Please tell me what kind of roles can one expect to get in security by only knowing java ?

I heard that security needs knowledge of Assembly , C, C++ , python etc and NOT just java because it is "secure" . So where do PURE java folks fit into the security industry ? (i guess they probably make jsp pages , GUI and things like that and dont do work directly related to security)

Any info on this is welcome.

SCJP 6. Learning more now.
