FireEye, a publicly-traded cybersecurity company based in Silicon Valley, has moved into an expanded office in Reston.
The new location at 11955 Freedom Drive in Reston will house the company’s biggest security operations center. More than 300 employees are expected to work at the new site.
Charles Carmakal, the company’s vice president, told Reston Now that FireEye’s new location offers “room for future expansion needs.”
“In line with this, FireEye plans to continue to hire top security professionals for all roles out of Reston, including technology, engineering and consulting,” he said.
FireEye offers a single platform for organizations struggling to prevent and respond to cyber attacks. Since it was founded in 2004 by Ashar Aziz, the company has filed more than 150 patents for technology related to cyber threat protections.
Carmakal also said the company chose Reston to leverage technology security talent present in the Dulles Technology Corridor. The company has had offices in Reston since 2011.
The company also has offices in Alexandria, where FireEye’s cybersecurity consultants are located. Overall, the company has more than 7,700 clients in 103 countries.
