Bob Donahue, By Light

By Light Professional IT Services, LLC has acquired Phacil, a McLean, Virginia-based software, cybersecurity, systems engineering and managed services government provider.

The purchase expands Phacil’s core IT capabilities, taking advantage of the company’s government client base of nearly 20 years, according to the announcement.

“We are thrilled to acquire Phacil, which has a proven track record of excellent service and growth,” said By Light founder and CEO Bob Donahue. “Its diversified IT capabilities across a wide customer base make it an excellent fit with our company, and will allow us to expand our offering to better serve our customers.”

Phacil’s work includes modernizing and assessing IT systems, networks and data centers. The company also implements cloud and managed services to support web applications, infrastructure and project management. Additionally, it provides cybersecurity threat identification services and vulnerability testing. Phacil provides the software to support data migration, server hosting and service desk support for the Defense Department and civilian agencies as well.

By Light is a portfolio company of Sagewind Capital, the private equity firm that acquired By Light in 2017. Last year, By Light acquired engineering, cyber and IT service provider Axom Technologies.

The March 25 announcement didn’t disclose financial terms of the acquisition.
