Enterprise Email Security Architect
The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be "baked in" to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for the U.S. Government? We're looking for an email enterprise architect who can create solutions for the U.S. Government that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a solutions architect on our project, you'll collaborate with operational teams to address emerging requirements, recommend, develop, and implement new security policies, review metrics to assess policy effectiveness, resolve complex customer service tickets, and test and integrate new email security components. You'll coordinate with internal teams, vendors, and client stakeholders to identify the right mix of tools and te chn iques to translate your customer's IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you'll investigate new te chn iques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You'll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions, to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of warfighter communications. Your te chn ical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like zero-day threat detection, anti-spoofing and anti-manipulation email security protocols. You'll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like cross domain reporting, encrypted email inspection, and cloud service provider integration while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve warfighter communication through cyber security . This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.
