Salthill-headquartered Irish software firm TitanHQ has welcomed an influx of new business as global firms seek stronger email security.

Cloud-based email and web protection company TitanHQ has seen recruitment surge almost 45pc since September 2020.

The expansion comes as TitanHQ has welcomed an influx of new business as more managed service providers and SMBs seek better and more powerful email and web security solutions.

“We have invested heavily and embarked on a recruitment campaign to double our workforce in a programme that will allow that growth to continue”

Headquartered in Salthill, Galway, and with offices in Tampa, Florida, TitanHQ are a 25-year young multi-award-winning cloud security vendor.

Areas of expertise include advanced web filtering, email security, and email archiving.

Giant ambition

The TitanHQ team is 93 people strong now, with hires in multiple functions across sales, marketing, customer success, renewals, finance, software engineers, and DevOps.

At the executive level, TitanHQ added marquee signings with Sean Morris joining as CTO from Fidelity Investments and Brian O’Driscoll coming on board as CFO from Qualtrics.

“As a result of increased demand globally for our solutions, we have invested heavily and embarked on a recruitment campaign to double our workforce in a programme that will allow that growth to continue,” said Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of TitanHQ.

“We have also invested because while we believe remote working is a by-product of the current pandemic, it is very much going to be the mode of future work. The quick move to remote working last year has made us all aware of how important it is to be adaptable and have the right security solutions in place to protect users, customers, company data, and systems.”

Despite the pandemic, new starters have been warmly welcomed to the company through engaging meetings, virtual ‘fireside’ Q&A sessions, and even a special home delivery or two.

The company is trusted by over 12,000 businesses including 2,500 MSPs across 150 countries, protecting companies including T-Mobile, Virgin, O2, ViaSat, Pepsi, and Datto. 

In addition to its organic year-on-year growth, recent significant investment from Livingbridge investor group has turbocharged the company’s growth.

This has allowed TitanHQ to accelerate ambitious growth plans through increased investment in product development and in people. 

Kavanagh said that TitanHQ is set to continue multiplying its workforce. The new roles will span from software development, technical support, sales, and marketing to allow a larger team to reach even more clients internationally. To learn about available positions go here.
