New York bot mitigation firm expands into UK with new London office
A firm specialising in collective protection against bot attacks and fraud has announced its expansion into the UK.
White Ops, which is based in New York, is set to open a new office in London as part of its ongoing international growth.
White Ops specialises in protecting firms against malicious bot activity, with experience of dismantling precedent-setting botnets.
The news follows the firm’s funding round in May led by Goldman Sachs Merchant Banking Division and ClearSky Security.
Tamer Hassan, CEO and co-founder of White Ops, commented: “Expanding across the pond was a strategic goal for us after identifying the incredible opportunity for company growth and to hire the incredible humans the UK has to offer.
“This was an ideal moment to use our recent funding to expand into the UK market and tap into one of the world’s tech hotbeds. I’m excited to see White Ops grow here.”
The London team currently has 20 employees, with business development headed up by Yasmine El Hani, who previously worked in senior sales roles at Smart, Yahoo and Orange.
Yasmine El Hani, managing director UK for White Ops, added: “The past months at White Ops have been phenomenal – first the funding round and now our expansion into the UK market.
“I’m proud to be heading up White Ops’ business development efforts in London and know we are going to have a substantial impact protecting the UK and European digital markets.
“We boast a fantastic team of talented people and are already working with some terrific clients, so here’s to a highly successful future here.”
