Funk Software Opens European Headquarters in Belgium

The high tech cluster in Flanders, Belgium, just got some increased security. No, not brawny bodyguards but Funk Software, a Massachusetts-based company that offers security, monitoring and support systems for computer networks.

The company opened its European headquarters in Zaventem, providing pre-sales and sales support to customers across the continent, the Flanders Foreign Investment Office announced today.

From this location, the company can easily serve its distributors and resellers. “It offers us a central location and flexibility,” notes Johan Custers, Director of European Operations for Funk Software Europe. “In addition, factors such as language capability – our staff speaks three or four each – further position us for growth.”

The Flanders office is a springboard to develop the European market for the company’s software. Funk Software offers two core product lines: Radius Servers, which provides secure authentication, authorization and accounting management for fixed and mobile and wireless LAN networks, and Proxy, remote control and monitoring software for PCs. Three people currently staff the office, although that number is expected to grow significantly as new products and services are introduced.

“Funk Software is an innovator in the field, making the company a strong addition to our technology sector,” notes Lieve Mertens, Business Development Manager for the Flanders Foreign Investment Office in San Francisco. During the past year, numerous US-based software and hi-tech companies have opened facilities in Flanders, an endorsement of the resources available through the region’s well-developed technology cluster.

The Flanders Foreign Investment Office is the leading economic development organization for the Northern region of Belgium. Headquartered in Brussels with offices in Boston, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco, the organization provides counsel, tracks national, regional and local economic trends, and serves as a resource for companies locating or expanding in Flanders.
