KEYW Corp. has made its third acquisition in just over two months, picking up a company that brings more cybersecurity capabilities.
Terms of the deal for Rsignia Inc. were not disclosed. The Columbia, Md., company supports a range of government and commercial customers with cybersecurity solutions.
The deal builds on KEYW’s Project G platform, which provides customers with monitoring and mitigation of malicious internet packet activity, network monitoring and analysis and forensics analysis, the company said.
“Rsignia brings innovative technology and products that are highly relevant to bringing Project G to general availability early next year," said Leonard Moodispaw, CEO and president of KEYW, in a statement.
Project G is currently in initial commercial trials, the company said.
The investment bank Bluestone Capital Partners was Rsignia’s advisor in the transaction.
The acquisition follows KEYW’s acquisition of Poole & Associates for $126 million and Sensage Inc. for $34.5 million in September. The company has now closed eight acquisitions since going public two years ago.
