Global cybersecurity leader, Forcepoint, has opened a new Centre of Excellence in Ireland. The investment will focus on new product development in the cloud and endpoint cybersecurity technology space.
This all-new facility will enable Forcepoint to accelerate its ability to deliver human-centric cybersecurity solutions. The investment runs across three years with the majority of the new roles in cloud and endpoint software engineering created during the first year of operations. Further roles are planned over the remainder of the investment period.
“This Centre of Excellence will be pivotal in the development and operation of market-leading endpoint security, cloud services and applications, as we scale to meet the needs of millions of Forcepoint users,” said Heath Thompson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Commercial Security.
“By drawing on Ireland’s strong talent pool, we will add to our skilled teams across the world and accelerate our mission to understand human interactions with data across users, machines and accounts,” he explained.
The roles in Ireland will focus on the greenfield development of new cloud and endpoint cybersecurity products which integrate across the entire Forcepoint Human Point System portfolio.
The portfolio enables customers to ‘start anywhere’ with Forcepoint’s best-in-class cybersecurity products, integrating seamlessly into a system with unified policy management or plugging into existing on-premises or cloud environments.
The Centre of Excellence will join other Forcepoint facilities around the globe, leveraging diverse security talent to drive innovation and develop security capabilities that uniquely adapt to security risks whether they are in the cloud or on the network.
