US COMPANY MANDIANT is to set up an engineering and security operations centre in Dublin, leading to the creation of 100 jobs.

Announcing the development today, Minister Richard Bruton said the move by the IT security specialist is “great news”.

The positions will be in the areas of software engineering and security operations, as well as quality engineering, product development and administration.

The new facility will also serve as Mandiant’s euro-based security operations centre, where they are looking to hire information technology and security operations expertise.

The company provides security products and services that find and stop advanced attackers who bypass IT security controls and is one of only four companies certified to respond to cyber security attacks in the United Kingdom.

Chief technology officer Dave Merkel said Mandiant chose Ireland “to drive our growth in Europe as well as to support the US market”.

“We look forward to joining Ireland’s well established security cluster, the availability of top-tier engineering talent and the benefits of working in such a pro-business environment.”
