NEW YORK, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Agio, a leading provider of managed IT and cybersecurity services for the financial services, healthcare and payments industries, announced today that it is expanding its national presence by opening an office in San Francisco, CA.
With its new office, Agio will meet the increasing demand for cybersecurity and managed IT services from the region's extensive financial services sector; a constituency that faces perpetual and ever-growing cyber threats as well as complex decisions around cloud strategy and migration planning. The team will support and augment Agio's growing local market share.
"Despite being frequently targeted by bad-actors, West Coast-based hedge funds, private equity and venture capital firms remain under-protected and vulnerable to cyber attacks. They're also struggling with the what, how and when to migrate to the cloud – a trend the industry is adopting across the board," said Bart McDonough, CEO and Founder of Agio. "The opening of our San Francisco office will help us to more effectively service firms in and around Silicon Valley, while simultaneously bolstering our ability to scale nationwide."
Agio is seeking business development professionals, and cybersecurity and technology engineers for its new San Francisco office. Interested applicants can apply here: Agio Careers.

"As our firm continues its impressive growth trajectory, we are thrilled to be expanding our operations to San Francisco," continued McDonough. "This move expands our reach to a market that is hungry for a hybrid provider like Agio, and positions us for future success."
