Gov. Nathan Deal today announced that Courion, a market-leading identity and access management solutions provider, is relocating its international headquarters to a new center for excellence in Roswell, creating more than 100 jobs over the next two years.

“Georgia has seen time and time again innovative companies such as Courion choose our state as their ideal place to do business,” said 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.”

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.

“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 Chief Operating Officer 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.”
