“First quarter revenue grew quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year,” said Jack Blount, President and CEO of INTRUSION. “We continue to make excellent progress with the rollout of INTRUSION Shield in terms of new customers and adding channel partners.

We remain very encouraged by the exceptional feedback we’ve received from existing customers and the increasing interest from potential customers. We’re gaining strong momentum in our opportunity pipeline both in the U.S. as well as with our new international resellers.”

Blount continued, “A factor in our growth was our government business. We see activity in Washington progressing toward a gradual resumption of more normal ordering patterns as the year unfolds.”
