Job Description

Cienaga System’s DejaVu is the easiest way for organizations to deploy world-class security monitoring or enhance existing cyber threat management capabilities. Using advanced machine learning, our software teaches itself how to hunt for new and innovative cyber threats, in order to defend computer networks from attacks.

In this role, you will take part in one of our most exciting projects, working hand to hand with our team of cybersecurity, enterprise architecture and machine learning experts as well as our largest European partner, to integrate our flagship offering into a new joint B2B offering.

We are looking for a professional, ambitious, goal-oriented individual with a can-do attitude and great problem solving and analytical skills, to join our team and be part of this important project. Working under close guidance from senior Cienaga developers, you will be involved in the design, development, integration support and testing of backend logic to support our partner’s agent and integrate customer data flows into our service offerings.

Requirements
• Completed minimum three years of college-level computer science or related discipline.

Flagship Product
DEJAVU - GENETICALLY ENGINEERED CYBER SECURITY
Unlike anti-malware solutions, which focus solely on exploit detection, DejaVu addresses the cyber kill chain by evaluating attacker actions in the context of their environment and their motivations. DejaVu deploys adaptive, predictive, real-time countermeasures that reduce attacker success rate, without the need for signatures, samples, heuristics or expensive configuration.

Like a Salesforce for cyber-security, our SaaS offering provides a simple to use, low-risk, turn-key option for organizations of every size who currently monitor their networks manually, as well as those who cannot afford the costs of in-house security staff. With minimal configuration changes, organizations can be set up with high quality security for a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions.

Why Cienaga Systems
By reducing the risks of participating in a connected society, our technology reduces frictions and enables a simpler and safer adoption of the internet as the main channel for online business, commerce, communications, learning and entertainment.

We are looking for talented and ambitious candidates who will help us change the future. By joining as an early member of the team you will have the ability to help us steer our efforts from the very beginning, working with highly qualified and approachable teammates.

What We're Building

An autonomous security monitoring and incident containment SaaS solution, DejaVu provides an effective and affordable way for organizations of any size to enable security monitoring and response, with only a few minutes of set up time.

DejaVu is not a replacement for other security technologies. Instead, it focuses on their false negatives, taking the place of human-based monitoring, which can be prohibitively expensive and slow to react. Using an innovative machine learning approach, DejaVu assesses threats in the larger context of the entire kill chain, sidestepping the issues associated with intelligence gathering, which plague other solutions.

Usage is as simple as 1- enrolling in the trial (i.e., providing contact information), 2- redirecting firewall syslogs to our cloud (a simple change), 3- reviewing any alerts generated. After the trial, customers can upgrade to continue receiving predictive capabilities and enterprise-level management metrics and reporting dashboards.
