Polaris Alpha, a portfolio company of investment firm Arlington Capital Partners, has boughtÂ cyber, network and software engineering services providerÂ Intelesys for an undisclosed sum in a push to expand presence in theÂ cyber and signals intelligence market.
Elkridge, Maryland-based Intelesys works withÂ intelligence community customers to help them fulfill mission critical cyber operations through the use ofÂ computer network operations tools and methods, Polaris Alpha said Thursday.
Arlington Capital Partners establishedÂ Polaris Alpha in November after the Washington-based investment firmÂ merged its portfolio companyÂ EOIR TechnologiesÂ with data analysis technology providerÂ Intelligent Software SolutionsÂ andÂ cybersecurity firmÂ Proteus Technologies.
“The acquisition is a natural fit to complement Polaris Alpha’s existing cyber defense offering, ” said Polaris Alpha CEOÂ Peter Cannito.

Intelesys founders Geoffrey Bloom andÂ John Szakmeister will serve as senior vice presidents within Polaris Alpha’sÂ cyber and SIGINTÂ business unit.
