A secure application starts with its architecture design. IOActive offers specialist advice on the software elements you use to mitigate the risks presented by an ever-growing range of attack vectors and tools. IOActive’s architecture reviews identify the strengths and weaknesses of your application based on its design, implemented components, system deployment configuration, and security controls.
Following an initial consultation, we proceed to identify flaws or ambiguities in your application’s architecture design that could be exploited by inquisitive users, competitors, or malicious attackers. We work in collaboration with you and your product management or senior engineering teams to provide clear and concise security advice that you can use to quickly eliminate or mitigate threats.
IOActive works with you to inject security considerations and guidance throughout the architecture design phase. Most security architecture is comprised of discrete, single-purpose components. These elements must interface with the business systems in a balanced and cost-effective way. We’ve learned the best approach is to implement security-specific functions as early as possible in the development cycle to avoid costly rework or project delays.
We work with your architects and provide expertise in the following areas:
