Kaspersky Lab is opening a new R&D office in Ireland.
With an initial investment of close to $5m, Kaspersky plans to create 50 new Dublin-based roles in the next three years. The new office will focus mainly on developing data analysis and machine learning technologies for the firm’s enterprise product line-up.
The Russian security software firm selected Dublin because of the city’s “growing reputation as a major European tech hub, providing access to a highly skilled IT talent pool and a strong network of innovative technology companies”.
Many security firms already have facilities on the Emerald Isle. These include Symantec, Intel Security, Trend Micro, Webroot, Malwarebytes, Fireeye, Barracuda, IBM, eSentire, and more. ®
