“We are excited about recent events and want to update investors about our plans to deliver value to our shareholders,” continued Mr. Remillard. “As much as we have accomplished thus far, we still have a lot of work to do; by no means am I satisfied, if only because of our upside potential.

State of the Market:
“Privacy continues to be front and center for many organizations and governments,” stated Mr. Remillard. “As witnessed by the new California Consumer Privacy Act and rumored moves by the U.S. federal government, we expect this to continue. As the GDPR became effective, many organizations took a ‘wait and see’ approach to days after May +1 scenarios. Post May 25 activities are mixed across the spectrum, some having major DSAR request volumes, other just starting their technology planning, and others waiting for further legislation or litigation to drive their decisions.
Data Security additionally continues to be a popular subject in virtually any arena. Data Classification and governance is the bedrock of any security program and continues to grow in importance as data loss grows in scale and cost.
Data Security and Privacy require in-depth capabilities – in technology and organizational aptitude. The importance of an integrated product line that has not just capabilities within the organization to communicate and add value – but also has reach into the larger global security ecosystem continues to be significant. Customers expect new products to communicate directly with their existing investments in software and infrastructure stacks, hence our efforts with global partners.
Additionally, these partners open new markets for us directly and indirectly via their app stores and defined integration services. These investments are important to any capable security product.
As we begin to exit the slow summer season, we have prepared well for the upcoming early-mid fall busy season when much of the planned technology spending occurs prior to the upcoming holiday season. Seasonality isn’t usually associated with technology companies, but I continue to be surprised by the number of ‘out of office’ messages this summer.
As always, we appreciate your support and efforts to spread our message – Data – your/our/their data – needs to be secured, protected and managed. It is working, it all helps and it will continue to deliver benefit in the future!” concluded Mr. Remillard.
