You’ll work with in-house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we’ll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of enterprise security. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like advanced analytics, certificate management processes, and security systems integration visualization. You’ll be able to gain experience in the administration and coordination of system architectures while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the defensive posture of the organization through Cybersecurity.
