iON Named to The Globe and Mail’s List of Top Growing Companies of 2021

iON is pleased to announce that we have been named in the 2021 Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top Growing Companies based on our three-year growth rate of 57%.  Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada.

“It’s an honour to be recognized for our growth and named as one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies,” said Robert Zagorsky CEO and founder. “Our team’s ongoing commitment to deliver quality cybersecurity solutions has fostered strong partnerships with customers, vendors and the community. We’re grateful for these partnerships that have been so instrumental to our success and look forward to continuing to improve the cybersecurity posture of every organization we proudly serve.”

Building on 18 years of consecutive organic growth, iON took a major leap forward with the May 2021 acquisition of Vancouver-based Wirefire, who have proven an ideal match in terms of capability, culture, and creativity. As we complete the final stages of a very successful integration process, we fully expect to build on the synergies we have already enjoyed through the merger of both companies’ highly skilled and experienced technical teams.

iON owes our success to our dedicated team, our vendor partners, and most importantly, our valued customers. We greatly appreciate your trust as we work to advance cybersecurity in Canada. The best is certainly yet to come!

The Perimeter and Beyond – Maximizing ROI in your Next-Gen Firewall

Historically, firewalls have served solely as the core component of an organization’s perimeter defense, providing network layer access control, logging, and network address translation (NAT) to segment networks.  Next-gen firewalls (NGFWs), however, can do much more. These devices are very different from the routers you buy for your home and do more than just protect the perimeter. In an effective cybersecurity practice, NGFWs are tightly integrated with other components of your organization’s security stack, providing valuable data outputs that enable greater visibility and…
