On May 6, 2021, Perspecta, a government services provider, was successfully and completely acquired by Peraton. The result? A leading mission capability integrator and transformative enterprise IT provider that delivers trusted and highly differentiated national security solutions and technologies, which keep people safe and secure.

With the acquisition of Perspecta, Peraton gained new capabilities and resources that deliver increased value to their customers, provide new career opportunities for their employees and tackle complex critical missions around the globe and across the universe. 

As an advanced national security provider, the new Peraton can partner with government agencies in eight key areas:

  1. Intelligence

  3. Cybersecurity

  4. Defense Solutions

  5. Civilian Security & Public Services

  7. Homeland Security

  8. Peraton Labs (engineering and applied research)

According to Stu Shea, the Peraton chairman, president and CEO, the “new Peraton represents a truly transformative change for the industry, our customers, and each one of our employees.” 

“We have the right team, the right technology and the right scale to deliver against the biggest challenges facing [the] government,” continues Shea. “Our highly skilled and diverse team provides secure, repeatable and differentiated solutions aligned to our customers’ goals. We will fuse mission-enabling services with market-leading enterprise offerings and solutions to identify the best use of new technology and help customers achieve positive business outcomes.”
