Security Compass Named Grand Trophy Winner in 2020 ISPG Global Excellence Awards

SD Elements platform recognized in five award categories for success in application security and innovation in compliance

Toronto – March 9, 2020 – Security Compass, a software security company that provides organizations with technology to balance secure software development with the speed of software delivery, today announced that SD Elements was named the winner of five Info Security Products Guide (ISPG) 2020 Global Excellence Awards. Security Compass was also one of only 12 companies to be named a Grand Trophy award winner. This year’s ISPG award submissions were judged by more than 35 industry experts from across the world, representing a wide range of industries, to recognize the innovative solutions that are raising the standards of cybersecurity products and services.

The SD Elements platform, which helps enterprise organizations anticipate and eliminate potential threats and known vulnerabilities at the beginning of software development lifecycle, was recognized for the following ISPG award categories: Gold for Compliance and Vulnerability Management; Gold for Threat Modeling; Silver for Most Innovative Compliance Solution; Silver for Application Security and Testing; and Silver for IT Governance, Risk and Compliance.

“Today, business leaders have two bad choices. One option is to be “fast and risky” – build software and employ a set of reactive processes like security testing, audits, scanning and infrastructure hardening to find and fix security, privacy and compliance issues. The other option is to employ proactive processes, or the “slow and safe” option – using scarce experts to run manually intensive processes like threat modeling, risk assessments and privacy by design. Security Compass give companies a third option – “fast and safe”. We do this by automating the generalized steps of the expert-driven processes using our web-based platform, SD Elements,” says Rohit Sethi, CEO of Security Compass. “Similar to how a GPS application knows where a driver is, and at the right moment provides instructions, SD Elements acts like a guide through every step of software development and delivers security and compliance instructions for each part of the work. We thank ISPG for this award recognition, which we feel speaks volumes to the versatility of the SD Elements platform.”

Application development teams are moving faster than ever to bring products to market, and as a result, important security measures are often skipped. By leveraging automation to balance development between “fast and risky” and “slow and safe”, Security Compass enables companies to build products nearly as fast as if they were developed without any security or compliance – yet inclusive of critical security measures.
