ORLANDO, Fla. — IAUG CONVERGE2013, Booth #333 — June 3, 2013 - API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a trusted provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, announced today that it has entered into a reseller agreement with Carousel Industries for the ION™SA5600-SAL:Avaya® SAL Edition. The ION SA5600-SAL is a security appliance with an embedded Avaya Secure Access Link (SAL) Gateway for fast SAL deployment. The device is Avaya Services Certified.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to partner with Carousel. As a leader in the integration of technology solutions that help corporations grow, Carousel is an ideal partner for our new SAL appliance,” said Henry Gold, General Manager, Secure Systems & Information Assurance (SSIA) – US, API Technologies. Carousel Industries is a Rhode Island-based leader in managed services, mobility, unified communications and visual communications.

“After evaluating and field testing the SAL appliance, we are confident that this platform will help customers achieve the benefits of SAL quickly and cost effectively. The ease of implementation and support for the ION appliance-based SAL solution versus a server-based solution is a ‘win-win’ for Carousel and our customers,” said Dan Whalen, VP of Engineering, Carousel Industries.

The ION SA5600-SAL is pre-configured with the SAL Gateway, allowing it to be installed in under 10 minutes. The appliance supports up to 400 managed devices and eliminates the need for a dedicated server, a RedHat® license, and a skilled engineer with Linux® knowledge.
