Aided by $60M investment, data security firm plans hiring spree

Clearwater-based FairWarning says it will add 50 employees in 2019.

CLEARWATER — Nearly one year after it closed one of the largest private equity investments in the Tampa Bay area, a $60 million capital injection from Mainsail Partners, data security company FairWarning is poised to add 50 or more employees in 2019.

According to a press release, hiring sprees are nothing new for fast-growing FairWarning, which added more than 40 workers in 2018. It also introduced several new products and service offerings last year that aim to protect business data stored in cloud and other applications for health care, financial services and other highly regulated industries.

“We’re looking forward to bringing on distinguished talent who can share our enthusiasm and expand our reach,” CEO Patrick Marschall states in the release. “We believe security and compliance remain top priorities for today’s businesses, but they can make a complex digital environment even more so. That’s why we made it our goal to provide privacy, compliance and security software that businesspeople in highly regulated industries find easy to use. We get a lot of satisfaction from providing innovative solutions that organizations need, and that translates into a great work environment.”
