New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
MyAppSecurity has announced that its flagship product, ThreatModeler™, the industry’s first automated threat modeling solution, is now available via a subscription service, with the introduction of its SaaS Private Cloud Offering (PCO).
While threat modeling has been around for many years and its value universally accepted, it has largely been a resource intensive, costly process, requiring subject matter experts to construct, document, and maintain threat models, while the threat landscape and applications are constantly changing. Because of these obstacles, the widespread adoption of threat modeling has been hindered.
With ThreatModeler™ SaaS PCO, MyAppSecurity removes these obstacles by delivering threat modeling as an ongoing service. From its Operations Center, MyAppSecurity’s threat modeling experts build, customize, and maintain customer-designated threat models, which frees up key security resources to focus on managing risk.
Unlike pure SaaS models where hardware and software reside at a co-lo facility, ThreatModeler™ software is installed on a virtual machine within the customer’s network in their hardened, secure environment, and a secure connection is established between MyAppSecurity’s Operations Center to the ThreatModeler™ software. Since threat-modeling data never leaves the customer network, organizations can apply their current security policy and controls to ThreatModeler™ to enforce and maintain their security standards.
Anurag Agarwal, founder and CEO of MyAppSecurity, says, “By subscribing to the ThreatModeler™ SaaS PCO, clients can leverage our threat modeling experts and technology platform as an extension of their own security team to build, customize, and maintain their threat models, which frees up key security resources to focus on the most critical aspect of threat modeling – managing risk. With the SaaS PCO model, we’re doing all the heavy lifting on behalf of the customer, so they’re able to concentrate on threat mitigation.”
Through ThreatModeler’s easy-to-understand dashboards and reports, threat data is presented in a format that is clear, concise, and actionable, so security teams can prioritize and manage risk across their application portfolio in the most efficient way possible. By enabling collaboration between all stakeholders, ThreatModeler’s framework also allows organizations to build secure applications from the ground up, saving valuable time, money, and resources associated with fixing vulnerabilities in production.
Headquartered in NYC, MyAppSecurity was founded in 2010 by Anurag Agarwal, who has nearly 20 years of experience in the security industry. Mr. Agarwal experienced firsthand the growing demands of organizations seeking a more proactive approach to building security into software. This led him to design, develop, and introduce ThreatModeler™, the industry’s first automated, repeatable threat modeling solution able to scale across an enterprise.
