US Company Ipswitch, which develops easy to try, buy and use IT Monitoring and Security software, today announced it will establish an EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) support and operations centre in Galway, expecting to create about 60 jobs over five years.

Ipswitch’s new office opening is a critical part of the company’s growth strategy in EMEA. Ipswitch is establishing research and development, sales and technical support teams to help better serve local customers and grow market share in the region. Ipswitch will also locate R&D and product development teams in Galway to provide capability specific to the EMEA region. The move will enable Ipswitch to greatly increase its support for its channel partners and customers across Europe in local languages and time zones.
