What you’ll be doing...

In an effort to customize and drive greater value out of the Managed Security Services and Vulnerability Management Services, Verizon clients have the ability to add additional Support via a Client Security Engineer (CSE). The Client Security Engineer (CSE) is an integral part of the managed security solution. Our CSE partner with the customer’s network and security architects to create security designs based on best practices and customized to meet the customer security policies.

The CSE is tasked with lifecycle ownership of the environment and works closely with Security Operations Center and back office MSS teams to provide 3rd and/or 4th level operational support, problem resolution, and identify production pain points. As part of the solution, CSE can be engaged to provide proactive project proposals based on capacity monitoring and operational pain points. All security designs are created to support SLA and are therefore optimized to support business continuity. Where possible, we will also look for opportunities to consolidate infrastructure to reduced cost and/or dedicated lanes built for high priority applications. Our CSE have extensive experience with complex designs including those associated with the wide variety of vendor platforms supported by MSS today.
