Threat Assessment & Modelling
Threat modelling is a process for optimizing security by identifying objectives and vulnerabilities, before the system is in place, and then defining countermeasures to prevent, or mitigate the effects of, threats to the system.
Our threat modelling service helps identify over 75 percent of major security design flaws, reduces the scope of security code reviews to only those lines and components that matter, narrows and guides the focus of penetration tests, and minimizes the need for expensive code rewrites when problems are discovered.
When leveraged early in the lifecycle of an application, threat modeling can uncover vulnerabilities in a design approach before a single line of code has been written. When utilized later in an application's lifecycle, threat modeling can quickly decompose a living application to identify architectural and design flaws that can be verified during code reviews and penetration testing.
