KFAR SAVA, Israel – March 24, 2015, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: SILC) today announced that it has secured an initial Design Win from a leading cyber security company, the successful culmination of a lengthy sales effort during which the customer thoroughly evaluated Silicom’s technologies, operations and support capabilities. Through this initial win, Silicom will begin supplying high-performance 10G adapters for one of the customer’s solutions. In parallel, discussions are currently underway regarding the customer’s potential use of additional Silicom products, including other networking adapters, encryption adapters, SETAC, and IBS’s (Intelligent Bypass Solutions).

“We are excited to add this important cyber security company to our customer list – a first step that we believe will develop into a major, multi-million dollar relationship,” commented Mr. Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “This customer uses thousands of different types of cards each year in a broad range of products, with many of them needing Silicom’s ‘sweet spot’ offerings. We are confident that this customer – as so many of our 100+ clients – will grow to rely on our technological innovation, reliability, production speed and commitment to service, and will therefore turn to us again and again. We are already in talks regarding additional adapters as well as our SETAC and IBS (Intelligent Bypass) solutions, and believe that additional significant sales to this customer are just a matter of time.”
