Cyber Architecture and Engineering

At DarkMatter, we begin with two critical advantages: we are vendor neutral, and we believe in security by design. We are not aligned with any particular vendor, although we have partnerships and certifications with the biggest names. This gives us the flexibility to work with your existing infrastructure and to select the technology solution that is right for your specific needs.  

As a cyber security firm, we understand the value of security by design, and that means we see security as not an add-on, but something of equal priority during the design, implementation and commissioning of a project, alongside the solution’s availability, reliability, scalability and efficiency.

Fundamentally focused on deployment, we see partnership and transparency as essential throughout delivery and handover. As well, we understand that even the best-designed solution means nothing without on-time execution and delivery that meets the quality, security and performance design goals. Our approach is to assure this every time.


Advisory and Architecture Services



We help you navigate the rising complexity surrounding cyber security and IT infrastructure by offering strategic advice that aligns your IT, OT and security roadmaps with your business needs. We work with you to develop a target-state IT and security vision for your business, applications, technology and infrastructure, as well as a roadmap to get you there.

Specific priority advisory areas include Mobility and End-User Computing consulting that assesses the application requirements within your business and develops a delivery strategy and architecture. The focus is on security and control requirements -- from the data centre to the network, then out to endpoints such as PCs, VDI, laptops, handheld devices etc -- that solve your complex security challenges and protect your users and the confidential data they possess, access and maintain.

Our Secure Cloud offering includes a range of services to assist your organization in developing a cloud strategy, securely establish private and/or public cloud infrastructure, perform low-risk migration of approved workloads, and institute cloud management tools.


Infrastructure and System Integration Services



Our Infrastructure and System Integration Engineering Services help you design and deploy solutions that deliver effective cyber security through transformative IT projects, operational improvements and business-critical IT implementations.

Our extensive capabilities extend broadly across all types of cyber security projects, including secure landline, secure mobile, secure news, secure email, secure email encryption, secure chat, secure storage, secure content vetting, secure calendar, secure site implementations and secure emergency.

We are equally experienced in all types of IT modernization deployments, including private and hybrid cloud deployments, data centre and server room migrations, infrastructure refreshes and IT standardization, model-office implementations, staff augmentation, new infrastructure implementations, service transitions to DarkMatter Managed Security Services, storage, network, backup implementations and refreshes, and infrastructure consolidations.


Packaged Services



DarkMatter’s proprietary packaged services provide tiered solutions and methodologies to automate deployment via a single fully interactive toolset. These services help you execute all of the most common migrations, such as Windows 10 desktop, Server 2016, and Exchange 2016. These services incorporate assessment, impact and benefit analysis, project planning, and both pilot and production deployment.

Additional DarkMatter packaged services offer you a deep-dive assessment into your IT infrastructure and network, and your data centres to identify gaps and issues, and provide recommendations based on best practices and IT industry standards. We also can analyze your virtual infrastructure for comprehensive capacity planning, ROI optimization, virtualization and server consolidation activities.

Our Critical Facilities Infrastructure Assessment service looks at your data centre facilities to identify gaps and issues, and provide recommendations based on best practices and IT industry standards.


Smart Solutions


Our Smart Solutions teams help you address critical physical and network security, ranging from physical security, access and automation to networking and product sourcing, all in a manner designed to protect your organization from some of the most common vectors of cyber attack.

We implement access control solutions, including closed circuit TV networking, intrusion detection, physical security information systems and secure compartments (SCIFs). Our networking capabilities address wired and wireless networks, fibre-optic infrastructure and AV solutions. With deep expertise in even the most advanced procurement, we can help source all types of security products, including those used in law enforcement. We can conduct market research on products and solutions, and design proof-of-concept testing.
