IT security specialists to create 100 new jobs for Dublin
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, TD, today announced that Mandiant, a specialist provider of IT security solutions is to establish an engineering and security operations centre in Dublin with the creation of 100 new jobs. The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
“Mandiant chose Ireland as the location for this operation to drive our growth in Europe as well as to support the US market. We look forward to joining Ireland’s well established security cluster, the availability of top-tier engineering talent and the benefits of working in such a pro-business environment.”
Dave Merkel, Chief Technology Officer of Mandiant
Mandiant provides security products and services that find and stop advanced attackers who bypass IT security controls and is one of only four companies certified to respond to cyber security attacks in the United Kingdom via the, “Cyber Incident Response,” program that is administered by CESG, the Information Assurance arm of the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).
Demand for Mandiant products and services is growing rapidly and in order to successfully manage technology and services delivery to clients, a footprint in Europe has become necessary to support both European and US clients. The new jobs will be created in the areas of software engineering and security operations. In the product development arena, Mandiant seeks to fill quality engineering and product development roles. The new facility will also serve as Mandiant’s Euro-based security operations center where they are looking to hire information technology and security operations expertise. The firm will also be looking to fill a number of administrative professional positions.
