WASHINGTON, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, a leading national cybersecurity firm headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, celebrates the launch of their new federal division by announcing the opening of a new office in Washington to better service their federal customers.
The opening of the new office, located at 1655 North Fort Myer Dr., Suite 700, Arlington, VA, coincides with a recent Bloomberg Government report recognizing Sword & Shield as the federal government's top insider threat vendor, with more than $531 million in total insider threat contract obligations for fiscal years 2012 – 2016.
"Federal contracts have been a steady, growing aspect of our business for many years," said John McNeely, president and CEO of Sword & Shield Enterprise Security.

We're excited to have an official presence in our nation's capital and look forward to improving our current relationships and developing new federal partnerships."

Clients of Sword & Shield Federal include the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, the Veterans Administration, and Health and Human Services.
