VARS and Terranova Security Join Forces to Better Protect SMEs

VARS and Terranova Security Join Forces to Better Protect SMEs from Cyber Attacks

MONTRÉAL, February 21, 2022 – VARS, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s cybersecurity division, and Terranova Security are proud to announce that they are enhancing an alliance for the benefit of Quebec SMEs, by placing people at the heart of data protection.

Recognized by prestigious Gartner, Terranova Security’s world-class cybersecurity awareness program, previously designed for large entities, is now available to local small and medium-sized enterprises through fully managed VARS programs at tailored prices. This is a timely service, as organizations are increasingly becoming targets of attacks and cybersecurity talent is in short supply.

Since March 2020, the heavy use of technology tools by workers has opened the door to cybercriminals. Threats are ever more sophisticated and constantly evolving. Unfortunately, humans are often the gateway to these attacks due to specific behaviours that put the business at risk.

“SMEs continue to be prime targets for cyber attacks. That’s why organizations must have the requisite knowledge and tools to ensure their sensitive information is protected from all cyber threats. This process must be supported by empowering security awareness training that focuses on behaviour change as a means of reducing the human risk factor. Terranova Security is proud to support VARS to deploy this solution in the Quebec market and help organizations train their cyber heroes,” says Mathieu Ouellette, Vice-Presdient, Sales (CSO) at Terranova Security.

“With this enhanced collaboration renewal, VARS becomes a preferred partner of Terranova Security and reiterates its leadership as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). We are particularly proud to be able to offer local SMEs solutions that reflect their needs and address the lack of in-house resources they face,” says Guillaume Caron, VARS President and CEO.
