Sixty of these new positions will be based in their Irish headquarters in Carlow, while the remaining 25 will be in their offices in the US and UK.

The new positions will see the company’s total workforce rise to 250 people.


CEO David Walsh said: “Following this boost in funding, Netwatch will now focus on investing in strategic areas of their business where they see huge potential.
