A new service to protect SMEs from cyber threats

MONTRÉAL, January 28, 2020 – Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton announced the acquisition of VARS, recognized for its cutting-edge information security expertise. The firm is therefore positioning itself as a leader in cybersecurity advice and solutions for businesses in all sectors and of all sizes.

Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton said: “In today’s world, data protection is a major issue and all organizations need to manage cybersecurity risks. This new expertise within Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton will allow us to support our clients so that they can implement the required processes to prevent or recover from cyber attacks. The VARS acquisition is well aligned with the firm’s strategic plan to offer the highest level of digital and technological advisory services.”

VARS offers SMEs solutions to protect themselves against threats that could compromise data security, such as advanced security threat detection, 24/7 network monitoring, identity and access management solutions, security awareness and phishing simulations

Guillaume Caron, President and CEO of VARS stated: “No organisation is safe from cybercrime. We know that larger companies have access to more cybersecurity resources and solutions. Our goal is to offer the same sophisticated expertise to small and medium-sized businesses to protect themselves against potential and actual threats that can affect their operations, their reputation, their growth, and cause severe financial lost. We are pleased to join Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton to help businesses across Quebec protect their most valuable data and assets.”

The digital shift is generating new issues that need to be addressed proactively. The first step is to identify the security risks the organization is facing, assess whether it is compromised, eliminate existing threats and quickly implement a comprehensive plan to protect itself. All companies, large or small, must face these new issues and improve their cybersecurity posture to pursue growth and remain competitive.

The Grant Thornton global organization publishes its global revenues and announces 6.4% growth for 2019.

Grant Thornton, the global organization of which Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is a member, published its global results on January 9, 2020, announcing global revenues of US$5.72B for the financial year ended September 30, 2019.

In particular, these results were driven by:

  • Investment in 13 strategic markets where Grant Thornton sees the highest potential for growth in the mid-market segment;
  • Asia Pacific which saw outstanding results from many firms, including those above, which drove growth of 10.7% across the region, nearly double the projected regional GDP growth for 2019;
  • Solid growth across all service lines with a particularly strong result from advisory (+8.6%), closely followed by tax (+5.9%) and assurance (+4.7%).

Peter Bodin, CEO Grant Thornton International Ltd, says: “Our robust 2019 global revenues are the result of a deliberate strategy, focused on quality and culture, which delivered sustainable growth for the network. Our firms’ focus on quality and helping clients navigate an increasingly uncertain world has delivered another record result for our network. As clients continue to expand into new territories, transform the way they do business and cope with increasing regulation, we need to evolve and adapt with them. There is also mounting pressure from consumers, investors and regulators to transform business models and build a more sustainable global economy. It’s reassuring to see Grant Thornton firms succeed as we continue to build a sustainable next-generation professional services organization.”

Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton congratulated the global organization’s member firms. He especially highlights the work of the 2,600 professionals at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton whose efforts have largely contributed to these positive results: “Our firm is very proud to contribute to this international success. Our integrated service offering and access to the professionals of Grant Thornton’s worldwide network allow us to support local businesses in their growth, both nationally and internationally.”
