CyberCX Launches the New Home of Cyber Security in Auckland

Auckland, New Zealand – Tuesday 28 May 2024


  • Launch of CyberCX facility in Auckland, New Zealand with more than 100 cyber security and cloud professionals
  • State-of-the-art Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Auckland, offering cyber threat detection, monitoring and incident response as part of federated network of nine CyberCX SOCs globally
  • A modern workspace offering great employee experience and a collaboration zone for customers and the cyber community 


CyberCX, the leading trans-Tasman cyber security firm, has celebrated the opening of its Auckland office at 131 Queen Street, the company’s largest workspace in New Zealand designed for engaging employees, customers and communities.

Located in the historic home of iconic Auckland department store Milne & Choyce, the 1920’s heritage building creates a unique and impressive facility for CyberCX in Auckland, a high-tech space occupied by more than 100 leading cyber security and cloud professionals.

CyberCX Group CEO John Paitaridis said “When we launched CyberCX in New Zealand we set out to unify New Zealand’s leading cyber security talent, expertise and capability and to create the country’s first full-service cyber security firm.

“We have made strong investments to expand and grow our capability, service offerings and workforce in New Zealand. Following the launch of our offices in Wellington and Christchurch over the past 24 months, our new nine-year lease in Auckland reflects our long-term commitment to businesses, enterprises and government agencies in New Zealand.”

CyberCX New Zealand CEO Tim Sewell said: “CyberCX has 200 cloud and cyber security professionals across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We have the largest specialised cyber security workforce in New Zealand and an unmatched depth of cyber advisory, risk and technical services to defend New Zealand organisations from global and local cyber threats.

“We designed our new Auckland workspace with the best employee experience in mind coupled with exceptional facilities for our customers and communities to collaborate and solve cyber challenges.”

The new CyberCX Auckland facility includes a state-of-the-art Security Operations Centre (SOC) as part of the company’s global commitment to 24/7 eyes-on-glass threat monitoring capabilities. The Auckland SOC is a high-security zone, joining the Wellington SOC in New Zealand as part of a federated network of nine SOCs globally.

Speaking at the office opening launch event, Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO and former leader of The National Party, The Honourable Simon Bridges said: “In my time across both government and the business sector I have seen firsthand how cyber attacks can have devastating consequences for our New Zealand community. It’s almost impossible to have a conversation with a business leader in Auckland or a policymaker in Wellington about what keeps them up at night without hearing the words ‘cyber security’.

“The reality is that New Zealand is a highly digitised and connected, wealthy economy. Unfortunately this makes us an attractive target for cybercriminal groups, which means that an awareness of cyber risks and efforts to strengthen our defences have become critical to the success of our businesses and the safety and wellbeing of our communities.”

Formerly the location of Milne & Choyce, one of Auckland’s most famous and historical department stores, 131 Queen Street was once described by the Auckland Star as a “magnificent building” which would “rank with the finest establishments of its kind anywhere in the world.” The building is now the new home of cyber security in Auckland.
