BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA – Cigital, Inc., an industry leader in software security consulting, will host an open house to launch its new office in Bloomington, Indiana, on May 3, 2012. The Bloomington office, located at 100 S. College Ave, is the newest addition to Cigital’s global locations, including Washington DC, New York, Santa Clara, Boston, London, and Amsterdam.
The launch event will feature a fireside chat with security guru, IU alum, and Cigital CTO Dr. Gary McGraw and Visa International CSO Gary Warzala. They will introduce Cigital to the Bloomington community and discuss its impact on the growth of software security as a field. The evening will include live music, drinks, and hors d’ouvres.
The Bloomington office will house the company’s first assessment center outside of its Dulles, Va, headquarters and will be led by Randy Moore, Assessment Center Manager. The new location will provide Cigital with extended capacity to perform remote Application Security Assessments for its Fortune 250 client base. Cigital, which has approximately 200 employees internationally, has already begun hiring new software security consultants.
“Our extensive search for a Midwest nexus ranged from Austin to Ann Arbor. We picked Bloomington for its superior combination of a growing technical employee base, a very strong Informatics program with an emphasis on security, and an absolutely top notch quality of life,” said, Brian Mizelle, VP, Operations, Cigital. “Our welcome to Indiana and to the Bloomington business community has been great. We’re looking forward to putting down roots and becoming part of Indiana business.”
