Dear Mr. Gifford:

IBM is pleased to respond to your request for services to provide NetScreen
Technologies, Inc. (NetScreen) with a hosting environment and technical support
services for your OneWorld version B37.3.1 application. This Consulting Letter
will serve as the Statement of Work while we finalize a formal contract in the
coming weeks that will supersede this consulting letter. The formal contract
will be for a six-month duration.

Thank you for considering IBM as an Application Service Provider for your J.D.
Edwards B7.3.3.1 ERP system. IBM proposes a two-phased project intended to make
your J.D. Edwards ERP system available from an IBM ASP facility.

IBM Responsibilities

In Phase 1, IBM is to:

     1.   Perform a scooping of the configured OneWorld application in
          preparation for application Management Services (AMS) deployment;
     2.   Restore and test the configured production and prototype (CRP)
          environments up their current state on IBM owned hardware; all
          unapplied fixes to the application are out of scope and will be
          managed through the Change Control Process
     3.   Refresh with current data prior to cutover;
     4.   Designate a Service Delivery Manager, and work with NetScreen to
          define level 1, 2 and 3 support procedures. (Level 1 call logging is
          targeted to be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Level
          2 support is targeted to be available 13 hours per day, five days per
          week, from 7 AM to 8 PM ET);
     5.   Provide capacity for thirty concurrent users of JDE ASP set vice for
          up to six months.
     6.   Provide CNC (application technical) and IT (operational) support.
     7.   Increase the capacity of the Enterprise serve to 72.8Gb, using four
          18.2 internal drives. The one time cost of this capacity increase will
          be passed on to NetScreen through a Change Request.

During Phase I, NetScreen is to define applications in addition to JDE, if any,
running on the current ASP at AristaSoft/Exodus for migration to an IBM Hosting
facility; those additional applications requirements will be managed through the
Change Control Process JDE application fixes to be installed, and negotiate a
Phase II agreement covering long-term ASP services to be provided by IBM for
NetScreen.

     Attachments




                                       3

<PAGE>

     Some Products and Services have terms in addition to those IBM specifies in
     this Agreement. IBM provides the additional terms in documents called
     "Attachments" which are also part of this Agreement. Depending upon their
     country of use, Attachments may have different names. Attachments will be
     signed by both of us if requested by either of us.

     Transaction Documents

     For each business transaction, IBM will provide you with the appropriate
     "Transaction Documents" that confirm the specific details of the
     transaction. Transaction Documents are also part of this Agreement.
     Transaction Documents will be signed by both of us if requested by either
     of us. The following are examples of Transaction Documents with examples of
     the information they may contain: following are examples of Transaction
     Documents, with examples of the information they may contain:

     1.   addenda (contract-period duration, start date, and total quantity);

     2.   change authorizations (description of agreed changes to an existing
          Service statement of work);

     3.   exhibits (eligible Products by category);

     4.   invoices (item, quantity, and amount due);

     5.   statements of work (scope of Services, responsibilities, deliverables,
          completion criteria, estimated schedule or contract period, and
          charges); and

     6.   supplements (Machine quantity and type ordered, price, estimated
          shipment date, and warranty period).

     Conflicting Terms

     If there is a conflict among the terms in the various documents, those of
     an Attachment prevail over those of this Agreement. The terms of a
     Transaction Document prevail over those of both of these documents.

     IBM's Acceptance of Your Order

     A Product or Service becomes subject to this Agreement when IBM accepts
     your order by doing any of the following:

     1.   sending you a Transaction Document;

     2.   shipping the Machine or making the Program available to you; or

     3.   providing the Service.

     Your Acceptance of Additional Terms

     You accept the additional terms in an Attachment or Transaction Document by
     doing any of the following:




                                       4

<PAGE>

     1.   signing the Attachment or Transaction Document;

     2.   using the Product or Service, or allowing others to do so; or

     3.   making any payment for the Product or Service.

1.3  Delivery

     IBM will try to meet your delivery requirements for Products and Services
     you order, and will inform you of their status. Transportation charges, if
     applicable, will be specified in a Transaction Document.

1.4  Charges and Payment

     The amount payable for a Product or Service will be based on one or more of
     the following types of charges:

     1.   one-time (for example, the price of a Machine);

     2.   recurring (for example, a periodic charge for Programs or measured use
          of Services);

     3.   time and materials (for example, charges for hourly Services); or

     4.   fixed price (for example, a specific amount agreed to between us for a
          custom Service).

     Depending on the particular Product, Service, or circumstance, additional
     charges may apply (such as special handling or travel related expenses).
     IBM will inform you in advance whenever additional charges apply.

     Recurring charges for a Product begin on (or, in some countries, after) its
     Date of Installation. Charges for Services are billed as IBM specifies
     which may be in advance, periodically during the performance of the
     Service, or after the Service is completed.

     Amounts are due upon receipt of invoice and payable as IBM specifies in a
     Transaction Document. You agree to pay accordingly, including any late
     payment fee.

     It any authority imposes a duty, tax, levy, or fee, excluding those based
     on IBM's net income, upon any transaction under the Agreement, then you
     agree to pay that amount as specified in an invoice or supply exemption
     documentation. You are responsible for personal property taxes for each
     Product from the date IBM ships it to you.

     One-time and recurring charges may be based on measurements of actual or
     authorized use (for example, number of users or processor size for
     Programs, meter readings for maintenance Services or connect time for
     network Services). You agree to provide actual usage data if IBM specifies.
     If you make changes to your environment that impact use charges (for
     example, change processor size or configuration for Programs), you agree to


                                       5

<PAGE>

     promptly notify IBM and pay any applicable charges. Recurring charges will
     be adjusted accordingly. Unless IBM agrees otherwise, IBM does not give
     credits or refunds for charges already due or paid. In the event that IBM
     changes the basis of measurements, its terms for changing charges will
     apply.

     IBM may increase recurring charges for Products and Services, as well as
     labor rates and minimums for Services provided under the Agreement, by
     giving you three months' written notice. As increase applies on the first
     day of the invoice or charging period on or after the effective date IBM
     specifies in the notice.

     IBM may increase one-time charges without notice. However, an increase to
     one-time charges does not apply to you if 1) IBM receives your order before
     the announcement date of the increase and 2) one of the following occurs
     within three months after IBM's receipt of your order:

     1.   IBM ships you the Machine or makes the Program available to you;

     2.   you make an authorized copy of a Program or distribute a chargeable
          component of a Program to another Machine; or

     3.   a Program's increased use charge becomes due.

     You receive the benefit of a decrease in charges for amounts which become
     due on or after the effective date of the decrease.

     Services for which you prepay must be used within the applicable contract
     period. Unless IBM specifies otherwise, IBM does not give credits or
     refunds for unused prepaid Services.

1.5  Changes to the Agreement Terms

     For a change to the terms of this Agreement (Parts 1 through 7) to be
     valid, both of us must sign it.

     In order to maintain flexibility in our business relationship however, IBM
     may change the terms of its Product and Service offerings by giving you
     three months' written notice. These changes are not retroactive. They
     apply, as of the effective date IBM specifies in the notice, only to new
     orders, renewals, and on-going transactions that do not expire. For
     on-going transactions with a defined renewable contract period, you may
     request that IBM defer the change effective date until the end of the
     current contract period if 1) the change affects your current contract
     period and 2) you consider the change unfavorable. Changes to charges for
     Products and Services will be implemented as described in the Charges and
     Payment section above.

     Additional or different terms in any written communication from you (such
     as an order) are void.

1.6  IBM Business Partners

     IBM has signed agreements with certain organizations (called "IBM Business
     Partners") to promote, market, and support certain Products and Services.
     When you order IBM Products or Services (marketed to you by IBM Business
     Partners) under this Agreement, IBM confirms that it is responsible for
     providing the Products or Services to you under the warranties and other
     terms of this Agreement. IBM is not responsible for 1) the actions of IBM
     Business Partners 2) any additional obligations they have to you, or 3) any
     products or services that they supply to you under their agreements.

1.7  Mutual Responsibilities

     Both of us agree that under this Agreement:

     1.   neither of us grants the other the right to use its (or any of its
          Enterprise's) trademarks, trade names, or other designations in any
          promotion of publication without prior written consent;

     2.   all information exchanged is non-confidential. If either of us
          requires the exchange of confidential information, it will be made
          under a signed confidentiality agreement;

     3.   each of us is free to enter into similar agreements with others;

     4.   each of us grants the other only the licenses and rights specified. No
          other licenses or rights (including licenses or rights under patents)
          are granted;

     5.   each of us may communicate with the other by electronic means and such
          communication is acceptable as a signed writing to the extent
          permissible under applicable law. An identification code (called a
          "user ID") contained in an electronic document is sufficient to verify
          the sender's identity and the document's authenticity;

     6.   each of us will allow the other reasonable opportunity to comply
          before it claims that the other has not met its obligations;

     7.   neither of us will bring a legal action more than two years after the
          cause of action arose unless otherwise provided by applicable law
          without the possibility of contractual waiver or limitation;

     8.   neither of us is responsible for failure to fulfill any obligations
          due to causes beyond its control; and

     9.   neither of us may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without
          the prior written consent of the other. Any attempt to do so is void.
          Neither of us will unreasonably withhold such consent. The assignment
          of this Agreement, in whole or in part, within the Enterprise of which
          either of us is a part or to a successor organization by merger or
          acquisition does not require the consent of




                                       7

<PAGE>

          the other. It is not considered an assignment for IBM to divest a
          portion of its business in a manner that similarly affects all of its
          customers.

1.8  Your Other Responsibilities

     You agree:

     1.   not to resell any Service without IBM's prior written consent. Any
          attempt to do so is void;

     2.   that this Agreement will not create any right to cause of action for
          any third party, nor will IBM be responsible for any third party
          claims against you except as described in the Patents and Copyrights
          section below or as permitted by the Limitation of Liability section
          below for bodily injury (including death) or damage to real or
          tangible personal property for which IBM is legally liable;

     3.   to acquire Machines with the intent to use them within your Enterprise
          and not for reselling, leasing, or transferring to a third party,
          unless either of the following applies -

          a.   you are arranging lease-back financing for the Machines, or

          b.   you purchase them without any discount or allowance, and do not
               remarket them in competition with IBM's authorized remarketers;

     4.   to allow IBM to install mandatory engineering changes (such as those
          required for safety) on a Machine. Any parts IBM removes become IBM's
          property. You represent that you have the permission from the owner
          and any lien holders to transfer ownership and possession of removed
          parts to IBM;

     5.   that you are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the
          Products and Services;

     6.   to provide IBM with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
          facilities for IBM to fulfill its obligations;

     7.   to allow International Business Machines Corporation and entities
          within its Enterprise to store and use your contact information,
          including names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses, anywhere they do
          business. Such information will be processed and used in connection
          with our business relationship, and may be provided to contractors,
          Business Partners, and assignees of International Business Machines
          Corporation and entities within its Enterprise for uses consistent
          with their collective business activities, including communicating
          with you (for example, for processing orders, for promotions, and for
          market research); and

     8.   to comply with all applicable export and import laws and regulations.

1.9  Patents and Copyrights

     For purposes of this section, the term "Product" includes Materials,
     Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code.

     If a third party claims that a Product IBM provides to you infringes that
     party's patent or copyright, IBM will defend you against that claim at its
     expense and pay all costs, damages, and attorney's fees that a court
     finally awards or that are included in a settlement approved by IBM,
     provided that you:

     1.   promptly notify IBM in writing of the claim; and

     2.   allow IBM to control, and cooperate with IBM in, the defense and any
          related settlement negotiations.

     If such a claim is made or appears likely to be made, you agree to permit
     IBM to enable you to continue to use the Product, or to modify it, or
     replace it with one that is at least functionally equivalent. If IBM
     determines that none of these alternatives is reasonably available, you
     agree to return the Product to IBM on its written request. IBM will then
     give you a credit equal to:

     1.   for a Machine, your net book value provided you have followed
          generally-accepted accounting principles;

     2.   for a Program, the amount paid by you or 12 months' charges (whichever
          is less); and

     3.   for Materials, the amount you paid IBM for the creation of the
          Materials.

     This is IBM's entire obligation to you regarding any claim of infringement.

     Claims for Which IBM is Not Responsible

     IBM has no obligation regarding any claim based on any of the following:

     1.   anything you provide which is incorporated into a Product or IBM's
          compliance with any designs, specifications, or instructions provided
          by you or by a third party on your behalf;

     2.   your modification of a Product, or a Program's use in other than its
          Specified Operating Environment;

     3.   the combination, operation, or use of a Product with other Products
          not provided by IBM as a system, or the combination, operation of use
          of a Product with any product, data, apparatus, or business method
          that IBM did not provide, or the distribution, operation or use of a
          Product for the benefit of a third party outside your Enterprise; or


                                       9

<PAGE>

     4.   infringement by a non-IBM Product alone.

1.10 Limitation of Liability

     Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM's part or other
     liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such
     instance, regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim
     damages from IBM (including fundamental breach, negligence,
     misrepresentation, or other contract or tort claim), IBM is liable for no
     more than:

     1.   payments referred t in the Patents and Copyrights section above;

     2.   damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real
          property and tangible personal property; and

     3.   the amount of any other actual direct damages up to the greater of
          U.S. $100,000 (or equivalent in local currency) or the charges (if
          recurring, 12 months' charges apply) for the Product or Service that
          is the subject of the claim. For purposes of this item, the term
          "Product" includes Materials, Machine Code, and Licensed Internal
          Code.

     This limit also applies to any of IBM's subcontractors and Program
     developers. It is the maximum for which IBM and its subcontractors and
     Program developers are collectively responsible.

     Items for Which IBM is Not Liable

     Under no circumstances is IBM, its subcontractors, or Program developers
     liable for any of the following even if informed of their possibility:

     1.   loss of, or damage to, data;

     2.   special, incidental, or indirect damages or for any economic
          consequential damages; or

     3.   lost profits, business, revenue, goodwill, or anticipated savings.

1.11 Agreement Termination

     Either of us may terminate this Agreement on written notice to the other
     following the expiration or termination of the terminating party's
     obligations.

     Either of us may terminate this Agreement if the other does not comply with
     any of its terms, provided the one who is not complying is given written
     notice and reasonable time to comply.


                                       10

<PAGE>

     Any terms of this Agreement which by their nature extend beyond the
     Agreement termination remain in effect until fulfilled, and apply to both
     of our respective successors and assignees.

1.12 Geographic Scope

     The rights, duties, and obligations of each of us are valid only in the
     country in which the transaction is performed or, if IBM agrees, the
     country where the Product is placed in productive use, except that all
     licenses are valid as specifically granted.

1.13 Governing Law

     Both you and IBM consent to the application of the laws of the country in
     which the transaction is performed to govern, interpret, and enforce all of
     your and IBM's rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in
     any manner to, the subject matter of this Agreement, without regard to
     conflict of law principles.

     In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or
     unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement remain in full
     force and effect.

     Nothing in this Agreement affects any statutory rights of consumers that
     cannot be waived or limited by contract.

     The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of
     Goods does not apply.

IBM International Customer Agreement

Part 2

- Warranties

2.1  The IBM Warranties.

     Unless IBM specifies otherwise, the following warranties apply only in the
     country of acquisition.

     Warranties for IBM Machines

     For each IBM Machine, IBM warrants that it:

     1.   is free from defects in materials and workmanship; and

     2.   conforms to its Specifications.

     The warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing
     on its Date of Installation. During the warranty period, IBM provides
     repair and exchange Service for the Machine, without charge, under the type
     of Service IBM designates for the Machine.


                                       11

<PAGE>

     If a Machines does not function as warranted during the warranty period and
     IBM is unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with one that is
     at least functionally equivalent, you may return it to IBM and your money
     will be refunded.

     Following expiration of the warranty period all IBM Machines you acquire
     under this Agreement will automatically receive maintenance Service for a
     charge unless you request in writing that this Service not be provided.

     Additional terms regarding Service for Machines during and after the
     warranty period are contained in Part 5.

     Warranty for IBM Programs

     For each warranted IBM Program, IBM warrants that when it is used in the
     Specified Operating Environment, it will conform to its Specifications.

     The warranty period for a Program expires when its Program Services are no
     longer available. During the warranty period, IBM provides defect-related
     Program Services without charge. Program Services are available for a
     warranted Program for at least one year following its general availability.

     If a Program does not function as warranted during the first year after you
     obtain your license and IBM is unable to make it do so, you may return the
     Program and your money will be refunded. To be eligible, you must have
     obtained your license while Program Services (regardless of the remaining
     duration) were available for it. Additional terms regarding Program
     Services are contained in part 4.

     Warranty for IBM Services

     For each IBM Service, IBM warrants that IBM performs it:

     1.   using reasonable care and skill; and

     2.   according to its current description (including any completion
          criteria) contained in this Agreement, an Attachment, or a Transaction
          Document.

     Warranty for Systems

     Where IBM provides Products to you as a system IBM warrants that they are
     compatible and will operate with one another. This warranty is in addition
     to IBM's other applicable warranties.

2.2  Extent of Warranty

     The warranties stated above will not apply to the extent that there has
     been misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating
     environment, operation in other than the Specified Operating Environment,
     improper maintenance by you, or failure




                                       12

<PAGE>

     caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible. With respect to
     Machines, the warranty is voided by removal or alteration of Machine or
     parts identification labels.

     THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE ALL OTHER
     WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED
     TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR
     A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

2.3  Items Not Covered by Warranty

     IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Product or
     Service or that IBM will correct all defects,

     IBM will identify IBM Products that it does not warrant.

     Unless IBM specifies otherwise, it provides Materials, non-IBM Products,
     and non-IBM Services WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND. However, non-IBM
     manufacturers, suppliers, or publishers may provide their own warranties to
     you.

IBM International Customer Agreement

Part 3

- Machines

3.1  Title and Risk of Loss

     IBM transfers title to a Machine to you or, if you choose, your lessor,
     upon payment of all the amounts due. For a feature, conversion, or upgrade
     involving the removal of parts which become IBM's properly, IBM reserves
     transfer of title until IBM receives payment of all the amounts due and the
     removed parts.

     IBM bears the risk of loss for the Machine up to and including its Date of
     Installation. Thereafter, you assume the risk.

3.2  Production Status

     Each IBM Machine is manufactured from parts that may be new or used. In
     some cases, a Machine may not be new and may have been previously
     installed. Regardless, IBM's appropriate warranty terms apply.

3.3  Installation

     You agree to provide an environmental meeting the specified requirements
     for the Machine.

     IBM has standard installation procedures. IBM will successfully complete
     these procedures before it considers an IBM Machine (other than a Machine
     for which you defer installation or a Customer-set-up Machine) installed.

     You are responsible for installing a Customer-set-up Machine and, unless
     IBM agrees otherwise, a non-IBM Machine.

     Machine Features, Conversion and Upgrades

     IBM sells features, conversions and upgrades for installation on Machines,
     and, in certain instances, only for installation on a designated,
     serial-numbered Machine. Many of these transactions involve the removal of
     parts and their return to IBM. As applicable, you represent that you have
     the permission from the owner and any lien holders to 1) install features,
     conversions and upgrades 2) transfer ownership and possession of removed
     parts (which become IBM's property) to IBM. You further represent that all
     removed parts are genuine, unaltered, and in good working order. A part
     that replaces a removed part will assume the warranty or maintenance
     Service status of the replaced part. You agree to allow IBM to install the
     feature, conversion, or upgrade within 30 days of its delivery. Otherwise,
     IBM may terminate the transaction and you must return the feature,
     conversion, or upgrade to IBM at your expense.


                                       14

<PAGE>

3.4  Machine Code and Licensed Internal Code

     Machine Code is licensed under the terms of the agreement provided with it
     and this Agreement.

     Certain Machines IBM specifics (called "Specific Machines") use Licensed
     Internal Code (called "LIC"). International Business Machines Corporation,
     one of the entities within its Enterprise, or a third party owns LIC
     including all copyrights in LIC and all copies of LIC (this includes the
     original LIC, copies of the original LIU, and copies made from copies). LIC
     is copyrighted and licensed (not sold).

     IBM will identify each Specific Machine in a Transaction Document. If you
     are the rightful possessor of a Specific Machine, IBM grants you a license
     to use the LIC (or any replacement IBM provides) on, or in conjunction
     with, only the Specific Machine, designated by serial number, for which the
     LIC is provided. IBM licenses the LIC to only one rightful possessor at a
     time.

     Under each license, IBM authorizes you to do only the following:

     1.   execute the LIC to enable the Specific Machine to function according
          to its Specifications;

     2.   make a backup or archival copy of the LIC (unless IBM makes one
          available for your use), provided you reproduce the copyright notice
          end any other legend of ownership on the copy. You may use the copy
          only to replace the original when necessary and

     3.   execute and display the LIC as necessary to maintain the Specific
          Machine.

     You agree to acquire any replacement for, or additional copy of, LIC
     directly from IBM in accordance with IBM's standard policies and practices.
     You also agree to use that LIC under these terms.

     You may transfer possession of the LIC to another party only with the
     transfer of the Specific Machine. If you do so, you must 1) destroy all
     your copies of the LIC that were not provided by IBM, 2) either give the
     other party all your IBM-provided copies of the LIC or destroy them, and 3)
     notify the other party of these terms. IBM licenses the other party when
     that party accepts these terms by initial use of the LIC. These terms apply
     to all LIC you acquire from any source.

     Your license terminates when you no longer rightfully possess the Specific
     Machine.


                                       15

<PAGE>

     Actions You Inlay Not Take

     You agree to use the LIC only as authorized above. You may not do, for
     example, any of the following:

     1.   otherwise copy, display, transfer, adapt, modify, or distribute the
          LIC (electronically or otherwise), except as IBM may authorize in the
          Specific Machine's Specifications or in writing to you;

     2.   reverse assemble, reverse compile, or otherwise translate the LIC
          unless expressly permitted by applicable law without the possibility
          of contractual waiver.

     3.   sublicense or assign the license for the LIC; or

     4.   lease the LIC or any copy of it.

IBM International Customer Agreement

Part 4

- Programs

4.1  License

     When IBM accepts your order, IBM grants you a nonexclusive, nontransferable
     license to use the Program in the country in which the transaction is
     performed. Programs are owned by International Business Machines
     Corporation, one of the entities within its Enterprise, or a third party
     and are copyrighted and licensed (not sold).

4.2  License Details

     Under each license, IBM authorizes you to:

     1.   use the Program's machine-readable portion on only the Designated
          Machine. If the Designated Machine is inoperable, you may use another
          machine temporarily. If the Designated Machine cannot assemble or
          compile the Program, you may assemble or compile the Program on
          another machine.

          If you change a Designated Machine previously identified to IBM, you
          agree to notify IBM of the charge did its effective date;

     2.   use the Program to the extent of authorizations you have acquired;

     3.   make and Install copies of the Program, to support the level of use
          authorized, provided you reproduce the copyright notices and any other
          legends of ownership on each copy or partial copy, and

     4.   use any portion of the Program IBM 1) provides in source form, or 2)
          marks restricted (for example, "Restricted Materials of IBM") only
          to-

          a.   resolve problems related to the use of the Program, and

          b.   modify the Program so that It will work together with other
               products.

     You agree to comply with any additional terms IBM may place on a Program.
     IBM identifies these in the Program's Specifications or in a Transaction
     Document.

     Actions You May Not Take

     You agree not to:

     1.   reverse assemble, reverse compile, or otherwise translate the Program
          unless expressly permitted by applicable law without the possibility
          of contractual waiver; or


                                       17

<PAGE>

     2.   sublicense, assign, rent, or lease the Program.

4.3  Program Components Not Used on the Designated Machine

     Some Programs have components that ore designed for use on machines other
     than the Designated Machine on which the Program is used. You may make
     copies of a component and its documentation in support of your authorized
     use of the Program. For chargeable components, you agree to notify IBM of
     the component's actual date of distribution which is its Date of
     Installation.

4.4  Distributed System License Option

     For some programs, you may make a copy under a Distributed System License
     Option (called a "DGLO" copy). IBM charges less for a DSLO copy than for
     the original license (called the "Basic" license). In return for the lesser
     charge, you agree to do the following while licensed under a DSLO:

     1.   have a Basic license for the Program;

     2.   provide problem documentation and receive Program Services (if any)
          only through the location of the Basic license; and

     3.   distribute to, and install on, the DSLO's Designated Machine, any
          release, correction, or bypass that IBM provides for the Basic
          license.

4.5  Program Testing

     IBM provided a testing period for certain Programs to help you evaluate if
     they meet your needs. If IBM offers a testing period, it will start 1) the
     second business day after the Program's standard transit allowance period,
     or 2) on another date specified in a Transaction Document. IBM will inform
     you of the duration of the Program's testing period.

4.6  Program Protection

     For each Program, you agree to:

     1.   ensure that anyone who uses it (accessed either locally or remotely)
          does so only for your authorized use and complies with the IBM's terms
          regarding Programs; and

     2.   maintain a record of all copies and provide it to IBM at this request.

4.7  Program Services

     IBM provides Program Services for warranted Programs and for selected other
     Programs. If IBM can reproduce your reported problem in the Specified
     Operating Environment,

IBM International Customer Agreement

Part 5

- Services

5.1  IBM Services

     Services may be either standard offerings or customized to specific
     requirements.

5.2  Personnel

     Each of us is responsible for the supervision, direction, control, and
     compensation of our respective personnel.

     IBM reserves the right to determine the assignment of its personnel.

     IBM may subcontract a Service, or any part of it, to subcontractors
     selected by IBM.

5.3  Materials Ownership and License

     IBM will specify Materials to be delivered to you. IBM will identify them
     as being "Type I Materials," "Type II Materials," or otherwise as we both
     agree. If not specified, Materials will be considered Type II Materials.

     Type I Materials are those, created during the Service performance period,
     in which you will have all right, title and interest (including ownership
     of copyright). IBM will retain one coy of the Materials. You grant IBM 1)
     an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, paid-up license to use, execute,
     reproduce, display, perform, distribute (internally and externally) copies
     of, and prepare derivative works based on, Type I Materials and 2) the
     right to authorize others to do any of the former.

     Type II Materials are those, created during the Service performance period
     or otherwise (such as those that preexist the Service), in which IBM or
     third parties have all right, title, and interest (including ownership of
     copyright). IBM will deliver one copy of the specified Materials to you.
     IBM grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide, paid-up license to
     use, execute, reproduce, display, perform, and distribute, within your
     Enterprise only, copies of Type II Materials.

5.4  Automatic Service Renewal

     Renewable Service renew automatically for a same length contract period
     unless either of us provides written notification (at least one month prior
     to the end of the current contract period) to the other of its decision not
     to renew.


                                       20

<PAGE>

5.5  Termination and Withdrawal

     Either of us may terminate a Service if the other does not meet its
     obligations concerning the Service.

     You may terminate a Service, on notice to IBM provided you have met all
     minimum requirements and paid any adjustment chares specified in the
     applicable Attachments and Transaction Documents. For a maintenance
     Service, you may terminate without adjustment charge provided any of the
     following circumstances occur:

     1.   you permanently remove the eligible Product, for which the Service is
          provided, from productive use within your enterprise;

     2.   the eligible location, for which the Service is provided, is no longer
          controlled by you (for example, because of sale or closing of the
          facility); or

     3.   the Machine has been under maintenance Service for at least six months
          and you give IBM one month's written notice prior to terminating the
          maintenance Service.

     You agree to pay IBM for 1) all Services IBM provides and any Product and
     Materials IBM delivers through Service termination, 2) all expenses IBM
     incurs through Service termination, and 3) any charges IBM incurs in
     terminating the Service.

     IBM may withdraw a Service or support for an eligible Product on three
     months' written notice to you. If IBM withdraws a Service for which you
     have prepaid and IBM has not yet fully provided it to you, IBM will give
     you a prorated refund.

     Any terms which by their nature extend beyond termination or withdrawal
     remain in effect until fulfilled and apply to respective successors and
     assignees.

5.6  Service for Machine (during and after warranty)

     IBM provides certain types of Service to keep Machines in, or restore them
     to, conformance with their Specifications. IBM will inform you of the
     available types of Service for a Machine based on its county of
     installation. At its discretion, IBM will 1) either repair or exchange the
     failing Machine and 2) provide the Service either at your location or a
     service center.

     When the type of Service requires that you deliver the failing Machine to
     IBM, you agree to ship it suitably packaged (prepaid unless IBM specifies
     otherwise) to a location IBM designates. After IBM has repaired or
     exchanged the Machine, IBM will return it to you at its expense unless IBM
     specifies otherwise. IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your
     Machine while it is 1) in IBM's possession or 2) in transit in those cases
     where IBM is responsible for the transportation charges.

     You agree to:


                                       21

<PAGE>

     1.   obtain authorization fro the owner to have IBM service a Machine that
          you do not own; and

     2.   where applicable, before IBM provides Service -

          a.   follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service
               request procedures that IBM provides,

          b.   secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine, and

          c.   inform IBM of changes in a Machine's location.

     When Service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item IBM
     replaces becomes its property and the replacement becomes yours. You
     represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered. The replacement
     may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least functionally
     equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the warranty or
     maintenance Service status of the replaced item. Before IBM exchanges a
     Machine or part, you agree to remove all features, parts, options,
     alterations, and attachments not under IBM's service. You also agree to
     ensure that the item is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
     prevent its exchange.

     Some parts of IBM Machines are designated as Customer Replaceable Units
     (called "CRUs"), e.g., keyboards, memory, or hard disk drives. IBM provides
     CRUs to you for replacement by you. You must return all defective CRUs to
     IBM within 30 days of your receipt of the replacement CRU. You are
     responsible for downloading designated Machine Code and Licensed Internal
     Code updates from an IBM Internet Web site or from other electronic media,
     and following the instructions that IBM provides.

     Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM services must be installed on a
     Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated, serial-numbered
     Machine and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible with the feature,
     conversion, or upgrade.

     Repair and exchange Service does not cover:

     1.   accessories, supply items, and certain parts, such as batteries,
          frames, and covers;

     2.   Machines damaged by misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable
          physical or operating environment, or improper maintenance by you;

     3.   Machines with removed or altered Machine or parts identification
          labels;

     4.   failures caused by a product for which IBM is not responsible; or

     5.   service of Machine alternations.

     IBM manages and installs selected engineering changes that apply to IBM
     Machines and may also perform preventive maintenance.


                                       22

<PAGE>

     IBM provides maintenance Service for selected non- IBM Machines.

     Warranty Service Upgrade

     For certain Machines, you ay select a Service upgrade from the standard
     type of warranty Service for the Machine. IBM charges for the Service
     upgrade during the warranty period.

     You may not terminate the Service upgrade or transfer it to another Machine
     during the warranty period. When the warranty period ends, the Machine will
     convert to maintenance Service at the same type of Service you selected for
     warranty Service upgrade.

5.7  Automatic Maintenance Coverage (following warranty)

     All IBM Machines you acquire under this Agreement will automatically be
     covered by billable maintenance Service, unless you request otherwise in
     writing, following expiration of their warranty. The type of Service will
     be that provider for IBM Machines of the same type installed at that
     location. If there are no similar IBM Machines, then the type of Service
     will be the basic Service available for that Machine type. You may cancel
     the automatic coverage by notifying IBM in writing within one month after
     the date of the Machine's first maintenance Service invoice. However, you
     will be charged for any maintenance Service which IBM has performed at your
     request.

5.8  Other Maintenance Coverage

     Whenever you order maintenance Service for Machines that are not subject to
     automatic maintenance coverage, IBM will inform you of the date on which
     maintenance Service will begin. IBM may inspect the Machine within one
     month following that date. If the Machine is not in an acceptable condition
     for service, you may have IBM restore it for a charge. Alternatively, you
     may withdraw your request for maintenance Service. However, you will be
     charged for any maintenance service which IBM has performed at your
     request.

     a Transaction Document.

     Adjustments, taxes and additional charges chargeable to you under this
     Agreement may be billed subsequent to shipment and are payable in full, in
     the currency specified in the relevant Transaction Document, within 30 days
     of the date of such billing.

     International Business Machines Corporation, or its subsidiary providing
     Products to you, may cancel this Agreement or any order under it without
     liability on its part if you fail to provide cash prepayment or to
     establish a letter of credit in accordance with the provisions specified in
     the relevant Transaction Document.

     You will bear the full cost and responsibility for obtaining all necessary
     consents from any government or related authority to enable you to clear
     the Machines from customs for importation into the country of installation.

     1.12 Geographic Scope

     Vienna (Vienna Rules) by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with
     these rules. The arbitration will be held in Vienna, Austria, and the
     official language of the proceedings will be English. The decision of the
     arbitrators will be final and binding upon both parties. Therefore,
     pursuant to paragraph 596(2) of the Austrian Code of Civil Procedure, the
     parties expressly waive the application of paragraph 595(1) figure 7 of the
     Code. IBM may, however, institute proceedings in a competent court in the
     country of installation.

     In Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam disputes and differences arising out of or
     in connection with this Agreement shall be finally settled by arbitration
     which shall be held in Singapore in accordance wit the Rules of the
     International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The arbitrator or arbitrators
     designated in conformity with those rules shall have power to rule on their
     own competence and on the validity of the Agreement to submit to
     arbitration. The arbitration award shall be final and binding for the
     parties without appeal and the arbitral award shall be in writing and set
     forth the findings of fact and the conclusions of law.

     All proceedings shall be conducted, including all documents presented in
     such proceedings, in the English language. The number of arbitrators shall
     be three, with each side to the dispute being entitled to appoint one
     arbitrator.

     The two arbitrators appointed by the parties shall appoint a third
     arbitrator before proceeding upon the reference. The third arbitrator shall
     act as chairman of the proceedings. Vacancies in the post of chairman shall
     be filled by the president of the ICC. Other vacancies shall be filled by
     the respective nominating party. Proceedings shall continue from the stage
     they were at when the vacancy occurred.

     If one of the parties refuses or otherwise fails to appoint an arbitrator
     within 30 days of the date the other party appoints its, the first
     appointed arbitrator shall be the sole arbitrator, provided that the
     arbitrator was validly and properly appointed.

     The English language version of this Agreement prevails over any other
     language version.

     In Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania all disputes arising in connection with
     this Agreement will be finally settled in arbitration. Each party will
     appoint one arbitrator and they will jointly appoint the chairman. If they
     cannot agree on the chairman, then the chairman will be appointed by the
     Central Chamber of commerce in Helsinki. In the arbitration, the Finnish
     law on arbitration will be adhered to. The arbitrators will come together,
     and the arbitration will take place, in Helsinki. The official language of
     the proceedings will be English.

     In the People's Republic of China any disputes arising from or in
     connection with this Agreement will first be resolved through friendly
     consultation, failing which either of us has the right to submit the
     dispute to the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration
     Commission in Beijing, the PRC, for arbitration in accordance with its
     arbitration rules in force at the time. The arbitration tribunal will
     consist of three

     arbitrators. The language to be used therein will be English and Chinese.
     An arbitral award will be final and binding on all the parties, and will be
     enforceable under the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of
     Foreign Arbitral Awards (1958). The arbitration fee will be borne by the
     losing party unless otherwise determined by the arbitral award. During the
     course of arbitration, this Agreement will continue to be performed except
     for the part which the parties are disputing and which is undergoing
     arbitration.

               for actual damages for any one Default will not in any event

<PAGE>

perform any of its obligations (including, for example, to meet service levels)
under this Agreement, if such a failure is the result, directly or indirectly,

the express written consent of the other, except as may be required by law or
governmental rule or regulation, as explicitly stated otherwise in this
Agreement, or to establish a party's rights under this Agreement; provided,
however, that if either party seeks to disclose for reasons not requiring the
other party's consent, the disclosing party will limit the disclosure to the
extent required and will allow the other party to review the information
disclosed and will apply, where available, for confidentiality, protective
orders and the like. Any review by either party under this Section will not be
construed to make such party responsible for the content of the disclosure.
Notwithstanding the above, IBM/Local IBM or Mfr. may disclose the terms and
conditions of this Agreement to a Related Company.

14.0 Relationship of the Parties

purpose, and neither party has the authority to, and shall not make, any
warranties or representations or create any obligations on behalf of the other

1.0    Purpose

       This is the Statement of Work for USA (the "SOW-A") and other USA
       Attachments (the "A-Attachments") for incorporation into the
       International Technical Support Agreement


                                       81

<PAGE>

       (the "Agreement") Number MW00033 between Mfr. Organizational Entity for
       USA (hereinafter "Mfr" or "NetScreen") and IBM Corporation for USA
       (hereinafter "IBM").

       The SOW-A and A-Attachments describe the Help Desk and Technical Support
       ("HD&TS") services and the responsibilities of both Mfr and IBM.

       The term of this SOW-A runs concurrently with the term of the ITSA unless
       the SOW-A is sooner terminated. IBM may terminate all or part of the
       SOW-A and/or one or more A-Attachments upon ninety (90) days prior
       written notice to Mfr.

       IBM intends to provide the following service to Mfr end users, and Mfr
       agrees to support such service by providing certain Mfr deliverables as
       required and described by the SOW-A and A-Attachments. The services to be
       provided are Help Desk and Technical Support ("HD&TS") Services.

       Mfr will be responsible for overall end user satisfaction for services
       provided under the SOW-A and A-Attachments.

2.0    Services Implementation

       IBM requires an implementation period of up to thirty (30) days from the
       effective date of the SOW-A to implement HD&TS services.

       IBM will notify Mfr in writing when the implementation period has elapsed
       or is complete and IBM is ready to commence with HD&TS services.

       Successful implementation by IBM is contingent upon Mfr's timely delivery
       of all Mfr deliverables (described in the SOW-A and A-Attachments) deemed
       necessary by IBM for successful commencement of HD&TS services.

2.1    Due Diligence/Implementation Period

       There will be a due diligence period which shall run concurrently with
       the implementation period. During the concurrent due
       diligence/implementation period, IBM and Mfr will jointly define and
       develop service support procedures or services as defined in both the
       SOW-A and A-Attachments. During this period:

       1. all assumptions used in the development of the SOW-A and other
       A-Attachments, and all roles and responsibilities related thereto, will
       be validated for accuracy;

       2. customized procedures will be developed to include administrative
       processes, services delivery, problem severity definitions and escalation
       procedures to assure timely resolution of all in-scope problems/requests
       managed by IBM; and

       3. an ongoing communications and management plan will be established in
       support of services agreed to by Mfr and IBM.



                                       82

<PAGE>

       Changes to the SOW-A or A-Attachments shall be processed per provisions
       in Section entitled "Changes to the Statement of Work and Attachments" of
       the SOW-A. Any discoveries and/or changes that result from the due
       diligence/implementation period may result in modification to the
       estimated schedule of delivery, charges, or other terms and conditions
       contained within the SOW-A and/or A-Attachments. IBM will provide Mfr
       with ninety (90) days prior written notice of any price adjustments.

3.0    Deliverables

       There are two types of deliverables; "Mfr deliverables" and "IBM
       deliverables", both of which are defined in the Agreement and/or the
       SOW-A.

       IBM service level objectives:

       1. Longest telephone hold waiting time of 5 minutes in the queue waiting
       for IBM service representative.

       2. Abandoned calls of less than 2%. Abandoned calls are calls terminating
       before they are answered or calls routed to voicemail.

       3. Voice messages returned within 30 minutes.

to access all Mfr end user database and problem incident information on the IBM
Problem Management System.

Mfr will also be provided with a Problem Management queue name where calls can
be sent electronically by IBMHD&TS when support by Mfr Level 3 TS needs to be
invoked.

6.0    Call Severity

Mfr end user problem incidents will be assigned a severity upon initial call
entry with concurrence from the end user. That severity will be used throughout
the length of the problem incident to determine how both Mfr and IBM respond to
the call. The end user may change the severity of the problem incident at any
time. IBM will not change the severity of the problem incident without agreement
from Mfr end user.

Severity and corresponding response will be defined as follows:

Severity 1 - Machine is down. Situation is critical. End user expects an update
to the problem incident every four (4) hours.

Severity 2 - End user is severely impacted by the performance of the machine.
Update to the problem incident will be provided to the end user every
twenty-four (24) hours.

Severity 3 - End user is moderately impacted by the performance of the machine.
Update to the problem incident will be provided to the end user every four (4)
days.

Severity 4 - End user is not impacted by the performance of the machine but
feels there is a problem that must be addressed. Update to the problem incident
will be provided to the end user every eight (8) days.

The severity levels will be included in the maintenance agreement between Mfr
and the end user, and will also be used by both Mfr and IBM service
representatives. All target dates must be adhered to based on the severity level
set by the end user.
