Alert Logic, a provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud, has received a grant by Invest Northern Ireland in support of its security research and technology development center located in Belfast. The £572,000 grant will enable further expansion of its new Belfast office in Northern Ireland by supporting approximately 90 new jobs.
In addition to opening an office in London in 2013 and a Security Operations Center (SOC) in Cardiff, Wales in 2015, Alert Logic has continued its expansion into EMEA with this security research and technology development center in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
