March 31, 2020 (Hanover, MD) – AboutWeb, LLC and Penacity, LLC have announced that they have decided to join forces. Effective today, March 31, 2020, Penacity has acquired AboutWeb as a wholly owned subsidiary. This creates a powerhouse combination of cybersecurity, DevOps, and recruiting solutions for this ever-changing world. It also allows for increased synergies between AboutWeb, a certified HUBZone company and Penacity, a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
AboutWeb, founded in 1998, is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions, information technology consulting, and product development. Its rich heritage includes providing IT solutions, IT training, and application development for government agencies, commercial entities, nonprofits, and associations.
“We have worked together for about a year now and the relationship and the synergies between our companies have been phenomenal,” said Robert G. Epstein, President and CEO of AboutWeb. “It is time to pass the torch to a new generational leader, Dr. Timothy Schilbach, so he can take both companies to the next level and meet the future requirements to manage cybersecurity and product development needs. Additionally, by combining synergies between our Cyberwarriors Program and the AboutWeb Cares program, we will have an incredible engine to generate social good by creating jobs and changing lives for citizens in our local, underutilized areas,” said Epstein, who will move from day to day operations as President and CEO of AboutWeb to serving on the Board of Directors.
Dr. Timothy Schilbach, Chief Hacker and Founder of Penacity, LLC, also commented, “combining forces with AboutWeb provides a market leading proposition, and an opportunity to further develop AboutWeb’s proprietary governance tool, TouchStone, which is in use at NIST and A2LA supporting FEDRAMP. This acquisition provides us with major growth opportunities, added capabilities, and extended service offering for our clients.”
