OTTAWA, ON, June 8, 2021 /CNW/ – Field Effect, a global cyber security company specializing in intelligence-grade protection for small and medium organizations, and PG Solutions, a leading information technology company providing state-of-the-art software solutions for smart cities across Quebec, today announced their partnership to deliver comprehensive monitoring, detection, and response services to Quebec municipalities.
The shift to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with many cities’ ongoing digital transformation have significantly increased vulnerabilities and attackable points for municipalities. Given the nature of the personal and confidential information they deal with, municipalities are attractive targets for ransomware actors.
“Municipalities are at the forefront of innovation, but like many other organizations, cyber security can often be an after-thought in their digital transformation,” says Andrew Milne, Chief Revenue Officer at Field Effect. “PG Solutions recognizes this gap, and the security challenges their clients are facing. Together we will provide advanced protection to municipalities across Quebec in the face of this ever-evolving threat landscape.”
Covalence is a plug-and-play managed detection and response (MDR) solution that provides advanced monitoring and protection across an organization’s entire IT infrastructure, including networks, devices, and cloud-based applications. By partnering with Field Effect, PG Solutions customers benefit from a cost-effective, easy-to-manage, intelligence-grade security solution.
“Over the years, we’ve seen a number of our customers become victims of cyber attacks and we’ve seen firsthand the impact this has had on the whole ecosystem.” says Daniel Rondy, Executive Vice-President at PG Solutions. “In partnering with Field Effect, we are able to offer our customers a holistic security solution that not only provides comprehensive protection, but helps alleviate the budgetary and skill challenges that many face when it comes to cyber security.”
The partnership between PG Solutions and Field Effect will help to address the increasing number of Quebec municipalities who have fallen victim to cyber attacks since 2019.
