Narus Dramatically Expands Presence in India

Service Providers in India Embrace NarusInsight Traffic Intelligence System to Secure IP Networks and Meet Regulatory Requirements

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and BANGALORE, INDIA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - Narus, Inc. announced today that a host of service providers in India have selected NarusInsight to meet government IP monitoring requirements, manage IP traffic and protect their networks from attack, significantly increasing Narus' market share in the country. This strong customer momentum is spurred by a combination of new entrants offering IP services in India, the stringent regulatory requirements, Narus' flexible and scalable solution and a strong presence in both Bangalore and Delhi for development, sales and support.

Current growth in the Indian telecommunications industry mirrors the late nineties' expansion in the United States. New service providers are emerging almost daily and more than ever, global service providers are applying for licenses to provide services in India. Due to the regulatory demands made by local government bodies, these new entrants are mandated to meet requirements for traffic monitoring, precision targeting, and network protection.

As the leading provider of real-time traffic intelligence for the protection and management of the world's largest IP networks, Narus provides security, intercept and traffic management solutions within a single, flexible system. With Narus, service providers, governments and large enterprises around the world can rapidly detect, analyze, target, mitigate any unwanted, unwarranted or malicious traffic on any size network.

Along with strong partners in India that understand the dynamic culture and share the local contacts, Narus has been able to successfully penetrate the market and garner several important customers, both domestic and international providers.

Recent domestic customer wins in India include:

--  Reliance Communications, India's foremost and truly integrated
    telecommunications service provider, has a customer base of more than 40
    million, including more than 1.3 million individual overseas retail
    customers. The company is rated among Asia's top five most valuable
    telecommunications companies, and ranks among the top 10 Asian
    telecommunications companies by number of customers. Reliance is utilizing
    NarusInsight Intercept Suite to meet the regulatory requirements for legal
    intercept.
    
--  Sify Technologies is India's pioneer and leader in Internet,
    networking and e-commerce services. The first Indian Internet company to be
    listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange, Sify provides integrated, end-to-end
    solutions for corporations and consumers, with a range of products and
    services delivered over a common Internet backbone infrastructure. Sify is
    implementing the NarusInsight Intercept Suite for government compliance.
    

"We expect our sales in India to at least double over the next 12 months and our installed customers to continue to add new Narus applications," said Chuck Meyo, vice president, Global Channels, Americas and Asia Pacific Sales, Narus. "This exponential growth pattern is due to the region's service providers seeing the value in traffic intelligence and network security. Like our customers in other parts of the world, providers in India are committed to delivering the most secure and highest quality service possible, while complying with all government requirements for monitoring certain IP traffic. Narus is committed to the Indian market. We will continue to expand our presence by growing our engineering, quality assurance, sales and customer service teams in country."
