SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced that it has acquired SecureInfo Corporation, a leading provider of products and solutions for securing cyberspace, for $17.5 million cash, with the potential for up to an additional $2 million in consideration to be paid if specifically agreed to future financial objectives are achieved. For the calendar year 2011, SecureInfo is expected to generate adjusted EBITDA of approximately $2.5 million.

Based in Northern Virginia, just outside the nation's capital, SecureInfo is a pure-play cyber security company specializing in assisting defense, intelligence, civilian government and commercial customers to identify, understand, document, manage, mitigate and protect against cyber security risks while reducing information security costs and achieving compliance with applicable regulations, standards and guidance.

Customers include the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and large commercial customers, including market leading cloud computing service providers.

In addition to its portfolio of advanced cyber security solutions and services, SecureInfo has developed and markets SecureInfo RMS®, a proprietary commercial off the shelf (COTS) software product that simplifies and automates the Security Authorization process. By enabling organizations to create a standardized Security Authorization program, SecureInfo RMS dramatically reduces the time and cost demands associated with compliance; supports management reporting; and facilitates sharing of critical information between agencies and departments. SecureInfo RMS will be integrated into Kratos' NeuralStar® family of Situational Awareness, Cyber Security and Network Operations Management products, expanding the compliance profile within NeuralStar's 360° common operational picture of mission-critical operations.

"The addition of SecureInfo further boosts our cyber security business which exceeds $100 million in annual revenue across our products and product-related service activities," stated Phil Carrai, President of Kratos Technology and Training Solutions. "Our synergies could not fit better with SecureInfo as it enhances both the Technology and Training sides of our business. SecureInfo's sole focus is cyber security, and the company's deep knowledge of front-line cyber security issues will help us advance the NeuralStar products, as well as our cyber warfare solutions and the security capabilities built into the satellite communications products from our recently acquired Integral Systems group. Additionally, as recognized experts in Continuous Monitoring and Securing the Cloud, SecureInfo will be a key component in helping Kratos deliver advanced solutions for these key growth areas."

"We are extremely excited to be combining forces with Kratos," said Christopher Fountain, President & CEO of SecureInfo. "Our deep cyber security domain expertise is highly complementary to the Kratos Technology and Training Solutions business and other businesses within Kratos. In addition, the combined companies enjoy strong customer relationships across the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Education and many other agencies. Most importantly, Kratos shares our passion for securing cyberspace in support of each customer's mission and will allow us to more rapidly expand the number of customers we serve."
