Xator Buys Merlin’s Professional Services Unit in Govt, Critical Infrastructure Market Push

Information technology and security services provider Xator has bought the professional services business of Englewood, Colorado-based cybersecurity company Merlin International for an undisclosed sum.

Reston, Virginia-based Xator said in a Dec. 1 news release the acquisition would help expand its presence in the government and critical infrastructure markets.

Merlin’s professional services group works to provide network operations, infrastructure, cybersecurity and enterprise applications support to federal agency clients.

Xator CEO David Scott said the transaction would help broaden the company’s network operations and cybersecurity portfolio as well as its health IT critical infrastructure footprint.

Merlin said Monday the sale of its PSG business is a part of the company’s strategy to focus solely on technology development and cybersecurity platforms.

David Phelps, chairman and CEO of Merlin, said the divestiture would help the firm expand in health care and government cybersecurity markets.
