Mitigate Risk – ThreatModeler™ Benefits for Key Stakeholders

Executives / CISOs

With ThreatModeler™, you are able to:

  • Meet application security policy objectives by adopting a scalable, repeatable, collaborative, and automated process organization-wide to promote consistency, enforce security requirements, and mitigate risk overall.
  • Map application security policies to security requirements to drive, track, and measure security initiatives using dashboards, reports, trends, and checklists.
  • Integrate with real-world threat intelligence to clarify application risk and communicate the potential business impact to executive management should a security breach occur.
  • Calculate costs and prioritize mitigation efforts based upon risk rankings, threat intelligence, reports, dashboards, and metrics to align mitigation strategy with budget allocation.

Mitigate Risk and Threats - Vulnerability Trends graphDirectors / Managers

With ThreatModeler™, you are able to:

  • Adopt a scalable, repeatable, threat modeling process that integrates with existing workflows and enables collaboration between all stakeholders.
  • Leverage dashboards, reports, trends, and checklists to view threats and validate proper security controls are in place.
  • Produce a measurable ROI by employing a framework to develop secure applications from the ground up, reducing the cost of fixing production vulnerabilities.
  • Enforce consistency by linking pre-defined, security requirements to all re-usable application and system components across the enterprise.

Security Architects / Security Analysts

With ThreatModeler™, you are able to:

  • Leverage an automated, scalable, and repeatable, threat-modeling framework that integrates with existing workflows and processes.
  • Assess the effectiveness of security controls and hardening guidelines, to meet application security policy requirements and mitigate risk.
