PCTEL Engages Wunderlich Securities, Inc. to Explore Strategic Directions for PCTEL Secure
BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. --(Business Wire)--
PCTEL (News - Alert), Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in simplifying wireless and site
solutions for private and public networks, announced today that it had
engaged Wunderlich Securities, Inc. to advise them on potential
directions for PCTEL Secure LLC and its security solution called
ProsettaCore™. 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
