Our security test ensures that the firewall configuration and
rules meet the company's business and compliance needs.
Every business, regardless of size, uses firewall technology
to establish limits of trust and security and access the
internet for inter-business communication.
Next-generation firewalls provide increasing complexity, and
functionality requires you to manage firewalls appropriately.
The list of regulations will be thoroughly investigated
following the operational assessment and based on the level of
trust needed from the security apparatus.
A weak/outdated firewall may have made the target systems
vulnerable to information disclosure, exploiting the
Our approach to Firewall Security Assessment
Identification of the target environment, including the
network topology, the number and type of firewalls, and the
followed standards, must be compatible. The discovery process
identifies critical assets within a system that should be
protected with the strictest security controls possible.
A thorough examination conducted of existing rules which the
client has implemented, define rules justification is noted
against the business requirement.
Firewall Rules Review
The rules for whitelisting services, IP addresses, and port
numbers are reviewed.
Security Configuration Assessment
Authorization, logging/alerting, firmware patching, and
administrative access are all examples of security
configurations that need to be examined.
Once the assessment is complete, a detailed written report
outlining each observed and or exploited vulnerabilities,
along with the root cause analysis and categorisation along
with mitigation and confirmatory re-test certificate if the
What really makes us stand apart is our excellent and round

Firewall Security Assessment?
For most organisations that do not use a multi-layer of
security, a firewall device acts as the gatekeeper to the
network and is often the first and last line of defence.
The Firewall is a device that sits between the inside and
outside of your network and regulates who can enter and exit
A firewall that is incorrectly configured or has a software
vulnerability due to a lack of patching can significantly
impact your organisation’s security posture and allow a
complete hacker access to the network.
HackersEra's firewall audit identifies weak protocols,
insecure rules, and additional data leakages that could
jeopardise the firewall's infrastructure. Our team of
cybersecurity experts has experience building firewalls from
the ground up as well as implementing technology from a
variety of leading firewall vendors. This allows us to see
everything from both the attacker's and the defender's point
of view. It enables us to conduct some of the most difficult
and thorough assessments in our industry.
