The period ending October 31, 2007 also marked a 50% revenue increase for the second consecutive quarter.

The remarkable success of SecureVue continues to accelerate quarter over quarter, confirming the need by both enterprises and MSSP partners for a comprehensive, integrated security, risk and audit management solution to address increasingly sophisticated security breaches like financial fraud and ID theft as well as evolving regulatory requirements.
Market Innovation Unveils Industry First

The combination of these technologies on a single platform the first solution of its kind in the industry fosters more effective, proactive security and compliance initiatives that help organizations radically improve operational efficiency and reduce management complexity by increasing collaboration between NOC, SOC and IT audit departments.
