KeyLogic Systems, an IT services and engineering firm, has acquired CrossResolve, a government advisory and strategy services organization focused on biometrics, forensics and identity programs.
Terms of the transaction, which marks KeyLogic’s first company acquisition, were not disclosed.
“It has always been our goal for KeyLogic to provide our customers with the best possible solutions, and that’s why we’ve never had a one-time customer,” says Jon Hammock, CEO, KeyLogic Systems. “The acquisition of CrossResolve and its unique offering of biometrics and identity expertise will further strengthen KeyLogic’s capabilities in those areas. Bringing the talented CrossResolve team into the KeyLogic fold will allow us to serve our clients even better.”
KeyLogic, based here, plans to build upon CrossResolve’s contracts and relationships supporting the federal government, which includes the FBI, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, among others.
In 2016, KeyLogic hired J. Kevin Reid, a former FBI executive, to spearhead the company’s focus into biometrics and cybersecurity.
“My objective since joining KeyLogic last year was to build beyond existing capabilities and deliver even more value to customers,” says Reid, who serves as vice president of national security and CIO. “My experience at the FBI focusing on biometrics, combined with the past performance and expertise from CrossResolve, has me very optimistic for the positive impact to KeyLogic and how we can develop more innovative and cost-effective ways for federal agencies to manage their security risks.”
As part of the acquisition, CrossResolve founder Valerie Evanoff will become a strategic partner to the KeyLogic team where she will serve in an advisory role to continue her focus on providing biometric subject matter expertise and the strategic guidance that CrossResolve customers have come to expect.
Evanof is a recognized leader in the fields of biometrics, forensics, identity management and identity intelligence, having served in support of numerous FBI biometric initiatives across the FBI Science and Technology Branch. Prior to her federal service, Evanoff was the CEO of Biometric Services Int’l (BSI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Biometric Security Project (NBSP).
