Global cybersecurity firm eyes ‘rapid’ growth from new Irving headquarters » Dallas Innovates


A global cybersecurity firm locates its US operations in North Texas.

Taiwan’s TXOne Networks, which focuses on operational technology networks and devices, has announced that Irving will be the new headquarters of its Headquarters Americas.

“This market environment is driving our rapid growth in the Americas,” Terence Liu, CEO of TXOne, said in a statement. “We have assembled an experienced team with unique expertise to help businesses counter cyber threats that could cripple day-to-day operations.”

The company establishes its American headquarters in the Urban towers complex in Las Colinas (above), according to the Dallas Morning News.

TXOne plans to “rapidly” expand its team

The company said the move will strengthen its channel and customer support businesses. With clients in manufacturing, healthcare, and oil and gas, he says Las Colinas’ location will put him close to a number of technology-focused and Fortune 500 companies.

To help TXOne support future growth in the region, the company said it would “rapidly” expand its team, focusing on its technical and commercial teams.

The new office is led by Jeff DePasse, the former vice president of Midwest sales for cybersecurity software giant Trend Micro, which also has its U.S. headquarters in Irving. Other TXOne executives in the new office include channel director John Elder; Austen Byers, technical director; and From Anne O’Connell, Director of Marketing.

“Companies in America’s most critical industries — from manufacturing to health care to power and energy — are highly vulnerable to modern digital threats,” DePasse said in a statement. “Establishing this regional presence is vital for our customers in the Americas. We are rapidly growing the team…and building the channel to give our clients the peace of mind they need to both confidently maintain day-to-day operations and boldly pursue future opportunities.

Growth Fueled by $12.9M Series A

TXOne was launched in 2019 as a joint venture between Japanese company Trend Micro and Taiwanese automation solutions company Moxa. The company also has offices in Taipei City, Taiwan; Tokyo; and the Netherlands, the latter of which TXOne extended to in April support European growth.

The company’s growth is fueled by a $12.9 million Series A funding round led by JAFCO Asia Investments and Jade Stone Jinghua Limited Partnership Fund last August, which brought TXOne’s total funding to $23.7 million. At the time, TXOne said it had grown 100% over the past three years.
