BATM enters new markets with Clavister virtual networking partnership
Virtualised cybersecurity application expands NFVTime addressable market to industrial IoT and automotive computing, marking further progress under strategic agreement with Arm
BATM (LSE: BVC), a leading provider of real-time technologies for networking solutions and medical laboratory systems, announces that Telco Systems, a wholly-owned high-end software development and design business within the Group's Networking & Cyber division, has entered into a strategic technology partnership with Clavister, a leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, to run its virtualised platform optimised for Arm-based infrastructure on the Group's NFVTime solution.
This represents the latest milestone in delivery under the Group's agreement with Arm to develop a full ecosystem of virtual network function ("VNF") services that are optimised to run on Arm's architecture and to be used by Arm partners. In addition, this partnership expands the target market for the NFVTime offering to the industrial internet of things (IoT) and automotive computing sectors where Clavister has an established position.
As part of the partnership, Clavister's virtualised cybersecurity platform will be available as a VNF service running on the operating system of the Group's NFVTime solution that can turn any commercial off-the-shelf x86 (Intel) or Arm-based hardware device into a fully operational virtual networking device. Telco Systems and Clavister will also market the joint offering, initially targeting Tier 1 telecommunications providers that have committed to a network virtualisation strategy and require Arm-ready security solutions.
Dr Zvi Marom, CEO of BATM, said: "This partnership enriches our telecoms network virtualisation offering with the addition of Clavister's high-performance cybersecurity solutions. It represents a further milestone under our agreement with Arm to develop a full ecosystem of VNFs that are optimised to run on Arm's architecture. It also extends our reach into the industrial IoT and automotive computing sectors, which are important growth markets for network virtualisation. We look forward to working with Clavister and Arm on this joint offering and to continuing to expand our broad portfolio of VNFs available on our NFVTime solution."
John Vestberg, CEO at Clavister, added: "We're very happy to join this fantastic partnership, which forms an important element of our growth strategy to work with all our technology alliance partners to their maximum potential. Clavister's Arm-based security platform will be embedded in the heart of virtualisation, IoT and automotive solutions, while partnering with Telco Systems will further strengthen our ability to execute our growth strategy in the telco sector."
Kevin Ryan, Senior Director of Software Ecosystem Development, Infrastructure Line of Business at Arm, commented: "We are continuing to develop, expand, and diversify the application ecosystem for Arm Neoverse™ platforms through collaborations with solution providers like Clavister. By working with Clavister to provide a virtualised security platform optimised for Arm-based infrastructure solutions, we enable a compelling option for fortifying cloud and networking platforms."
