Federal Agencies to Benefit from Access to Solutions Providing the Highest Level of Verified Identity and Encrypted Data Protection

SAN JOSE, Calif.Dec. 17, 2020 — SPYRUS Solutions, Inc (“SPYRUS”) announced today it has signed an OEM agreement with Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCS) (“CSI”), an intelligent edge products and services company, aiming to expand its market share within security mandated industries including financial services, healthcare, and insurance. Of note, earlier this year, CSI made a strategic minority investment in SPYRUS.

Financial services, healthcare, and insurance industries are all at risk of being hacked and severity of security threats continues to grow. As enterprises adopt cloud service offerings, their data can be at even greater risk. These trends are leading enterprises across industries with strict security mandates to seek innovative security solutions to integrate risk management solutions into their operations. SPYRUS security products offer enterprise IT departments the ability to protect all sensitive data at-rest, in-motion, and in-use while all endpoints are managed, audited, or remotely destroyed if compromised.

“We are excited to provide highly secure VPN offerings using SPYRUS security products,” said Anita Kumar, chief executive officer of CSI. “As cyberattacks increase, our customers need access to solutions that provide protection of identities, data and endpoints. SPYRUS’s innovative technology helps assure customers using our remote workforce solutions that their connections are highly secure.”

As per the terms of this OEM agreement, CSI will sell the SPYRUS FIPS 140-2 level 3 certified Rosetta Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) in a tamper-proof micro-SD form factor. Rosetta HSMs offer customers military-grade NIST SP 800-171 certified encryption and easy endpoint management through the SPYRUS DevicePatrol™ platform.

The OEM agreement with CSI bring SPYRUS solutions to three of CSI’s entities: JDL Technologies, a provider and manager of information technology services in commercial, healthcare, and education markets; Ecessa, an SD-WAN solutions provider in the data communication industry; and Transition Networks, which provides physical connectivity infrastructure and services for broadband networks around the world.

“CSI is an exciting partner for SPYRUS,” said Grant Evans, chairman and chief executive officer of SPYRUS Solutions. “This OEM agreement and investment enables SPYRUS to extend its reach in security-mandated industries that require military grade encryption that is both manageable and cost effective.”
