India-based cybersecurity firm Sequretek on Tuesday announced that it plans to open its U.S. headquarters at the Little Rock Technology Park.

The move would bring 50 new jobs to Little Rock over the next three years, almost all of which would pay six-figure salaries, according to the company.

The announcement came at the VenCent Fintech Summit at the Statehouse Convention Center. The three-day event for banking and fintech professionals began Monday.

"We aim to be one of the region’s best technology employers for nurturing and developing talent in the areas of cybersecurity, data science and AI while serving U.S. and international markets," said Anand Naik, Sequretek’s co-founder and CEO.

Sequretek was founded in 2013. The company's services include its Percept Extended Detection and Response (XDR), a combination of technology and skills that delivers threat detection, threat analytics, global threat intelligence, incident mitigation and collaborative breach response. The company says its AI-driven Percept Cloud Security Platform processed over a trillion events and prevented 50,000 attacks for its customers in 2021.

A company profile published for the fall 2021 Finovate fintech conference says Sequretek had revenue of $3.4 million in fiscal 2021 and employed about 400 people across the globe.

Sequretek executives first visited Arkansas in 2020 to participate in the FIS Fintech Accelerator, hosted in partnership with The Venture Center.
