Contracting Company Opening New Cyber Facility in Augusta
Add Engility to the list of entities growing the Augusta cyber scene.
Engility, a private contracting company that provides services to U.S. government customers including the Department of Defense, intelligence community, federal and civilian agencies and space markets, is opening a new cyber facility in Augusta.
The company plans to seize on cyber capability and skills that have grown in Augusta. The office will also support customers at Fort Gordon.
“Not only will this office allow for better and more agile customer collaboration, the new location places us at the ground floor in a premier location for cyber leadership,” Scott Whatmough, Senior Vice President for Engility’s Defense Group, said in a statement.
Last week, Engility announced the establishment of five new “ENnovation Centers,” a Cyber ENnovation Center being one of them.
Engility has nearly 100 employees in the state of Georgia. The new facility will house the company’s program management staff that coordinates the efforts of those employees and seeks out top-level talent.
The Engility office will add to the blooming cyber community that is taking shape in Augusta. The Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center is projected to be completed during the summer of 2018. The $2.1 billion new headquarters for Army Cyber Command are expected to be completed and ready for occupation by 2020.
“A physical presence within Augusta allows us to more effectively adopt the latest technologies and solutions and apply them to customer missions anywhere in the world,” Whatmough said.
