BATM launches virtual cyber-security solution with Trend Micro

New solution expands the Group's NFV portfolio and enhances market position within key sector

BATM Advanced Communications Limited (LSE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, announces that Telco Systems ("Telco"), a high-end software development and design business within the Group's Networking & Cyber division, together with Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, have launched a software-based cybersecurity solution for deployment across virtual networks. This new virtual network function ("VNF") enhances the market position of the Group by expanding its NFV portfolio to include security solutions and it is the only vSecurity offering by a worldwide software vendor that operates on both Arm architecture and all Intel platforms.

As previously announced, the Group has established a number of partnerships in recent months with leading telecoms organisations to offer joint solutions for network virtualisation, which forms part of BATM's strategy to leverage the telecom industry transition from hardware to Network Function Virtualisation ("NFV") and Software-Defined Networking ("SDN"). This latest launch is a vSecurity VNF that is based on Telco's NFVTime, which can convert any operating system into a software-based virtual network and that comes with a broad portfolio of VNFs, and Trend Micro's Virtual Network Function Suite that offers flexible and high-performance network security functions. As a result, telecoms operators and managed service providers can seamlessly deploy a high quality network security service that provides increased performance, flexibility and cost savings on their networks, regardless of their hardware or what systems they may choose to use.

Dr Zvi Marom, Chief Executive Officer of BATM, said: "We are delighted to now be able to offer a cybersecurity solution in our NFV portfolio, which we believe is the most sophisticated option available and the only vSecurity solution provided by a worldwide vendor that can operate on both Arm and Intel platforms. Our partnership with Trend Micro, a global leader in its field, is testament to the strength of our NFV offer and the increasing momentum that we are gaining in this key target market for our networking and cyber division. We look forward to continuing to expand our portfolio to offer the most comprehensive NFV platform to telecoms operators and managed service providers globally."
