Above Security, now Hitachi Systems Security, is a Montreal-based provider of customized services for monitoring and protecting IT assets, catering to small and medium businesses in highly-regulated industries such as financial services and government. With accounts in over 40 countries worldwide the company was founded in 1999 and has representative offices in North America, Europe, and the Middle East as well as security operations in Montreal and Sierre, Switzerland.
In 2014, Above Security had been looking for flexible capital that would allow them to expand their presence across North America and the EU. Flow Capital’s original investment of CAD $1,000,000 and various subsequent rounds allowed them to successfully execute on their growth plan and complete an acquisition.
Flow Capital’s investment allowed the executive team to maintain control of their cap table and was ultimately pivotal in the successful exit of the business to Hitachi in 2015.
