Leading Cyber Security Company Standardizes on Silicom’s High-Density Server Adapters


– Design Win Expected to Ramp Up to ~$1.5M/Yr –
– Talks Underway Regarding Silicom’s Edge Devices & Smart NICs


KFAR SAVA, Israel — February 7, 2018, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that one of its long-term customers, a rapidly-growing Cyber Security company which is now moving heavily into the processing of higher volumes of data at much higher data rates, has standardized on Silicom’s high-density server adapters with the intention of eventually using them to replace all of its lower speed/lower density adapters. With this new win, the customer’s run rate has now risen to $1 million per year, and as the migration to the higher density adapters continues, the run rate is expected to ramp up to approximately $1.5 million per year, even at current quantities.

In parallel, discussions continue regarding the customer’s potential deployment of Silicom’s edge devices and smart NICs. Uptake of any of these advanced products would significantly increase the customer’s annual purchases.

“We are pleased and proud that this fast-growth Cyber leader views Silicom as its ‘performance partner’ for dominating the high-speed/high-volume space,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President & CEO. “Our high-density adapters are up to the challenge: they handle massive volumes of data reliably at top speeds, giving the customer’s products a clear performance edge. Just as important, the customer trusts us for top-level support, manufacturing and delivery as it builds out its portfolio.

“That is why so many of our customers stay with us for the long haul, coming initially when they are small and staying with us as they grow. In essence, we become strategic design partners, helping them optimize and improve the critical throughput aspect of current and future products. Given the mind-boggling security challenges being created by the explosion of data points in the Cloud and IoT reality, we believe that Cyber Security will continue to be an important growth driver for us.”
