Network Infrastructure Security Assessment (NISA)

Beyond and in addition to network-based testing, this assessment utilizes network design reviews, benchmarking and analysis of the configurations of firewalls, routers, switches, and other networking devices to ensure these systems are set-up to best protect the networks and communications they enable and that they themselves are also protected against threats to prevent being used for attack propagation. The assessment also ensures that the return on investment of the cost of this equipment is maximized from a security standpoint by verifying that all available and effective security features have been implemented.
