FireEye To Establish EMEA Technical Support Centre

FireEye, the leading provider of software protection against web and email next-generation security threats, announced that it will establish its EMEA technical support centre in Cork, with the expectation of creating approximately 150 new jobs.

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

The new EMEA technical support centre will be a strategic centre for FireEye and will have a central role in supporting international growth. The new positions to be created will be for level one, two and three support engineers, with recruitment to commence immediately.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and innovation Richard Bruton said: "ICT is a key sector targeted in the Government’s plan for jobs and growth, and since we took office we have seen growth of over 10,000 jobs in this sector. We are determined to continue improving our supports for this sector, and through the Action Plan for Jobs 2013 we will implement a number of key changes aimed at becoming the top country in Europe for ICT skills. Today's announcement that FireEye, a leading company in security software, is establishing a strategically important operation in Cork with the anticipated creation of approximately 150 jobs is a great boost for the city and a further indication of what is possible in this sector for Ireland. Through continued implementation of our plan I am determined to ensure that we can build on the strong growth we have achieved, and create the jobs we need."
