Expansion will bring Irish cybersecurity player TitanHQ’s headcount beyond 200 people.
Galway-headquartered cybersecurity vendor TitanHQ is bringing 67 new jobs to the west of Ireland over the next two years.
TitanHQ is the largest indigenous cybersecurity employer in Ireland. Currently it employs 135 staff in Salthill, Galway, with a further eight based in Letterkenny, Co Donegal.
“The investment in our team is what allows us to continue providing industry leading multi-layered cybersecurity solutions”
The expansion coincides with a visit by Minister for Enterprise Simon Coveney, TD, to Galway where he got a first-hand look at TitanHQ’s innovative operations and the role they play in driving economic growth in the region.
Tech in the regions
As a global cybersecurity company founded in Galway in 1999, TitanHQ has consistently demonstrated its dedication to technological advancement, innovation, and job creation in the region.
“TitanHQ is an Irish company that has grown and developed to compete on a global scale and the announcement today of over 60 new jobs based here in Galway shows that Ireland is to the forefront of development and innovation in the cyber security space,” Minister Coveney said.
“The Government through Enterprise Ireland looks forward to continued engagement with TitanHQ to support their business development.”
As part of the current expansion, Enterprise Ireland is supporting the recruitment of some of the new positions in the company and is working with the company on a joint R&D project to integrate a number of software solutions to enhance the company’s product offering.
Leo Clancy, CEO, Enterprise Ireland said, “Enterprise Ireland has been working with TitanHQ since 2004 and seen first-hand how this innovative company has gone from strength-to-strength, growing a strong customer base internationally and recruiting people at home. Supporting Irish companies with the ambition to scale globally is a key priority for Enterprise Ireland and we look forward to working closely with TitanHQ to optimise their full international growth potential, creating and sustaining jobs here in the West of Ireland.”
Minister Simon Coveney’s visit also coincides with October’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month. As the world increasingly relies on digital technologies, TitanHQ’s innovative solutions are crucial shields to protect businesses against cyber threats.
Commenting on the visit, Ronan Kavanagh, CEO, TitanHQ, said “We are delighted to welcome Minister Coveney to our headquarters today. This comes at a fantastic time as October is International Cyber Awareness Month. The investment in our team is what allows us to continue providing industry leading multi-layered cybersecurity solutions.”
