Southwind Capital is pleased to announce that DFW Capital Partners (“DFW”) has completed an investment in its client, Industrial Security Integrators (“IsI” or the “Company”). 

Based in Herndon, VA, IsI is a leading, turn-key provider of national security and information technology (“IT”) compliance workflow solutions to companies serving the US Defense Industrial Base. Leveraging its technology-based offerings, IsI provides its services via three operating divisions: Managed Security Services (“MSS”), Managed Network Services (“MNS”), and its propriety Security Control Software (“SEC-CON”). 

Led by career FSO expert, Paul Cella, IsI provides comprehensive, mission-critical IT compliance services to government contractors.  It handles the day-to-day security operations of its clients through its MSS offering, utilizing its proprietary and groundbreaking workflow software solution, SEC-CON.  Capitalizing on the recent cybersecurity maturity model certification (“CMMC”) regulations established by the government, IsI established its MNS offering to build and maintain CMMC compliance solutions for new and existing clients.  Combined, IsI’s suite of cutting-edge compliance and cybersecurity service offerings make it a vital, one-stop-shop for thousands of companies serving the government client and positions the Company for significant growth in the coming years. 

This transaction fits well with DFW’s thesis of investing in lower middle-market companies focused, among other things, on providing outsourced business services.
