Herndon tech company buys Vienna-based IT defense biz from AT&T
Tyto Athene acquires AT&T's Government Solutions Inc. division
Herndon-based systems integrator Tyto Athene announced Wednesday it will acquire AT&T’s Vienna-based Department of Defense-focused IT professional services business, also known as Government Solutions Inc.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Making up a small slice of AT&T’s federal business, the division acquired by Tyto provides IT professional services to DOD customers. The sale to Tyto also includes a few selected other contracts requiring IT professional services.
The transaction is expected to close at the end of the first quarter or early in the second quarter of 2021.
Tyto Athene was founded in August 2018 when Arlington Capital Partners acquired the government solutions division of Black Box Corp., and in 2019 Tyto Athene acquired Island Information Technology consultants, which provides communications services to the intelligence community. Arlington Capital Partners invests out of a $1.7 billion fund.
Its latest acquisition will allow the company to provide services for all-domain operations for U.S. national defense strategy.
The combined company will employ approximately 1,200 people and have 18 offices worldwide.
