A leader in cybersecurity, Secureworks (NASDAQ: SCWX), has released its financial results for the second quarter of 2022, which concluded on July 29, today.
In the second quarter of fiscal 2022, Taegis’ revenue increased by 131% to $42.8 million.
In trading on Thursday afternoon, Secureworks (NASDAQ:SCWX) stock dropped as much as 10.9% to $9.27 after the cybersecurity firm released mixed FQ2 2023 results and lowered its fiscal year revenue outlook.
As of 1308 ET, the company’s Class A shares had mostly recovered their losses and were trading slightly lower. Early in the day, SCWX reported Q2 non-GAAP EPS of -$0.13, above expectations by $0.04. Its sales, which were in line with forecasts at $116.2 million, decreased 13.4% year over year.
The firm reported that Taegis, its main security platform, increased its annual recurring revenue year over year to $201 million and that it added 800 Taegis clients to end the quarter with 1.5K customers.
According to SCWX, the company’s exit from non-strategic, lower-margin services was the primary cause of the overall decline in quarterly revenue.
