We are looking for talented, driven people to help us realise the vision for the company.” 

The firm has seen massive growth in demand for its services since the outbreak of Covid-19, particularly in its key growth target markets which include food, pharma, retail and financial services sectors who process or store mission-critical data. Unlike its well-known competitors, Stryve guarantees data sovereignty from its private data centre in Cork.

“This gives invaluable reassurance to Stryve clients,” Andrew continued.Most big-name competitors use public cloud. Stryve’s fully private secure cloud solution is completely protected by its own security operations centre.

“Public cloud servers are available to members of the public to access and therefore cannot ever be as secure as private cloud. Owning our own private cloud means Stryve can guarantee data sovereignty.”

It currently supports businesses in over 20 countries with a combined turnover in excess of €21billion, and the company’s ambitious plans include setting up a central European sales office and expanding its services across the continent.
