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 purchase additional support via a Client Security Engineer (CSE) (formally Security Life Cycle Engineer (SLCE) or Client Engineer (CE)).

Client Security Engineer (CSE) is another 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. You will ensure that new designs support appropriate capacity levels and then provide ongoing capacity management though-out the design life cycle. You are 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.

Our CSEs have a passion for both security infrastructure and security analytics; as such they might be supporting management only, monitoring only or solutions that are a combination of both. This requires a broad skillset and good work experience.
