Local cyber security firm EWA-Canada has been purchased by Chicago-based Intertek, the companies said this week.
EWA – which stands for “Electronic Warfare Associates” – was founded in 1988 and has approximately 54 employees, according to the firm.
“Joining Intertek is a great development for EWA-Canada that we are very excited about,” EWA-Canada president Dennis Weiss said in a statement. “We look forward to working together to bring our services to new industries and geographies, offering more robust services to the IoT space.”
The Mierins family established their foundation in 2018 and felt it was their obligation to support the new state-of-the-art hospital.
The local firm was a founding member of the Kanata-based Centre of Excellence for Next Generation Networks.
EWA-Canada specializes in IT network security solutions for network carriers, network and product security evaluations, certification testing and advisory services.
