MX-Sweep creates new jobs in Trim

Puts its money where its Meath is

Using blade systems to cut costs and sharpen efficiencies

Irish e-security firm MX-Sweep is to create 10 new jobs as it positions itself to expand in both the Irish and international markets.

The firm, which has its offices in Britain, has decided to open a European sales headquarters in Trim, Co. Meath. MX-Sweep currently employs four staff primarily in executive roles. This latest recruitment drive will see it adding 10 sales and administration staff to its ranks as it bids to boost its domestic and international sales.

Announcing the decision, MX-Sweep chief executive Declan O'Connor said the firm chose Trim after an extensive search. "We looked at the infrastructure, the access, and the facilities in the area and concluded that Trim was the ideal location for us. From here we can readily serve our growing international customer base which spans across the UK, Europe, Canada, and the USA."

MX-Sweep's solutions focus on e-mail security, specifically intercepting spam - including infected or fraudulent mail - before it reaches a company's network. The firm says it differs from its competitors in that it offers corporate level solutions at affordable prices; the firm works on a pay-as-you-go system with no need for additional hardware or software to be installed.

MX-Sweep claims to be Ireland's only indigenous developer of these type of security products.

The issue of spam and fraudulent mails has never been more topical, particularly in light of the recent phishing scam that managed to trick a number of Bank of Ireland customers into parting with EUR160,000. O'Connor says that as much as 70 percent of e-mail arriving in companies' inboxes is unsolicited, a phenomenon that has led to increasing numbers of business owners taking the threat more seriously by deploying mail filtering solutions. ®
