Computing firm creates 50 jobs
A US based computing company is creating up to 50 jobs in the south-east.
Mycroft Inc, a global leader in delivering IT identity and security solutions, is opening an operations centre in Waterford.
Works on the new site include the development of Mycroft's next generation of Cloud-based IT identity and security solutions, technical support and R&D.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said the employment boost was achieved with the support of Government through IDA Ireland.
"Today's announcement that this world-leading IT company is establishing a facility in Waterford with the creation of 50 jobs in R&D and cloud-based services is a great vote of confidence in the high-tech potential of the regional economy," he added.
Mycroft Inc provides identity management and security solutions to some of the largest financial services, healthcare and government organisations in the world.
Its Irish operation will be run by Waterford native, Sean Hanley, who has been managing the firm's identity management business for the past two years.
Officials said his involvement was key to the decision to locate in Waterford.
Terry Jost, chief executive of Mycroft Inc, said Waterford is an excellent location for the firm's newest facility and will serve as an integral part of our continued growth in the European and Middle East markets.
"We appreciate the ongoing support of IDA Ireland throughout this process and look forward to a long and successful relationship," he added.
