Pctel Calls on Wunderlich Securities to Explore Strategic Directions for Pctel Secure
Jan 23, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Pctel, Inc., a company focusing on simplifying wireless and site solutions for private and public networks, announced that it had engaged Wunderlich Securities, Inc. to advise them on potential directions for Pctel Secure and its security solution called ProsettaCore.
According to a release, Wunderlich will assist Pctel in raising equity, establishing distribution partners, or finding other ways to optimize the value of the Pctel Secure assets.
"We've developed an outstanding security solution," said Marty Singer, PCTEL's Chairman and CEO. "It is clear, however, that there is a mismatch between our traditional distribution channels and the various government, military, enterprise, and SCADA markets for ProsettaCore. Wunderlich is accelerating the introduction of Pctel Secure to companies with an established interest in both the security and the mobile device management market," added Singer.
ProsettaCore includes a behavioral-based security monitor and other specialized software which runs on a smartphone and a myriad of other devices. It also includes a Policy Server which provides secure software downloads and Mobile Device Management (MDM) capabilities. The ProsettaCore solution allows a mobile device such as a phone, tablet, or tactical radio, to run in multiple modes, and to enforce multiple security policies, all without any specialized hardware. For example, a phone could have a "Personal Use" mode, and a "Secure" mode, each having different configuration files, apps, access privileges, and more. Security policies can be both pre-configured and updated in the field using a mobile management solution. ProsettaCore keeps separate the data and applications for different modes, effectively turning a single-purpose device into a multi-use device with multiple security levels. In addition, there are non-security applications for this capability.
Pctel, Inc., develops antenna, scanning receiver, and engineered site solutions and services for public and private networks.
