Calgary-based cybersecurity firm iON boosts reach with acquisition of Wirefire
Calgary-based iON United has forged ahead in accelerating the evolution of Canada’s cybersecurity industry with the acquisition of Vancouver, B.C.-based Wirefire Solutions.
Robert Zagorsky, president and founder of iON, says the merger sets a new milestone for cybersecurity in Canada to further protect organizations that have embraced virtual service during the global pandemic.
Founded in 2003, it has enjoyed 18 consecutive years of organic growth, becoming one of Canada’s most reputable cybersecurity firms.
Born in Calgary but brought up on the family farm at Tilley, southeast of Brooks, after completing university in Lethbridge, Zagorsky joined a Calgary IT firm in the telecom sector and became fascinated by the new demand for the protection of computer systems and networks that was in its infancy.
He made the bold decision to start his own company to focus on cybersecurity, hired a couple of technical talents, and launched iON.
