Put our architects to work for you

Architecture Security Assessment Services

The best way to reduce your application's attack surface is to assess it all. We put yours under the microscope illuminating critical flaws and systemic improvements that enhance existing security controls and harden defenses against modern threats.

Architecture Security Assessment

Uncover systemic security issues in your application environments.

Our Architecture Security Assessment (ASA) is a non-disruptive review of the application architecture to uncover systemic security issues within your app environment. An ASA can help you maximize your return on security technology investments, in addition to validating the security of your existing applications. Our ASA methodology follows the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS), as well as any specific organizational regulatory requirements you need to meet (e.g., PCI-DSS, NIST, or HIPAA).

Our ASA service can be combined with any of our other services to add coverage depth or deeper analysis where required.

Architecture Security Assessment highlights:

  • Broad and deep analysis: We conduct a thirteen-point methodology covering the full spectrum of an application's security architecture including authentication, access control, input and output, cryptographic components, error logging and auditing, data protection and privacy, communication, malicious software, business logic, secure file upload, and configuration.
  • Flexible assessment types: We extend our thirteen-point methodology to address the security of interconnected devices including e-commerce web applications, IoT devices, physical products, or other unique situations.
  • Actionable Findings: We take the time to ensure technical and business stakeholders understand engagement findings with prescriptive guidance that ultimately helps you harden defenses and extract greater value from existing security investments.

Identify Systemic Vulnerabilities

Conducting an ASA can uncover the root cause of vulnerabilities before attackers do. Because we inspect every facet of an application's security and underlying infrastructure – you can proactively address gaps in controls and systemic risks before attackers even know they exist.

Realize the Full Potential of Investments

Most security controls fail to reach their adversary stopping potential. Rather than adding more complexity to your environment, our ASA helps you do more with less, identifying opportunities to enhance the efficacy of security controls that can improve resiliency with little to no resource drain.
