Deloitte Acquires Sentek to Expand Systems Engineering and Cyber Offerings

Sentek Consulting, Inc. (Sentek Global), a systems engineering and cybersecurity firm that primarily serves the US Navy, announced that Deloitte has bought essentially all of its assets.

Mike Canning, US Government & Public Services Industry leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP said, “The acquisition of Sentek Global’s business will expand Deloitte’s existing presence in San Diego, while also bolstering our current mission-focused systems engineering capabilities and cyber offerings to other military branches and federal agencies.”

“Deloitte is focused on delivering mission-relevant, complex and technology-enabled engineering, analytics and transformation solutions to our clients in the Department of Defense (DoD). The addition of Sentek Global’s capabilities expands our complement of skilled system engineering and cybersecurity professionals that will enhance DoD’s ability to accelerate its engineering and acquisition processes to ensure effective and reliable systems for our warfighters.  And, it enables us to welcome those Sentek Global professionals who are former members of the Armed Forces into our existing veteran workforce,” said Heather Reilly, Deloitte’s Defense, Security and Justice sector leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.

“As cyber threats to all organizations — particularly U.S. federal agencies — continue to proliferate and become more complex, we’re investing to help our clients prevent, detect and remediate those emerging threats.  The addition of Sentek Global’s capabilities allows us to do just that,” Mark Nace, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory’s Government & Public Services leader for the Cyber & Strategic Risk practice and  principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP.

Sentek Global provides program management and integrated logistics services to the Defense, Security and Justice sectors (USA) in addition to systems engineering and cybersecurity.

“Sentek Global and Deloitte share many common values, not the least of which is providing high quality services and solutions for the agencies that serve our country.  We are joining Deloitte to help our government clients solve complex systems engineering and cybersecurity challenges, while also accelerating the scaling of our services for defense, security and justice sector organizations,” said Eric Basu, CEO and founder, Sentek Global.

Alion, a cybersecurity and R&D firm, acquired by Huntington Ingalls for $1.7 billion

Huntington Ingalls, a shipbuilding and defence contractor, will pay $1.7 billion to acquire cybersecurity and research and development firm Alion.

Huntington said in a statement that the agreement will allow it to extend its work to support Navy simulation and training as well as military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance activities.

Huntington Ingalls is the largest military shipbuilding business in the United States and provides professional services to the government and commercial sector. Its cybersecurity and digital intelligence practice has grown in response to increased demand from the federal government for such services.

Huntington’s technical solutions section, which was created in 2016 to concentrate on cybersecurity and autonomous systems, is likely to grow as a result of the deal, according to the company.

“Today’s announcement, coupled with our previous investments in leading-edge technologies, such as cybersecurity and autonomous systems, reflects our commitment to stay on the cutting edge of critical, high-growth national security solutions and generate significant long-term value for our shareholders,” said HII’s chief executive, Mike Petters.
