The quest for more secure networks
Improved network security through applied networking and security research
SI6 Networks offers information security and network engineering services, which include network design and deployment, network security assessment, and vulnerability analysis.
We believe that the highest possible standards can only be achieved by means of a thorough understanding and a close involvement in each of the steps that lead from the design and specification of a communications technology, to its eventual deployment for a production service.
We become involved early on in the design and standards development process, to avoid design flaws. We provide consulting services to networking vendors such that possible design and implementation flaws in networking devices can be mitigated as early in the production process as possible. Finally, we provide consulting services to organizations, so that even in the presence of vulnerable devices, their security implications are mitigated.
Application Security TestingApplication Security Testing focuses on identifying application and configuration vulnerabilities that could lead to security issues. The goal of the review is to identify as many potential security vulnerabilities as possible, before attackers do.
