Canada's Telus has announced that it is buying an IT company Enode for an undisclosed amount.
Enode provides information security and risk management for business and government agencies, and will be integrated into the Telus Security Solutions division once the transaction is completed.
The two companies have worked together on projects in Quebec for the past few years.
"The number of organizations victimized by security breaches continues to rise every year," said Yogen Appalraju, vice-president, Telus Security Solutions. "By expanding our capacity with the acquisition of Enode, we are strengthening our ability to protect our customers against web-based threats for many years to come."
Telus has been expanding its operations in Internet data security, opening two data centres in Quebec and British Columbia in 2012.
