Ward Solutions is creating 22 new jobs at its offices in Citywest, Dublin and Belfast. The jobs are being created as part of a new €1.8 million investment to upgrade its managed security, digital forensics, e-discovery and security analytics service offerings and are expected to be filled over the next two years.
The new roles will include information security engineers, developers, information security consultants, customer services and sales positions.
Ward Solutions has experienced an average year-on-year growth rate of 20% over the past two years and predicts that this growth will accelerate to 30% per annum for the next two years with revenues in excess of €10 million forecast for 2016.
Ward’s customer base includes CIE, Vodafone, National College of Ireland, Bord Gais, Fleetmatics and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation.
Pat Larkin, CEO, Ward Solutions, said: “There has been a huge rise in demand for our services as the security threat landscape has continued to evolve and become increasingly difficult for businesses to manage. Customers like the fact that they deal with a provider who can deliver on all of their information security requirements.
“We continuously invest a lot of time and budget in R&D, developing new solutions to increase our customers’ security and compliance, and reduce the complexities caused by information security management and incidents. We’re really looking forward to bringing in new talent to our Dublin and Belfast offices to add to our existing highly experienced team. By the end of this investment, we will have the largest information security resource on the island, with the widest range of capabilities.”
