(OTC:SFOR) provides online products and solutions to consumers, small-to-midsize businesses, and corporations that help prevent cyber theft and data breaches in real time. SFOR stock recently climbed 25% overnight following the company’s CEO appearance on a podcast. With a major announcement coming on June 14th, SFOR stock has landed on investors’ radars – making it one to watch in the coming weeks.
SFOR Stock News
With the fear of cyberattacks growing globally following the Russia Ukraine conflict, more and more people are looking to secure their information from these attacks. In light of this rising demand for cybersecurity products, SFOR is well-positioned to capitalize on this through its portfolio of patented products and solutions.
As transactions require authentication, SFOR offers end-user authentication that goes beyond just a password through ProtectID. This patented product utilizes out-of-band two factor authentication to deliver authentication models for banks, corporations, government agencies, as well as social networks. Through this product, SFOR has a major competitive advantage since Protect ID is the only authentication platform that can be used on-premises, cloud, or hybrid configuration.
At the same time, SFOR has a patented anti-keylogging product – GuardedID – that encrypts every keystroke to secure users’ information. While protecting users from keyloggers, GuardedID has a unique approach against this type of cyberattacks as it controls the keyboard at the lowest layer in the kernel instead of just detecting keyloggers. Not just that, this product has a built-in self monitoring capability which prevents it from being bypassed by other software. However, in the case that GuardedID is tampered with, it notifies users of the breach which is an unprecedented feature in such products.
However, SFOR’s most impressive product is a new secure video conferencing product – SafeVchat. Unlike other video conferencing platforms, SafeVchat has at least five layers to ensure complete protection from cyberattacks. These layers contain a unique one time meeting passcode created by the platform with each meeting participant authenticated with out-of-band authentication. In this way, only authenticated users are able to participate in a meeting. The platform also secures the host meeting endpoint from spyware and malware, as well as encrypting the audio and video in the meeting.
In light of these features, SafeVchat was included in Forrester Research’s “Now Tech: Secure Communications, Q2, 2022” report as the only video conferencing platform to make the report. With this in mind, SafeVchat addresses the report’s data protection concerns stemming from video conferencing platforms. In addition to offering secure video conferencing, SafeVchat offers a desktop agent – PrivacyLok – which locks users’ camera, microphone, speakers, and keyboard from eavesdropping spyware. Given that video conferencing platforms have become integral to businesses following the Covid-19 pandemic, SafeVchat has the potential to secure a significant market share due to its unique security features.
With this in mind, SafeVchat is starting to receive more interest from different sectors – especially the healthcare market. In this way, SFOR is confident it could realize more revenues in Q2 thanks to this interest. On that note, SFOR’s CEO Mark Kay shared that “one of the Company’s clients is close to going live with the technology. They have a guaranteed contract with us, and it should be very soon”, and “for the third and fourth quarter, we see the potential for some larger clients coming onboard”. As a result, many investors are bullish SFOR stock is one to watch closely in 2022 in anticipation of these announcements.
Healthcare Sector Expansion
Considering the healthcare sector’s rising interest in SFOR’s secured video conferencing platform, SFOR has 25 hospitals and clinics signed-up to assess SafeVchat as they look to prevent unauthorized data access. For this reason, SFOR has taken all the steps to become HIPAA compliant to capitalize on this growing demand from the healthcare market and has already earned HIPAA’s Seal of Compliance. Given that the healthcare sector is suffering from healthcare data theft and data breaches, SFOR is confident that becoming HIPAA compliant will give SafeVchat a major competitive advantage in this market as the only zero-trust video conferencing platform. In light of this, SFOR is well-positioned to become a leader for video conferencing platforms in the healthcare sector.
Through its subsidiary BlockSafe Technologies, SFOR also offers solutions protecting the blockchain ecosystem’s most vulnerable points in user authentication and interaction. It is worth noting that the blockchain ecosystem has had $1.2 billion stolen since 2017 by keyloggers stealing secret keys and clipboard capture to change destination addresses. Since BlockSafe Technologies is the only US-based company securing wallets, exchanges, as well as private blockchains, SFOR has the potential to become a leader in this underserved market.
Based on this, SFOR partnered with FCK Foundation to provide the crypto company with its patented mobile keystroke encryption technology and ProtectID in exchange for 50% of net proceeds on all payment transaction fees. By utilizing SFOR’s technologies, FCK will not only have the most secure wallet on the market, it will securely integrate its platform for crypto payments with point of sale systems in retail outlets. As this would be the first time such technology is introduced to the market, this partnership could set SFOR up for more partnerships with other crypto exchanges.
With the company aiming to introduce its products to the Federal Government, SFOR partnered with Ankura Consulting to help facilitate government and commercial deals for its products. SFOR expects Ankura to also assist in securing a Small Business Innovation Research grant to further develop its technologies and platforms certifications. Considering the cybersecurity Executive Order signed by President Biden back in 2021, SFOR intends to capitalize on the prospects of this Executive Order through its partnership with Ankura. Given that Ankura’s team is vastly experienced in cybersecurity, SFOR believes this partnership will allow it to expand its audience to include the Federal Government and Intelligence communities. If the company is able to secure a Government contract, SFOR stock could soar to new highs.
Looking to expand its presence globally, SFOR entered into a distributor agreement with Zentek corporation to distribute its products in Brazil. Zentek provides the largest IT marketplace for banks, insurance carriers, as well as financial services firms, and has been asked to integrate SFOR’s GuardedID and MobileTrust into a bundle of services for an insurance company’s Personal Cyber Insurance policy which is expected to launch by the end of Q2 or the beginning of Q3. By venturing into the Brazilian market, SFOR is in a prime position to take advantage of the rising threats of identity theft and online fraud. While the company has not shared any news regarding this services bundle, SFOR promised to share more news when these services are launched and expects to have more deals with this insurance company in the future. As the launch of these services is approaching, many investors are watching SFOR stock in anticipation.
SFOR Stock Financials
In terms of its financials, SFOR reported $1.1 million in assets – a 50% decline QOQ – and has $13.9 million in liabilities. At the same time, SFOR witnessed a decline in revenues YOY from $46 thousand to $32 thousand. Despite this, the company reduced its net loss to $2.8 million compared to $9.9 million in the year-ago period. With the company expecting more revenues in Q2 and additional clients in Q3 and Q4, SFOR has the potential for financial growth in 2022.
