Secure Architecture Review

Security Strategy and Collaboration

Defense to Avoid Letting an Attack Become a Compromise

Understand the full attack surface and risk model for your software architecture by analyzing the way its built, deployed, and maintained. We test your products and help you build a strategy that protects your software, infrastructure, and users with a resilient strategy.

Goals and Deliverables

Secure Architecture

The goals of an architecture review are to identify and highlight all security weaknesses in the design, the application, or cloud environment. These findings will be used to re-architect or implement compensating controls to ensure areas of weakness are addressed.

Review. Interview. Analyze.

nVisium will review application or cloud artifacts (design documentation and configurations) for architectural decisions, interview contributors for additional insights into architectural decisions, and document security weaknesses.

Assess Risks

Our team will help your organization properly assess the risks and posture of your organization. A comprehensive, prioritized list of potential exploits specific to your application or cloud will be analyzed against existing organizational processes and technical weaknesses. You will receive a list of security risks as well as guidance to resolve these issues.

Full Report

At the end of the Secure Architecture Review, nVisium will deliver a full report with the relevant discoveries, findings, and recommendations to improve security and data protection of the application or cloud environment.

Examination of

Application or Cloud

nVisium works with our clients to build secure software from the group up through our secure architecture reviews.  Manual reviews and interviews will be conducted to give the consultant a firm understanding of the application or cloud environment. At a minimum, client processes and configurations will be reviewed before making security recommendations. Other artifacts may be requested depending on identified strengths and weaknesses. nVisium will examine processes and configurations such as:

  • SDLC Style
  • Coding Practices
  • Testing Procedures
  • Code Promotion Process
  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Encryption
  • Web Servers
  • Application Servers
  • Database
  • Servers
  • Firewalls (Web, Network)

The intersection of Software and Security

nVisium integrates with your team’s existing development processes to help build a more robust software security program within your organization. Each member of our team has an extensive background in both software engineering and security.
