Firewall Security Assessment

Assess your firewall configuration against vendor best practices

Improsec provides an independent analysis and assessment of the current level of security for a firewall deployed or to-be deployed in an organization. The assessment provides the security management and IT organization with an overview of the basic security controls implemented compared to vendor best practices, as well as a snapshot of the general level of security.

Value

  • Assess your firewall configuration against vendor best practices

  • Identify unintentional network access from the Internet or other insecure networks

  • Discover insecure network architecture design

  • Assessment of administrative processes

  • Tangible recommendations ready to implement and use operationally

Product

The deliverable of the analysis is a written report containing the following:

  • A non-technical section with an Executive Summary for management and decision makers

  • A technical section including detailed observations and tangible recommendations to improve the security posture of the firewall

Method

Our firewall security assessment is, among other recognized resources, based upon configuration and hardening recommendations by vendors and renowned institutes such as Cisco, Fortinet, SANS and NIST, combined with our own professional experience and expertise.

The analysis and assessment are performed on a configuration extract from your firewall(s). The configuration extract is analysed using automated and manual processing methods in order to identify misconfigurations, unintended access between network zones and insecure management processes.

Involvement

The delivery requires minimal involvement of your technical staff.
