WORCESTER — A Central Massachusetts-based software company is the latest tenant moving to One Mercantile.
ComputerVault Inc. has signed an eight-year lease at One Mercantile beginning in January, moving its corporate headquarters to downtown Worcester.
The Marlborough-based company will occupy 5,605 square feet of office space on the fifth floor of One Mercantile, according to Chip Norton, managing director of Mercantile Center, One Mercantile, the Worcester Business Center and the Southbridge Innovation Center.
“We are pleased to welcome ComputerVault to our property here at One Mercantile. We know they will enjoy all downtown Worcester with all it has to offer and that they will contribute to our thriving downtown community,” Norton said. “Their commitment to join us for eight years is significant, especially during the pandemic and the current challenging times we are all experiencing.”
ComputerVault creates software products aimed at reducing the threat of malware and ransomware through virtual desktops, servers, hyperconverged infrastructure and IoT software with built-in cybersecurity.
One Mercantile, the 214,000-square-foot office building downtown was formerly occupied by Unum but the insurance firm decided to permanently vacate more than 125,000 square feet of office space last summer as employees transitioned to remote work.
