About ThreatModeler®

The Evolution of Threat Modeling

Like everything else in technology, threat modeling continues to evolve. What started out as engineers doing ad hoc threat modeling, evolved into data flow diagrams built by security experts. And that worked for a while, but it has its limitations. It’s time intensive to manually identify threats and mitigations, and it offers no integration into the software development lifecycle. But worst of all, it’s unscalable.

For threat modeling to be scalable, it can’t be held hostage by security experts. The future of threat modeling is a self-service model where developers do their own threat modeling. But, develops are generally not security experts. So, what’s the answer?

Threat Modeling for the Modern World

Imagine a threat model that is more representative of today’s complex architectures. One that depicts how a hacker moves through your system, identifying where they’ll attack, and more importantly, what controls are required to mitigate it.

Now imagine if your developers could use this threat modeling tool in-house, with little to no security expertise, little to no learning curve and without the needleless expense of an outside security consultant.

How is that possible? By using the same language and diagrams to model threats that developers already use. By making threat modeling just another step in the software development lifecycle.

Data flow diagrams don’t do a good job of modeling threats in modern system architectures. And hiring outside security consultants to create custom threat models doesn’t scale. The answer is ThreatModeler.

A Scalable Enterprise Threat Modeling Platform

ThreatModeler was created to address the shortcomings of data flow diagrams, bring threat modeling capabilities in-house and make it scalable. The vision for ThreatModeler is to be able to model ALL the threats, automatically, with no security expertise required. And we think we’ve done that.

Threat Modeling can do More Than you Think

ThreatModeler enables you to design in security from the start, in lock step with your DevOps workflow. And ThreatModeler can do more than you think. Here are just a few examples:

Automatically convert your diagrams into threat models—no data flow diagrams required

Automatically see all threats based on your threat model—no brainstorming required

Automatically update your threat model based on new threats without doing anything

Automatically generate cloud architecture diagrams simply by scanning your VPC


Integrate with ITSM (e.g., JIRA) to instantly turn a security requirement into a service ticket
