Location: Columbia, MD/remote

The Company:

Based in Columbia, MD, Attila Security is the leader in portable IP security. The company’s award-winning GoSilent platform was originally developed at NSA to protect government employees from advanced cyber attacks. Built for the cloud world where traditional network perimeters have disappeared, GoSilent helps global enterprises protect their most precious asset - DATA - wherever it resides. By providing visibility, control and threat defense across physical, virtual and cloud applications, Attila protects connected devices from the tidal wave of cyber activity estimated to cost the global economy more than $600 billion annually.
