Lumension to leverage Ireland's strong technology talent pool, flexible business culture and long history of technology innovation to enhance research, development and innovation
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2009 -- Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint management and security, today announced the expansion of its global operations with the opening of a new office in Galway, Ireland. The establishment of the new office will serve as an expansion hub for Lumension's product research and development functions. The new office will enable Lumension to further execute on its strategy to broaden its global footprint, strengthen its capabilities, and drive innovation in technology research and development while increasing operational efficiencies.
"Over the years, Ireland has proven itself to be a vibrant economy that boasts technological innovation at many levels," said Pat Clawson, Chairman and CEO of Lumension. "The new office in Ireland offers important assets that will help Lumension accelerate its growth, including a talented workforce, modern infrastructure, ready to deploy business facilities, and lower cost of doing business."
"Ireland provides a rich pool of talent in research and development. Despite the challenging economic landscape, Lumension is committed to continued efforts in recruiting and extend the advancement of research and development across all four key areas of the company's solution suite, including Vulnerability Management, Data and Endpoint Protection, and Compliance and IT Risk Management," Clawson continued.
Lumension firmly believes the new region will help drive operational excellence based on Ireland's attractive tax incentives, further allowing the company to streamline costs across the entire organization while focusing on technology innovation. According to the U.S. Department of State, Ireland is attractive to many U.S. businesses based on numerous factors, the high quality and flexibility of the English-speaking work force; strong intellectual property protection; cooperative labor relations; political stability; pro-business government policies; a transparent judicial system; and an existing cluster of international corporations operating successfully.
Lumension initially plans to hire over 30 new employees in the region to build out development and technology research areas with plans to grow its operations in the coming years. The Industrial Development Agency of Ireland http://www.idaireland.com/will launch an event to celebrate the opening of Lumension's new business operations in Ireland on August 12, 2009.
