Policy to Execution Platform

SD Elements is an expert system that translates policies and regulations into actionable tasks for technical teams.

Build security and privacy into your software at scale, systematically tailored to your business needs.

Business Challenges

Challenge 1: Shortage of security professionals prevents proper security reviews/risk assessments

Challenge 2: Automating the translation of security requirements into actionable tasks

Challenge 3: Reducing remediation costs related to pen tests/scanner findings and associated delay in release dates

Many organizations are leveraging scanners to address these challenges. Unfortunately, 46% of software flaws are not caught by scanners. Additionally, this approach does not address the reduction of remediation costs.

Problem: The Policy to Execution Gap

Modern organizations have large sets of policies to comply with. Yet, they have no formalized way to translate them into operational activities. This is known as the policy-to-execution gap. How can organizations streamline the process of converting policies into actionable tasks for technical teams?

Introducing Our Solution: SD Elements

A Platform that Considers Security Throughout the Software Development Lifecycle

SD Elements builds security controls into the software from the beginning of the software development lifecycles–and throughout–, thus preventing security defects and regulatory non-compliance. This saves your software teams from having to catch and eliminate such issues after the fact.

Our platform automatically generates actionable tasks, sample code, and sample test plans that can be readily used by development teams to code securely, thus substantially reducing remediation costs. The expert system can also be leveraged to automate threat modeling and threat risk assessments, significantly expediting the process.

Just-In-Time Training

Direct Application

Allows developers to learn about something as they are doing it. Developers can apply what they’ve learned directly to a work task, which helps to facilitate learning.

JIRA Integration

Developers can access and consume security training relevant to the task they are currently working on, using the tools they already have, like JIRA or other Application Lifecycle Management tools.

Learning Fundemental Concepts

Developers can learn the deeper concepts behind security practices and compliance standards, rather than just executing on security-related tasks.
