Scio Security looks to hire mobile web developers

Scio Security is beginning to hire as the IT-security startup gets ready to formally launch its first product.

"We're gearing up for our public launch," says Dug Song, co-founder of Scio Security. "We'd like to launch by the end of the year."

The Ann Arbor-based firm focuses on providing new Internet security solutions for sensitive data, such as health-care information and financial transactions. Hackers have recently focused efforts on shadowing users or stealing their passwords and other security information to access financial data. Scio Security is creating a variety of solutions, some patent pending. For example, part of the new technology that is not patent pending features an immediate call back to confirm the correct person is trying to access information.

Bank of Ann Arbor issued a warning early this year about cyber criminals engaging in corporate account takeover. That is when "cyber-thieves gain control of a business' bank account by stealing the business' valid online banking credentials. Although there are several methods being employed to steal credentials, the most prevalent involves malware that infects a business' computer workstations and laptops. A business can become infected with malware via infected documents attached to an e-mail or a link contained within an e-mail that connects to an infected web site," the bank said in a public statement.

Scio Security, nearly 1-year-old, is tackling this problem and others like it from the Tech Brewery with a team of six people. It is looking for two mobile/web developers. For more information on those openings, click here. "It could be more," Song says.

Scio Security landed $1 million in venture capital earlier this year. That money came from Silicon Valley-based True Ventures, which led the initial round of fundraising, and
Resonant Venture Partners, a new venture capital firm in Ann Arbor.
