March Networks, a global provider of intelligent video solutions, announced it was one of the first companies in Canada to become Cyber Essentials Canada certified, designating it as a cybersecure business.

Developed as part of the U.K.’s National Cyber Security Programme, the Cyber Essentials certification is awarded to organizations able to demonstrate good cyber security practices and an ability to mitigate risks from Internet based threats in areas including: firewalls, routers and other boundary security devices; Internet connected email, Web and application servers; desktop PCs and laptops; and cloud, Internet and other service providers.

In addition to helping organizations identify the required controls believed to shield companies from most common Internet threats, the Cyber Essentials Canada toolset is an asset for end user organizations eager to monitor and protect their supply chain.
