Mr. Michael Finneran TD, Minister for Housing and Local Services, today (Wednesday 12 August 2009) announced the opening of a new R&D Centre in Galway for Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint management and security. The new office will serve as a hub for Lumension’s product research and development, initially creating 30 jobs in the region for highly skilled individuals to help build out its powerful suite of endpoint security solutions. Lumension’s expansion into Ireland has been supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.
Commenting on the announcement, Minister Finneran said: “On behalf of the Irish Government I am delighted to welcome Lumension to Ireland with the establishment of 30 jobs in Co. Galway. The decision by a company of the calibre of Lumension to choose Ireland as the location for this significant investment in information technology adds further impetus to Ireland’s reputation as a leading location for software development operations.”
Colleen Shannon, CFO and SVP of Finance and Administration for Lumension, stated: “Over the years, Ireland has proven itself to be a vibrant economy that boasts technological innovation at many levels. The Irish Government and IDA’s innovative approach to attracting a highly skilled pool of talent in the technology area combined with modern infrastructure and flexible business environment are the reasons why we selected Galway for our new global R&D centre. We are committed to continuing our efforts in recruiting and advancing the research and development for our industry leading solutions that help organisations protect their vital information and manage critical risk across their IT network and endpoints.”
Lumension firmly believes that the new region will help drive operational excellence based on Ireland’s attractive tax incentives, further allowing the company to streamline costs across the entire organisation while focusing on technology innovation. According to the U.S. Department of State, Ireland is proving to be an attractive location to many U.S. businesses based on numerous factors, including the quality and flexibility of the English-speaking workforce, cooperative labour relations, political stability, pro-business government policies, strong intellectual property protection, and an existing cluster of international corporations operating successfully.
Lumension has maintained a strong presence in Europe since 1991 and supports additional EMEA offices in Luxembourg, the United Kingdom and Spain. Worldwide headquarters for Lumension is located in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Lumension is currently seeking talented, team-oriented individuals who want to be part of an established, fast-growing global company in a dynamic market space. To learn more about the new positions available at the Ireland office, please visit www.lumension.com/careers.
