Secure SDLC Review and Development
The Weakness in web-based applications have rapidly become the target of choice for attackers and application security vulnerabilities have become the top information security issue facing organizations today. As a result, web application and database security have spawned a growing industry of application scanners, database scanners, auditing tools, and web application firewalls; however, there are no silver bullets for application security risks. Application security can be obtained and maintained only through a combination of activities - internal and external testing of applications, source code reviews, database audits, application architecture reviews, continual training of development and security personnel, and implementation of security controls throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Secure Application's Secure SDLC Review and Development service provides an in-depth review of your secure software development lifecycle. This review includes examining the existing security practices within your organization's application security program and comparing them to common best practices for embedding security within the application development lifecycle. Building security in ensures fewer defects are found at release and in production, thus minimizing the need for remediation.
- Applications benefit from stronger security that reduces the likelihood of vulnerabilities being discovered and exploited.
- Building security in enables developers to focus their attention on coding new features instead of fixing security defects.
