ECS Federal is acquiring InfoReliance in a move that will greatly expand its cloud computing, agile software development, and cybersecurity offerings. KippsDeSanto represented InfoReliance in the deal.
“In the past five years ECS has transformed from a services company to a rapidly growing performer, systems integrator, and solution provider in the national defense and intelligence markets,” said CEO George Wilson. “The acquisition of InfoReliance will add $150M in new revenues delivering next generation cloud and cyber solutions at an enterprise scale. This, along with new contract awards has greatly accelerated ECS’s transformation.”
ECS currently provides cybersecurity solutions and active cyber defense to the Navy, Army, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Defense Health Agency and the intelligence community. InfoReliance, a leading provider of cybersecurity, cloud computing, software engineering solutions and managed services, supports the Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, United States Postal Service, Federal Bureau of Investigations, the intelligence community and the Department of Labor.
InfoReliance core leadership, operations and delivery teams will continue as a wholly owned subsidiary and together with ECS will pursue cyber, cloud, enterprise IT and software engineering opportunities. The companies will further invest in key strategic partnerships with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, McAfee, and RSA Security to bring more competition to ECS’s highly sought after government-wide acquisition contracts: Alliant, CIOSP-3, CIO-CS, SEWP, NASPO Valuepoint and OASIS.
Andrew Butler, InfoReliance CEO, will join ECS as Senior Vice President and strategic advisor to Mr. Wilson. “We built our business over the past seventeen years by earning the trust of our customers through continuous innovation and a relentless commitment to their success,” he said. “ECS’s culture, leadership, and equal commitment to the highest-standards is a perfect match and we couldn’t be more excited about the future for our employees, partners, and customers.”
