As a part of its expansion process, Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced the acquisition of Blue Canopy, a data analytics, cybersecurity and application development firm. Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional and construction services.
Blue Canopy which excels in data analytics, cybersecurity and application development solutions in sectors such as education, healthcare, defense and intelligence communities has won various awards for its exceptional solutions. It was awarded the 2016 GovCon Contractor of the Year and has been recognised by the Department of Homeland Security and National Science Foundation.
Darren Kraabel, Jacobs Aerospace and Technology Senior Vice President stated, “We welcome the Blue Canopy team to Jacobs and the capabilities they bring to the table to help our clients work smarter while being safer and more secure.
When discussing digital solutions with our public and private sector clients, we encounter two recurring themes. First, the need to deliver data visualization and analytic solutions that allow operators to quickly identify areas for improvement and unlock the power of the data. Second, the need for comprehensive cybersecurity solutions that span the spectrum of compliance to managed services to forensics and resiliency. Blue Canopy brings solutions in all these areas to expand Jacobs’ capabilities.”
With this acquisition Blue Canopy will mark its entry into the federal civilian, financial and healthcare sectors while supporting JCE’s growth strategy. This move will also enhance the client base and global outreach of JCE, which employs over 54,000 people and include new solutions to its existing services.
