ManTech makes another cyber deal

ManTech International has made another move to build its cybersecurity capabilities making a second acquisition that adds to its cyber offerings.

The company has acquired Oceans Edge Inc., a provider of cyber network operations. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed but ManTech is paying for the deal out of cash on hand. The acquisition of Oceans Edge follows last year’s acquisition of Knowledge Consulting Group.

Both deals bolster ManTech’s cyber solutions. The Oceans Edge transaction adds customers in the U.S. Cyber Command, the company said.

Oceans Edge will become part of ManTech’s Mission, Cyber and Intelligence Solutions Group, led by William Varner.

“This acquisition, along with our acquisition of KCG last year, expands our presence with customers who are critical to our nation’s future cyber operations and cyber defense,” Varner said in a statement.

Oceans Edge brings capabilities around vulnerability research, development and analysis capabilities. According to its website, its particular strengths are around wireless cybersecurity, mobile application development, wireless communication protocols and wireless network implementation.
