Is this exciting or what??
"Intellisec is the only ‘secure 1588’ solution available today,"
Rest assured the gang has been pushing the above TRUTH hard.

Fun to be part of an IPO as a little guy, only in America!!

"Cisco Systems (CSCO) got its start in 1984 by selling routing equipment that helped computer networks made by various manufacturers talk to each other and exchange information quickly."

Intelli allowing data centers to safely connect, move data... has anyone pondered the possibilities with me??

Stanislav and Lanier said their goal is to help those small vendors understand the importance of security, and in so doing, “help them stay out of jail,” with an initiative called “BuildItSecure.ly.”

Strong find phobos! indeed crg and gang have done their homework and we soon stand to reap the benefits.

Yippee! Another "first" ! And the market responds in a way that can only be expected. Look at the last 3 years of press releases that mention "the industry's only" "the lowest power", "the first this or that"..........YAWN!! Meanwhile, look at the revenue growth during the last 3 years as they've come out with all of these great innovations. May I remind you of V-Scope, a product so great when it was announced as a real game changer, that a year later they had to hold a contest for EE students to come up with the best use of it for a prize. At great cost, they developed something nobody wanted apparently. Did you ever see a press release saying that some big company was using it? What a joke.

I won't argue Sharp. VTSS has a very long history of credibility issues at this point, and the market knows it. The first Tuesday in May they will have to meet their numbers for this quarter, affirm they are on-track for next quarter (the "break-even" quarter), and be nothing but positive looking forward. Anything less will see us below $2 again.

The difference between a business and a hobby is that you pay for a hobby, but you earn money from a business over what was invested. VTSS needs to make clear to the investment community that they are in business and not just enjoying the hobby of running a company in order to make cool stuff ("V-Scope").

The next two quarters will determine VTSS' future. We should know by the first Tuesday in August.

Sharp- Thanks for the reality check/history lesson. Some say we are now an IPO- seems like we still have same management as we had through the "wonder years".

VTSS needs to take a page from other small tech companies. WAVX ( security solutions) was up almost 100 % today (currently 62 %) by announcing a collaboration with an actual company (Micron Technology) for developing solutions to ensure secure connected devices.

No revenues, but at least a real company they're working with.

Over 50% of early adopters used vitesse, second wave should be in the process... I expect deeper penetration in the second wave.

Vscope was born in the most precarious time of Vitesse existence! only the very brave dared to align/buy her products.

My time frame for vitesse Re-birth was starting 2012! this is when companies started taking her serious again.

INTELLISEC with its low price(critical), ease of implementation(critical) is one the world is going to embrace fully!!

Patience is truly a virtue, deep money will soon awaken to the possibilities of INTELLISEC and friends, and will buy the HELL out of this thing.

Peace

great explanation of what is to be expected from this company. we have been told it will happen (not the first time) will it finally happen? all of the long suffering bagholders sure do hope so.

Never forget Garif that the system itself is rigged. CEO's and boards can get way too cozy while awarding each other ridiculous options and golden parachutes. They become hostage to each other. A company just has to survive for them all to get very wealthy. Great pr helps. It keeps the game going by drawing in more believers (and/or suckers). Ultimately the game has to end and there are casualties. If it ends poorly in this case will the casualties be Gardner, Rogas and the rest of the gang? Personally I doubt it. If this company does not succeed, none of them will be crying in their beer. For the record, I would like to see a happy ending, but there are only 2 quarters left for that to happen.

Bernie Madoff said it best, "our whole system is a Ponzi Scheme"
Sharp, I have a skittish disposition, sometimes I even question the intentions of my shadow!!!!
The uniqueness of Intellisec will in my opinion bring about the "happy ending'' we all wish for.

peace

Well, it is true that the system is rigged: insiders have too much control, the SEC has been essentially captured by corporate and banking interests, and the Fed's artificially low interest rates as the false Keynesian antidote to congress' profligate spending have caused equity valuations to become historically (unreasonably) high (some would even say we are in an equity bubble). So, why am I here?

There are a great many technological innovations happening now, from carrier ethernet to the internet of everything. Now it is high risk to try to pick a winner in any particular area, but it is much lower risk to try to decide who will create the eco-system in which all these innovations from cellular streaming video to industrial networking and 3-d printing will emerge. At this point, I think VTSS seems like they are seeing the future and creating the chips for this eco-system. And their valuation is not currently astronomical either. Of course, I could be wrong.

But I think the downside is that, if for whatever reason VTSS does not make it, they could probably sell the technology for more than their shares are currently valued. In any event, we will have an answer in a relatively short time, financially speaking.

So, good luck all, and keep your fingers crossed!

Cypress Semi (CY) came up on my radar yesterday with earnings. It caused a flashback to the VTSS "Glory days" when TJ Rodgers was on the Board. They have had a rough go of it over the years, but much bigger company than VTSS (170 mil revs for Qtr- to die for)- still lost money but less than before.

The thing that caught my eye was 4.6 % dividend yield, that is nice while waiting for recovery. We can only dream of a day when VTSS will have enough free cash flow to have a dividend.

Born again, IPO types like Vitesse re-invest every dime into themselves which is the way I like it, as I am a home-run scavenger.
Dividend paying companies are mostly for people who've reached critical mass and are out to protect their good fortune.

more than 80% of smartphones were unprotected through 2013

1.3 billion smartphones, including mobile devices, featurephones and tablets are expected to have mobile security software installed by 2018, up from 325 million in 2013.

SECURITY concerns in every corner! will be fun watching INTELLISEC perform globally...

"A recent RAND Corp study found that "the ability to stage cyberattacks will likely outpace the ability to defend against them" and that cybercrime can be more lucrative than the illegal drug trade."

I wonder what #3 said when Vitesse told them their product could help them just as it has #2... True! there is the confidentiality stuff but I'am sure engineers know who is working with whom.

Perhaps tomorrow we will get more hints about some of our unique INTELLI customers.
Should be interesting!!!

I would suspect ALu to become an even larger customer of ours.

"With that said, Alcatel-Lucent's core growth segments like LTE, broadband, and core routing are all areas where cyber threats roam, especially in endpoint, where such acquisitions have occurred. At some point, Alcatel-Lucent will have to get serious about security, including next-generation technology. It will have to make investments in order to compete against the likes of Cisco."
