SWITCH operates the Swiss research and education network, a backbone with more than a quarter of a million active devices, as well as the Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure for .ch and .li. It also supports companies in the Swiss financial industry in fighting attacks on their assets.
This unique combination of activities allows SWITCH-CERT, the Computer Emergency Response Team operated by SWITCH, a head start in protecting its customers. Its expert knowledge and huge international partner network gives it the ability to act before problems escalate.
SWITCH-CERT currently protects members of the Swiss academic community, holders of .ch and .li domains, Swiss banks and, by its very nature, the entire Swiss Internet community.
