Firewall assessment

With a firewall assessment, you can have your network devices checked for potential vulnerabilities and risks and receive recommendations for corrective action.

Who is it suitable for?

Are you unsure whether your network environment is completely secure, functional and optimally designed to meet your needs? During our firewall assessment, we carefully examine your infrastructure over the course of three days. By preparing a final report, we demonstrate where potential vulnerabilities lie and how you can eliminate them. We would be delighted to draw up a custom quote based on your needs. 



A firewall assessment conducted by Swiss IT Security’s specialists offers you the following benefits 

Vulnerability awareness

After the assessment, you will be aware of the vulnerabilities in your network infrastructure.

Financial transparency

The assessment is limited to three days, so you can clearly estimate the costs in advance.


You know what actions to take to eliminate your vulnerabilities

Time required

The assessment is designed for a firewall or firewall cluster. A dedicated report is prepared for environments with multiple firewalls/clusters.  This means that the time required also increases linearly. 
  • One day for preparatory work 
  • One day for the technical assessment 
  • One day for post-processing/preparing the report
