Specialists in security services

Over the years RHEA has grown by expanding its client base and through selective acquisitions.

One of our Canadian acquisitions was Phirelight Security Solutions Inc. (founded in 2001 and acquired by RHEA in 2018). Phirelight’s specialty in cybersecurity, including the development and implementation of security solutions and services to protect and monitor client environments to reduce data breach detection time and provide incident response, is strategic to RHEA’s controlled growth and expansion in Canada and abroad.

As part of its security monitoring operations, the Phirelight operations focus on providing personalized, proactive cyber threat hunting and dedicated security monitoring services. These are now fully incorporated into RHEA’s Managed SOC services.

In 2019, RHEA finalized the acquisition of TSI Security Inc., a leader in security consulting that was founded in 2008 and grew into one of the largest security consulting practices in Canada. TSI Security was fully integrated into RHEA Inc. in January 2021.

The team of experts who joined RHEA from TSI have a wealth of experience. They carefully craft security solutions, tailored to the needs of each client, to drive system optimization and to increase organizational performance. Specializing in the institutional market, their proven methodology is designed to support each client from inception to implementation.

Our team understands legislation, standards, regulations and best practices, and work tirelessly to ensure that clients can implement solutions effectively.

In July 2021, RHEA acquired Security Through Safe Design, a Canadian security consultancy specializing in architectural security design. The acquisition expanded and reinforced RHEA’s physical security offering, and strengthened the breadth of our security capabilities.

Security Through Safe Design had a wealth of expertise in transportation security, large infrastructure projects and public–private partnerships, and had earned prestigious awards and accolades for its contributions to the security industry. The experts who joined RHEA from Security Through Safe Design have assisted industry and government organizations throughout North America with the creation of safe environments for over 20 years.

Security Through Safe Design was fully integrated into RHEA Inc. in January 2023.
