Need to automate security risk assessments for your software? We can help.

Built to scale, designed for speed.
This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Do you struggle with inconsistent, manual software risk assessment processes?

You have to assess risks quickly, effectively, and often, so that you can strategically defend your information and software.

It should be simple — but the software risk assessment process is frequently slow and hard to scale.


SD Elements helps you to accelerate your software security risk assessments through automation, so that you can define the risks relevant to your projects more quickly and strategically address them.


You need a better way to support your teams as they manage cyber risk — without disrupting the software development life cycle.

That is exactly what SD Elements was designed to do.


Get clear insight into which tasks you need to prioritize now, as SD Elements automatically categorizes your projects according to their inherent risk.


Save precious time as SD Elements automatically selects appropriate security and privacy controls for your project using a flexible rule-based engine.


Paint the clearest picture of your risk and compliance posture, as SD Elements helps you to standardize continuous control assessment efforts across projects.

So how does SD Elements work?

Step 1: Information Gathering

Using a dynamic survey, SD Elements gathers vital data to help you understand your compliance requirements and more.

Even though you may not have all application information to hand, SD Elements’ built-in logic can use limited details to help you automatically identify your priorities.

Step 2: Expert Assessment

Once risks, threats, and potential weaknesses are automatically identified, based on the data gathered in Step 1, SD Elements then classified your overall risk status.

This is drawn from your own predefined and agreed-upon security and compliance policies, and enables you to take a strategic approach to mitigating application risk, without slowing down releases.

Step 3: Recommendations

Compliance requirements can be tricky to translate into actionable, auditable tasks, but SD Elements does just that – turning them into recommendations and controls. These can be integrated with your current issue trackers, like Jira, VersionOne, or Azure Boards.


SD Elements also leverages our regularly updated content library, maintained by our in-house experts. The library contains best practice examples, and numerous regulatory standards – saving you the time and expense of keeping track for yourself.

Step 4: Validation and Reports

Being able to demonstrate and validate your compliance is crucial. SD Elements helps you confirm security task completion, by integrating with testing tools like Veracode, Checkmarx, and Fortify.


In the product itself, your user-friendly dashboard helps you view quick metrics or create compliance status reports. More detailed reports can also help your security experts to focus their efforts on the most critical tasks at hand.

Did you know that most security incidents occur because of software issues?

According to the Software Engineering Institute, almost 90% of security incidents occur because of exploits against defects in the design or code of software.


By using an automated approach, you can identify and prioritize these defects according to your organization’s security and compliance policies.


Proactively defend against exploitation by automating your software risk assessment processes.
