Data Locker expanding operations in Overland Park

Data Locker Inc. announced today that it will add 29 new jobs in Overland Park over the next five years. Data Locker, an international data security provider, is expanding at its current location in Lighton Tower at 7500 College Blvd.

Founded in 2007, Data Locker currently has 15 employees, seven in the Overland Park office and eight outside the region. When the company began, its main clients were military and governmental agencies. The company has expanded its client base to banks, hospitals, law firms, Fortune 500 companies and educational institutions.

“When we launched Data Locker, my colleagues told me the company needed to be in Silicon Valley, Boston or D.C.,” explained Jay Kim, co-founder and president of Data Locker. “After evaluating our options, I could not find an area that offered the tremendous resources, talent pool and low operational costs that Johnson County had to offer.”

“Several years ago Overland Park received national attention as one of the top five places in the nation to start a business,” said Carl Gerlach, mayor of Overland Park. “Today, Data Locker, an international company, is a perfect example of the entrepreneurial spirit that thrives in Overland Park. I want to say congratulations to Jay Kim on his success and the latest announcement to triple the size of the company over the next five years.”

“I’m excited about Data Locker’s expansion and job growth in Overland Park,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “With the company’s international client base, intellectual property and quality line-up of products and applications, the future looks very promising for Data Locker.”
