Moelis Capital Partners (MCP), the private equity business affiliated with Moelis & Company, today announced the acquisition of CyberCore Technologies (“CyberCore”), a leading provider of information technology services to the federal government and intelligence community with expertise in cyber security, systems integration and secure supply chain management.
Headquartered in Elkridge, Maryland, CyberCore’s supply chain management services include the secure procurement, installation, integration and management of complex IT systems to streamline customers’ acquisition and refresh cycles. CyberCore also provides a full suite of IT managed services, including network engineering and architecture, systems engineering and lifecycle management. CyberCore supports numerous long-term IT engagements, including some of the largest IT contracts to the defense and intelligence communities. Approximately 80 per cent of CyberCore’s more than 200 employees are high-level engineers, working to ensure the security of critical customer IT infrastructure. The company has recently added a new state-of-the-art facility with a cutting-edge integration center and lab to fully support the company’s intelligence community customers.
