GTEC has announced a branding change that will see the firm become known as Sotera Defense Solutions.

Originating in Greek mythology, the word “Sotera” is derived from Soter the spirit of safety, preservation and deliverance from harm.

The firm was recently acquired by private equity operation Ares Management for $315 million.
