What is Security Architecture?

Security architecture is a unified security design that addresses the necessities and potential risks involved in a certain scenario or environment. It also specifies when and where to apply security controls. The design process is generally reproducible.

In the last decade security has become more important than processes, technologies or even applications. Poor security means results can fail to external threats and data might be leaked. Indeed, security architecture helps manage all information assets for easier governance and safe operations.

Security defines boundaries that architects should not breach or take into consideration when developing new solutions or choosing a new vendor. Ultimately, extended enterprise architecture is not possible without assessing the risks of outsourcing work and what controls can be put in place to achieve efficient management of these ventures.


Key iServer Benefits

  • Preconfigured solutions with SABSA, COBIT and ISO
  • Flexible metamodel that adapts iServer’s environment to any security architecture requirements
  • Portal for communicating governance procedures, security policies, and risk catalogs to anyone in the organization
  • Workflow notifications for changes in the Architecture Repository
  • Shared repository for connecting processes, technologies, applications with risks and controls
  • Publish reports in Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF and share them instantly

iServer Repository

The iServer repository provides a flexible structure for storing and sharing all EA related information. It provides a number of key features for security architecture, including role-based permission for creating, deleting and modifying any content. Furthermore, it includes the ability to generate catalogs and matrices with specific filters at any time.

Architects are able to reuse existing information when modeling Visio or when they need to generate reports for interested stakeholders. The repository also enables information to be exported in Excel, Word and PDF for governance reviews.

Risk and Control Inventories

Catalog all Risks and Controls with the iServer View functionality. Detailed filters can be applied to determine which controls are being used for different risks and how they are applied. This information can be reused in Visio to graphically communicate this to the wider enterprise audience via Portal.

Out-of-the-Box Visio Templates


Security guidelines can be developed through Word templates and updated automatically through the iServer Live Document functionality.

Guidelines will be available for everyone to read or export via the Portal and can be linked to specific solutions, projects, and even applications for better governance.

Context Diagrams

Context Diagrams

Context diagrams are high level descriptions of the current operational flow of an organization. Adding a security layer at this stage provides great value to stakeholders in understanding the critical areas of the enterprise. The entire inventory can be modelled in Visio or reused in existing context diagrams to speed up the process.

Architects can subsequently publish Visio diagrams or use reporting services to generate Word, PPT, or PDF outputs for the organization.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Highly Customisable yet Intuitive EA Platform

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market. The reason for our wishing to implement iServer was twofold, firstly to maintain and track a detailed model of our product and secondly to allow us to implement a TOGAF based architecture function.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
