TAMPA — ReliaQuest, a Tampa-based cybersecurity company, has opened its first international office, in Dublin, Ireland.
According to a press release, fast-growing ReliaQuest plans to hire 700 people over the next three years, 100 of which will be based in Dublin. The positions will be part of the company’s security operations center, which employs security engineers, analysts and content developers.
“We chose Dublin for several reasons, including its strong talent, the ease of travel back and forth from our headquarters in the U.S. and around the rest of Europe, and the openness and focus on collaboration fostered by Ireland,” ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy states in the release. “ReliaQuest will double in size in all of our locations across the U.S. and in Dublin in 2019 and continue that trend for the foreseeable future. We have a history of focused and rapid growth, and Ireland is a big part of that growth.”
According to the Deloitte 2018 Technology Fast 500 list, where the company ranks 214th, ReliaQuest’s revenue rose by 451% over the past year. It also has an office in Las Vegas.
Heather Humphreys, Ireland’s minister of business, enterprise and innovation, welcomed the arrival of ReliaQuest.
“I am delighted to see ReliaQuest open their first European office in Dublin,” she states in the release. “This will result in the creation of over 100 highly skilled jobs and they will join a growing cluster of cybersecurity firms already based here. This is an exciting announcement in an increasingly important sector and I wish them every success.”
