KFAR SAVA, Israel — April 3, 2017, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that it has secured an important first Design Win for several versions of its Bypass cards from a well-established Cyber Security customer which has now standardized on Silicom as its networking add-on solution provider. Shipments against this Design Win are expected to ramp up to approximately $1 million per year. In parallel, the customer is considering the potential use of Silicom’s vCPE appliances as part of its Cloud offering

“We are very pleased that this highly-respected Cyber Security player now recognizes Silicom as its go-to provider for networking solutions – a status that we believe will bring us more Design Wins in the future,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President & CEO. “Like much of the Cyber Security industry, this customer will soon be adding a Security as a Service Cloud offering to its portfolio, and we are working with them to include our Cloud-related solutions within it. This demonstrates that our product lines are essential building blocks for companies designing and offering systems for both the traditional market and the Cloud. In fact, many of our Cyber Security clients are active in both realms, and to match their needs, we have built an end-to-end value proposition based on second-to-none technology, unbeatable support and strong synergies across all or our product lines – and the industry is responding. As such, we believe that Cyber Security will continue being an important growth driver for our business.”
