ISC8 Reports Fiscal 2012 Results

COSTA MESA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/31/12 -- ISC8® Inc. (OTCBB: ISCI) ("ISC8" or the "Company"), a provider of intelligent cybersecurity solutions, today reported audited operating results for its fiscal 2012 year ended September 30, 2012.

"With 2012 behind us, we believe we have completed the majority of our transformation work and are now in an execution phase," said Bill Joll, President and CEO of ISC8, Inc. "Our Cyber adAPT product has received a very positive response from almost a dozen marquee names requesting trials, and our global business pipeline continues to build for NetFalcon and NetControl, along with our other existing products. With our strategic move to commercialization and broader suite of product offerings, we believe we are well positioned to have a more predictable recurring revenue business model and reduce our exposure to the uncertainties of Government R&D funding cycles."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • 2012 was a year of further transformation for ISC8:
    • Completed sale of Thermal Imaging Group
    • Completed acquisition of key assets of Bivio Networks. The acquisition provided ISC8 with advanced products and technologies for Security Intelligence, Incident Response, Content Control and mitigation of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) in enterprise, service provider and government networks.
      • ISC8 purchased the NetFalcon and Network Content Control System business units of Bivio Networks, including all related intellectual property, sales, engineering, managerial, and other operational resources.
      • In addition, ISC8 acquired an installed base of nine customers, including leading Tier 1 service providers, enterprises and government agencies worldwide.
      • The acquisition is expected to accelerate the growth of ISC8's cybersecurity business by adding these existing customer accounts, Bivio's significant sales pipeline, a receivables backlog, an installed base and a global sales force.
    • ISC8 now has three Cybersecurity products:
      • Cyber adAPT capable of detecting targeted attacks such as APTs (with beta trials beginning in January 2013)
      • Cyber NetFalcon capable of identifying perpetrators (currently available), and
      • Cyber NetControl capable of providing more user control and security to service operators, such as Mobile Carriers (currently available).
    • The acquisition expanded ISC8's reach globally with the addition of employees in Europe, Middle East and Asia.
      • ISC8 announced earlier this month that a Middle Eastern service provider selected its Cyber NetControl (formerly known as Bivio's Network Content Control System - NCCS), a carrier grade, policy-based content control and traffic enforcement solution to provide advanced parental control functionality to their subscribers. Cyber NetControl is one of the newest offerings from the Company's cybersecurity division since its acquisition of several products from Bivio Networks.
    • The company's business pipeline continues to grow, although the business climate continues to be challenging with respect to the Government sector, as many agencies have pending projects on hold until there is more clarity with respect to pending US fiscal policy changes.
  • The Company expects 2013 to be a year of execution, having essentially completed its transformation to commercialization, and is planning an aggressive marketing rollout of all 3 Cybersecurity products throughout 2013.

Financial Results:

Total revenues for fiscal 2012 were $4,196,400, an approximate 19% decrease over total revenues of $5,178,300 for fiscal 2011. Net loss in fiscal 2012 was $19,668,400, as compared to a net loss of $15,762,800 in the prior fiscal year. The increase in net loss in Fiscal 2012 as compared to Fiscal 2011 was substantially attributable to lower revenue and higher total operating expense primarily driven by higher research and development costs associated with the Company's our cybersecurity products.

Excluding non-cash charges for changes in fair value of derivative liability, non-cash interest expense, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization and net earnings from discontinued operations, non-GAAP net loss was approximately $13.9 million in fiscal 2012, compared to non-GAAP net loss of approximately $10.4 million in fiscal 2011. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" below for important information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information - ISC8 reports net loss in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") and also on a non-GAAP basis. The Company's presentation of non-GAAP net loss in this press release excludes the impact of changes in fair value of derivative liability, non-cash interest expense, stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense and net earnings from discontinued operations. Stock-based compensation expense primarily includes the impact of stock options issued by the Company and stock contributions to the employees' retirement plan. A reconciliation of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures for all periods presented is found in the attached "Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjustments."

ISC8 believes that the presentation of non-GAAP net loss provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends related to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company also believes that examination of non-GAAP net loss can facilitate consistency and comparability among and between prior periods, as well as comparison with other companies that present similar non-GAAP financial measures. However, the Company's presentation of non-GAAP information is not necessarily equivalent to non-GAAP measures presented by other reporting companies and should be considered in that context. The Company's management generally uses non-GAAP loss to evaluate the Company's operating performance because management believes that the exclusion of the non-cash items described above provides insight into the Company's core ongoing operating results, particularly from a cash generation or use perspective, and underlying business trends affecting the Company's performance. ISC8 has chosen to provide this non-GAAP information to investors to enable them to perform additional analyses of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluate the Company's ongoing core operations. The non-GAAP financial information presented herein should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

@ThingsExpo Stories
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
