IBM plans to create 100 new full-time jobs over the next three year in its cybersecurity division in New Brunswick.

Company officials and Premier Brian Gallant made the announcement today in Fredericton.

Gallant says the expansion of IBM's operations in New Brunswick means valuable information technology jobs and a strong foundation for continued growth in the cybersecurity sector in the province.

The premier met with IBM and other companies earlier this month at a cybersecurity conference in San Francisco.

Gallant says the Fredericton area is already a centre of excellence for cybersecurity but more needs to be done to promote it to others in the industry.

He says the area already has a number of major IT companies like IBM, as well as the University of New Brunswick and CFB Gagetown, who all have an interest in cybersecurity.

In 2011, IBM bought Q1 Labs whose QRadar Security Intelligence Platform was developed in partnership with the University of New Brunswick.

IBM maintains a research development and customer support centre in Fredericton.
