Modern organizations have large sets of policies to comply with. Yet, they have no formalized way to translate them into operational activities. They also lack mechanisms to track compliance to security standards in varying software stacks, leaving them exposed.
Risk Assessments & Threat ModelingManual processes are expensive and slow, and they require hard-to-find subject matter experts. The outputs are inconsistent and rarely include compliance requirements.
ComplianceOrganizations are unable to continuously monitor whether all relevant processes are being followed for a given software stack & type. This creates a defensibility gap, a problem in the case of a breach.
Secure DevelopmentStatic requirements and guidelines for development and QA are non-auditable and quickly become out-of-date. This makes them difficult to maintain, and it makes it hard to determine what is applicable for a given application.
TrainingOne-time, up-front courses are difficult to retain and use in daily activities. It is also difficult to deliver relevant education across all software stacks and types, given the increasing number of security & compliance requirements.
An automated system that tracks security standards and translates them into actionable tasks across various software stacks.SD Elements Builds Security In and Enables Continuous Compliance Throughout the Software Lifecycle. Here are key use cases:
