HERNDON, VA — July 28, 2017 – Peraton has been confirmed as the new name of the former Harris Corporation Government Services business, which was acquired by Veritas Capital earlier this year.
Peraton is based on the idea that the operations the company supports are essential to national security. The name is a construct of the prefix “per,” which means “thoroughly,” and the word “imperative,” reflecting the importance of our customers’ missions.
The company responds to rapidly evolving challenges in the national security market with innovative solutions. Peraton experts, scientists, and engineers are entrusted to partner with government customers to overcome critical challenges and deliver high-quality results in Space, Intelligence, Cyber/SIGINT, Homeland Security, Defense, and Communications markets.
“The name Peraton represents a shared mission to protect and promote freedom around the world,” said Stu Shea, Peraton CEO. “This company serves as a disruptive force to traditional integrators in the national security market by consistently delivering groundbreaking solutions. We challenge the status quo, embrace change, and solve problems through innovation, agility, and creative thinking.”
Veritas Capital acquired the Government Services business from Harris Corporation in April 2017. Peraton has been operating as MHVC Acquisition Corporation since the sale closed.
Peraton provides innovative, reliable solutions to the nation’s most sensitive and mission-critical programs and systems. As a trusted provider of highly differentiated space, intelligence, cyber, defense, homeland security, and communications capabilities, Peraton is a critical partner to the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, and select federal agencies and commercial entities. Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, the company employs 3,500 people across the U.S. and Canada. Visit Peraton.com/News and follow @PeratonCorp on Twitter for news and updates.
