Understand More with a Threat Tree

Understand more about threats with automatic threat tree building

Build Each Threat Tree Automatically

One of the biggest challenges of information security is the output of security exercises in the form of wordy reports. For stakeholders these are not very easy to read and often seem to be delivered in the form of lists without demonstrating a system or application at a high level. Threat models in themselves take a hybrid approach of being system and asset centric in the visualization where a viewer sees the system of interconnected components.

Threat Tree with branches

ThreatModeler goes a step further. Using the threat model as a source, the Intelligent Threat Engine builds a tree diagram as seen in the figure above that we define as a threat tree. Each threat tree displays a logical, hierarchical representation of a threat and the relation to the underlying attributes of the application or system. Additionally, multiple threat trees, each representing the individual components of an application merged into a single entity, provide a consolidated view of threats to the whole application. This illustrates why a threat exists in the system and the relevant security controls to mitigate those threats.

Still have questions about Threat Trees?

With Threat Trees, you’re able to:

Rapid Visualization

Enables the rapid visualization of individual components in conjunction with all the potential threats and their relevant security controls that should be applied to the component to prevent or mitigate the threat.

Attack Paths and Vectors

Ensures a full understanding of all the attack vectors and the attack path needed for an attacker to succeed.

Security Controls

Assists in determining the adequacy of existing security controls against threats.

Map Security Policies to actions

Provides the ability to map security policies and actions to application components and the courses of mitigation that are available.
