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 malware is straightforward to identify, but 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 Data Team is responsible for running advanced malware identification algorithms on incoming event data streams and storing and indexing that data. We index that data both for future detailed investigations of malware incidents and run applications on a stream of data to identify such malicious behaviour. We strive for sub-second processing latencies in our streaming platforms and databases as they handle data volumes of >100TB/month and growing.
