“This transaction represents companies looking for high-end, differentiated capabilities and solutions in key growth areas like cyber,” John Song, a managing director at Baird, told GovConWire.

“Huntington Ingalls is a great home for G2 to cross sell their capabilities and innovation to a much broader base of customers,” Song added.

Green, president of HII’s technical solutions unit, said the company will leverage G2’s capabilities and group of cyber professionals to expand its offerings to current agency customers.

“G2 brings a valuable combination of innovation and technical expertise that has enabled it to solve complex security problems for highly sophisticated government clients,” he noted.

G2 provides platforms and services across national cyber defense, cyber analytics, computer network exploitation and distributed analytics areas.
