It is uncertain whether the Australian branch of security vendor, Sophos, will be affected by global staff cuts.
Last week, the vendor announced plans to lay off up to five per cent of its employees.
Sophos spokesman, Graham Cluley, said 75 jobs would be cut across sales and marketing globally in an effort to make those departments more efficient.
In November, Sophos rival, Symantec announced it would trim about 4.5 per cent of the cost of its work force, but would not indicate exactly how many jobs would be affected.
Recently, many companies have cut staff or closed operations to help combat the economic slump. Intel slashed 6000 jobs worldwide and shut four facilities. AMD, Microsoft and Sun have also announced redundancies.
