We are a world class cyber-security company searching for an experienced Network Analyst to join our network analysis group as we continue to grow. The focus of the job is to improve Lastline's network detection capabilities, which involves analyzing malicious network activity, e.g. drive-by attacks or malware generated C&C traffic, and improving Lastline’s visibility on network threats on the wire as well as enable our analysis back-end, including our advanced sandbox, to use the information in further analyses.
The ideal candidate is analytical and has good knowledge of network protocols as well as a determination to uncover and analyze network threats. An analyst will become familiar with the Suricata IDS system as well as Lastline's other network detection related systems. An inevitable positive side-effect of working as a network analyst is developing a deep understanding of how different threat actors operate and evolve their methods and tools over time, and learning how to approach defending against them. In summary, this job is a perfect fit for a “networking geek”. If that sounds like you, we would love to meet you!
