IRVINE, Calif. – October 23, 2018 — Cylance Inc., the leading provider of AI-driven, prevention-first security solutions, has received the Emerging Business Investment award in this year’s Invest In Ireland Awards. The award recognises Cylance’s estimable investment in the local economy.

Invest in Ireland awards reward organisations’ contributions to Ireland and the Irish economy. Ireland’s impeccable track record of attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) over the last 50 years, a driving force behind the country’s economic success, attracts increased capabilities and performance of enterprises doing business in-country. On October 18th, Cylance was recognized for its contribution to that growth.

“Cylance strives to be a great partner to local communities around the world,” said Ian McAleese, international human resources director at Cylance. “Ireland’s multilingual, diverse workforce spans sales, customer support, and threat research, which made Cork an ideal location to support customers throughout the EMEA region. We are proud to have been recognised with this award and look forward to continuing to invest in operations in Ireland as we deliver on our mission to protect the world against cyber attacks.

Cylance opened its offices in Cork in 2016 to meet global demand for CylancePROTECT® the company’s award-winning, next-generation endpoint protection product, while providing in-region customer support. Since that time, Cylance has generated hundreds of jobs and continues to expand its footprint in Ireland and around the world.
