ECS Federal acquires InfoReliance

ECS Federal, LLC of Fairfax, VA announced on April 18 the acquisition of InfoReliance, a leading provider of cybersecurity, cloud computing, software engineering solutions and managed services.

George Wilson, CEO of ECS Federal said, “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. 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 is now providing cybersecurity solutions and active cyber defense to the Navy, Army, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, Defense Health Agency and the Intelligence community. The acquisition of InfoReliance also expands ECS’s agile software delivery capability supporting the Navy, USMC, USPS, FBI, the Intelligence Community and DOL.

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. Together they bring more competition to commercial and government markets, in particular across ECS’s highly sought after Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) including 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 Wilson. He stated, “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. 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.”
