(“WOTI”) as part of its mission to provide complex, high-end, technology-driven solutions to the Defense and Intelligence Communities.
WOTI is a leading provider of identity resolution, cyber security and data analytics to federal government customers, including the Intelligence Community, Department of Defense, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security. Formed in 1996 and headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland, the Company’s highly credentialed employees provide custom software development and IT solutions, solving complex problems involving terabytes of data. The Company’s proprietary WAREMAN® software is a leading technology supporting large-scale data analytics, retrieval, and exploitation utilizing cutting edge advanced algorithms and entity management systems.
“WOTI is the cornerstone of Arlington’s strategy to build a pre-eminent solutions provider addressing critical national security needs,” said Jeffrey Freed, Partner at Arlington. “WOTI’s innovative solutions provide Intel Community analysts with the tools needed to address time-sensitive threats. The Company’s range of capabilities protects our nation’s citizens and cyber infrastructure.”
Michael Lustbader, Partner at Arlington, said, “The attempted Christmas day and Times Square bombings highlight the critical importance of technological solutions that ‘connect the dots’ to identify potential threats. WOTI’s WAREMAN® Pro software works in some of our nation’s most sensitive environments in support of these mission-critical government requirements. With Arlington’s support and relationships, WOTI is well positioned to capitalize on the demand for rapid identity resolution and large-scale data analysis.”
