CrowdStrike Inc., the leader in cloud-delivered endpoint protection, today announced the official opening of its new Center of Innovation in the Pipera Technology District, Bucharest.
The office already is home to a fast-growing team of cybersecurity professionals spanning the fields of cloud engineering, security response and data science and is expected to grow as CrowdStrike continues its expansion globally. The center will be crucial hub for driving research, development and innovation to help support the growing demands of CrowdStrike’s expanding global footprint and the company’s ambitious technology roadmap.
”I am very happy to announce the opening of CrowdStrike’s new Center of Innovation in Romania, a country with the top world-class talent in computer science and cybersecurity,” said Dmitri Alperovitch, and co-Founder of CrowdStrike. ”Our growing presence in Romania has already become a critical hub of innovation for our cloud engineering, Windows/MacOS/Linux kernel experts, security research and response, and data science teams and I look forward to continuing to expand our presence in the coming years.”
The company is present in Romania since 2016, when it made an acquisition, but only now it has opened officially the office. The team already has over 30 employees and it plans to hired additional 80 by the end of 2019. Around the world, the company has 1,300 employees.
The new Center of Innovation will give the company a chance to continue to grow and recruit experts from Romania and the wider region as the company continues to develop its market- leading capabilities. The Center has been founded and is headed by Research and Development Director Daniel Radu and Principal Engineer Horea Coroiu.
”As a Romanian expat, I am extremely proud to have been able to support my home country through the opening of this center, and it is my deepest hope that all of this country’s great specialists in kernel programming, systems design, and secure computing will be able to take advantage of our benefits and work opportunities,” said Alex Ionescu, vice president, EDR Strategy at CrowdStrike.
