Defense- and national security-focused engineering and technology firm AEgis Technologies has acquired technology provider Excivity, Inc. in a move AEgis says strengthens its cyber and intelligence mission area, according to an April 6 company announcement.
Excivity was founded in 2006 and creates and deploys mission-enabling technologies like specialized security applications and situational awareness tool sets for the national security community. It also creates software and hardware, performs operational assessments and security reviews of technology, executes advanced cyber investigations and provides cybersecurity training.
Company founder and CEO Matt Ramsey and Chief Technology Officer Roger Edmiston will join AEgis’ leadership team and continue to manage the Excivity business.
“Matt, Roger, and the team are a first-class organization,” said AEgis CEO Jonathan Moneymaker. “From the capabilities they deliver, the customers they serve, and the culture they have built, and I am excited to welcome them into the family. We look forward to accelerating their vision and leveraging the collective expertise across the platform to bring more capability to mission.”
The acquisition allows AEgis, an Arlington Capital Partners portfolio company, to expand its cyber and intelligence mission area with the addition of differentiated products and solutions, and an expanded customer base.
Plus, the deal builds on Arlington Capital Partners‘ efforts to accelerate AEgis’ mission of “Leading the Transformation of Modern Warfare” through inorganic investment.
“AEgis is off to a tremendous start and we anticipate significant additional investment into the platform,” said David Wodlinger, partner at Arlington Capital Partners. “Matt and Excivity are a perfect fit and I’m looking forward to what new and exciting advancements the team will be delivering to its expanding customer base next.”
Having founded Excivity, Ramsey said the decision to take what he and Edmiston have built and merge the company into a new organization was a personal one.
“AEgis, Moneymaker, and the Arlington team are such a great mission and cultural fit for what we do they were the natural partner to accelerate us to the next level,” Ramsey said.
