2019.12.03 CEO audio interview
The Company's flagship product is being bundled into a PCI compliance program. "We will be getting our first payment probably around the end of January or the 1st of February," said Kay. "It will be growing every month," he added. "Two to three million merchants will be onboard - this is a huge deal."
2019.11.19 “We are extremely excited that the worlds largest credit-card processor has embedded our keystroke encryption software into their small & medium-sized business (SMB) PCI Security Solution
,” says Kay. “The bundle will be distributed to their merchants, partners, and channels. Our distributing partner ACS announced specifics of this deal in their May 2, 2019 press release (link). In addition to this deal which launched last Friday, ACS has two additional merchant providers that also closed and will be launching by the end of January 2020. Each of those providers also have several millions of their own merchants”, says Kay. “StrikeForce expects to start to see the monthly reoccurring revenues from this first deal in early 2020 starting small and growing rapidly.”

2019.09.06 CromtecCyber and the AirForce using SFOR technology in phase 1 agreement
2019.07.25 StrikeForce Technologies, Inc. (OTC PINK: SFOR), announced today an innovative new program designed to protect hotel guests’ computers & cell phones from hackers while traveling and using Wi-Fi connections. A prominent NYC hotel will be the first to launch.
One of StrikeForce’s leading distrubutors, Cino Ltd., is the channel partner that’s launching the Secure eTravelers Program with a very prominent NYC hotel. “Other hotels are already in position to follow,” says Joe Saracino, CEO of Cino Ltd. “Costs are averaging around $3/day, to protect multiple mobile devices, which is extremely reasonable considering the high value of protecting one’s personal data.”
While the Secure eTravelers program is initially being launched within the hotel industry, plans are to roll-out the program to other industries that serve travelers such as airlines, cruise ships, trains, tour businesses and event/meeting planners.
2019.07.19 Strikeforce files writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS)
"The Petition for Writ of Certiorari should be held pending this Court’s decision whether to grant certiorari in Berkheimer SCT and if so, held pending this Court’s decision in Berkheimer SCT and disposed of as appropriate in light of the Court’s decision in that case."
2019.06.17 CEO gave guidance on quarterly revenue around the 8 minute mark. I interpret his guidance as potentially:
Q2 larger than Q1
Q3 similar to Q2
Q4 much larger than Q3
2019.05.20 Revenue in Q1 2019 doubled from a year ago, and
“In November 2018, we executed two distribution agreements for our security products in the insurance and hospitality marketplaces, respectively. We anticipate that both agreements will result in a substantial increase in revenues in the latter of 2019 or in 2020.”
2019.05.14 Supreme Court grants extension to file writ of certiorari (appeal) for Federal Circuit US Court of Appeals case# 18-1470.

"First Data will bundleACS EndpointLock™Keystroke Encryption software and ACS Dark Web Intel Scanning service, collectively referred to as CyberIDLock™, intotheirsmall and medium-sized business (SMB)PCI Security Solutionsfor its merchants, partners, and channels."
2019.03.19 Major deals throughout Asia include "first two customers have almost 20 million users
, this has the potential to grow really big and really fast over time"
2019 "We're starting to show revenue. Another deal should be doing the exact same thing in a month or two"

Q: mark, can you explain the thought process on allowing your channel partners to have sub licensing capabilities. I can get behind the channel partners strategy but not allowing them to bypass SFOR. I’d appreciate any feedback you could give. Thanks!
A: Any reseller and distributor can sub license our products. They are not bypassing SFOR.
Q: Thanks for the response. Maybe that was a bad choice of words. Can they make separate agreements with these sub licensees? Does SFOR receive the same 15-20% from those companies or just the channel partners?
A: Diferent deals with some and I can't explain legally. But we typically make more.
