RSA Security – Why Work For Us?

Security programs have evolved to address a range of use cases, typically resulting in a variety of point solutions deployed for defense-in-depth. Targeted attacks represent a more acute challenge, whereby adversaries establish an attack infrastructure consisting of tools, tactics, and procedures that have been specifically designed to bypass traditional security measures.

The RSA Advanced Cyber Defense Practice helps safeguard the organizational mission by focusing on the protection of high-value assets, which are the object of targeted attacks, and by reducing breach exposure time. The portfolio also addresses the development of incident-handling processes and procedures, and the automation of related workflows, which drives operational efficiencies. Finally, Advanced Cyber Defense emphasizes solution components that can adapt as attacker tools, tactics, and procedures evolve: By focusing on content, threat, and analytic data-gathering capabilities and information, the services enable customers to generate actionable intelligence.

The aggregation and analysis of threat data are key counter measures, facilitating the development of proactive indicators of compromise and enabling tracking of various adversaries and attack techniques. These capabilities enable the organization to evolve from a reactive stance to a more proactive advanced-cyber-defense posture.

Founded as an independent company in 1982, RSA Security, Inc. was acquired by EMC Corporation in 2006 and operates as a division within EMC.
