Amid Federal Cybersecurity Initiative, Advisory Associates Retained to Provide Business Advisory Services to Internet Security Company in Government-Contracting Space

MCLEAN, VA – On the heels of President Obama’s May 29 announcement of a plan to appoint a "cyber czar" to coordinate federal cybersecurity efforts, Advisory Associates, Inc. has been retained to identify M & A opportunities, via its DealTRACC platform, for an internet security company with a 10-year history of providing cybersecurity services to US government clients.

Increasing attacks on America’s digital infrastructure, President Obama said in his address, are some of "the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation."

Amid these concerns, an acquisition of this business presents a timely and substantial opportunity for a competitive buyer interested to provide cybersecurity services within the government sector. According to Advisory Associates, the company may be of interest to other small internet and telecom service companies with government or private sector customers. The company has a top-secret facility clearance and its service offering has been recently productized for ease and breadth of sale within the government. Customers from various government agencies, including FAA, FDIC, and Federal Student Aid, are subject to long-term contracts, and the company expects to bid a significant number of new contracts in 2009.
