CHELMSFORD, Mass., Feb. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:MRCY) (www.mrcy.com), announced that its headquarters facility in Chelmsford, Mass., as well as its facilities in Hudson, N.H., Manteca, Calif., and Cypress, Calif. each received “Superior” security ratings in recent vulnerability assessments conducted by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Security Service (DSS). For three of the four facilities, these represent multiple consecutive “Superior” ratings, the highest awarded to defense contractors by DSS. Currently, fewer than 10 percent of the approximately 13,500 facilities overseen by the DSS receive a Superior rating. Including these most recent ratings, Mercury has received an aggregate of twelve “Superior” ratings across numerous facilities.
“We are proud and honored to receive these Superior ratings, and appreciate the high level of trust that the U.S. government places in our facilities, our processes and our employees,” said Gerry Haines, Executive Vice President of Mercury Systems. “These ratings demonstrate our employees’ continued unwavering commitment to national security and our continuous focus on principles of industrial security excellence designed to protect technology and information critical to the men and women putting their lives on the line for our nation.”
According to the DSS, a Superior rating is reserved for contractors that consistently and fully implement the requirements of the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) in an effective fashion, resulting in a security posture that is superior to other contractors of similar size and complexity. The facility must have documented procedures that heighten the security awareness of employees and foster a spirit of cooperation within the security community.
