By Light Professional IT Services has acquired cyber training services contractor Metova Federal for an undisclosed sum.

“This acquisition will allow us to expand and diversify our cyber offering to better serve our customers,” Bob Donahue, CEO and founder of By Light, said in a statement published Friday.

Cabot, Ark.-based Metova Federal provides cyber training platforms, software development support, infrastructure design and installation, network engineering and other information technology services to federal government and commercial clients. The company offers a cyber attack emulation platform – CyberCENTS – designed to support state and federal agencies across multidomain environments.

The acquisition came two months after By Light purchased government IT services contractor Phacil and more than a year after its acquisition of Axom Technologies.

Arlington, Va.-based ByLight is a portfolio company of New York City-based private equity firm Sagewind Capital and provides professional services, software engineering platforms, hardware and other IT services to defense, civilian and commercial clients.
