Step 1: Information Gathering
SD Elements gathers vital details about your technology stack, deployment environment, and compliance requirements in minutes through a dynamic survey directly or through integrations.
This means that by providing relatively limited details about your application directly or via integrations with systems of record, SD Elements’ built-in logic can automatically identify and help prioritize your next steps. The guidance it provides is also refined as you add information over time.
Step 2: Expert Assessment
SD Elements’ advanced decision-making engine automatically identifies risks, threats, and potential weaknesses based on the information gathered.
It then classifies the overall risk according to your predefined security and compliance policies, so you can take a risk-based approach to managing applications without compromising time to market.
Step 3: Recommendations
SD Elements translates requirements into recommendations and controls which are seamlessly integrated with issue trackers such as Jira, VersionOne, or Azure Boards.
SD Elements draws from an always-evolving content library with thousands of recommendations, including code samples and test cases.
This library is mapped to regulatory standards from all over the world, ensuring your compliance recommendations stay current.
Step 4: Validation and Reports
SD Elements also tracks the security task completion, by integrating with testing tools like Veracode, Checkmarx, and Fortify.
Your dashboard helps you view quick metrics and instantly generates compliance status reports.
You can also drill down into each project, helping your security experts focus only on the most critical issues.
