System High Corporation, a provider of security engineering, counterintelligence, intelligence and cybersecurity solutions across the aerospace, defense and government sector, has acquired ManageYOURiD, a specialist in identity management, risk mitigation and personal privacy services to commercial, government and individual consumers.

This is technology M&A deal number 732 that MSSP Alert and sister site ChannelE2E have covered so far in 2022. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

System High, based in Chantilly, Virginia, has 264 employees, according to its LinkedIn profile, and ManageYOURiD, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, has five.

More Power to Protect Personal Information

ManageYOURiD’s security platform will enable System High to expand its offerings to the critical infrastructure sectors of aerospace, defense and government. Founded in 2012 by Todd Drake and Jack Reis, ManageYOURiD now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of System High, according to a prepared statement.

ManageYOURiD will combine its capabilities with System High’s Enhanced Protection Methodologies, including:

  • Counter-insider threat
  • Supply chain risk management
  • Consulting services
  • Training
  • International security
  • Intellectual property protection

System High’s Focus on National Security

Jason Rigoli, partner of Enlightenment Capital and chairman of System High, described the advantages to the new partnership:

“We are excited about the new capabilities that ManageYOURiD brings to System High’s suite of offerings within their proactive protection domain. With the addition of ManageYOURiD’s platform and their talented team of engineers, System High will continue to set the standard for mid-tier federal businesses dedicated to protecting national security.”

Rob Howe, System High’s president and CEO, added:

“With increasingly complex threats touching every area of our lives, providing clients integrated solutions that successfully protect some of our country’s most sensitive efforts are crucial in preserving their most precious resources — their people, information, finances and assets.”

Previously, in January 2021, System High Corporation  acquired the technical, engineering, advisory and management support (TEAMS) business of Booz Allen Hamilton. Since 2019, System High has been backed by Enlightenment Capital, a Washington, D.C.-based private equity firm focused on the government sector.
