Accelerated growth and demand in cybersecurity leads A-LIGN to increase international presence to better service existing and new customers
TAMPA, Fla. – Oct. 28, 2019 – A-LIGN, a cybersecurity and privacy compliance solutions provider that specializes in helping businesses navigate the complexities of regulatory and business-driven security and compliance needs, today announced the opening of a new office in Sofia, Bulgaria. The new location marks the company’s first international office expansion.
A-LIGN has experienced an incredible year of growth in 2019, most recently achieving a #43 ranking on the 2019 Florida Fast 100 list, with 135.73 percent growth between 2016 and 2018. The company was also included on this year’s Tampa Bay Business Journal Fast 50, the Seminole 100 and Inc. 5000’s list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in 2019.
“As A-LIGN’s rapid growth continues, we saw the need to expand internationally to be able to meet the needs for our services,” said Scott Price, Chief Executive Officer of A-LIGN. “Companies continue to demand cybersecurity services, such as penetration testing and vulnerability assessments, to take place outside of business hours. An international expansion allows our U.S. employees to avoid working overnight to maintain a work-life balance and have a greater focus on analysis and remediation services for our clients.”
A-LIGN most recently expanded in June, with the opening of its second U.S. office in Denver, CO. The company has also added over 100 new employees and 800 new clients globally this year, increasing the need for an international office.
“Bulgaria made the most sense for our next expansion,” Price said. “Its business climate and pipeline of talented employees, as well as our leadership team’s ties to Bulgaria, made it the perfect location for our first international office.”
