Mr. Anil Katarki, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), HP Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector:
"HP is also one of the first Commercial Service Provider's to receive a FedRAMP (SM) JAB authorization which highlights our commitment to delivering secure converged cloud to our public sector clients. We also recently received a contract award with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for their Continuous Diagnostics Mitigation (CMD) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA).

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.
Third Quarter 2013 Operational Highlights
- Awarded $2.2 million contract to expand biometric identity management services for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
- Awarded a U.S. federally sponsored pilot program for iris recognition with 20 state and local law enforcement agencies.
- Selected to provide complete identity management and booking system for the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick.
- Introduced GoMobile Interactive, the industry's first biometric mobile identity management platform for the iPhone and Android operating systems.
Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results
Total revenues in the third quarter of 2013 increased 167% to $2.5 million from $938,000 in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to approximately $1.5 million received in August for software licenses in connection with a $2.2 million contract with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
Gross margin in the third quarter of 2013 increased significantly to 88.0%, compared to 72.7% in the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily due to the increased software license revenues.
Net income in the third quarter of 2013 also improved significantly to $326,000 or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million or $(0.04) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.
At September 30, 2013, cash and cash equivalents totaled $3.5 million, compared to $1.0 million at June 30, 2013 and $4.2 million at December 31, 2012. The company continues to carry no debt and currently maintains a $2.5 million unsecured line of credit.
"Our strong third quarter results were primarily due to the $2.2 million contract we secured with our largest customer, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "This key contract drove our first cash flow positive quarter in nearly five years.
"The biometric identity solutions we are providing the VA, which are in strict compliance with U.S. government standards, serve as a working model for facilitating more rapid commercial sector adoption. In fact, we recently announced a contract award from our second commercial customer, Global Payout, which further endorses the turnkey use of our solutions in our target markets. Along with our technology partner, Fujitsu, we continue to explore many significant opportunities and look forward to a worldwide expansion model. As such, we are currently in discussions with several potential clients regarding licensing opportunities and will continue to target large enterprise businesses and emerging applications.
"Due to external factors not related to our portion of the contract, we're now anticipating the completion date of our LAX deployment to be shifted from the fourth quarter to early 2014. More than ever, we are confident the steps we are taking to advance and position our cloud, SaaS and mobile offerings in the commercial and consumer marketplace will provide increasing shareholder value, with better visibility and a strengthening recurring revenue stream."

Mr. Raj Samani, McAfee, EMEA CTO, told us, "Our dependency on services that are IP enabled is growing significantly and will continue to grow; from smart meters, power and water grids, train systems and every day devices such as units in cars, refrigerators and televisions. The need to correctly identify and authenticate when they connect to the Internet will be of critical importance, particularly if we consider devices related to health. In addition there is a need to ensure that they are capable of resisting cyber attack, as the impact of their unavailability could lead to serious economic effects."
