Revenue totaled $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2019. The improvement was due to managed and professional services revenue increasing 9.5% to $1.4 million while overall sales declined from $3.9 million vs. the same period a year ago due to lower product sales (hardware and software).
Cost of sales totaled $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2019 as compared to $2.9 million in the year ago quarter). The decrease in cost of sales was due primarily to a decrease in product cost of sales.
Gross profit was $0.7 million or 29.8% of revenue in the third quarter of 2019, as compared to $1.0 million or 26.4% of revenue in the year ago quarter. The increase in gross profit and gross profit as a percentage of revenue was due to a favorable shift in revenue to higher margin managed and professional services revenue.

“In 2019, we saw our business shift from a focus on hardware sales to more services contracts. Q3 is the first time that we have seen our managed service and professional service revenue exceed our hardware/software revenue,” said Russ Armbrust, CEO of VirtualArmour. “VirtualArmour will benefit from this shift to managed services vs. third party resale, given rapidly growing, high margin, recurring revenues are highly attractive, thereby increasing valuation multiples. Consequently, enterprise value will increase as VirtualArmour continues to deemphasize the hardware/software resale business and continues to focus on expanding its managed service business.
“As part of the new alliance with AT&T Cybersecurity, the AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM™) platform will be integrated with VirtualArmour’s proprietary CloudCastr client portal. The integration of our platforms will further simplify and centralize threat management across our new and existing customers’ cloud and on-premise environments. Through this alliance, we also see a tremendous cross-selling opportunity to bring a unique combination of capability and value to our respective clients
“Subsequent to the quarter, we expanded upon an engagement with a global satellite company. This client has been a long-time customer of ours and exemplifies the type of customer we focus on as a cornerstone to our growth strategy. Through our partnership we have worked closely together to open gateways all over the globe enabling this satellite provider to become a pioneering force in networking and communications.
“Due to the continued growing threat of targeted breaches across all industries and business sizes, our outlook for the rest of 2019 and into 2020 remains very positive. We are seeing larger budgets being allocated to cyber protection as companies prepare for 2020 and beyond. We anticipate further revenue growth and margin expansion from our continued ramp up in sales of managed services, along with further penetration of new markets led by our growing sales, marketing, and service organization.”
Annual global cyber losses are expected to hit US$6 trillion by 2021, with cybersecurity spending projected to exceed a total of US$1 trillion for the five years leading up to 2021. This is according to a report from Cybersecurity Ventures that suggests the immediate costs of a cyberattack can be significant, but the damage to a business’s reputation could cost just as much or even more in the long term.
With the ever-increasing cybersecurity risks and regulations being introduced, business leaders are fast realizing that there is more to be protected and serious penalties for not complying. According to the Worldwide Security Spending Guide from International Data Corporation (IDC), worldwide spending on security solutions will achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% over the 2018 to 2022 forecast period and total US$133.8 billion in 2022.
The report says worldwide spending on security-related software, hardware and services is forecast to reach $103.1 billion in 2019, an increase of 9.4% over 2018.
VirtualArmour is well positioned to capitalize on this growth opportunity and continues to deepen its penetration into the healthcare, financial, retail and service provider industries.
