Building a portfolio of security services and solutions in Canada

Over the years we have grown by expanding our client base and through selective acquisitions.

One of our Canadian acquisitions was Phirelight Security Solutions Inc. (founded in 2001 and acquired by RHEA in 2018). Phirelight’s specialty in cybersecurity, including the development and implementation of security solutions and services to protect and monitor client environments to reduce data breach detection time and provide incident response, is strategic to RHEA’s controlled growth and expansion in Canada and abroad.

As part of its security monitoring operations, the Phirelight operations focus on providing personalized, proactive cyber threat hunting and dedicated security monitoring services. These are now fully incorporated into RHEA’s Managed SOC services.
