Converged Security Solutions Acquires Maverick Cyber-Defense, LLC

August 13, 2019

Converged Security Solutions (CSS) is acquiring Virginia-based cybersecurity company, Maverick Cyber-Defense, LLC. CSS will further expand its end-to-end converged security solutions with the addition of Maverick’s leading cyber defense services. This is CSS’ third acquisition in a year as it continues to grow its presence in the market.

Maverick delivers world-class cyber defense services to DOD and the intelligence communities, state and local markets, and the commercial industry using a prevention-based approach to cybersecurity. They assess risks and vulnerabilities, build a strong security program with clients, and execute it to eliminate potential threats before they become serious incidents. Their services include cyber operations, continuous validation, exercises and training.

The addition of Maverick’s services and team of subject matter experts is a critical addition to CSS’ end-to-end converged security solutions. Maverick’s three lines of business enable a more comprehensive and expansive security offering from CSS.

“We could not be more excited about our future,” said Robert Bagnall, Founder and CEO of Maverick. Our customers will benefit from CSS’ broad range of converged security solutions, innovative technology investments, and world class team.”

Bill Sabo, COO of CSS added, “Maverick’s leading cyber defense services and proven reputation complement CSS’ security strategy and will allow us to provide an expanded value proposition for our customers. We are delighted to welcome Maverick to CSS.”

Two private equity firms, Hillcrest Holdings Inc. and Akoya Capital LLC are providing growth capital to CSS to support their innovative growth strategies and the Maverick acquisition.
