Almost a year after its last merger, Arlington-based IT company C3 Integrated Solutions celebrated another major consolidation.

Last week, C3 announced its merger with Ingalls Information Security, a company based in Woodworth, Louisiana specializing in cybersecurity risk management for the defense industry.

C3 CEO Marc Pantoni says the merger is a response to evolving industry requirements concerning cybersecurity.

“Given how tightly integrated cybersecurity has become with day-to-day IT operations and compliance requirements, we believe it critical that we offer top-tier cybersecurity services that as part of our portfolio,” he wrote in a blog post.

The merger brings combines Ingalls’ expertise in Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) — a Dept. of Defense (DoD) benchmark for cybersecurity in government-contracted companies — with C3’s managed IT and Microsoft Cloud solutions, according to a separate blog post by Ingalls CEO and founder Jason Ingalls.

“With this merger, our clients can now turn to a single service partner for all their needs without sacrificing quality of service,” Pantoni said. “That means a single source of accountability, increased cost efficiencies, and fewer partners to manage.”

The merger, akin to last year’s, aims to help clients navigate new Dept. of Defense guidelines which were recently updated to ensure contractors and subcontractors comply with stringent cybersecurity standards to safeguard sensitive, unclassified information.

“With CMMC soon becoming a baseline contractual requirement, defense contractors are looking for a partner to support them through their entire compliance journey,” the joint release said.

“As cybersecurity, IT, and compliance become increasingly intertwined, members of the DIB can now turn to C3 as a single managed services partner for all their IT, cybersecurity, and compliance needs without sacrificing quality of service,” the release continued.
