Deloitte said today that it has acquired almost all of the assets of Sentek Consulting, Inc., a San Diego-based systems engineering and cybersecurity company that mainly serves the United States Navy.
"The acquisition of Sentek Global's business will strengthen Deloitte's existing presence in San Diego while also expanding our current mission-focused systems engineering capabilities and cyber offerings to other military branches and federal agencies," said Mike Canning, US Government & Public Services Industry leader and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Deloitte's Defense, Security, and Justice sector head and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, Heather Reilly, said, "Deloitte is committed to providing mission-relevant, complex, and technology-enabled engineering, analytics, and transformation solutions to our Department of Defense customers (DoD). Sentek Global's skills complement our complement of experienced system engineering and cybersecurity experts, enhancing DoD's ability to accelerate engineering and acquisition procedures to guarantee effective and reliable systems for our warfighters. It also allows us to welcome Sentek Global professionals who have previously served in the armed forces into our veteran workforce."
Mark Nace, principal of Deloitte & Touche LLP and Government & Public Services leader for the Cyber & Strategic Risk practice at Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory, stated, "As cyber threats to all organizations, particularly U.S. federal agencies, increase and become more complex, we are investing to assist our clients in preventing, detecting, and minimizing those emerging threats. We can now do so due to the inclusion of Sentek Global's capabilities."
Sentek Global provides program management and integrated logistics services in addition to systems engineering and cybersecurity to the Defense, Security, and Justice sectors.
Sentek Global's CEO and founder, Eric Basu, said, "Sentek Global and Deloitte share many values, not the least of which is the provision of high-quality services and solutions to government agencies. We are partnering with Deloitte to assist our government clients in addressing complex systems engineering and cybersecurity issues, as well as to accelerate the scaling of our services for defense, security, and justice sector organizations."
Pure Storage | January 05, 2022
Pure Storage® , the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, today announced new momentum within the U.S. public sector as government plans for infrastructure modernization accelerate.
Pure is a trusted partner to essential government agencies across the intelligence, space, cyber, defense, civilian, health, state, local, and education markets. With more than 175 of the United States' 440 federal agencies relying on its services, Pure has breadth and depth of government customers and experience, serving agencies across all three branches of the U.S. Federal Government and three branches of the U.S. Department of Defense. At the state, local, and education (SLED) level, Pure has customer representation in 48 of the 50 U.S. states.
Pure Storage's public sector business achieved all-time highs in Q3 as its customer base and use case portfolio grew. New public sector customers from the quarter include:
A large agency within the Department of Treasury chose Pure to replace their legacy storage arrays with simple, scalable all-flash solutions that help solve its largest, most-complex data management challenges. Together, Pure and a strategic partner are providing the agency a true as-a-service experience with non-disruptive upgrades via our Evergreen™ program.
A core agency within the Department of Homeland Security chose Pure FlashBlade® to help power its advanced analytics and AI operations. This technology is central to the agency's mission of enhancing national security through innovation, intelligence, collaboration, and trust.
Commonwealth of Massachusetts adopted Pure-as-a-Service complete with FlashArray™, FlashStack® for Block Performance and Block Capacity, FlashBlade and the Portworx® Suite to containerize and modernize key applications. Armed with these advancements, the Commonwealth was able to modernize its infrastructure and application to support continuity of services to its agencies and the public.
Trends and developments in cloud transformation, ransomware, cybersecurity, DevOps, and artificial intelligence (AI) are all driving modernization demand within the public sector, across Federal, SLED, and Healthcare. Agencies are looking to implement hybrid cloud strategies that best serve their goals, moving some workloads to the cloud while repatriating others to on-premises, with containerization becoming increasingly essential. Accelerating this further, the American Rescue Plan, CARES act, and other government relief programs are enabling these organizations to invest more in building secure, resilient data centers that these new technologies require.
Pure has separated itself as a vendor of choice among public sector customers because its solutions and services deliver unmatched resilience and performance with the flexibility, scalability, and agility of the cloud, regardless of where their data lives.
"2022 will be the year of infrastructure investment and cloud transformation for the government, and Pure is the best positioned storage vendor to enable the public sector with an agile, resilient data platform delivered via a cloud operating model and secured by built-in data protection. We're proud to support federal and SLED customers as their trusted partner, facilitating their most strategic, future-proof path to IT modernization."
Mike Wiseman, VP of Americas Public Sector Sales, Pure Storage

The semiconductor industry is seeking a $37 billion financial aid package from the federal government in a bid to reduce the United States' dependance on China for computer chip technology, an idea that has gathered support as the coronavirus pandemic has exposed the dangers of a high-tech trade imbalance with Asia. The Wall Street Journal was the first to report the proposal, which is being prepared by the Semiconductor Industry Association.The aid package, which faces an uncertain fate in Congress, could potentially aid GlobalFoundries and other chip companies operating in New York with billions of dollars in block grants that would be available to states to bolster computer chip manufacturing.
