HERZLIYA, Israel, December 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
SuperCom (SPCB), a global provider of secure solutions for the e-Government, Public Safety, HealthCare, and Finance sectors announced today that its subsidiary Safend, a data protection and cybersecurity company, received fourth quarter bookings totaling more than $1,350,000.
Safend provides enterprise organizations a broad range of competitive and well-known encryption and data protection solutions. The new orders represent license fees and recurring maintenance from new and existing customers for tens of thousands of seats.
Safend's quarterly bookings have reached an annual run rate of more than $5 million, an annual run rate similar to the average historical levels in recent years through the global channels of Wave Systems Corporation, Safend's previous parent. This annual run rate has been growing sequentially in recent quarters and is up from an annual run rate of approximately $3 million in the previous quarter.
"We have reached a meaningful milestone in Safend's integration much earlier than we original anticipated," commented Arie Trabelsi, SuperCom's President and CEO. "Since closing our acquisition of Safend in March of this year, we had to rebuild Safend's global distribution as part of SuperCom's global sales channels and have reached our $5 million annual run rate target, marking a rapid and successful integration. Similar to what we are seeing in other acquisition integrations at SuperCom, also at Safend we are encouraged by the efficient transition in R&D and operations, as well as the high level of trust and satisfaction built with our customers."
