Technology consultancy firm Capgemini has announced that it has agreed to acquire Leidos Cyber, the commercial cybersecurity division of Leidos, a leading US scientific engineering defense company.

“Leidos Cyber is a pioneer in the field of cybersecurity. It defined the market in protecting the industrial control ecosystem for the mission critical infrastructure needs of global enterprises,” comments Paul Hermelin, Chairman and CEO, Capgemini.

“Its world class security expertise and status as a trusted advisor to many Fortune 500 leaders makes it totally complementary to Capgemini’s global cybersecurity practice.

Capgemini will use the acquisition to bolster its cybersecurity capabilities across North America, simultaneously adding to the firm’s network of 200,000 employees across 40 countries.

“Capgemini’s well-established security services portfolio coupled with its global presence makes it a natural home for our commercial cybersecurity team,” comments Robert Meindl, President, Leidos Cyber.

“Not only will we be able to play our part in augmenting the North America cybersecurity practice but we also look forward to adding value to the global security provisions of Capgemini’s clients around the world.”

The transaction is expected to close before the end of 2018.
