Courion Relocates International Headquarters To Roswell, Georgia

Courion, a market-leading identity and access management solutions provider, is relocating its international headquarters to a new center for excellence in Roswell, Georgia. The company will create more than 100 jobs over the next two years.

“Courion is recognized as the technology pioneer in identity analytics, a segment within information security that is expected to expand rapidly in response to organizations’ needs to better prevent and detect data breaches,” said Courion COO Chris Papadakis. “Locating our corporate headquarters in Roswell will enable us to take advantage of the hotbed for talent and innovation in information security that exists in the area.”

The expansion will enable the information security solution provider to increase its geographic footprint in the United States and grow its employee base. Courion is hiring across a variety of functional areas, ranging from sales to software development.

With its recent acquisition of Bay31, Courion will build upon its analytics team based in the Roswell Center for Operational Excellence. Courion is also planning to pursue new partners and markets for the industry’s most advanced IGA solution, the Access Assurance Suite, through its recent investment by K1 Investment Management. While the new Roswell location will serve as the company’s new headquarters, Courion will continue to maintain offices in Massachusetts, the United Kingdom and Pune, India.

“Georgia has seen time and time again innovative companies such as Courion choose our state as their ideal place to do business,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “Our unique geographical setting and strong logistics framework provide direct access to key locations in the United States and abroad. This, coupled with our nationally recognized business climate, creates a globally preferred location for information security companies such as Courion to better reach their customers.”

“Information security is thriving in Georgia, employing nearly 200,000 workers,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr. “Courion is an excellent addition to this growing network of companies. Having direct access to top talent and other pro-business resources, we look forward to seeing them advance the industry with operations here in Georgia.”

GDEcD Project Manager, Shirlynn Brownell, assisted Courion on behalf of Georgia in partnership with the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.

“We are excited that Courion has chosen to make this investment in Metro Atlanta and look forward to working with them as they expand their presence. The region’s roster of top technology companies and leading universities will be strong assets as Courion seeks to fill critical information security jobs,” said Metro Atlanta Chamber Executive Vice President and COO Brian P. McGowan.
