New office strengthens ties with clients in Middle East

Ft. Lauderdale, FL – (September 30, 2004) - CyberGuard Corporation (NASDAQ: CGFW), the technology leader in network security, today announced the opening of its Dubai office. CyberGuard now operates eight offices worldwide to serve and support its customers. The new presence will enable CyberGuard to strengthen ties with clients throughout the Middle East and Africa by providing high-quality technical support, training and consulting services closer to home. Located in Dubai Internet City, the office will serve as the central point of access to CyberGuard's technical support personnel, but will not deny clients the benefit of business services extended from the UK-based headquarters of the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

Andrew Clarke, vice president and managing director of CyberGuard EMEA, stated, "This new office clearly demonstrates our commitment to the region's information security industry and its importance to the future development of CyberGuard operations in the Middle East. We have had clients in the Middle East for more than seven years; high profile customers in the region include banks, government agencies, and financial institutions. Our team in Dubai is looking forward to introducing new offerings to our clients in the region for small, medium and larger companies in both the public and private sectors - while continuing to build close business relationships with our partners."

“We are very glad to welcome CyberGuard to the Dubai Internet City community,” said Dr. Omar Bin Sulaiman, CEO of Dubai Internet City. “With the ever-increasing importance of IT security for the smooth functioning of the knowledge economy, companies like CyberGuard have an important role to play in the industry.”

Shariq S. Hassan, a CyberGuard information security specialist, stated, “The decision to open an office in Dubai is strategic and based on the significant growth in the number of customers located in the Middle East; long-established relationships with clients in the region; and CyberGuard's excellent record of providing comprehensive service and technical support. Clients will now find it even easier to take advantage of CyberGuard's dedicated sales and technical resources for support, advice and service. Dubai-based support professionals will be immediately available to serve clients on the ground and respond to increasing client requirements.“

The new CyberGuard Middle East & Africa office is located at Dubai Internet City, First Steps, Building 1, PO Box 73000, Dubai – U.A.E. The phone number is +971 4 391 3500.
