“In Q3 2014, we continued to build a solid organization which is well capitalized, has unique technology, and a new sales organization to execute on our strategy. As the relationships formed this year with strategic technology, telecommunications, and distribution partners begin to mature, we believe we are well-aligned in the identity and security marketplaces,” said Hart. “While a number of internal consolidation and cost-efficiency projects are ongoing, our primary focus has transitioned to leveraging our know-how to deliver new security products throughout the remainder of this year and into 2015, while outpacing the annual industry growth rate in 2015.”

The Company reaffirms revenue guidance for fiscal year 2014 of revenue between $80 million and $90 million.
