Malwarebytes, a US cybersecurity company has today announced that it has chosen Cork as the site for its EMEA Head Quarters, creating 50 new jobs over 3 years.
The announcement was made today by the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton T.D.
Malwarebytes was founded in 2008 by Marcin Kleczynski to tackle advanced online threats which consistently escape detection by traditional anti-virus tools. The proprietary and innovative software protects both consumers and businesses using intelligent heuristics and behaviour-based technologies which are specifically designed to counteract the latest, most advanced, online threats. With global headquarters in Silicon Valley, USA, the fast growing company has already been nominated as one of Forbes Magazine's 'America's Most Promising Companies' this year.
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
Minister Bruton said, "Technology is a key sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and in the past three years we have seen an impressive jobs performance in this area. Today's announcement that Malwarebytes is establishing a new facility in Cork with the creation of 50 jobs is another important boost. I am determined to ensure that with the right policies we can see continued job growth and create an extra 40,000 jobs across the country this year."
