ORION Cybersecurity products and services

ORION’s cybersecurity commitment

Our long history of providing advanced network solutions has given us the expertise we need to fulfill the digital requirements of Ontario’s innovation community. That commitment extends to ORION’s work in cybersecurity. Keeping our digital community safe is vital to supporting Ontario’s research and education community.

Our community approached us to help support their cybersecurity needs and we have expanded our services to improve our community’s cybersecurity posture. ​

Together, with Ontario’s research, education and innovation community we can work together to navigate today’s complex technological landscape.​
