ThreatModeler Automates Threat Modeling Activity

ThreatModeler is powered by its Threat Intelligence Framework, which contains detailed threat content – including security requirements – from leading, authoritative resources.

With the level of cybercrime threats increasing, many businesses are taking steps to boost their cybersecurity. One process that helps to inform organizations about their security posture is threat modeling. The process involves visualizing an IT infrastructure to understand the potential threats that can make it susceptible to a data breach.

However, depending on the tool selected, companies may not always get accurate solutions that identify all of the threats within their IT environment. Uniquely positioned to empower organizations to accurately visualize their attack surface, ThreatModeler has the technological capacity to generate complete threat model diagrams, including the security requirements, steps for mitigation and validation proof so all organizations can ensure that their infrastructure is cyber secure.

Founded in 2010, ThreatModeler facilitates the cybersecurity of Fortune 500 organizations by emboldening their teams to identify threats and communicate security and compliance standards seamlessly. Using ThreatModeler, security architects, developers, and CISOs can understand the nature of attack vectors and make security decisions that proactively protects their IT environment. ThreatModeler is powered by its Threat Intelligence Framework, which contains detailed threat content – including security requirements – from leading, authoritative resources.

ThreatModeler emboldens DevOps to think like a hacker and accurately pinpoint how attackers can move from the entry point to the targeted asset – all visualized within a process flow diagram. “Our platform provides a collaborative approach to threat modeling, and we follow an approach that uses detailed, UML that enables you to visualize the design of a system. This includes the respective components and communication flow of data between those components,” says Archie Agarwal, founder and CEO of ThreatModeler. When he was done evaluating threat modeling solutions, he said, “Without automation, threat modeling outputs are just static documents.”

For many, it is helpful to virtualize every aspect of the development of technology and implementation of cybersecurity, which are ThreatModeler’s strongsuits. The platform can secure web and mobile applications, IT infrastructure and hardware devices.

With ThreatModeler, companies can easily generate lists of threats and build threat models that suit their IT stack with drag and drop ease. However, ThreatModeler does not only automate threat modeling, but also optimizes network security.

ThreatModeler unique technological capabilities enables you to classify threats based on the level of risks, predict outcomes in the event of cyberattacks and prioritize mitigations based on risk appetite – an organization’s calculated level of accepted risk. As a result, both security architects and developers alike can gain a full understanding of the threats that matter to their infrastructure and determine ways to prevent them.

Despite known shortcomings of traditional threat modeling – with its manual, ad hoc approach – ThreatModeler has taken the important process to the forefront of cybersecurity. The platform simplifies the process with a direct CI /CD integration, which includes IT ticketing solution Jira. ThreatModeler scales the communication of prioritized security and compliance requirements to various stakeholders across the organization, in the language all DevOps can speak: Process Flow Diagrams, informing and empowering secure decision making across all teams. Ince threat modeling is implemented by organizations to expose cybercrime continuously, ThreatModeler has driven successful Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) initiatives.

ThreatModeler received accolades for four years consecutively, with their products and services speaking volumes and garnering substantial credibility. Awards include Cyber Defense Magazine’s InfoSec Awards in 2018 and 2019; and Cybersecurity Excellence Awards from 2017-2020. Earlier this year, ThreatModeler was shortlisted as one of the Top Cyber Security Companies by CIO Applications Magazine. The company received critical mention in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Application Security in 2017.
