WithSecure™ protects businesses all over the world from modern threats. We do this through a Co-security approach born from first-hand knowledge that no one can solve every cyber security problem alone. Every single day, our diverse, growing team fights against online extortion, threats to national infrastructure, the unlawful spread of sensitive information, and everything in-between. The best part about working for WithSecure is our people! We are a community of dedicated and passionate professionals that take workplace happiness seriously. If you’re looking for something that’s more than just a job – we’d love to hear from you.
WithSecure is world renowned for its End Point Protection solutions – providing preventative and proactive protection to tens of millions of computer and smart devices globally. Over the past few years, the company has successfully entered new markets and has increased its portfolio of solutions to include Cyber Consulting and Managed Detection and Response Solutions.
Our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) business provides a world leading managed service, WithSecure Countercept, that detects and responds to cyber-attacks on behalf of our clients using a strong combination of people, process and technology. Much of the technology is designed and built in house by the WithSecure engineering team specifically to support the managed service or as leveraged products that WithSecure also provides to the wider market.
MDR team comprises several sub teams: the Detection & Response Team (DRT) who uncover adversaries on our client’s networks and contain attacks using their Incident Response skill, the Research Team who uncover new and emerging offensive and defensive techniques, and the Technical Operations team who maintain and develop the attack detection infrastructure to ensure it remains at the bleeding edge.
Currently we are looking for a Junior Threat Hunter to join our growing DRT. The DRT actively monitor the networks of our customers, develop the cutting-edge solutions on which the service is built and use their unique Threat Hunting mindset to continuously improve WithSecure Countercept’s attack detection capability.
We are looking for a candidate with bundles of enthusiasm, a hunger to improve their security knowledge and the desire to combat adversaries targeting our customers’ networks.
