Cybersecurity company Integrity360 is set to create 200 jobs over the next three years after investing €8m in its new security operations centre in Dublin.
Around 50 of the new jobs will be based in Ireland, adding to around 100 already employed by the company in Ireland and approximately 500 across the wider group.
