Electronic signature company DocuSign is to open a new cybersecurity 'Centre of Excellence' in Dublin.
The new centre will be conducting research into the latest cyber attacks and trends in order to develop detection tools to battle against them. Over the next three years the centre will focus security orchestration and automation.
The firm said it would "tap further" into the Irish talent pool but did not say how many jobs would be added.
DocuSign director of information security Eoin Hinchy said: "With the proliferation of cyberattacks continuing to grow every day, it is essential to stay ahead of these challenges and mitigate any risk.
"This is exactly what the research and development and the customised security tools from the Centre of Excellence will help us do.”
The San Francisco-based business has more than 100 million users across 188 countries.
IDA Ireland chief Martin Shanahan said the country is fast becoming a leading location for companies fighting cyber crime.
"DocuSign’s Cyber Security Centre of Excellence marks another important contribution to Ireland and to the continuous improvement of cyber security practices around the world," he said.
