The province of New Brunswick represents a unique opportunity for Carbon60’s strategy. The province is emerging as a strong supplier of skilled technical talent and a cybersecurity hub. We see this as a venue to grow our own talent pool and build upon our security practice. Canadian businesses continue to show demand for managed security services in increasingly complex hybrid cloud transformations and cultivating the in-province talent serves to increase economic development in the region, building upon Cirrus9’s success.

We look forward to the contributions of the Cirrus9 team in Carbon60’s vision to become the leading managed cloud provider in Canada.
