Obtain Authority to Operate (ATO) faster and deliver secure software at scale.

Discover how SD Elements can accelerate your ATO processes and streamline DevSecOps adoption.


Do you think your ATO process is time-consuming and expensive?

Remediating security vulnerabilities is vital, but this can be costly, reactive, and cause delays in software delivery.


How can you obtain ATO faster, while still ensuring software built for the U.S. Federal Government meets security standards?

SD Elements helps your developers proactively build secure software at scale.

Identify Requirements Quickly

With SD Elements, your team can automatically generate security controls in line with standards, such as NIST.

Improve Developer Productivity

Streamline your developers’ workflow by assigning them only the tasks that are relevant to them. SD Elements delivers the required security controls to your team through integrations with issue trackers like Jira.

Avoid Expensive Remediation

Enable your developers to implement secure coding best practices from the start. Actionable requirements and just-in-time training with SD Elements mean developers will not need to spend time patching vulnerabilities.

Demonstrate Compliance

SD Elements helps you with compliance by automatically creating artifacts to show that implemented controls meet security requirements, such as NIST RMF, NIST SP 800-53R5, FedRAMP, CMMC, and CNSSI.

Integrate Seamlessly

Integrate SD Elements with your existing toolkit, from issue tracking software to Governance, Risk, and Compliance tools. You can also use open APIs for maximum flexibility when building out your DevOps toolchain.

Scale Predictably

Using SD Elements, you can quickly scale and implement secure coding best practices across your entire application portfolio. This means your software factory can benefit from enhanced security in a much shorter span of time.

How does SD Elements help organizations obtain ATO faster?

Step 1: Information Gathering

SD Elements uses a brief survey to understand your applications’ architecture, behavior, technology stack — in minutes.

This consolidates all inputs in a fraction of the time, replacing weeks of whiteboarding and interviews across teams.

Step 2: Expert Assessment

SD Elements automatically selects applicable U.S. Federal Government requirements based on the information gathered.

Step 3: Recommendations

SD Elements recommends security controls from an extensive content library that is built, managed, and kept up to date by security experts and tailored to the specific needs of your project.

Requirements, just-in-time training, code samples, and test cases are delivered straight to developers through integrations with the tools they use.

Step 4: Validation and Reports

Integrations with testing platforms, such as Veracode, Checkmarx, or Fortify, enables SD Elements to track the status of security control implementation.

Detailed reports show authorizing officials that you have implemented the security and privacy controls required for ATO.
