Who You'll Work With

Billions of times a day, computers around the world communicate with the Cisco Advanced Malware Protection Cloud and rely on the AMP product to protect them against advanced forms of malware. Some malwares are straightforward to identify, and antivirus has done that forever. Our customers need protection against malware that's tricky to identify:

  • Viruses that generate different binaries on every machine they infect
  • Things that seem benign until you start looking closely at their behaviour
  • Malicious programs that have invented new ways of hiding themselves

To make the problem even more interesting: it may only become clear after a few days that a program or behavior was malicious. Does that sound fun to you?

The AMP Private Cloud and management system is a single on-premises product that you install on your hardware through a self-contained virtual machine. The AMP Private Cloud Virtual Appliance connects to Cisco AMP for Endpoints through connectors and directly to Cisco AMP for Networks for protection against network malware.

If using those to help improve computer security sounds exciting, this is the place for you.
