Pivot3 Q1 2013 Update

Author: Carlton Purvis, Published on Mar 27, 2013

Intransa's troubles have raised concerns about the viability of specialized surveillance storage appliances. However, Pivot3, another well known provider in this space, says its 2013 outlook is strong and that restructuring rumors about the company are misleading. For this note, we interviewed Pivot3 CEO Richard Bravman, examining the latest numbers and "software only" product plans.

[UPDATE: The CEO is gone one month after this initial post.]
