Global cybersecurity leader to create 100 new jobs in local Dublin economy with the grand opening of its new office in the Dublin Docklands

DUBLIN (April 26, 2017) —  Tenable Network Security®, Inc., a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced, in partnership with Ireland’s Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland, the opening of its new international headquarters in the heart of the Dublin Docklands, and its plans to create 100 jobs over the next two years.

Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO of Tenable, with the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, marked the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the company’s commitment and investment in the local Dublin economy.

Speaking at today's announcement, Minister Mitchell O'Connor said, "I warmly welcome the establishment of your international headquarters here in Dublin and the announcement that this will create an additional 100 jobs over the next two years. The ICT Sector has made extraordinary advances in recent years, but these advances bring their own security challenges. That's where companies like Tenable come in. These jobs are an additional boost to the 6,000 already working in cybersecurity here. I wish you and your team the very best and I look forward to watching your company thrive and grow in the coming years."

“Tenable is a fast-paced, innovative security company, so it’s only natural we chose Dublin, a city known around the world for its tech talent, as the home of our first international headquarters,” said Amit Yoran, chairman and CEO, Tenable. “I’m grateful to the Minister and IDA for this warm welcome, and I’m excited for Tenable to be part of this great community.”
