SD Elements – your solution for identifying, managing and mitigating risk, without increasing your costs or time to market.
The constant pressure to release products quickly is significant. So too is the pressure of ensuring those products are secure.
Expectations are high, and demonstrating compliance is critical.
Current strategies to maintain build velocity and increase security include manual threat modeling, secure coding standards, and security requirements, but these methods just don’t scale.
They require scarce security and development resources, and can take weeks to complete. Adding the output and controls to spreadsheets for development is unreliable, not to mention difficult to track across dozens – or hundreds – of projects.
Our flagship product, SD Elements, is the solution to these issues.
It automatically identifies threats and risks and translates those into actionable controls that can be added to your project requirements.
Below are just some of the benefits that it offers:
Even if details are limited, SD Elements’ built-in logic identifies and helps you prioritize your next steps, and it will further refine its guidance over time when you add more detailed information.
SD Elements’ advanced decision-making engine automatically identifies risks, threats, and potential weaknesses, drawing on the information gathered during Step 1.
By ranking your overall risk relative to your company’s security and compliance policies, SD Elements enables you to take a more strategic approach to managing applications.
Translating threats, risks, and compliance requirements into specific, actionable recommendations and controls, SD Elements seamlessly integrates these with your existing trackers, including tools like VersionOne, Azure Boards, or Jira.
Leveraging its regularly updated content library, SD Elements draws on thousands of recommendations from all over the world. These are mapped to regulatory standards and are translated into specific, actionable tasks for your team.
Easily validate that security controls are underway, or complete, with SD Elements, as it integrates with testing tools, such as Veracode, Fortify and Checkmarx.
Capture insights and snapshots from your dashboard, or create compliance status reports in seconds.
SD Elements also offers detailed analytics for all projects, so your security experts can focus their efforts where they are most needed.
