The Florida-headquartered cybersecurity company is opening its new European HQ in Ireland. It expects to hire approximately 50 new employees at this base in the areas of sales, engineering and R&D.
The new staff in Ireland will work remotely at the beginning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the company plans to establish an office in the east of the country once the restrictions ease.
The company works with over 2,000 clients globally on enterprise-level security products. It said the new office will support growth in Europe, helping to deliver its zero-trust, date storage and ringfencing tools to businesses through managed service providers in the EMEA region.
Danny Jenkins, CEO of ThreatLocker says, “Organisations are rapidly accelerating their digital transformations, while facing an ever-shifting cybersecurity landscape and increasing threats.”
“This combination is driving huge demand for enterprise-level security from organisations that previously did not have the resources or means to procure them. We are excited to plant our stake in the ground and help more organisations across Europe to gain the breadth of security needed to operate in the digital economy.”
Rob Allen, who has over two decades of experience working with MSPs in Ireland in areas such as viruses, malicious software and ransomware will lead the new office. As vice-president of operations for EMEA at ThreatLocker, he will now lead hiring, regional growth and development.
Rob Allen says, “I’m thrilled to join this fast-growing team and help MSPs across Europe and the UK to improve the cybersecurity posture of their customers and to mitigate growing risks.”
ThreatLocker focuses on the security of endpoints and servers. The company was founded in 2015 and last year, they raised $4.4m in dept and equity for its expansion.
