Cequence Security – Cincinnati (Hybrid/Remote)

Cequence Security builds products to protect the world’s web applications and APIs from threats. Our platform prevents online fraud, business logic attacks, exploits, and sensitive data exposure for global enterprise customers in the finance, banking, retail, social media, travel and hospitality industries, and more.

Cequence Security is the only solution that unifies runtime API visibility, security risk monitoring, and patented behavioral fingerprint-based threat prevention to consistently detect and prevent ever-evolving online attacks. The platform requires no application integration and can be deployed very quickly as a SaaS solution, in both the data center and the cloud.

While attacks cost enterprises millions of dollars in fraud, loss of revenue, brand damage, and so much more, Cequence’s differentiated approach to application security provides verified results trusted globally.

If you are committed to global security, aspire to collaborate with a dedicated and driven team, and seek to contribute to the advancement of a thriving organization, we want to hear from you.
