YEHUD, Israel, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Magal Security Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ GMS: MAGS) announces today the formation of a
joint venture (JV) company with Veecon Group in India, which will provide Homeland
Security (HLS) products and solutions to the Indian market. The foundation for the
establishment of the JV between Magal and the Veecon Group was laid through the visionary
approach of representatives from both Magal and Veecon, specifically Mr. Dror Harari, VP
Sales, Magal and the support of Mr. Jacob Perry, Chairman, Magal and Mr. JK Srivastava,

Magal,” commented Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal S3. “While we have been
successful in India in the past, winning strategic projects such as the Indira Gandhi
International Airport, we believe that a local presence is a key strategic step which will
enable us to further expand our business and provide better support for both our current
and future customers.”

Mr. JK Srivastava, MD of Veecon Group said: “I am delighted to extend my support for
the new opportunity. I am also thankful for the trust that Magal, the global leader in
