THE Winnipeg-based cyber-security firm Seccuris is merging with Montreal-based Above Security to form the largest firm of its type in Canada.
Seccuris founder Michael Legary said the combination of the two companies, which were roughly the same size, will allow it to become a more substantial player in the market.
"If all goes right, we will do three or four more acquisitions over the next 18 months," Legary said.
Above Security, has an operation centre in Montreal and also facilities in Mexico City and Switzerland. Seccuris has its main operations in Winnipeg with offices across the country and a growing number of offices in the U.S.
All the Seccuris staff is being retained. Legary said it is likely the firm will operate as Above Security and the Seccuris name will be dropped.
The merged entity will create the only pure-play managed security service provider in the country with two security operations centres -- one in Winnipeg and one in Montreal -- providing complete coast-to-coast coverage.
"There will be nothing like this in Canada." Legary said.
It will also be able to service its customers in both English and French. As a result, Above Security will have more than 130 employees offering its information-security services in more than 45 countries in three languages: English, French and Spanish.
