Thanks, Staci, and good morning everyone. Welcome to our 2012 Q3 earnings call. Before we begin, I wanted to take a moment to honor John Burris, a great leader and mentor and a true friend who passed away on October 19. His management style was pretty straight forward, say what you mean, do what you say, challenge the status quo, hold yourself accountable for your actions. He left us with a lasting legacy that has positioned the company to continue to succeed into the future through the collective efforts of all fireman led by a deep and experienced management team. We’ll miss John and we feel that the best way to celebrate the success that he brought us is to continue to build on it as he would have done.

In the spirit of that success, Q3 was a quarter of record revenue for Sourcefire. Our results were driven by our market leading FirePOWER platform and our increased distribution capability. We felt the same growth across all sectors of our business due to our ability to detect, understand and stop threats and do it better than anyone else.

Before hand in the call after our CFO Todd Headley, who will provide more detailed financial information including our guidance to the fourth quarter and updated thoughts on the full yea. I want to talk to you about three specific items. First, a brief overview of our financial results for the third quarter. Second, the increasing commitments by our customers and partners to our FirePOWER platform and third, a more in depth look at our threat centric approach and why we believe it will drive long term growth. Okay, first the financial results.

Revenues came in at $58.8 million in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 30% over the year ago period and we generated adjusted net income of $7.6 million or $0.25 per diluted share. These results exceeded the top end of the guidance we provided on our second quarter earnings call. During the quarter, we saw strengths across all sectors of our business as a result of a strong adoption of our Firepower platform, our continued investment in our go-to market initiative and existing customers making a larger commitment to our solutions.

Our federal revenue grew 4% year-over-year in-line with our expectations and year-to-date our performance is very strong with revenue up 24%. We remained very well positioned with the federal government and recognized as a trusted security advisor. We have an increased level of confidence that this business can be an important element of our growth moving forward. Earlier this month, our next generation IPS was named to the Department of Defense unified capabilities improves product list enabling DoD customers to deploy our solution with even greater confidence.
