Tresys CEO Gary Latham said, "Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for our Company. Tresys has made great strides in developing the infrastructure and product offering we need to take the Company to the next level. Under Behrman's ownership, we will be able to more fully develop our sales and marketing organization, continue to expand our technology portfolio and achieve the scale to compete as a prime contractor for critical cybersecurity initiatives in government and critical infrastructure. I want to thank our entire team for everything they have done to get us to this point. As the Company has evolved and expanded over the years, we have worked together to build and maintain a unique culture that serves our customers well and makes Tresys a special place to work."
