FireEye, provider of threat and cyber attack protection solutions, has announced its plans to build a regional customer support centre, which is partly supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board.
The new regional support centre capitalises on the demand for FireEye products in the Asia Pacific region.
Anthony Kolish, FireEye senior vice president of customer services, stated that Singapore's "strong history with technology, pro-business infrastructure and strong regional connectivity" makes the city-state a strategic place for the regional support centre.
The regional support centre is also designed to take advantage of the nation's strong pool of talent; it is expected to create over 100 jobs in the city-state within the next three years.
As part of the Singapore launch, FireEye is hosting a live hiring event on April 10 and 11 from 9am to 5pm at the InterContinental Singapore hotel.
FireEye has sales offices in Japan, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia; support centres in Cork, Ireland and Salt Lake City, Utah in the U.S.; and an R&D centre in Bangalore, India.
