Tech companies create 60 jobs in Cork, Portlaoise
Two IDA-backed technologies have announced the creation of 60 new jobs in Cork and Portlaoise.
AlienVault, a provider of unified security management solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, is to establish an EMEA sales and technical support centre in Cork, with plans to create up to 40 highly skilled roles in the coming year.
Alien Vault has recently hired its first 12 staff in Cork consisting of sales, sales engineers, tech support and management personnel.
In a separate announcement, lead generation services company Internal Results Ireland is to expand its customer support centre as part of its Portlaoise operation, creating an additional 20 fulltime jobs over three years.
Internal Results Ireland is a subsidiary of Internal Results Holdings, based in the UK. The company provides lead generation services for technology and telecommunications companies including Cisco, McAfee, Cognizant, Verint, CNET and 02.
The Irish subsidiary was set up in 2011 at the same time as the company was established in the UK. Fourteen people are currently employed full time in Internal Results Ireland and 15 part time.
The company moved late last year to new high spec offices in the technology building on the IDA Business & Technology Park in Portlaoise.
