Contracts Senior Advisor

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 4,200 clients in 59 countries to keep the bad guys out of their networks. Weve been consistently recognized by industry analysts, readers polls and as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for managed security services, worldwide.
