F-Secure is a world-renowned cyber security company with a diverse portfolio of products and services, from award-winning endpoint protection solutions and consumer security products, all the way to world-class cyber security consulting services and managed detection and response services. Put simply, we protect both private citizens, and the critical businesses and governments that they depend upon, from cyber threats.

F-Secure Countercept is our managed detection and response (MDR) service. Our mission is to protect our clients from advanced, targeted cyber-attacks. We do this by having a world-class team of threat hunters, incident responders and researchers. We do this by testing ourselves with attacks from our own red teams and by building the best technology we can to support the great people that we have. The end result? We have an exceptional track record of successfully protecting our clients from attacks by both serious organised crime groups and nation state attackers.

One of the coolest things about F-Secure is working with true leaders in the field of cyber-security. We are pioneering in many areas and, for almost any aspect of cyber-security you can think of, you will be able to find someone who is an expert in it. If you are deeply passionate about cyber-security and want to be surrounded by people you can learn from, then you will love it here.

What you will have access to:

  • In-house Malware Intelligence – We have various in-house technologies connected to different cyber security products we offer that collect huge amounts of data on files seen executing, sandbox executions, URLs visited, certificates observed etc.
  • APT Incident Response – Our IR team regularly deals with major incidents across the world which provides findings that are extremely valuable for remaining at the front line of the ever-changing threat landscape

Across the various areas of the business, such as consultancy, MDR and security software development, you can at least one expert in almost any area of technology or security that you can think of
