Centripetal, the global leader in intelligence powered cybersecurity, announced that it has opened its Galway based European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence to address cybersecurity opportunities in the UK, Ireland and across Europe. Additionally, the company is enabling cloud-based deployments of its CleanINTERNET solution for total enterprise protection. Centripetal is headquartered in the US and has plans to create 50 jobs in Galway. The project is supported by the Government of Ireland through IDA Ireland

Centripetal’s European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence will serve as the central hub where new and existing customers can work with Centripetal to gain insight on the current European and global threat landscape and how they might be affected. Customers will have access to Centripetal’s global cyber intelligence operations analyst team, who continuously analyze emerging threats, highlighting critical risks and applying global threat intelligence. 

Minister Hildegarde Naughton TD, said, “these jobs announcement is yet another vote of confidence in Galway, in our available skilled workforce and in our city and county as a great place to work and live. Galway was home to a number of significant investment announcements last year including Fidelity Investment, Genesys, SAP and Diligent, so Centripetal are certainly in good company. Congratulations again to the entire team at Centripetal and thank you for choosing not only Galway but the people of Galway.”

Anne-Marie Tierney Le-Roux, Head of Department Enterprise Technology at IDA Ireland, said, “the news that Centripetal is to open a European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence in Galway is great news for the West Region and this investment will support the development of the wider technology ecosystem in Ireland for cyber. The creation of 50 jobs is a vote of confidence in the talent and skill set that our regional locations in Ireland have to offer. I would like to wish Centripetal every success as they scale operations.’’

To give customers the ability to access intelligence powered cybersecurity everywhere, Centripetal’s CleanINTERNET CLOUD is now available for deployment. The CleanINTERNET service is a revolutionary approach to defending a company’s assets from cyber threats by leveraging dynamic threat intelligence on a mass scale. The solution can be deployed to protect assets running in cloud environments, providing unparalleled cyber defense and removing the need for more costly cybersecurity infrastructure. The addition of AWS cloud support extends CleanINTERNET to protect all enterprise assets whether on premises, remote or in the cloud. Centripetal will additionally provide CleanINTERNET on Azure and Google Cloud Platform in late 2023. 

Jonathan Rogers, Chief Operating Officer for Centripetal, said, “Centripetal is the only cybersecurity vendor that delivers intelligence powered protection that neutralizes every known cyberattack at the network level while simultaneously driving down the cost of security operations. Our innovative technology is an industry first and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the IDA to bring our solution to Ireland and the UK to not only provide unparalleled protection for our customers but also valuable employment opportunities for the country.”
