This is an outstanding opportunity for you, a 3rd line / level 3 Security Engineer – or NSOC, to join a leading Network and Security Company in Central London.

The key skill we need is the ability to analyse and interpret information provided by security controls, including SIEM, and provide high-quality updates to our customers. A good understanding of the anatomy of an attack underpins this (ie what would someone do if they were trying to compromise a system etc). This is not the same as the skill-set needed to implement NW security controls.

You will be joining a team of highly skilled and passionate IT Security professionals and working to support leading organisiations with cutting edge, interesting and varied technical set ups.    You will be responsible for:

• Analysis of alerts arising from Security Event and Information Management tools. (SIEM)

• Vulnerability Scanning and reporting – ideally on Qualys.

• Implementation of next generation Intrusion Prevention Solutions based on Cisco Firepower, Checkpoint and Palo Alto technologies.

• Creating / Modifying firewall configurations and policies for Cisco ASA, Checkpoint and Palo Alto.

• Creating / Modifying device configurations across Cisco Security, switching, routing products.

• To provide technical leadership to Level 1 and 2 Engineers

• To work with and have a strong understanding of Cisco based network design and implementation (LAN and WAN) within mid-market and blue-chip organisations.

• To work with service providers and network management platforms such as SolarWinds.


In order to be successful in your application, you should have:

• Good experience with SIEM – Security Event and Information Management tools. Ideally ArcSight.

• Excellent communication, written and verbal.

• Ideally an upper 2nd degree in a relevant subject (this is not essential)

• CompTIA Security or equivalent experience

Desirable but not essential skills would be:

• GIAC Information Security Fundamentals or equivalent experience

• ITIL Foundation certification


• Checkpoint CCSE

• Palo Alto ACE

• ArcSight


Experience in any of the following (2 or more would be great):

Checkpoint, CCNA Security, CryptoCARD/RSA, F5, Forescout CounterACT, Riverbed Steelhead, SolarWinds, ArcSight.

If you are a Level 3 Security Engineer, with strong skills around SIEM such as ArcSight or similar, and you are looking to join a leading IT Network Security company in London, then please send your CV to me today.
