KFAR SAVA, Israel – April 24, 2023 – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of networking and data infrastructure solutions, today announced that a Tier 1, US-based cyber security vendor has awarded Silicom two NIC Design Wins: one for an advanced encryption offload acceleration card, and the other for an FPGA-based SmartNIC. Both will be incorporated into two of the customer’s next-generation solutions designed to help its customers, including some of the world’s largest, most advanced organizations, secure and optimize their networks and applications in the cloud, on premise or at the edge. The customer has indicated that both design wins will be ramping up during the second half of this year, with mass deployment beginning in 2024.

“We are proud that that this cyber security giant is turning to Silicom for the specialized hardware it needs to build its next generation platforms,” commented Liron Eizenman, Silicom’s CEO. “This speaks volumes about the innovation of our technology, our broad portfolio, the uniqueness of our full-service ‘package’, and the reputation we have earned as the ‘go to’ source for performance-booster solutions.”
