Tenable Network Security has opened a new international headquarters at Dublin’s docklands. The company said it plans to create some 100 jobs over the next two years.
The move is supported by the government through the IDA.
Attending the opening, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor said: “I warmly welcome the establishment of your international headquarters here in Dublin and the announcement that this will create an additional 100 jobs over the next two years. The ICT Sector has made extraordinary advances in recent years, but these advances bring their own security challenges. That’s where companies like Tenable come in. These jobs are an additional boost to the 6,000 already working in cybersecurity here.”
“Tenable is a fast-paced, innovative security company, so it’s only natural we chose Dublin, a city known around the world for its tech talent, as the home of our first international headquarters,” said Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO, Tenable. “I’m grateful to the Minister and IDA for this warm welcome, and I’m excited for Tenable to be part of this great community.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said: “Tenable’s decision to establish its new international headquarters in Dublin significantly bolsters Ireland’s reputation as a cybersecurity hub within Europe. Ireland, as a committed member of the European Union, provides companies with access to a highly skilled and mobile IT talent pool.”
The opening comes on the heels of record results for the company, which added a number of new enterprise customers and increased its EMEA headcount by 76% in 2016.
Tenable customers range from Fortune Global 500 companies, to the global public sector, to mid-sized enterprises in all sectors, including finance, government, healthcare, higher education, retail and energy.
