SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass., April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Confer, a leader in endpoint detection and response (EDR), today announced that due to rapid company growth and market demand, it has expanded the existing Boston sales office and opened a new office in Southborough which will also serve as the company's headquarters. Confer is planning to double in size across both U.S. locations within the calendar year. The domestic growth complements the company's international expansion with newly added operations and channel partners in Europe.
To support business growth, the company is hiring for positions in all departments including customer support, sales, marketing, engineering and G&A. Fueling the intense recruiting effort is the steady demand for Confer's endpoint security platform across all vertical sectors including technology, retail, finance, pharmaceuticals, energy and communications.
"Attackers are constantly developing new tactics that evade legacy endpoint solutions and hinder productivity. Yet organizations often don't have the budget or the resources for an army to defend themselves," said Mark Quinlivan, CEO, Confer. "Our innovative approach levels the playing field. With our Converged Endpoint platform, everyone has the same opportunity to protect themselves, even in a widely dispersed, mobile environment."
Confer's Converged Endpoint is an adaptive defense that integrates prevention, detection and incident response across endpoints, servers and cloud workloads. The solution uses a lightweight sensor allowing businesses to easily secure millions of distributed devices, while busy security teams focus on broader enterprise priorities. The patented technology replicates the same analytics that human beings would perform and automates it within the product, enabling companies of all sizes and budgets to benefit from the best security available.
"Our talented and dedicated employees have been integral to our rapid growth. We're looking forward to expanding our team for future success," added Quinlivan.
