Science Applications International Corp. [SAIC] on Monday said it has agreed to acquire Koverse, which provides a scalable data management platform that enables artificial intelligence and machine learning for complex, sensitive data that SAIC plans to offer to its “security conscious customers.”

Terms of the pending deal were not disclosed. Koverse, which is based in Seattle, has 16 employees. Koverse’s leadership will remain with the company.

Koverse’s solutions enable centralized data storage regardless of sensitivity with appropriate access based on individual permissions and clearances.

An SAIC spokesman told Defense Daily that Koverse’s data management platform “is the only data lake solution on the market with a military-grade, multi-level security capability fully baked-in, a differentiator relative to other commercial data platforms. He said SAIC will have opportunities to leverage the data management platform across the federal defense, civilian and intelligence communities, “who are working to modernize their technology stacks and enable advanced applications.”

Nazzic Keene, SAIC’s CEO, said in a statement that “Koverse’s impressive track record among its commercial and government customers coupled with its unique data management platform makes it a rare gem that enriches our current data modernization offerings.”
