Large scale cyberattacks and breaches have become more common as the vast majority of global enterprises rely heavily on the internet to manage and grow all facets of their business. ThreatModeler is one firm dedicated to enabling organizations to be as proactive as possible in protecting their infrastructure. In order to consistently stay ahead of the curve and ensure cyber criminals are unable to gain access to sensitive data, leading companies are turning to threat modeling.

ThreatModeler empowers firms at any stage of their technology development journey – on-premise application security, first time adopters and mature users of the cloud. Specifically for the cloud, ThreatModeler has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer their automated threat modeling platform to cloud consumers, providing full visibility into their attack surface. Users can now identify threats associated with their workload architecture based on the services configuration in their AWS stack, and generate the necessary steps for security and risk mitigation.

ThreatModeler’s automated processes stand out from many other threat modeling tools.  With the unique ability to attribute threats to security architecture via real-time integration directly into the CI/CD pipeline, DevOps can now automatically build cloud security into the design phase.  Teams can then scale up the communication of prioritized security and compliance requirements across various stakeholders. The platform also allows them to send approval touchpoints of finished threat models directly to the relevant stakeholders for sign off.

Security team effortsare reduced drasticallyby ensuring that threat models adapt automatically each time changes are made to the AWS environment; generating threats and relevant security controls. As a result, threat modeling becomes a sustainable part of the development process that can evolve with the infrastructure.

How Threat Modeling Helps Enterprises

ThreatModeler possesses the functionality and foundation to facilitate the building of secure apps that AWS cloud architects require. Cloud architects with little threat modeling know-how can build a diagram in under an hour, out-of-the-box. For security architects, creating threat models is simple since the ThreatModeler learning curve is rapid. Because security architects no longer need to devote the majority of their time to communicating security requirements, they can focus on their primary role of executing secure product rollouts, maximizing throughput and workforce efficiency.

With reporting, CISOs can help C-Suite colleagues to understand their holistic security posture, allowing the organization to confidently make data driven business decisions that scale the infrastructure for growth.

Taking a proactive approach is best, and it will ensure that companies can adequately protect the data they have and use for daily transactions. Equifax, Facebook, and Snap are just some of the companies that have suffered data breaches in recent times. If these giants can be protected, other companies can be too. ThreatModeler is leading the industry in ensuring global enterprises initiate and maintain necessary safeguards to protect against a breach; as is evident from its multiple awards. ThreatModeler was recently recognized by the Cyber Security Excellence Awards (fourth consecutive year, 2017-2020). ThreatModeler is headed by CEO Archie Agarwal and headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey.
