Security issues are often identified in the last phases of software development, making it hard and expensive to fix them. By applying secure development practices like threat modeling, code analysis, offensive testing, and continuous monitoring, issues can be identified at the first possible moment. Our Agile Security Risk Management approach will help you identify and fix problems throughout the software development life cycle.
Vulnerabilities can occur on many layers in your system. Many of them are hard to spot with penetration testing or security audits only. Integrating security tooling in your build process will help you find weak spots like third party vulnerabilities and coding problems before deploying your system to production. Applying hardening scripts and automated audits will make sure all your deployments meet your requirements.
The best way to remain in control is not by fixing security risks, but by preventing them. This requires a change in mindset. Besides looking at changes from a 'will this work' perspective, your teams should also think about 'what could possibly go wrong'. We can help your teams to learn to think like a hacker and spot security issues early by using threat modeling.
The classical approach towards security no longer works in Agile environments. Security should be considered as just another quality attribute ánd should be taken into account throughout the entire development process.
Only by considering security and privacy implications from an initial idea throughout the last deployment step, you can remain in control in the current, fast-changing IT landscapes. We provide consultancy services and training in the agile security approach that will help you implement the SecDevOps principles.
Security is often a neglected part of Continuous Delivery. Testing in the continuous delivery pipeline is often focused on integration testing, basic error testing and evaluating happy flows. Thorough security testing should be done sooner rather than later to prevent surprises and costly repair actions.
Many security tests can be reliably automated. Known vulnerabilities in third-party libraries, coding bad practices, insecure configurations, and other commonly encountered flaws all can easily be identified by tools. Integrating these tools into the build pipeline enables you to automate security testing of your deployments.
We enhance the competences of your teams to start using security tools in the development cycle. This allows you to identify any security issues as early as possible without the need for expensive and elaborate security tests late in the process.
Integrating security tooling in the continuous delivery pipeline is one of the cornerstones of Agile Security and Risk Management (ASRM). With security-enabled Continuous Delivery you can improve the overall quality of your software, increase the speed of the development process and reduce cost while remaining in control of the security risks.
