U.S. Cybersecurity Firm Make Dublin Its European Base With 50 New Jobs


U.S. cybersecurity firm ThreatLocker is to create 50 jobs in Dublin, its new European headquarters. The opening of their European Base will support plans to grow across Europe.

The company expects to recruit 50 new employees to support engineering, sales and R&D. ThreatLocker currently works with over 2000 partners globally, and is already operating in Europe and the United Kingdom.

GDPR fines are rapidly increasing in Ireland. According to a recent report, the number of data breach notifications that organisations made in the past year to regulators reached 121,165, marking a 19% increase from the 101,403 breach notifications issued the previous year.

Malicious software is one of the most frequent ways that companies are breached. “Organisations are rapidly accelerating their digital transformations, while facing an ever-shifting cybersecurity landscape and increasing threats,” said Danny Jenkins, CEO, ThreatLocker.

This combination is driving huge demand for enterprise-level security from organizations that previously did not have the resources or means to procure them. We are excited to plant our stake in the ground and help more organizations across Europe to gain the breadth of security needed to operate in the digital economy.”

The Irish headquarters will be led by Rob Allen, Vice President of Operations (EMEA) for ThreatLocker. Mr. Allen brings more than two decades of experience working with Ireland’s community of MSPs to remediate the effects of ransomware, viruses and malicious software running on endpoints and servers.
