The R&D centre will focus on developing Samsung's enterprise security solutions, while also providing global technical support for the company's diverse B2B customers, according to the company.

"With a skilled Canadian talent base to draw from, the team will help Samsung continue to lead the industry—both at home and abroad—by driving product innovation."

The Canadian facility employs approximately 60 skilled software engineers, designers, and operations staff.

"A highly-educated talent pool, competitive tax policies, a business-friendly climate and AAA credit rating speak for themselves."

Samsung last year spent $11 billion on the development of future technologies.
