SOS International (SOSi) announced on Wednesday that the company has acquired the Vykin Corporation, a business specializing in providing communications, intelligence and IT support to the Department of Defense (DoD) and the intelligence community.
â€œThis acquisition adds a talented team of professionals to the SOSi family with a similar culture, mutual values, and shared vision for the future,â€ said Julian Setian, SOSi president and CEO and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient. â€œIt also strengthens our current IT and network engineering qualifications and makes us responsible for developing the DoDâ€™s mission partner environment, which facilitates communications with our international allies around the globe.â€
The acquisition provides SOSi with a prime spot on the Defense Intelligence Agencyâ€™s (DIA) Enhanced Solutions for the IT Enterprise (E-SITE) contract and a National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) contract supporting its Scaled Agile Framework Enterprise (SAFe) and cloud development requirements.
SOSi is now at the forefront of the Defense Departmentâ€™s most ambitious programs, to build and manage a network of digital information sharing and communication systems with our international allies. The company is also certified by the National Security Agency (NSA) to integrate commercial network solutions in classified National Security Systems (NSS) environments.
SOSiâ€™s acquisition of Vykin continues to expand the companies global footprint into the Pacific, Southwest Asia and Europe and significantly strengthens the companyâ€™s IT and intelligence capabilities, in particular, cloud development supporting command and control (C2) and intelligence systems.
