SilverEdge buys identity intelligence, ServiceNow specialist / Yuichiro Chino

The national security technology integrator has closed two transactions with its private equity owner's assist.

SilverEdge Government Solutions has announced its second completed acquisition in as many weeks to continue that company's push into technology areas of interest for intelligence agencies.

This latest purchase involves Counter Threat Solutions, a provider of counterintelligence analysis and identity intelligence services and solutions including those centered around the ServiceNow workflow software platform. Terms were not disclosed.

"We are increasing our cleared workforce to approximately 450 engineers and technical staff whose primary focus is to provide our intelligence customers with the tools required to support critical mission needs," SilverEdge's chief executive Robert Miller said in a release.

Founded in 2015 and led by CEO Theresa Keith, CTS and its 100-employee team also concentrate on software development and enterprise IT offerings.

Columbia, Maryland-headquartered SilverEdge is owned by the private equity firm Godspeed Capital.

The national security technology integrator unveiled its current branding and identity over the summer. In mid-October, SilverEdge acquired the software development and cloud services provider QVine.

CTS was advised by the McLean Group. Latham & Watkins LLP acted as legal adviser to Godspeed.
