First commercial orders from Nokia Networks and strong demand for IAM products mark Q1 strengths

STOCKHOLM. 2017-05-31, by Nikolas Georgii

Clavister (Nasdaq: CLAV) - has received its first order for its virtual security solution from Nokia Networks during Q1 2017, as previously announced. A smaller add-on order from the same operator was received in May and a trial order for validation purposes for another tier-one operator was received earlier in the quarter.

Previous investments in "Identity Management" / IAM yielded positive results during the first quarter. The launch of the Clavister Endpoint Security Client (Clavister ESC) in February significantly increases the company's addressable market compared to simple "Firewalling". It also strengthens the conditions for expanded sales of Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) products.

Also during the quarter, Aptilo and Clavister launched a collaboration on WiFi and IoT solutions in the edge computing segment.

In March, a new CEO and president, Johan Öhman, took office.

  • Revenues amounted to 20,6 (18,0) MSEK, an increase of 14,6% compared to first quarter in 2016
