Agile Business Analyst - Secureworks
Secureworks is a global leader in providing intelligence-driven information security solutions. We play an important role, as no organisation in the world is immune from cyberattacks and the nature of the attack is changing every day. Internet security is a problem that will never be solved. Unlike point products that address a specific technology issue, we attack the problem holistically by analysing threat actor tactics, techniques and procedures, and develop solutions using best-of-breed technologies to protect our clients. We are one of the best in the world at understanding the threat. In short, we give our clients an early warning capability. Secureworks was founded in 1999 and headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., with offices in all the major security markets around the globe. We have more than 2,000 team members, and partner with more than 4,400 clients in 61 countries to keep the bad guys out of their networks. We've been consistently recognised by industry analysts, readers' polls and as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for managed security services, worldwide.
