Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), a leading
maker of high-performance network attached storage (NAS), storage area

Corporation and Computer Associates, Norman will lead sales efforts for
DNF's six rapidly expanding business units.

"We're fortunate to have an executive of Dean's caliber join our management
team," said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO of DNF. "His strengths across all areas of
sales, along with his excellent sales leadership experience within both
established and start-up organizations, will guide us through DNF's
fast-paced growth and help us take advantages of new opportunities in our
professional services, physical security and IP SAN business units."

Said Norman, "DNF impressed me immediately, both for its hardware expertise
as well as its ability to adapt quickly to new opportunities in growing
markets such as virtualization, IP video surveillance and professional
services. I'm very pleased to be a part of the company's leadership team."

enterprise client acquisition and global sales development, Norman comes to
DNF from Apani Networks, an enterprise network security software developer,
where he was vice president of sales. At Apani, he substantially increased

his tenure, he increased West Coast revenues by as much as 145 percent, and
trained and mentored a team in charge of more than 116 accounts across
North America.

Norman also served as divisional vice president of sales for Computer
Associates from 1993 to 1997, where he managed a team with product line
focus on systems management, database tools, application development and
enterprise security. In addition, he was vice president of sales for
