Washington D.C., Nov. 2, 2020 — The Acacia Group announced today that two of its portfolio companies were recently named Industry Innovator award winners for their groundbreaking technologies in the 2020 Government Innovation Awards presented by Defense Systems, FCW, GCN and Washington Technology. Applied Insight was recognized for its cloud testing and emulation platform, SHIFT, and ID Technologies was celebrated for its endpoint security platform, Archon. Both technologies have been used to support the federal government in tackling the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic by providing remote work solutions for national security customers.
“Fostering innovation has long been at the heart of Acacia’s investment approach across our portfolio,” said Gavin Long, partner with The Acacia Group. “As a result, all of our platform companies have had significant success with developing proprietary technologies that overcome major technical and cultural hurdles for their public sector and commercial customers. Today, their technologies are enabling mission progress for thousands of users across the federal government and industry, including newly remote workforces. These awards are fantastic recognition for our teams at Applied Insight and ID Technologies and validate our continued backing of their substantial product development programs.”
Both Archon and SHIFT are proprietary technologies that address some of the most critical needs facing the federal government today.
Applied Insight is an award winner for the second consecutive year, having been honored in 2019 for its innovative Altitude Managed Cloud platform.
