No offense. But you seem to be asking the government agencies (and 
media) for more surgical (aka edited) reports as well as more detail and 
context.
Are these requirements not mutually exclusive?

And, to be fair, it is news if the CRA aka Revenue Canada and other 
government agencies shuts down their portals.

Local internet traffic equipment providers: Sandvine, Exinda.
Local security equipment and software tools: Blue Coat

One of the above, Sandvine, is home grown here in KW. The others are 
divisions of a foreign parent company.

There could be others.
