Camber Corporation Acquires i2S to Meet Growing Cyber Security Needs of Intelligence Communities

With Cyber Terror Threats Now Top National Priority, Camber Focuses on Complete, Failsafe Strategies for All Intelligence Communities

HUNTSVILLE, AL--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - Camber Corporation, provider of cyber security, subject matter experts, engineering solutions, acquisition management, full-service education, and training to defense audiences worldwide, has acquired the Columbia, MD-based intelligence analysis and solutions firm i2S, Inc. i2S will become part of Camber's National Security Group.

With demand soaring for cyber security expertise, Camber is proud to have the opportunity to be involved in i2S' exciting intelligence community (IC) work. i2S' core competencies include intelligence analysis, knowledge management, systems engineering, advanced software development, and enterprise architecture expertise.

"Combining Camber's cyber security expertise, along with i2S' analysis talent, creates a solid platform on which to build our cyber enterprise," said Ken Foxton, Camber vice president of National Intelligence Programs.

Camber is well established in the IC as a provider of intelligence analysis and cyber security. They provide meaningful and essential support, which includes security testing of classified networks, policy development, and program management support. Camber has developed security tools that are recognized throughout the IC. In conjunction with the IC, DoD, and numerous federal agencies, Camber contributes to the security and integrity of the nation's most critical computer assets.

"The combination of the two firms provides Camber with an excellent platform in the intelligence community to address growing issues, including the cyber threat," said Randall Meyers, CEO and founder of i2S.

"i2S is the gold standard for intelligence capability, and we are ready to use Camber's corporate infrastructure to enhance i2S' operational maturity," said Bruce Schoemer, Senior Vice President for Camber's National Security Group. "Acquiring i2S is a perfect synergy, as we can combine our broad based capabilities with i2S' proven IC talent, opportunities, and customer sets."

The alliance of the two companies is made complete with a shared customer-focused, employee-driven approach to making their customers successful. With its well-known and highly regarded senior consultants, i2S is well poised to join Camber's base of more than 1,900 employees.

Camber plans to preserve the i2S brand, and will also bring i2S expertise into its existing customer base, such as the Unified Combatant Commands. The larger mission is to create a well respected, intelligence business supporting the IC, Defense Intelligence, and the rapidly growing Domestic Intelligence community, with additional focus on cyber security, law enforcement, and border protection.
