Centripetal, the global leader in intelligence powered cybersecurity, today announced that it has opened its Galway based European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence to address cybersecurity opportunities in the UK, Ireland and across Europe. Additionally, the company is enabling cloud-based deployments of its CleanINTERNET® solution for total enterprise protection. Centripetal is headquartered in the US and has plans to create 50 jobs in Galway. The project is supported by the Government of Ireland through IDA Ireland.
According to the International Trade Administration, the cybersecurity market in Ireland is thriving, valued at €280 million. However, with economic crime and fraud on the rise in recent years, cybercrime is extremely disruptive in how it impacts the business community. Grant Thornton Ireland reports that the cost of cybercrime in Ireland exceeded €9.6 billion in 2020. With the opening of Centripetal’s European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence, the company will bring its innovative, patented technologies to the European market to protect organizations from every known cyberthreat.
Centripetal’s European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence will serve as the central hub where new and existing customers can work with Centripetal to gain insight on the current European and global threat landscape and how they might be affected. Customers will have access to Centripetal’s global cyber intelligence operations analyst team, who continuously analyze emerging threats, highlighting critical risks and applying global threat intelligence.
“Today’s jobs announcement is yet another vote of confidence in Galway, in our available skilled workforce and in our city and county as a great place to work and live. Galway was home to a number of significant investment announcements last year including Fidelity Investment, Genesys, SAP and Diligent, so Centripetal are certainly in good company,” said Minister Hildegarde Naughton TD. “Congratulations again to the entire team at Centripetal and thank you for choosing not only Galway but the people of Galway.”
‘’The news that Centripetal is to open a European Cyber Intelligence Centre of Excellence in Galway is great news for the West Region and this investment will support the development of the wider technology ecosystem in Ireland for cyber,” said Anne-Marie Tierney Le-Roux, Head of Department Enterprise Technology at IDA Ireland. “The creation of 50 jobs is a vote of confidence in the talent and skill set that our regional locations in Ireland have to offer. I would like to wish Centripetal every success as they scale operations.’’
To give customers the ability to access intelligence powered cybersecurity everywhere, Centripetal’s CleanINTERNET® CLOUD is now available for deployment. The CleanINTERNET® service is a revolutionary approach to defending a company’s assets from cyber threats by leveraging dynamic threat intelligence on a mass scale. The solution can be deployed to protect assets running in cloud environments, providing unparalleled cyber defense and removing the need for more costly cybersecurity infrastructure. The addition of AWS cloud support extends CleanINTERNET® to protect all enterprise assets whether on premises, remote or in the cloud. Centripetal will additionally provide CleanINTERNET® on Azure and Google Cloud Platform in late 2023.
“Centripetal is the only cybersecurity vendor that delivers intelligence powered protection that neutralizes every known cyberattack at the network level while simultaneously driving down the cost of security operations,” said Jonathan Rogers, Chief Operating Officer for Centripetal. “Our innovative technology is an industry first and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the IDA to bring our solution to Ireland and the UK to not only provide unparalleled protection for our customers but also valuable employment opportunities for the country.”

SOC Prime, provider of the world’s largest and most advanced platform for collective cyber defense, today announced its integration with Amazon Security Lake, the AWS security service that enables organizations to automatically centralize security data from the cloud, on-premises, and custom data sources into a purpose-driven data lake stored in their account. SOC Prime drives a transformational change in cybersecurity relying on zero-trust & multi-cloud approach to empower smart data orchestration, dynamic attack surface visibility, and cost-efficient threat hunting. Backed by its advanced cybersecurity solutions, Uncoder AI, Attack Detective, and The Prime Hunt, SOC Prime enables organizations to boost their cyber defense capabilities at scale, unleashing the power of Amazon Security Lake.
Leveraging SOC Prime’s Uncoder AI, an Augmented Intelligence framework, security teams can save development time and migration costs with re-usable threat hunting queries automatically convertible to Amazon Athena and OpenSearch in the standard Open Cybersecurity Schema Framework (OSCF) format.
SOC Prime’s Attack Detective tool intelligently and automatically queries security logs in the customer's Amazon Security Lake account via Amazon Athena and Amazon OpenSearch to identify data sources and then scan them in real time with a curated set of threat hunting queries. By leveraging Attack Detective, security engineers can channel their efforts directly into incident investigation rather than analyzing overwhelming volumes of alerts and accelerate threat research by validating over 10,000 adversary behaviors against the stored log sources in a matter of hours. Attack Detective follows core Zero-Trust Architecture (ZTA) principles segregating the data plane and control plane to ensure that no SIEM or EDR access credentials are shared or inherited within the Company profile. The tool provides complete threat visibility based on the organization-specific logs by linking and correlating with SIEM and EDR on-premises data in its native location without the need to migrate it to the cloud, which contributes to significant cost savings and ensures compliance with zero-trust basic tenets.
Adding to investment optimization capabilities, The Prime Hunt open-source browser extension enables security professionals to extract valuable data from large datasets at a lower cost. Users can seamlessly run threat hunting queries on security logs within the Amazon Security Lake account via a web browser in both Athena and OpenSearch and automatically identify accounts and assets affected by the suspected activity.

Illumio, Inc., the Zero Trust Segmentation company, today launched the Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation ROI Calculator, a self-service tool that quantifies what an organization’s return on investment (ROI) on Illumio’s Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) platform would be, bringing more clarity into their decision-making process.
In a difficult economy, organizations need to understand and be able to show the impact of every dollar they spend, and they need solutions that deliver a reliable return on investment. By answering a few simple questions related to their specific business environment, respondents will receive a written assessment of the quantitative impact Illumio ZTS would have on their organization, which will arm decision makers with data to support further investment in cybersecurity initiatives that reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches.
Illumio recently commissioned a Total Economic ImpactTM of Illumio Zero Trust Segmentation (ZTS) study from Forrester Consulting, who interviewed Forrester analysts, Illumio stakeholders, and Illumio customers from organizations of varying sizes and industries to inform their findings. The study found that Illumio delivered a total benefit of $10.2 million over three years and paid for itself in six months for a composite organization. Additionally, over three years Illumio ZTS:
Reduced a cyberattack’s blast radius by 66 percent by restricting lateral movement, which saved $1.8 million via decreased overall risk exposure.
Drove $3 million in savings via tool consolidation and reduced firewall costs.
Saved $3.8 million by limiting unplanned downtime.
Increased InfoSec’s operational efficiency by $1.6 million by reducing the time and effort needed to implement security policy.
Delivered 111 percent return on investment.
“The security industry is moving from the prevention and detection eras to the breach containment era to minimize the impact of breaches on the broader organization,” said PJ Kirner, CTO and co-founder at Illumio. “With a challenging economy, CFOs and boards are asking security teams to quantify the return on their investments. With this ROI calculator, leaders can validate the impact ZTS would have on their specific organization, accelerating the implementation of core security strategies that augment prevention and detection technologies to reduce risk and increase resilience to breaches more quickly.”
