A new version of the Threats Manager has been just released. It addresses some bugs and introduces some usage improvements.

The big surprise I hinted at the end of my Restarting article is out!

It is a new tool, which complements the workflow of Microsoft Threat Modeling Tool 2016, by providing features specifically designed to optimize the Mitigation experience.

The improvements in efficiency can be really huge, depending on the complexity of the model (the higher the better!), on the template and on the maturity of the organization: an estimation done with the standard template implies the possibility to optimize for 60% or more!

I have done everything I could to provide you with the best possible solution, given my limited resources: this is a project I have developed in my spare time. So, please, any costructive feedback would be much appreciated.

The details have been collected in a specific page, called The Threats Manager Tool, which can be accessed also from the menu at the top of my Blog site.

And the best thing is… that it is entirely free!

Enjoy!
