Raytheon Co. has acquired SI Government Solutions, a provider of proprietary software security solutions to the U.S. intelligence community. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
SI Government Solutions, based in Melbourne, Fla., was founded in 2005 to provide targeted vulnerability assessment capabilities aimed at protecting complex information technology assets of government customers.
Raytheon will add the company to its information security offerings. The company hopes the addition will enable it to provide end-to-end information assurance and information operations capability.
Raytheon has focused its efforts in the emerging cybersecurity market under its Intelligence and Information Systems business designed to address an environment of ever-changing threats, said Michael Keebaugh, president of Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems.
"Protecting critical infrastructures is rapidly becoming one of the most complex and critical challenges our customers face today," Keebaugh said in a news release. "The purchase of SI Government Solutions, combined with our earlier acquisition of Oakley Networks and existing assets, gives Raytheon even stronger capabilities to address our customers' growing challenges."
Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems is based in Garland, Texas.
Raytheon Co., of Waltham, Mass., ranks No. 6
