Peraton acquires aaS business of Herndon tech company
Peraton acquired ViON Corp.'s as-a-service business Wednesday
Herndon-based federal contractor Peraton Inc. acquired the as-a-service business of Herndon-based IT company ViON Corp., it announced Wednesday.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Peraton acquired ViON’s cloud business and its employees, adding to its storage, computing and network capacity. The company also acquired the business’s contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense, civilian agencies and state governments.
“ViON pioneered the delivery of the first aaS cloud solution to the federal government and has built a strong business on that foundation,” Stu Shea, Peraton chairman, president and CEO, said in a statement. “With these additional capabilities, along with new employees who share our values and customers’ missions, we will solve the biggest challenges facing government and we’ll do it in a way that makes the best use of their resources.”
Peraton Inc. has about 22,000 employees across more than 90 locations. It grew out of Veritas Capital’s 2017 acquisition of the former government services business Harris Corp. This year, Peraton acquired Chantilly-based federal IT contractor Perspecta Inc. for $7.1 billion and bought Northrop Grumman Corp.’s federal IT and mission support services business for $3.4 billion.
