"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."
