New jobs coming to Fairfax as IT security company expands

A $6 million expansion is expected to mean 95 new jobs at the SAP National Security Services, Inc. offices in Herndon.

SAP NS2 is the independent U.S.-based arm of SAP, a major enterprise software company. It’s had an office in Fairfax County since 2007 and currently has 150 employees there.

“We are pleased to expand our operations in Fairfax County’s thriving technology corridor,” says Mark Testoni, president and CEO of SAP NS2. “This area offers us access to a talented tech workforce with close proximity to our customers and business partners.”

Virginia competed against Maryland and Pennsylvania for this project.

“Fairfax County is a perfect location for a company like SAP NS2 that uses a big data platform for national security work,” says Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “We have the right kind of workforce and proximity to customers in both the public and private sectors.”

The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) to secure this project for Virginia. VEDP will support SAP NS2’s new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program. State-funded VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.
