Directorate-General of Taxes deploys four Clavister high-end W50 firewalls to secure network and critical data

Clavister (Nasdaq: CLAV), a leader in high-performance network security, is continuing to see strong interest its solutions in Africa, and has completed its latest agreement for the deployment of four (4) next-generation firewalls at the Mauritian Directorate-General of Taxes.

The Clavister solution was chosen over two major US-based competitors in a competitive tender process.

The agreement with Directorate-General of Taxes includes hardware, software and services for deployment of four W50s, one of Clavisters most powerful security appliances for enterprise networks. The W50 is a high performance next-generation firewall specifically built for fast-growing and demanding networks and supports up to eight million concurrent connections. Clavister Professional Services and partner MDS Cresoft will oversee the deployment of the security system.

Jim Carlsson, CEO of Clavister said: “The African market is key to our growth strategy and we have huge confidence in its potential as an increasing number of organizations look to secure their key assets. This agreement is a testament to the knowledge and expertise of our growing team in Africa, and we anticipate further positive news to come in the region.”

The deal follows on from Clavister’s entry to the African market earlier this year, a move by Clavister to enhance its presence in the African cyber-security marketplace, which is expected to grow from $0.92 billion in 2015 to $2.3 billion in 2020, a compounded annual growth rate of 20%.
