Cherokee Federal acquires Criterion Systems

On March 1, Tulsa, OK-based Cherokee Federal, the federal contracting division of Cherokee Nation Businesses (CNB), announced the acquisition of Criterion Systems, a cybersecurity and IT services company.

Founded in 2005 and headquartered outside Washington, D.C. in Vienna, VA, Criterion serves as a strategic partner and trusted prime contractor for many of the nation’s most mission-critical environments across more than a dozen agencies of the federal government.

“The strategic decision to acquire Criterion was made with the evolving needs and long-term success of the customer in mind,” said Steven Bilby, president of Cherokee Federal. “In addition to helping federal agencies address emerging cybersecurity requirements crucial to the protection of our nation, Criterion delivers efficient and secure methodologies and architectures for modernizing government IT that are unparalleled in the industry.”

Criterion employs more than 450 professionals across its focus areas – cybersecurity, cloud/data center management, IT infrastructure operations and systems engineering.

“We take great pride in what we have built, and the growth Criterion has achieved by supporting the federal government through an outcomes-focused approach that embraces modern solutions that ultimately improve and optimize service delivery,” said Criterion CEO Promod Sharma. “The opportunity to join forces with the talented team at Cherokee Federal and fuel continued growth and sophistication is truly exciting.”
