SIXGEN acquires Secure-EE

On July 2, SIXGEN, a full-spectrum solutions provider of cybersecurity products and expertise to U.S. national intelligence, defense and critical infrastructure customers, announced its acquisition of Secure Enterprise Engineering, Inc. (Secure-EE). Secure-EE is a leading provider of bespoke cybersecurity products and services across various domains, and marks SIXGEN’s first acquisition following Washington Harbour Partners’ (WHP) investment in the company in November 2023. This acquisition brings unique capabilities, software products, tier I engineers and longstanding customer relationships, accelerating SIXGEN’s strategic vision to empower the digital warfighter.

“I am thrilled to combine forces with Laura, Shawn and the entire Secure-EE team to further amplify SIXGEN’s impact on the national mission,” said Jack Wilmer, CEO of SIXGEN. “Secure-EE has exceptionally differentiated proficiencies that are complementary to SIXGEN’s growth objectives and product roadmaps. This combination of talent and highly complementary IP creates a leading team and strengthens our ability to address the mission needs of our national partners and customers.”

Secure-EE utilizes its proprietary intellectual property (“IP”) to deliver a comprehensive suite of capabilities across multiple software infrastructure layers and cyber environments, including data management, provisioning, cyber tooling and command & control. Grounded in its unified platform of data management and integration based on the Joint Cyber Warfighting Architecture (“JCWA”), Secure-EE enables operators to focus on mission objectives rather than system configuration and infrastructure management. Additionally, the company’s Distant Rook platform, designed for automated provisioning of joint deployable hunt kits, further enhances the impact of SIXGEN’s RAVEN ecosystem, offering customers rapid integration of new tools for dynamically evolving missions.

“SIXGEN is the ideal strategic partner for Secure-EE,” said Laura Montano, Secure-EE Founder & CEO. “I am incredibly proud of what we have been able to accomplish to date, and where we’re headed with SIXGEN and Washington Harbour. This combination will enable us to deliver an expanded set of capabilities and resources to both new and existing customers as we focus on achieving an even greater mission impact,” said Shawn Oles, chief technology officer at Secure-EE. Both Laura and Shawn will join as senior members of the SIXGEN team, along with their extensive engineering and technical talent.

This strategic partnership will enable deeper collaborations on the rapid development of innovative technologies and the deployment of unique capabilities to a growing set of customers and end users. The companies share similar cultures and values, focusing on mission impact and cutting-edge technologies, and are committed to attracting and developing the best talent in the industry, all while building the new industry standard for multi-domain cyber operations.

“We have been extremely impressed with the vision and leadership of the SIXGEN team, and their relentless desire to bring modern solutions to critical national security missions,” said Mina Faltas, Washington Harbour’s founder and chief investment officer. “The combination of SIXGEN and Secure-EE brings together two cybersecurity leaders, now poised to make significant impacts for our country.”
