Bsquare Announces Distribution Agreement With Faronics 
Robust Management and Security Solutions for Embedded Devices 
BELLEVUE, WA and VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 -- 
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."
