Clavister, a leader in high-performance network security, and D-Link, the global leader in connectivity solutions for home, SMB and enterprise environments have today entered into a purchase agreement.

In a major effort to gain substantial share of the network security market, D-Link is launching a new firewall security product, the DFL-870 aimed at SMB and enterprise customers. The DFL-870 is the first product in a planned series of high-performance security products. For this new product line, D-Link has chosen Clavister to supply the full range of security software. As part of this agreement, Clavister is also appointed to supply advanced technical support and services.

D-Link is one of the market leaders in several communication product areas, including wireless networking, switches and IP cameras. In emerging markets, such as India, D-Link has a clear market leading position with over 30% of the wireless networking market.

Clavister expects the agreement to generate immediate revenues during Q4 2016. Given D-link’s market position and strong ambitions with the new product line, Clavister anticipates revenues from D-Link growing to multi-million US dollars over the next three to five years.

Jim Carlsson, CEO of Clavister said, “This purchase agreement with D-Link enables us to combine our respective strengths and expertise to deliver security solutions at a competitive price point to customers, especially in emerging markets where D-Link has a strong footprint. We look forward to working closely with D-Link in bringing the new products to market.”

ML Jean, D-Link's head of Enterprise Switches said: “The new D-Link Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall solution is a best-in-class, enterprise-grade security solution that brings together years of research and development into a single, robust end-to-end solution for businesses. Through this partnership, we expect to help boost security and peace of mind for businesses around the world. Clavister's powerful software will combine with D-Link’s unrivalled 30-year global footprint, extensive distribution channels and strong SMB and Enterprise relationships.”
