Brightmail to open a HQ in Sydney
Anti-spam software vendor, Brightmail, will open its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Sydney by the end of December. The centre — representing an investment of up to $US2 million dollars — will have at least seven full-time staff and include a technical operations centre. It will also feature a technical operations centre, known as a Brightmail Logistics Operation Centre (BLOC), that will be active in the collection and identification of spam as well as distributing spam blocking updates to customers within the region and worldwide. The BLOC will be operational seven days a week with full-time team leaders as well as contract staff. The company’s success in Australia was one reason Sydney was selected for the regional headquarters, Brightmail president and CEO, Enrique Salem, said. “This market [Australia] is probably the fastest moving for us.”
