After experiencing continued growth, PhishLabs, a leading provider of phishing intelligence and training, has expanded its facilities to accommodate new staff.
Over the past two years, PhishLabs has enjoyed employee growth of 170%. The next three years will see PhishLabs employ a further 45 members of staff. The expansion is essential to ensure the company meets demand for its services and continues to excel in its field. The recruitment program for the new positions has already started.
PhishLabs was founded in 2008 to tackle the growing threat from phishing. The company provides end user training offers a phishing simulation service to improve organizations’ resilience against phishing attacks. The company also provides organizations with phishing intelligence, allowing them to take proactive steps to counter the threat. The company now provides phishing training and attack mitigation services to leading companies in the healthcare, technology, finance and social media industries.
The firm has been recognized by Inc. 5000 and Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ as one of the fastest growing tech companies in the United States, with the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce naming the company in its list of Best Places to Work in 2016. The expansion and promise of new jobs will help to put Charleston on the map as a technology center and confirms South Carolina is an important location for technology companies.
Gov. Henry McMaster said, “South Carolina continues to lead the way, not only in manufacturing, but in the booming technology and innovation sectors. Great companies like PhishLabs show the world that businesses of all kinds can succeed here.”
Rather than expand its existing offices, PhishLabs will be relocating to a new Charleston, SC facility – a 25,000 Sq. ft. office space at the Pacific Box and Crate development on King Street. In addition to increased office space, the new facility will include open green space, a yoga studio, coffee shop and other work amenities.
PhishLabs founder and CEO, John LaCour said, “Our new headquarters provides a great environment where team members can work together, grow their talents and make the world a safer, better place.”
