ECI Expands into Canada to Meet Growing Demand for Managed IT Services by Financial Firms
Momentum Continues as Mid-Market Financial Companies Look to Industry-leading Portfolio to Simplify IT, Transform and Grow Their Business
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ECI, the leader in managed services and cybersecurity for the global financial services industry, today announced it has expanded into Canada. The move was prompted by demand from mid-market financial firms for its managed services, which comprises the biggest, broadest portfolio designed for the industry. With operations based in Toronto – North America’s second largest financial center and a top fintech ecosystem – ECI will support clients with personnel covering all regions.
ECI’s expansion builds upon strong momentum, a period marked by growth, strategic acquisitions and a rebranding reflecting its greater capabilities. It also coincides with a need among financial firms to simplify their IT and digitally transform their businesses. With ECI, firms gain a single managed services provider (MSP) to handle their complete IT requirements, one proven to improve stability, security, cost efficiency and productivity.
ECI’s portfolio is comprised of three pillars covering a broad range of services, including:
- Managed Services: Cloud solutions, networking and hardware, IT support.
- Cybersecurity: Managed services for security information and event management (SIEM), security operations centers, dark web monitoring, phishing and threat training, vulnerability assessments and remediation, governance and risk management, and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as a service.
- Business Transformation: cloud transformation, application development, DevOps, process automation, managed data services, strategic advisory, distributed workforce enablement.
“We’re very excited about ECI’s expansion in Canada,” said Ryan Gonsalves, CFA, chief operating officer for ADI Capital Partners. “We’ve been a client for about five years, but I was familiar with the brand prior, having heard many positive reviews in conversations I had with CTOs. What drew us in was the scalable nature, that ECI’s services could grow along with our business, and that we’d have true expert support, 24×7. They’ve augmented our IT team, acted as an outsourced CIO, and shifted our CAPEX to a lower variable cost. They’re also the type of company you want on your side when you’re trying to raise capital – high quality partners matter.”
“We’ve had customers in Canada and have helped many firms expand in the country. With heightened global interest in our services for some time, we decided it was time to make our Canadian presence official,” said David Andrade, CEO of ECI. “As companies grow and move upstream, they have greater needs. As they increase their footprint, they require services and support to span geographies. With our familiarity, comprehensive offerings and ability to scale, we are in an ideal position to enable the financial mid-market to execute successful business transformations globally.”
