IT Firm Creates 100 New Jobs

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, TD, today announced that Mandiant, a specialist provider of IT security solutions is to establish an engineering and security operations centre in Dublin with the creation of 100 new jobs.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Mandiant provides security products and services that find and stop advanced attackers who bypass IT security controls and is one of only four companies certified to respond to cyber security attacks in the United Kingdom via the, 'Cyber Incident Response', program that is administered by CESG, the Information Assurance arm of the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).

Demand for Mandiant products and services is growing rapidly and in order to successfully manage technology and services delivery to clients, a footprint in Europe has become necessary to support both European and US clients. New jobs created will be in the areas of software engineering and security operations. In the product development arena, Mandiant seeks to fill quality engineering and product development roles. The new facility will also serve as Mandiant's Euro-based security operations centre where they are looking to hire information technology and security operations expertise. The firm will also be looking to fill a number of administrative professional positions.

Making the announcement, Minister Bruton said: "ICT is a key sector targeted for growth under the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs. In the past 18 months we have implemented a range of new measures to support this sector and seen thousands of extra jobs created in start-ups and world-leading multinationals. Today’s announcement that Mandiant, a specialist company in the fast-growing IT security sector, is establishing operations in Ireland with the creation of 100 high-end jobs is great news. We in Government will continue to build on Ireland’s success in this area to create the jobs we need."
