Lockpath expands Overland Park headquarters
Published on October 18, 2012
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS — The Overland Park Chamber Economic Development Council is pleased to announce the expansion of Lockpath, an Overland Park software company that provides governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) applications. Lockpath expects to increase its employee base by 400% during the next five years, adding nearly 100 new employees. Lockpath will move to a larger office space at the corner of College and Quivira in Overland Park in the coming months to accommodate its rapid expansion.
“Lockpath is an ideal example of a local company that is truly succeeding and growing,” said Carl Gerlach, mayor of Overland Park. “I want to extend my congratulations to the Overland Park-based company for its impact on the technology world and our nationally recognized community.”
Lockpath was founded by Chris Caldwell, CEO, and Chris Goodwin, CTO, to help companies and government agencies manage regulations and security risk. Its flagship product, Keylight™, correlates security information from multiple data sources with current regulations and policies to gauge risk. The company’s rapid growth is being fueled by collaboration with its customers and partners to address several lingering industry problems.
“Even though it’s been tempting to move Lockpath’s operations near or in Silicon Valley, the greater Kansas City area actually has a healthy technology and security scene, which fits us nicely. Plus, being centrally located has its advantages when working with customers on both coasts,” said Caldwell.
Based on its recent success, Lockpath has received a handful of awards including finalist for the MIT 2012 Innovation Showcase, Corporate Integrity’s 2012 GRC Technology Innovation Award, and 2012 CRN Emerging Vendor List.
“I’m excited that Lockpath will add more high-paying jobs to its ranks as it continues to grow in Overland Park,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “Lockpath offers products and services across a wide variety of industries – from education and entertainment to financial services and retail. I wish them continued success.”
Lockpath is a market leader in corporate governance, risk management, regulatory compliance (GRC) and information security (InfoSec) software. The company’s flexible, scalable and fully integrated suite of applications is used by organizations to automate business processes, reduce enterprise risk and demonstrate regulatory compliance to achieve audit-ready status. Lockpath serves a client base of global organizations ranging from small and midsize companies to Fortune 10 enterprises in more than 15 industries. The company is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas.
