STERLING, Va., March 28: CRYPTEK, Inc., a privately held developer and provider of security solutions announced today the company has received approval to acquire SSG's assets through the terms of the bankruptcy court.

The transition of all assets will be complete by the end of March 2007.

"We are excited about this acquisition for many reasons," states Bill Anderson, President and CEO for Cryptek. "By acquiring these assets we are continuing to expand our Security and TEMPEST product offerings to include such solutions as Secure Video and Video Conferencing Systems.
