To avoid security weaknesses, each phase of your software development process must include the appropriate security analysis, defenses, and countermeasures to avoid vulnerabilities or security holes that hackers could exploit.

However, the security expertise needed to solve these issues can be hard to find. Manual processes for documenting and verifying security requirements are still widespread. Consistent implementation of security controls across dozens, or even hundreds, of projects isa daunting challenge. Software vulnerabilities are found far too late in the release cycle. Their remediation can be expensive and time-consuming, delaying software release, and ultimately impacting your bottom line.


SD Elements helps you ensure software security is included from the very beginning of software development, enabling you to deliver more secure, compliant software faster.

Avoid Expensive Remediation

Deliver secure software instead of having to fix security holes after release. Shift your coders to secure development practices from the start by providing actionable requirements, secure coding guidelines, and highly relevant, just-in-time training.
SD Elements Technology Industries

Validate Compliance

Know the status of security activities at any point during the project life cycle. Get a clear view of your corporate risk and compliance posture at any time, and be audit and assessment ready by letting SD Elements help you demonstrate compliance.
SD Elements Technology Industries

Integrate Seamlessly

Leverage integrations with leading tools for issue tracking, security testing (SAST/DAST), Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD), and Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC). Utilize Open APIs and SDKs for maximum flexibility when building out DevOps toolchains.

How does SD Elements work?

Step 1: Information Gathering

Enter critical information about your technology stack, compliance requirements, and deployment environment, to paint a clear picture of your current security posture. Even with limited details about your application, the platform’s built-in logic helps you prioritize and understand your next steps, and will refine its guidance as more information becomes available.

Step 2: Developer-Centric Threat Modeling

SD Elements gathers information about your project and automatically generates threat modeling diagrams. By automating the generation of developer-centric software threat models, developers are able to efficiently identify threats and know exactly where to implement required countermeasures.

Step 3: Expert Assessment

An advanced decision-making engine automatically identifies design-level weaknesses. It assigns a risk status, drawn from your existing security and compliance policies, which helps you and your teams identify the most critical weaknesses, so you can prioritize strategically.

Step 4: Recommendations

Requirements are turned into recommendations and controls. These trackable tasks can be easily integrated with systems you already use, like Azure Boards, VersionOne, or Jira.   The regularly updated content library also offers thousands of recommendations, mapped to regulatory standards from all over the world.

Step 5: Validation and Reports

Verify task completion through integrations with testing tools like Checkmarx, Fortify, and Veracode. In addition, attest to and demonstrate your compliance with status reports. Whether you view quick metrics or dive deeply into each project, your security experts can focus only on the most critical issues.
