“The CGI team is passionate about the mission of cybersecurity and proud to be recognized amongst our peers,” said Gary Miller, CGI’s Vice-President of Cybersecurity in Canada. “For more than 20 years, we’ve continued to innovate, evolve and meet the cyber challenges of the Canadian market, delivering the most appropriate and effective cybersecurity solutions. In this dynamic market, our team maintains an intense focus on the challenges of today, while keeping an eye to the future.”

Additional findings in the IDC MarketScape report (Mar 2022 - Doc # CA48060922) about CGI:

  • Over the past few years, CGI has made significant investments into developing its threat intelligence program, orchestration, and automation within its environment to further differentiate its services. 
  • On the managed services side, CGI leads with a vendor-agnostic approach and combines security tools and technologies, management, and security operations expertise to offer unified security solutions for IT, OT, and cloud security.
