AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lepide, a provider of IT security and compliance solutions, picked Austin as it new global headquarters. Lepide, which also has offices in London and New Delhi, employs 236 staff and plans to grow its Austin staff to 50 over 18 months.
In the past year, Lepide has seen its U.S. sales grow 76% and expects even better results for the remainder of 2017. Lepide serves mid- to large-sized companies in a variety of industries: healthcare, insurance, finance, legal, education and government. The IT security market’s size and current growth trajectory in the U.S. led to Lepide’s decision to move its headquarters to American soil.
“We felt amazing synergy between our growth plans and the Austin business culture of innovation and entrepreneurship,” says Aidan Simister, CEO of Lepide. “Austin has a ton of top IT talent and a continuous flow of IT graduates from local universities like University of Texas. With its location in Texas, Austin quickly became the ideal spot for us to set up shop and serve our growing base of U.S. clients.”
Lepide provides organizations with a simple, affordable way of tracking changes made to critical IT systems, monitoring data access and uncovering file and folder permissions from one consolidated dashboard.
“The world becomes alarmed when large data breaches occur, but what’s rarely discussed is that much greater financial harm occurs from hard-to-spot, frequent and erosive data leakage incidents. Most of these problems result from fundamental issues surrounding lack of insight or control over access rights and data interaction of those already inside the organization,” says Simister.
Constant monitoring of critical IT systems with a solution like Lepide helps spot privilege abuse or misuse that often results in data leakage, downtime, customer fraud and failed compliance audits. For more information, please visit: https://www.lepide.com.
