Booz Allen Hamilton said today it has agreed to acquire cybersecurity firm Morphick.

The deal is meant to expand Booz Allen's managed security portfolio and improve its ability to counter advanced cyber threats, the contractor said.

Morphick's “platform, which analyzes the motivation and actions of attackers to thwart their attacks, assists companies in mitigating the challenges of the shortage of skilled cyber professionals and limitations of traditional, static defenses,” Booz Allen said, noting the deal bolsters the company's commercial strategy.

Morphick, based in Blue Ash, OH, has about 40 employees. The deal is expected to close by the end of the year.
