TransUnion, one of the world’s largest credit risk assessment and information solutions companies, opened its brand new premises in Kaunas in September. The new 800 sq meter facility is located next to the company’s existing Kaunas office, a 2,500 sq meter premises in Žalgiris Arena. The new facility is intended for a team of Lithuanian cyber security specialists who will be continuously monitoring the online security of more than 1,200 company employees and the information systems of TransUnion’s corporate customers worldwide.
TransUnion (formerly Callcredit) has designed its new Kaunas office specifically for the proactive and continuous operation of IT security system teams. The premises has a range of technologies integrated, including smart screens which show updated critical system data, providing greater flexibility for monitoring functions. This in-house technology allows the system’s security status to be proactively monitored. As a result, security incidents can be detected much more quickly and dealt with more efficiently. TransUnion has invested over €175,000 in the premises and its systems.
“Our branch in Kaunas, which has been operating for more than 6 years, has demonstrated strong competence and expertise,” explained Jonas Lukošius, Manager of TransUnion’s Kaunas office, as he showed guests around the new premises and introduced the teams working there. “The platform monitoring teams who are working on cyber security are the only TransUnion UK teams that operate 24/7, ensuring the uninterrupted and stable operation of all systems,” continued Mr Lukošius. “The technologies on the premises enable us to deliver services to our customers even faster. This is particularly important in the context of the rapid expansion and progress of technology, and the increasing security threats that come with this.”
Steve Humm, the Executive Director of TransUnion UK, was keen to emphasise the high esteem the Kaunas team is held in within the company. “With the help of Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), the largest technology university in the Baltic States, Kaunas is becoming a universal city for foreign investors.“
The Kaunas division of TransUnion was previously part of UK credit company Callcredit. In June this year, Callcredit was acquired by TransUnion, one of the world’s largest credit risk assessment and information solutions companies. Founded in 1968, TransUnion is based in Chicago. The company provides consumer data analysis, risk assessment and interactive solution services. Branches of TransUnion operate in North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa. The company currently employs over 5,100 employees.
