Motorola Solutions opened a new network and security operations center (NSOC) in Gatineau, where it will manage, support and protect mission-critical communication networks and command center software for Canada’s first responders.

The opening reflects Motorola Solutions’ continued investment in managed services and commitment to help protect Canadian federal, provincial and municipal public-safety agencies against cybersecurity threats, the company said.

“We are dedicated to making communities safer and our new NSOC will ensure the integrity of the mission-critical communications technologies trusted by public-safety agencies across Canada,” said George Krausz, president of Motorola Solutions Canada. “The center will monitor the systems that are relied upon by first responders to help them protect our communities, enterprises and governments. It will be staffed by a team of highly trained engineers who are experts in mission-critical operations and cybersecurity.”

Motorola Solutions’ cybersecurity services provided at the NSOC include 24/7/365 proactive threat detection, vulnerability scanning and assessments, security patching, end-point protection and dark web intelligence services. These services adhere to the “Canadian Overview of IT Security Risk Management: A Lifestyle Approach” (ITSG33) cybersecurity framework, and the NSOC is a data sovereign environment where sensitive data access is role-based and will be viewed by federally screened personnel.

“We’re proud to be opening our ninth operations center across the world, dedicated to our Canadian customers,” said Mark McNulty, senior vice president of global services, Motorola Solutions. “We combine state-of-the-art technologies with the industry’s best people and most rigorous practices to ensure the mission-critical operations of the nation’s public-safety agencies.”

Specialized employees will assure the availability, performance and security of essential public-safety technologies, including LMR and LTE networks, command center software, and video security and access control.

In-Sec-M, a non-profit organization that supports the innovation and growth of the cybersecurity industry, is working with Motorola Solutions to announce the opening of its new NSOC in Canada’s cybersecurity cluster.

“As a catalyst for increasing the cohesion and competitiveness of the Canadian cybersecurity industry, we are honored to welcome Motorola Solutions to the Gatineau Connexité cybersecurity cluster,” said In-Sec-M CEO Antoine Normand. “Their networks and technologies are relied upon by first responders, including police, fire and emergency medical services, across the country, and the security of these systems is paramount. They are an integral member of In-Sec-M, who will help promote the innovation and the growth of Canada’s cybersecurity industry.”
