KFAR SAVA, Israel--()--Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) today announced that it has achieved its first Design Win from a fast-growing Cyber Security company for Intelligent Bypass Switch (IBS) products that it will use as part of its security solution for a Fortune 500 healthcare company.

Before selecting Silicom for the Design Win, both the cyber security company, which specializes in intrusion prevention solutions, and its client, the giant healthcare company, evaluated and qualified Silicom’s IBS offerings.

To date, the orders that Silicom has received from this Design Win have totaled approximately $500,000, and another $500,000 order is expected to be received soon. In addition, the cyber security company has begun planning a next-generation security system that will use additional Silicom Bypass products.

“We are proud that these trend-setting companies have turned to Silicom as their source for critical Intelligent Bypass products, confirming once again the innovation of our concepts, the quality of our technology and the depth of our understanding of the Cyber space,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President & CEO.

“This Design Win is a demonstration that not only our OEM customers themselves, but also their major Enterprise and Service Provider customers recognize and demand the performance edge of our products. Consequently, we have begun to enjoy increased exposure that we believe will translate into increased sales into next-generation Cloud, SDN and NFV infrastructure systems.”
