such amounts for such time as these benefits
                  continue in effect after termination.

                           iv.  OTHER COMPENSATION. Any awards previously made
                  to Employee under any of the Company's compensation plans or
                  programs and not previously paid shall immediately vest on the
                  date of her termination and shall be paid on that date and
                  included as compensation in the year paid.

                           v.   SAVINGS AND OTHER PLANS. Except as otherwise
                  more specifically provided herein or under the terms of the
                  respective plans relating to termination of employment,
                  Employee's active participation in any applicable savings,
                  retirement, profit sharing or supplemental employee retirement
                  plans or any deferred compensation or similar plan of the
                  Company or any of its subsidiaries shall continue only through
                  the last day of her employment. All other provisions,
                  including any distribution and/or vested rights under such
                  plans, shall be governed by the terms of those respective
                  plans.

                           vi.  NON-COMPETITION/NON-SOLICITATION PERIOD. The
                  provisions of Paragraphs 14 and 15 shall continue, beyond the
                  time periods set forth in such paragraphs, to apply with
                  respect to Employee for six (6) months following the date of
                  termination. The non-competition and non-solicitation
                  provisions of this Agreement shall no longer apply to Employee
                  if the Company fails to pay the amounts required under the
                  provisions of

         8c.). From the occurrence of any Change of Control until the first
         anniversary of such Change of Control, the provisions of Paragraph 8
         shall apply in place of this Paragraph 7, except that in the event that
         Employee's employment is terminated by Employee after a Change of
         Control without Good Reason, then the provisions of Paragraph 8 shall
         not apply and the provisions of Paragraph 7a. shall apply. Termination
         upon death, disability and retirement are covered by Paragraphs 9, 10,
         and 11, respectively.

         under the Company's retirement plans and practices) either (i) by the
         Company for any reason whatsoever or (ii) by Employee with Good Reason
         as provided in Paragraph 6, then Employee shall be entitled to receive

                  b.       NON-COMPETITION/NON-SOLICITATION PERIOD. In the event
         of a termination under the circumstances described in Paragraph 8a.,

                  beneficial ownership of Voting Securities, whether or not such

                  Voting Securities or (z) any corporation with respect to
                  which, following such acquisition, more than 60% of,
                  respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock of
                  such corporation and the combined voting power of the then
                  outstanding voting securities of such corporation entitled to
                  vote generally in the election of directors is then
                  beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by all or
                  substantially all of the individuals and entities who were the
                  beneficial owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Capital
                  Stock and Voting Securities immediately prior to such
                  acquisition in substantially the same proportion as their
                  ownership, immediately prior to such acquisition, of the
                  Outstanding Capital Stock and Voting Securities, as the case
                  may be, shall not constitute a Change of Control; or

                           ii.  Individuals who, as of the date hereof,
                  constitute the Board (the "Incumbent Board") cease for any
                  reason to constitute at least a majority of the Board,
                  provided that any individual becoming a director subsequent to
                  the date hereof whose election or nomination for election by
                  the Company's shareholders, was approved by a vote of at least
                  a majority of the directors then comprising the Incumbent
                  Board shall be considered as though such individual were a
                  member of the Incumbent Board, but excluding, for this
                  purpose, any such individual whose initial assumption of
                  office is in connection with an actual or threatened election
                  contest relating to the election of the Directors of the
                  Company (as such terms are used in Rule 14a-11 of Regulation
                  14A, or any successor section, promulgated under the Exchange
                  Act); or

                           iii. Approval by the shareholders of the Company of a
                  reorganization, merger or consolidation (a "Business
                  Combination"), in each case, with respect to which all or
                  substantially all holders of the Outstanding Capital Stock and
                  Voting Securities immediately prior to such Business
                  Combination do not, following such Business Combination,
                  beneficially own, directly or indirectly, more than 60% of,
                  respectively, the then outstanding shares of common stock and
                  the combined voting power of the then outstanding voting
                  securities entitled to vote generally in the election of
                  directors, as the case may be, of the corporation resulting
                  from Business Combination; or

                           iv.  (a) a complete liquidation or dissolution of the
                  Company or (b) a sale or other disposition of all or
                  substantially all of the assets of the Company other than to a
                  corporation with respect to which, following such sale or
                  disposition, more than 60% of, respectively, the then
                  outstanding shares of common stock and the combined voting
                  power of the then outstanding voting securities entitled to
                  vote generally in the election of directors is then owned
                  beneficially, directly or indirectly, by all or substantially
                  all of the individuals and entities who were the beneficial
                  owners, respectively, of the Outstanding Capital Stock and
                  Voting Securities immediately prior to such sale or
                  disposition in substantially the same proportion as their
                  ownership of the Outstanding Capital Stock and Voting
                  Securities, as the case may be, immediately prior to such sale
                  or disposition.

         9.       TERMINATION BY REASON OF DEATH. If Employee shall die while
employed by the Company both prior to termination of employment and during the
effective Term of this Agreement, all Employee's rights under this Agreement
shall terminate with the payment of such amounts of annual Base Salary as have
accrued but remain unpaid and a prorated amount of targeted bonus under the
Company's Management Bonus Program through the month in which her death occurs,
plus three additional months of the fixed salary and targeted bonus. All
benefits under 7b.ii., 7b.iv and 7b.v. shall be extended to Employee's estate as
described in such paragraphs. In addition, Employee's eligible dependents shall
receive continued benefit plan coverage under Paragraph 7b.iii. for three months
from the date of Employee's death.

         10.      TERMINATION BY DISABILITY. Employee's employment hereunder may
be terminated by the Company for "disability" (as defined below). In such event,
all Employee's rights under this Agreement shall terminate with the payment of
such amounts of annual Base Salary as have accrued


<PAGE>   7

but remain unpaid as of thirtieth (30th) day after such notice is given except
that all benefits under Paragraphs 7b.ii, 7b.iii, 7b.iv. and 7b.v. shall be
extended to Employee as described in such paragraphs. In addition, the
non-competition and non-solicitation provisions of Paragraphs 14 and 15 shall
continue to apply to Employee for a period of one year from the date of
termination.

For purposes of this Agreement, "disability" is defined to mean that, as a
result of Employee's incapacity due to physical or mental illness:

                  a.       Employee shall have been absent from her duties as an
         officer of the Company on a substantially full-time basis for six (6)
         consecutive months; and

                  b.       Within thirty (30) days after the Company notifies
         Employee in writing that it intends to replace him, Employee shall not
         have returned to the performance of her duties as an officer of the
         Company on a full-time basis.

         11.      RETIREMENT. Retirement by Employee, whether occurring as a
result of a voluntary termination by Employee or an involuntary termination as
the result of reaching the age retirement as set forth in the Company's
retirement policies, shall be treated as a voluntary termination without Good
Reason and the provisions of Paragraph 7a. shall apply. If during the Term or
any extension thereof, the Company adopts a retirement plan with respect to
executive officers of the Company, Employee shall have the right to participate
in such policy and the provisions of such policy shall supersede the provisions
of the preceding sentence.

         12.      INDEMNIFICATION. If litigation shall be brought, in the event
of breach or to enforce or interpret any provision contained herein, the
non-prevailing party shall indemnify the prevailing party for reasonable
attorney's fees (including those for negotiations, trial and appeals) and
disbursements incurred by the prevailing party in such litigation, and hereby
agrees to pay prejudgment interest on any money judgment obtained by the
prevailing party calculated at the generally prevailing NationsBank of Florida,
N.A. base rate of interest charged to its commercial customers in effect from
time to time from the date that payment(s) to him should have been made under
this Agreement.

         13.      (Omitted Intentionally)

         14.      NON-COMPETITION.

                  a.       At all times during Employee's employment hereunder,
         and for such additional periods as may otherwise be set forth in this
         Agreement in reference to this Paragraph 14, Employee shall not,
         directly or indirectly, engage in any business, enterprise or
         employment, whether as owner, operator, shareholder, director, partner,
         creditor, consultant, agent or any capacity whatsoever that
         manufactures products designed to compete directly with products of the
         Company or markets such products anywhere in the world where the
         Company (i) is engaged in business or (ii) has evidenced an intention
         of engaging in business. Employee acknowledges that she has read the
         foregoing and agrees that the nature of the geographical restrictions
         are reasonable given the international nature of the Company's
         business.

         In the event that these geographical or temporal restrictions are
         judicially determined to be unreasonable, the parties agree that these
         restrictions shall be judicially reformed to the maximum restrictions
         which are reasonable.

                  b.       Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding
         Paragraph 14a., Employee may accept employment with a company that
         would be deemed to be a competitor of the Company as described in the
         previous sentence ("Competitor"), so long as (i) the Competitor has had
         annual revenues of at least $1 billion in each of the prior two fiscal
         years, (ii) the Competitor's revenues


<PAGE>   8

         for products and maintenance in direct competition with the Company
         does not exceed 50% of its total revenues and (iii) Employee's
         responsibilities are solely for divisions or subsidiaries of the
         Competitor that do not compete with the Company.

         15.      NON-SOLICITATION OF EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS. At all times
during Employee's employment hereunder, or for such additional periods as may
otherwise be set forth in this Agreement in reference to this Paragraph 15,
Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, for himself or for any other person,
firm, corporation, partnership, association or other entity (a) attempt to
employ, employ or enter into any contractual arrangement with any employee or
former employee of the Company, its affiliates, subsidiaries or predecessors in
interest, unless such employee or former employee has not been employed by the
Company, its affiliates, subsidiaries or predecessors in interest during the
twelve months prior to Employee's attempt to employ him, or (b) call on or
solicit any of the actual or targeted prospective customers of the Company or
its affiliates, subsidiaries or predecessors in interest with respect to any
matters related to or competitive with the business of the Company.

         16.      CONFIDENTIALITY.

                  a.       NONDISCLOSURE. Employee acknowledges and agrees that
         the Confidential Information (as defined below) is a valuable, special
         and unique asset of the Company's business. Accordingly, except in
         connection with the performance of her duties hereunder, Employee shall
         not at any time during or subsequent to the term of her employment
         hereunder disclose, directly or indirectly, to any person, firm,
         corporation, partnership, association or other entity any proprietary
         or confidential information relating to the Company or any information
         concerning the Company's financial condition or prospects, the
         Company's customers, the design, development, manufacture, marketing or
         sale of the Company's products or the Company's methods of operating
         its business (collectively "Confidential Information"). Confidential
         Information shall not include information which, at the time of
         disclosure, is known or available to the general public by publication
         or otherwise through no act or failure to act on the part of Employee.

                  b.       RETURN OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. Upon termination
         of Employee's employment, for whatever reason and whether voluntary or
         involuntary, or at any time at the request of the Company, Employee
         shall promptly return all Confidential Information in the possession or
         under the control of Employee to the Company and shall not retain any
         copies or other reproductions or extracts thereof. Employee shall at
         any time at the request of the Company destroy or have destroyed all
         memoranda, notes, reports, and documents, whether in "hard copy" form
         or as stored on magnetic or other media, and all copies and other
         reproductions and extracts thereof, prepared by Employee and shall
         provide the Company with a certificate that the foregoing materials
         have in fact been returned or destroyed.

                  c.       BOOKS AND RECORDS. All books, records and accounts
         whether prepared by Employee or otherwise coming into Employee's
         possession, shall be the exclusive property of the Company and shall be
         returned immediately to the Company upon termination of Employee's
         employment hereunder or upon the Company's request at any time.

         17.      INJUNCTION/SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE SETOFF. Employee acknowledges
that a breach of any of the provisions of Paragraphs 14, 15 or 16 hereof would
result in immediate and irreparable injury to the Company which cannot be
adequately or reasonably compensated at law. Therefore, Employee agrees that the
Company shall be entitled, if any such breach shall occur or be threatened or
attempted, to a decree of specific performance and to a temporary and permanent
injunction, without the posting of a bond, enjoining and restraining such breach
by Employee or her agents, either directly or indirectly, and that such right to
injunction shall be cumulative to whatever other remedies for actual damages to
which the Company is entitled. Employee further agrees that the


<PAGE>   9

Company may set off against or recoup from any amounts due under this Agreement
to the extent of any losses incurred by the Company as a result of any breach by
Employee of the provisions of Paragraphs 14, 15 or 16 hereof.

         18.      SEVERABILITY. Any provision in this Agreement that is
prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction,
be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability
without invalidating or affecting the remaining provisions hereof, and any such
prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or
render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.

         19.      SUCCESSORS. This Agreement shall be binding upon Employee and
inure to her and her estate's benefit, and shall be binding upon and inure to
the benefit of the Company and any permitted successor of the Company. Neither
this Agreement nor any rights arising hereunder may be assigned or pledged by:
Employee or anyone claiming through Employee; or by the Company, except to any
corporation which is the successor in interest to the Company by reason of a
merger, consolidation or sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company.

The foregoing sentence shall not be deemed to have any effect upon the rights of
Employee upon a Change of Control.

         20.      CONTROLLING LAW. This Agreement shall in all respects be
governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Florida.

         21.      NOTICES. Any notice required or permitted to be given
hereunder shall be written and sent by registered or certified mail,
telecommunicated or hand delivered at the address set forth herein or to any
other address of which notice is given:

         To the Company:       CyberGuard Corporation
                               2000 West Commercial Boulevard
                               Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33309
                               Attention:  Chief Executive Officer
         To Employee:          [at such address as appears in the records of the
                               Company as being the last-known address of the
                               Employee]

         22.      ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement constitutes the entire
agreement between the parties hereto on the subject matter hereof and may not be
modified without the written agreement of both parties hereto.

         23.      WAIVER. A waiver by any party of any of the terms and
conditions hereof shall not be construed as a general waiver by such party.

         24.      COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts,
each of which shall be deemed an original and both of which together shall
constitute a single agreement.

         25.      INTERPRETATION. In the event of a conflict between the
provisions of this Agreement and any other agreement or document defining rights
and duties of Employee or the Company upon Employee's termination, the rights
and duties set forth in this Agreement shall control.

         26.      CERTAIN LIMITATIONS ON REMEDIES. Paragraph 7b. provides that
certain payments and other benefits shall be received by Employee upon the
termination of Employee by the Company other than for Cause and states that
these same provisions shall apply if Employee terminates her employment for Good
Reason. It is the intention of this Agreement that if the Company terminates
Employee other than for Cause (and other than as a consequence of Employee's
death, disability or normal retirement) or if Employee terminates her employment
with Good Reason, then the payments


<PAGE>   10

and other benefits set forth in Paragraph 7b. shall constitute the sole and
exclusive remedies of Employee with respect to the subject matter hereof.

         27.      SURVIVAL. Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 2, the
provisions of Paragraphs 14, 15, and 16 shall survive the expiration or early
termination of this Agreement.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, this Employment Agreement has been executed by the
parties as of the date first above written.
