technological talent, research universities and affordable cost of
living. It was the right choice for investment,” said Manish Sarin,
Exabeam CFO. “Just last year, Atlanta was declared the third fastest
growing city in the U.S., and we are excited to be a part of the
technology renaissance happening throughout the region with the opening
of our Midtown location.”

“With insider threats increasing and external adversary attacks always
evolving, it is critical that Exabeam hires top talent to support our
customers’ security operations teams and keep our SIEM technology on the
cutting edge. By expanding into Atlanta, we are not only setting up a
hub closer to our East Coast and European customers but are gaining
access to a diverse, highly-qualified pool of candidates,” said Nir
Polak, CEO of Exabeam. “We plan to immediately begin recruitment from
the top technology programs and historically black colleges throughout
the state. We look forward to building out our latest world-class team
in Atlanta.”

Polak and Sarin celebrated with a ribbon cutting event at the Proscenium
building in Midtown Atlanta this morning.

“Cybersecurity is one of metro Atlanta’s industry sectors where we’re
leading the way with capacity and innovation,” said Hala Moddelmog,
president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Exabeam is a welcome
addition to our region’s portfolio of industry-changing companies that
are helping to redefine the way businesses protect themselves and their
customers in the ever-evolving data-driven market.”

Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Senior Project
Manager Randall Toussaint represented the Global Commerce Division in
partnership with the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.
