PLANO, Texas, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – INTRUSION, Inc. (Nasdaq: INTZ) today announced preliminary revenue for the second quarter of 2021, which is expected to be between $ 1.9 million and $ 2.0 million. Additionally, since INTRUSION believes that additional capital may be required to achieve profitability, it engaged an investment banking firm to assess various sources of funding, as well as potentially constructive long-term strategic options that could help INTRUSION grow, meet its operating objectives and maximize shareholder value.
Recent global interest and recognition of the Shield solution is increasing, although INTRUSION experienced a slower-than-expected sales ramp-up due to the longer customer evaluation cycles typically seen in most enterprise security sales organizations. Based on customer feedback, the Company remains confident in Shields the effectiveness and valuable protection it offers to clients in helping them fight the growing war on cybercrime. The team continues to work closely with partners and the sales channel to further test with potential customers and convert a growing pipeline of customer engagements into recurring subscriptions.
In addition, Jack B. Blount, previously President, CEO and member of the Board of Directors, has left the company with immediate effect and no longer has any affiliation with INTRUSION. The Board of Directors asked CFO Franklin Byrd and CTO Joe Head, who is also a co-founder of INTRUSION, to jointly take on operational responsibilities on behalf of the company until a successor be appointed, and both will report to Council immediately.
