Why Red Canary

Red Canary was founded to make security for every business better by protecting organizations around the world from cyber threats. Our combination of market defining technology, processes, and expertise delivered using an innovative SaaS model is preventing breaches every day.

The Cyber Incident Response Team (CIRT) continues to push the boundaries of threat detection and response with a unique combination of operations, threat research, and engineering in tight integration with the development team that designs our analysis platform and the Red Canary Threat Detection Engine.

Why You Matter

The security landscape is always shifting and introducing new adversaries. The Red Canary CIRT operates 24/7 to track down threats in endpoint data and deliver fast and actionable detections to our customers.

We let the automation framework handle the mundane tasks, so that you can remain focused on solving complex and critical problems for our customers. 

Note: The Detection Engineering team is currently fully staffed, but we will continue to review all applications. Please also be aware that at this time, Red Canary is only able to hire individuals who are geographically located in the United States or United States Territories.
