With more than a dozen locations in the U.S. and around the world, ISSQUARED™ Inc. sought to expand its national reach, while also growing its offerings, service capabilities and talent pool. To do so, the company wanted to establish a new data center along with a global Cyber Security Operations Center.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our national reach, while also significantly widening our offerings, service capabilities, and talent pool to serve our customers by establishing a data center in Solon, Ohio. We chose Ohio because of the business-friendly environment, the vibrant local community, access to a rich and growing talent pool, along with proximity to several world-class universities.
