A US based Cybersecurity Company, Arxan Technologies, is set to open a new branch in Vilnius aiming to hire around 40 highly skilled people. Arxan offers guarding solutions injected directly into the client’s binary code and also plans to contribute to building of Lithuania’s cybersecurity community.
According to Andrew Whaley, Arxan’s SVP Head of Engineering:
“We currently have offices in the US, the UK, and Japan. In the near future, Vilnius has the potential to become our largest software development office.”
Offering young professionals an opportunity to get acquainted with cybersecurity, Arxan is working closely with Lithuania’s education sector.
Whaley further commented:
“We already have two interns from Vilnius University. With our current growth rate, we anticipate quickly needing additional interns and we’d welcome students from a variety of programs.”
Lithuanian Minister of Economy Virginijus Sinkevičius also added the following about the recent development:
“Lithuania’s cybersecurity industry is young and still developing, but we already see a potential comparable to that of financial technology and artificial intelligence. The intention of Arxan Technologies to collaborate with the country’s universities to prepare cybersecurity professionals will allow us to strengthen the industry, which will become of critical importance at the backdrop of the fourth industrial revolution – the automation of not just production but also the service sector.”
