150 new jobs for Cork as FireEye establish its EMEA Technical Support Centre
A further jobs boost for Cork and the ICT sector in Ireland
FireEye, the leading provider of software protection against web and email next-generation security threats, announced that it will establish its EMEA technical support centre in Cork, with the expectation of creating approximately 150 new jobs. The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
“FireEye is very happy to be locating its EMEA customer support organization in Cork. Putting FireEye’s EMEA technical support centre in Ireland was an obvious choice due to the country’s successful track record in technology, an existing cluster of high-tech companies, and the availability of competent, multilingual talent.
Tony Kolish, Senior Vice President of Customer Support at FireEye
The new EMEA technical support centre will be a strategic centre for FireEye and will have a central role in supporting international growth.
Its products are involved in planning for ‘Advanced Persistent Threats’ to detect on-going hacking.
The 150 positions will be filled by support engineers with varying levels of experience, with recruitment to commence immediately.
‘’Ireland is becoming a leading location for companies dedicated to fighting cybercrime and other “next generation” threats. Fireye’s new technical support centre in Cork will complement the existing base of ICT and security software companies in Ireland. The software developed by FireEye helps companies defend sudden attacks on their IT systems. The software is also involved in planning for “Advanced Persistent Threats” which involves the detection of on-going hacking.”
