“This is super news for Leopardstown and the wider Sandyford Business District and is merely the latest in a long line of good news stories for jobs in our area.
“This area is quickly becoming a top location for the cyber security sector; attracting key talent and further boosting the local economy.
“Other examples of successful companies employing people in the area include Integrity 360, Threatscape Group Limited and BSI Cybersecurity and Information Resilience.”
Local Minister Josepha Madigan also welcomed the news.
She said: “It is always heartening to see international companies expand their operations in Ireland, providing jobs and contributing to the economic and social well-being of the locality here in Leopardstown.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
