A Toronto-based cybersecurity firm today announced it has been selected to provide the Canadian federal government with security solutions and systems integration services.
KeyData Associates will play a big role in the government’s cybersecurity strategy during the contract’s five-year term, the firm indicated in a press release. It will help Shared Services Canada (SCC) address the Privileged Access Management (PAM) requirements of the country’s cybersecurity strategy. Key components of this initiative include the CyberArk Privileged Access Security Solution for PAM the SailPoint IdentityIQ solution for identity governance. KeyData will help in the design and implementation of the two solutions.
“With 14 years’ of recognized leadership and service excellence in providing specialized consulting and integration services for IAM and PAM to many of the largest companies in Canada and in the United States, KeyData is uniquely positioned to address the Government of Canada’s privileged and identity access management requirements,” said Rosa Caputo, chief executive officer of KeyData.
Scott Whitehouse, vice-president of channels and alliances at CyberArk said Canada is taking “commendable action” to protect its citizens and their data.
