HERZLIYA, Israel, August 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

SuperCom (SPCB), a Global provider of secure solutions for e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors announced today that Alvarion, a recently acquired global provider of autonomous Wi-Fi networks, and Safend, a recently acquired encryption and global data security company are collaborating to launch a new secure wireless communication platform. The new solution is expected to be released later this year.

"Enterprise organizations today are seeking to create a flexible mobile environment that allows network access for employees and guests while maintaining security in an environment where threats from within the network are just as great as external cyber-attacks," said Arie Trabelsi CEO of SuperCom. "Network vulnerability is further compounded in the 'bring your own device', or BYOD, environment. We believe there is a significant opportunity for a more straight forward, flexible and secure Wi-Fi solution and the combination of SuperCom, Safend and Alvarion is uniquely positioned to address."

By integrating Safend's cutting edge encryption and endpoint data protection internally with Alvarion's versatile Wi-Fi solution, SuperCom will create a best-of-breed solution that will enable enterprises the flexibility and mobility while incorporating enhanced registration and screening methods as well as security management and monitoring tools.

Alvarion's versatile series of Access Points enables the construction of scalable Wi-Fi networks with Quality of Service (QoS), security and high service reliability. Alvarion's product supports Passpoint™ with hotspot capability and includes a rich set of networking features for core integration with cellular and fixed-line operators. The access points are controlled and managed by the Arena cloud based controller. Our Avidity series is an evolution of Alvarion's high performance outdoor access point and it features our mature radio algorithms that together structure a sustainable network.

The solution will be available through Safend, Alvarion and SuperCom's global sales channel.
