Build A Future-Proof Threat Model

Secure Applications from the Start

Bishop Fox's Threat Modeling lays a strong foundation for sustainable, secure application development. Our battle-tested experts work directly with key stakeholders across your organization, taking the time to understand security objectives and DevOps processes that are critical to proactively addressing security issues. Applying the gold standard in threat modeling frameworks, our experts deconstruct each stage of your design process, highlighting key processes and dataflows that crossover into predefined trust boundaries. We also bring threat intelligence from thousands of offensive application engagements to identify weaknesses in the design process and illuminate how and where attackers could take advantage in real-world attack scenarios. Ultimately, your Threat Model will harmonize security objectives and DevOps processes – enabling you to proactively address security issues without impacting agility and speed.

Synchronize DevOps and Security Objectives

Sustainable Secure Application Development

Our Threat Modeling engagement covers the full spectrum of application security. As a result, we can deliver critical insights into tactical and strategic mitigations that become foundational to the software development life cycle.
