PCTEL Divests ProsettaCore™ Assets to Redwall

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 divested all of the assets associated with ProsettaCore™ to Redwall Technologies, a development organization that specializes in mobile security, military and defense projects and systems, and critical national infrastructure. Under the terms of the agreement, Redwall will acquire the server and device software, the underlying IP, and complete development responsibility for the security products. PCTEL will receive royalties on the sale of ProsettaCore-enabled devices. Eric Uner, PCTEL Secure's engineering director and architect, will join Redwall as part of the transaction.

"We are delighted that Redwall will develop and represent ProsettaCore into the appropriate channels," said Marty Singer, PCTEL's Chairman and CEO. "ProsettaCore's behavioral approach to mobile device security has become increasingly relevant. Redwall brings the customer relationship and special project experience required to make ProsettaCore a commercial success," added Singer.

"Eric is a great addition to our team and ProsettaCore will become an important element of our product portfolio," said John Rosenstengel, Redwall's President. "Sophisticated mobile devices represent vulnerable assets and new attack vectors for those who would threaten commercial and government enterprises. Redwall, with ProsettaCore as a foundation, will provide a defense against those threats," added Rosenstengel.

Wunderlich Securities acted as a financial advisor, and Centaur Partners acted as a consulting advisor, to PCTEL in its divestiture of PCTEL Secure.
