Kratos Defense and Security Solutions provides mission critical products, solutions and services for national and homeland security.

When Eric DeMarco came on board in 2003, Kratos (Nasdaq: KTOS) was focused on wireless communication networks and went by the name Wireless Facilities Inc. (WFI). As it switched focus to government defense contract work, it underwent a transformation spearheaded by DeMarco, who is now president and CEO.

In 2007, it changed names and became Kratos, which in Greek means the god of strength and power. Today, it specializes in providing advanced engineering, information technology, war fighter solutions, and security and surveillance systems for the federal government, and also for state and local agencies.
