Skyview Capital last Wednesday said it acquired Fidelis Cybersecurity Inc.
from a group of investors, adding a pure play cyber security firm to its portfolio.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Fidelis Cybersecurity, which is based in Maryland, has more than 250 employees.
General Dynamics [GD] acquired Fidelis in 2012 when it had 70 employees and then sold it in 2014 to the private equity firm Marlin Equity Partners to stay focused on its core government customers. The cyber security company, which primarily serves large commercial customers and some government clients, had 180 employees at the time GD divested the business.
Fidelis has capabilities in threat detection, hunting, incident response, data science and threat research.
Skyview said it will partner with Fidelis to help it expand.
“With the ever-increasing complexity of digital environments and the pace of cyber threats across the world, we see an opportunity to build upon Fidelis’ impressive technology and solidify its position within the IT security industry,” Alex Soltani, chairman and CEO of Skyview, said in a statement. He also said that Skyview is looking to help Fidelis “identifying both organic and inorganic growth opportunities.”
