LockPath, a software company that provides governance, risk, and compliance, plans to move to a larger office space at the corner of College and Quivira in Overland Park, Kansas, to accommodate its rapid expansion, adding about 100 employees.
"Even though it's been tempting to move LockPath's operations near or in Silicon Valley, the greater Kansas City area actually has a healthy technology and security scene, which fits us nicely. Plus, being centrally located has its advantages when working with customers on both coasts," said Chris Caldwell, CEO said. Information on the firm's investment in its relocation was not immediately available.
"LockPath is an ideal example of a local company that is truly succeeding and growing," said Carl Gerlach, mayor of Overland Park. "I want to extend my congratulations to the Overland Park-based company for its impact on the technology world and our nationally recognized community."
LockPath was founded by Chris Caldwell, CEO, and Chris Goodwin, chief technology officer, to help companies and government agencies manage regulations and security risk. Its flagship product, Keylight, correlates security information from multiple data sources with current regulations and policies to gauge risk.
"I'm excited that LockPath will add more high-paying jobs to its ranks as it continues to grow in Overland Park," said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. "LockPath offers products and services across a wide variety of industries from education and entertainment to financial services and retail."
