When do you expect to fully build out the Boston Cyber Experience Center?

We're not going to just hire anybody. We're going to be very disciplined with who we bring on. Obviously, these are really critical hires for us. They're expensive hires, and ones where we need to find the right mix of new hires out of college and old salty veterans. So that's not something you can just add water to and create overnight. We certainly anticipate having 50 to 100 people here by the end of the year, and we'll just continue to hire as fast as we can when the find the right candidates. I do think diversity is an incredibly important part of being able to look at a problem from all angles. And it's not just gender or race or ethnicity. It's also the educational disciplines. I personally was a history and economics major, so even though I got into cyber very early on, I think about things a little bit differently than other people. And I can't do it alone. This takes a multidiscipline and multithought process approach to thinking outside the box. So I would encourage everybody, whether they're a software developer or not, to come and consider a career at Forcepoint.

Is there anything else you want the channel community to know?

Forcepoint has been around for a while, even though the name is fairly new. I've been super appreciative of the partners who've been with us for a decade or more, in some cases. We're thrilled with the new partners that have been coming into our ecosystem, and they have our full commitment to stand true to our word. We're going to do what we say, and hopefully we can build a really transformative cybersecurity company together.
