Deloitte has announced it has acquired “substantially” all the assets of Sentek Consulting, Inc., a San Diego-based systems engineering and cybersecurity firm primarily serving the U.S. Navy.
Mike Canning, US Government & Public Services Industry leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, said: “The acquisition of Sentek Global’s business will expand Deloitte’s existing presence in San Diego, while also bolstering our current mission-focused systems engineering capabilities and cyber offerings to other military branches and federal agencies.”
Eric Basu, CEO and founder, Sentek Global, added, “Sentek Global and Deloitte share many common values, not the least of which is providing high quality services and solutions for the agencies that serve our country.
“We are joining Deloitte to help our government clients solve complex systems engineering and cybersecurity challenges, while also accelerating the scaling of our services for defense, security and justice sector organizations.”
Heather Reilly, Deloitte’s defense, security and justice sector leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, added: “Deloitte is focused on delivering mission-relevant, complex and technology-enabled engineering, analytics and transformation solutions to our clients in the Department of Defense (DoD).
“The addition of Sentek Global’s capabilities expands our complement of skilled system engineering and cybersecurity professionals that will enhance DoD’s ability to accelerate its engineering and acquisition processes to ensure effective and reliable systems for our warfighters. And, it enables us to welcome those Sentek Global professionals who are former members of the Armed Forces into our existing veteran workforce.”
Mark Nace, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory’s Government and Public Services leader for the Cyber and Strategic Risk practice and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP, said: “As cyber threats to all organizations—particularly U.S. federal agencies—continue to proliferate and become more complex, we’re investing to help our clients prevent, detect and remediate those emerging threats. The addition of Sentek Global’s capabilities allows us to do just that.”
