VirtualArmor reports first quarter 2016 financial results

-Q1 Revenue Increased 53% Year over Year-


VANCOUVER, May 30, 2016 /CNW/ - VirtualArmor International Inc. ("VirtualArmor" or the "Company") (CSE: VAI) today announced first quarter (Q1) financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2016. All figures are in USD.

"We had a great Q1 that saw our top line revenue grow 53% year over year due to an increase in both our hardware/software sales and our managed services platform," said Todd Kannegieter, CEO of VirtualArmor. "In addition, due to the expanding number of companies looking to upgrade their security posture and the limited number of competitors currently providing a full service managed security services platform we began investing into our sales and marketing capacity over the quarter in an effort to capture a growing and untapped market throughout the U.S."

"For the duration of the year, our focus will be on aggressively expanding our sales force in key areas of the U.S. while continuing to grow and service our existing customer base and onboard leading edge cyber security platforms that would benefit our current and prospective customer base," continued Todd Kannegieter.
