About Arco

We are a boutique IT Security consultancy firm with a small but growing team that aligns our services to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

We mainly support companies in the Zurich region, and help our clients identify their current security strengths and weaknesses by performing IT Security Assessments.

Our team of dedicated professionals assists clients to improve their protection against cyber-attacks by developing their Cyber Defense Strategy. We support them in the detection of attacks, and we are there if they need help in recovering from incidents.

Our History

Beginning as Aristo Consulting GmbH in April 2013, we have always focused on improving clients’ technical and cyber interfacing. Our Zurich-based company has recently expanded in order to help our clients address today’s increased need to manage cyber risks. Our team moved to a larger facility in 2019 to support our growing business.
