Question: Is SD Elements only valuable for new applications?
Answer:

Many of our clients model 95% of their pre-existing applications in SD Elements.

Question: Will my developers want to use/log into SD Elements?
Answer:

What if they did not know you were using SDE? The product is designed to be used within their ALM environment to avoid your dev team having to learn another tool.

Question: Does SD Elements work well for agile?
Answer:

It actually does and in many cases our clients used SD Elements to remove security barriers to adopting agile since SDE is very lightweight.

Question: How does SD Elements compare to a scanner or something that verifies vulnerabilities?
Answer:

We help you become more efficient by eliminating the security issues before you start scanning. If you combined all scanning tools they only cover 50% of what we recommend, so using our product gives you a more complete effort and turns the scanners into validation tools

Question: Is SD Elements better than static secure coding guidelines?
Answer:

Our product is dynamic. It allows you to insert non-functional requirements into the dev stream. As new threats or compliance issues arise, we update the product for you and push them right into the process. Developers are much more likely to use the product as opposed to reading static documents
