A2I Acquisition Adds Cyber Intelligence to Redhorse Portfolio

Redhorse Corporation has added cyber and engineering expertise to its current data products portfolio, following its acquisition of the Gainesville, Virginia-based Allied Associates International.

According to John Zangardi, Redhorse CEO,  a 4×24 member and two-time Wash100 winner, merging A21’s capabilities with Redhorse’s analytics expertise establishes a national security platform for solutions to the “most complex challenges.” 

The client base for A2I’s data and intelligence extraction software, technical products and services includes the defense, federal law enforcement and intelligence sectors, Redhorse said.

The current A2I management team, which oversees 500 employees, will continue running the company and will operate it as a Redhorse business unit. 

A2I CEO Aaron Winters said the merger with Redhorse is “highly complementary” and will lead to new opportunities in customer services.

Blue Delta Capital Partners represented the Arlington, Virginia-based Redhorse in the acquisition, while Baird was A2I’s financial adviser.

In January 2022, the McLean, Virginia-based Blue Delta Capital made a minority investment in Redhorse to help the technology services provider step up its growth plans.
