A cybersecurity company with offices in Palo Alto and Columbia is moving to Baltimore, and they’re heading straight for Mr. Boh.
Contrast Security will open an office in Canton. Specifically, the offices will be located in a 3,500-square-foot space in the Natty Boh Tower, which is in the Brewers Hill development, the company announced.
The deal, which is a lease, was brokered by Colliers International.
The office has space for about 30 employees, representing Contrast’s plans to grow from its current local office of 12 employees.
The company, which makes security software that scans applications for threats, markets to enterprise clients, some of which are in the financial industry. Cofounder and CTO Jeff Williams said the presence of the cybersecurity and financial industry in Baltimore was a prime reason for opening an office here. Attracting talent was another reason.
“Smart professionals are also interested in working and living in a place like Baltimore, with its proximity to the government agencies and D.C.,” he said.
The move represents another win for Canton and the Brewers Hill mixed-use development. AOL/Advertising.com also recently completed a relocation into Natty Boh Tower from its previous offices at Under Armour’s complex in Tide Point.
