WidePoint swings Protexx deal

WidePoint Corp. has purchased Protexx Inc., a provider of identity management and information protection technologies, in a move to expand its portfolio of security services to government clients. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Protexx, of Deerfield Beach, Fla., specializes in encryption software designed to transmit sensitive data safely and protect the identities of senders and receivers. Customers can integrate the company's software with a biometric identification to further enhance security when transmitting data over the Internet.

"The acquisition of Protexx quickly and significantly expands our core security offerings into the commercial sector and broadens our portfolio of services options to our existing base of federal clients," Steve Komar, WidePoint's chief executive officer, said in a news release.

Among WidePoint's federal customers are the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the General Services Administration, and the Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and Treasury departments.

WidePoint, of Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., provides identity management, information assurance, forensics informatics and wireless technology services.
