Working at Finite State

Hiring in:

The rise of IoT requires a new approach to cyber security. Finite State's platform detects IoT threats to networks to proactively mitigate risk.

We recognize that supply chain security is the #1 problem in cyber security today. Global software supply chains are opaque and complicated, involving countless developers, vendors, and components. Malicious actors exploit supply chain vulnerabilities to gain access to the networks that power our critical infrastructure and can carry out potentially devastating attacks.

Finite State defends these critical devices, networks, and supply chains by leveraging massive data analysis to provide transparency to device manufacturers and their customers – enabling them to understand and mitigate their risks before they are compromised.
