Advantio creates 40 Sligo jobs at new cybersecurity HQ

Cybersecurity provider Advantio is to create 40 new jobs in Sligo over the next three years at its European Cybersecurity HQ.

It will be recruiting for full-time roles across a range of functions including Product Management, Security Consulting, Project Management, Customer Success and HR teams.

“We want to give new graduates in the north-west an opportunity to pursue a career in cybersecurity whilst staying close to their roots, and to attract talented and experienced people back to the region”

The establishment of Advantio’s Cybersecurity HQ is a key step in furthering Advantio’s international growth strategy.

The war against cyberattacks

“Cybersecurity threats are growing at a rapid pace and our Sligo team will be at the heart of our strategy to help businesses succeed in such a challenging environment,” said Marco Borza, founder and CEO of Advantio.

“Ciaran McGloin, a Sligo native and managing director of our advisors, Novacies Capital, was key in helping us spot this opportunity and spinning key operations into Sligo. Ciaran is also a non-executive director of Advantio. We want to give new graduates in the north-west an opportunity to pursue a career in cybersecurity whilst staying close to their roots, and to attract talented and experienced people back to the region.”

With more than 500 enterprise clients and over 30,000 end users on its Zero Risk SaaS Security Solution across Europe, Ireland, and the UK, Advantio’s clients can continue to increase their cyber resilience as they grow their businesses thanks to the decennial experience of their trusted cybersecurity partner in assessing and enhancing businesses cybersecurity while monitoring and responding to cyber-attacks.

“We intend to position Advantio as a leading Employer of Choice for the Northwest Region,” said Cian Collins, Advantio Ireland Country Manager. “We’re hiring across a range of disciplines while also building links with local educational institutes to establish a next level graduate programme called the Advantio Academy. We’ve also helped establish the Cyber Ireland Northwest Chapter and we’re really excited for the next phase of our growth.”

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said that Advantio’s decision to establish its European Cybersecurity HQ in Sligo demonstrates the company’s confidence in the availability of a highly skilled and talented workforce across the North West Region.

“IDA Ireland continues to be committed to winning high-value jobs and investments for regional locations,” said Shanahan.
