Mission Critical Partners (MCP) acquired Secure Halo, a cybersecurity firm that provides an all-encompassing approach to enterprise risk and managing cybersecurity for federal, state and local government agencies and commercial entities.

The acquisition greatly expands MCP’s portfolio of managed cybersecurity services, strengthens its talent and capabilities, and increases its capacity to secure mission-critical environments and provide operational resiliency.

Secure Halo supports mission-critical federal agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD), to reduce cybersecurity vulnerabilities across the enterprise, including their networks and supply chains. Clients leverage the firm’s analytical and operational expertise to mitigate risk to operations and information systems from hybrid commercial and hostile threats. The recipient of eight cybersecurity awards, Secure Halo implements third-party risk management programs, increases the posture against insider threats and improves cybersecurity hygiene for Fortune 500 companies.

Founded in 2006, Secure Halo has received a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) SAFETY Act designation, as its cybersecurity assessments exceed the highest quality standards established by the DHS. Its highly experienced analysts have extensive knowledge regarding the underlying cause of cybersecurity risks and the implementation of mitigation strategies. The firm is trained in the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), a new unified cybersecurity standard for DOD contractors.

“Secure Halo’s leadership and highly experienced analysts combined with MCP’s experts and partners means that we can significantly expand upon what we are already doing, which is helping our clients mitigate risk, maintain resiliency, and optimize investments against evolving and persistent cyber threats,” said MCP President and CEO Darrin Reilly.

According to Reilly, MCP plans to establish Secure Halo’s Washington, D.C., metro office as MCP’s Center of Excellence for enhanced Secure Halo cyber risk capabilities, an elite group of seasoned analysts, technicians and cybersecurity experts.

“Becoming part of the MCP organization is an extraordinary opportunity for our clients and our employees,” said Sean Doherty, cofounder and president of Secure Halo. “The partnership provides us with a new ability to deliver additional innovative capabilities to clients, including a wide portfolio of professional and managed services that MCP can offer while at the same time provide growth opportunities for our professionals.”

Secure Halo is the latest in a series of acquisitions MCP has made since 2018 in order to build upon its professional and managed services portfolio. Recently completed acquisitions include justice consulting firm MTG Management Consultants, data integration services provider URL Integration, public safety consulting firm Black and Veatch Public Safety, and IT services provider Athena Advanced Networks.
