Executive
Michelle Spolver

Thank you, operator, and thank you all for joining us on today's conference call to discuss our financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 and provide guidance for the first quarter and full year 2019. This call is being broadcast live over the Internet and can be accessed from the Investor Relations section of our website at www.investors.forescout.com.

A few minutes ago, we issued a press release announcing our financial results for the fourth quarter full year of 2018 as well as guidance for the first quarter and full year 2019. The release can be found on our Investor Relations website, along with supplemental financial information that accompanies today's remarks.

Before we begin, let me remind you that we will make forward-looking statements during this call, including statements related to ForeScout's guidance and expectations for the first quarter and full year 2019; the market for our products, including business growth factors and customer demand for our products; our product conservative releases; our competitive position; changes in the threat landscape and the security industry; the ramping of our sales organization and our growth profitability and the impact of the securities matters occupation on our marketing company. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by these statements. These forward-looking statements apply only as of today, and we undertake no obligation to update these statements in the future. For a detailed description of risks and uncertainties, please refer to our SEC filings as well as our earnings release. Copies of these documents may be obtained from the SEC or by visiting the Investor Relations section of our website.

Additionally, certain non-GAAP financial measures will be discussed on this call. We have provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures against the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the Investor Relations section of our website as well as in our earnings release.

Before I turn things over to Mike, I want to highlight that today's -- during today's call we will be sharing certain business and financial metrics that we may provide on an annual but not quarterly basis which can also be found in the supplemental financial information also posted on our Investor Relations website.

Lastly, I'd like to mention that we'll be attending the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference on Tuesday February 26th and hosting our First Analyst Day on Monday March 4th in San Francisco. Additional details and registration information can be found on the Events page
