TAMPA — A-LIGN, a Tampa-based cybersecurity and privacy compliance firm, has opened its first international office, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
In a press release, A-LIGN — which helps companies deal with regulatory, business-driven security and compliance — says the expansion comes amid strong growth. From 2016 to 2018, revenue increased by 135%, to $39.6 million last year. In June, the company opened an office in Denver.
"As A-LIGN's rapid growth continues, we saw the need to expand internationally to be able to meet the needs for our services," A-LIGN CEO Scott Price states in the release. "Companies continue to demand cybersecurity services, such as penetration testing and vulnerability assessments, to take place outside of business hours. An international expansion allows our U.S. employees to avoid working overnight to maintain a work-life balance and have a greater focus on analysis and remediation services for our clients."
In 2019, the release states, A-LIGN has added 100 employees and more than 800 clients.
"Bulgaria made the most sense for our next expansion," Price states. "Its business climate and pipeline of talented employees, as well as our leadership team's ties to Bulgaria, made it the perfect location for our first international office."
