Huntington Ingalls Industries said today it has acquired cybersecurity firm G2, which will join the company's technical solutions division.

HII did not disclose the terms of the deal.

Andy Green, who heads the technical solutions division, told Inside Defense today the purchase of G2, which specializes in national cyber defense, computer network exploitation, cyber analytics and the distributed analytic platform, adds about 130 employees to the group.

"The vast majority have advanced degrees, the vast majority are very highly cleared," he said.

Green said G2 would become part of HII's mission-driven innovative solutions, which is comprised primarily of the Camber business Huntington Ingalls acquired two years ago.
