PhishLabs is expanding its existing operations in Charleston County, S.C. The company intends to create 45 new jobs during the next three years after relocating its headquarters to the Pacific Box and Crate site. The cybersecurity firm will occupy 25,000 square feet of office space.
Located at 1501 King St., PhishLabs’ offices will be less than half a mile from I-26 and roughly 5 miles from downtown Charleston. Pacific Box and Crate features open green space, a coffee shop, a yoga studio and other work amenities.
“Our new headquarters provides a great environment where team members can work together, grow their talents and make the world a safer, better place,” said PhishLabs Founder & CEO John LaCour, in a prepared statement.
Founded in 2008, PhishLabs fights back against phishing attacks, the primary source of data breaches and online fraud. The company experienced employee growth of more than 170 percent in the past two years and has begun initial hiring for its tech sector jobs. The company’s clients include top financial, technology, healthcare, retail and insurance companies.
