Compliance is an ongoing challenge: SD Elements automatically builds in and enables compliance throughout the software lifecycle
Organizations need to comply with existing and new complex regulatory standards such as NIST RMF, HIPAA, and FedRAMP, and large sets of internal policies. Yet, your organization has no consistent and actionable way to translate all these into operational activities. Your teams also struggle to continuously monitor all relevant compliance processes for a given software stack, making audits difficult. Identifying threats and remediating security vulnerabilities is already a difficult process, but proving compliance with regulatory standards brings a new set of challenges.
SD Elements automatically translates external regulations and internal policies or controls into actionable and auditable tasks
SD Elements enables and simplifies compliance by providing software development teams with continuous visibility to and traceability of adherence to regulatory standards and internal policies. It captures regulatory requirements for each project and translates them into actionable and auditable tasks that development teams can implement. Embedded within SD Elements is Just-in-Time Training, short training modules that provide contextual learning that developers can apply directly to a work task. Integrations with issue trackers and testing solutions allows organizations to assign and track each task for completion with near real-time auditability.
Achieving Rapid or Continuous ATO (cATO)
SD Elements helps your organization manage your authorization to operate (ATO) process by supporting all three ATO pathways – RMF Now, Fast Track ATO and Ongoing Authorization or Continuous ATO (cATO). It shifts ATO certification left by building security and compliance into all stages of software development life cycle. SD Elements helps automate ATO requirement generation by removing non-applicable items automatically and translating ATO control objectives into actionable or prescriptive tasks for developers.
