Information security firm Courion to establish Roswell HQ
ATLANTA — Courion, an information security company, plans to relocate its international headquarters to a facility in Roswell in Fulton County. The company expects to create more than 100 jobs in the Atlanta suburb over the next two years.
Courion provides identity governance and administration solutions for more than 600 organizations worldwide. Its products — which include identity provisioning, access governance, identity analytics and intelligence solutions — empower organizations to improve operational efficiency, easily demonstrate compliance and recognize and eliminate access risks that may lead to a data breach.
The expansion will enable the company to increase its geographic footprint in the United States and grow its workforce. Courion is hiring across a variety of functional areas, ranging from sales to software development.
“Courion is recognized as the technology pioneer in identity analytics, a segment within information security that is expected to expand rapidly in response to organizations’ needs to better prevent and detect data breaches,” said Courion Chief Operating Officer Chris Papadakis. “Locating our corporate headquarters in Roswell will enable us to take advantage of the hotbed for talent and innovation in information security that exists in the area.”
Georgia is home to more than 115 information security companies, as well as the new U.S Army Cyber Command headquarters in Augusta. In fact, more than 25 percent of the worldwide security revenue market share is generated by companies located in Georgia.
While the new Roswell location will serve as the company’s new headquarters, Courion will continue to maintain offices in Massachusetts, the United Kingdom and Pune, India.
