Bsquare Announces Distribution Agreement With Faronics

Robust Management and Security Solutions for Embedded Devices

BELLEVUE, WA and VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart, connected systems, and Faronics, a global leader in simplifying, securing and managing multi-user computer environments today announced an agreement in which Bsquare will distribute Faronics Deep Freeze and Faronics Anti-Executable in North America and Europe.

Through this agreement, Bsquare will offer the Faronics software products to embedded device manufacturers. These software products, which work on x86-based embedded devices, ensure device and application availability, enable easier device management, increase security and free up support teams from tedious technical support and software issues.

Faronics Deep Freeze provides the ultimate protection for embedded devices by preserving the desired, original configuration and settings of embedded devices, ensuring 100% availability while also reducing support tickets. With a simple reboot of the device, the original configuration is restored, and integrity is maintained. The software helps devices to run smoothly and efficiently and use can result in more up-time.

Faronics Anti-Executable offers protection from sophisticated threats like zero-day attacks, mutating malware and advanced persistent threats. As an application control solution that uses a default deny approach to block the unknown threats that can by-pass your anti-virus solution, Anti-Executable accelerates productivity with standardized configuration and central management. It also assists with compliance readiness, saving organizations time and money by helping to reduce the incidence of support tickets.

"Faronics has been successful in the Enterprise market with products that bring tremendous benefit to the embedded space. We chose Bsquare as our distribution partner for the embedded industry because of their depth of knowledge and experience in the market," said Reginald Kao, Business Leader - North American Channel, Faronics. "Our products are ideal for OEMs who market intelligent, embedded devices and are looking to improve device and system reliability. We are excited to about this partnership with Bsquare. It's a relationship that will help us grow into the embedded market."

"The Faronics products fill a crucial need for many embedded devices and solutions," said Mike Stipe, senior vice-president of worldwide sales and marketing for Bsquare. "Kiosks, digital signage, industrial automation applications and many other embedded solutions have critical requirements for security and system reliability. Faronics Deep Freeze and Faronics Anti-Executable provide our customers with elegant and robust security solutions for their devices."
