Reston Va.-based Secure Mission Solutions has more than 550 employees around the globe and is positioned in the cybersecurity and electronic security markets, Parsons said in a release.

“This acquisition is another important step toward meeting our strategic goal of expanding our national security and defense business, and it strengthens our offerings to new and existing customers for their most vital missions,” said Chuck Harrington, Parsons’ Chairman and CEO.

“The addition of Secure Mission Solutions’ capabilities to our current offerings in infrastructure, national security, and defense strongly positions Parsons in the growing cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection market,” he said.
