FREMONT, CA: Montreal, Quebec, and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada - Above Security, global IT security service provider, decided to continue its strategic domestic and global expansion through the acquisition of Seccuris, Information Assurance Integrator and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) with offices in Canada and the U.S.

The merged entities create the only pure-play MSSP with two Security Operations Centers (SOCs) in Canada providing complete coast-to-coast coverage, and servicing its customers in both official languages, English and French. Above Security, thus will have over 130 employees offering its information security services in more than 45 countries in three languages: English, French and Spanish.

Customers of both companies will not see any variation of level of service. By integrating these two entities and service offerings, the merged organizations will continue to serve their respective customers from Montreal and Winnipeg, and will provide them with additional services and value.

 As a result of combining the two entities and service offerings, the merged organizations will continue to serve their respective customers from Montreal and Winnipeg. Michael Legary, founder and chairman of Seccuris, will be joining Above Security’s Board of Directors, and Geoff Besko, Seccuris CEO, will be joining Above Security’s executive team.

“We are very excited to join forces with the Seccuris team to build a company focused on customer value and service. This acquisition perfectly achieves our goal of complementing our strong international presence with domestic growth, but above all our two companies share similar cultures and values, which makes this move feel very natural,” says Ray Georges Chehata, president and chief executive officer of Above Security.
