Secure SDLC Gap Analysis
Roll Out a Secure and Repeatable Software Development Lifecycle
Security should be incorporated into every part of the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). While organizations have gone to great lengths to incorporate security engineering elements into their SDLC, many don't see a significant improvement in security due to a misalignment of people, processes, and technologies.
“The SDLC analysis equipped us with the specific training, process improvement, and tools usage we needed to close critical gaps in our development process. This was a valuable investment”
— Stan Black, CISO, Citrix
What to Expect from a Secure SDLC Gap Analysis
Because we develop software products ourselves, we understand the challenges and importance of building security into your SDLC. This first-hand experience makes it easy for us to identify weak points and provide actionable advice that reflects our experience and understanding. For organizations that don't want to put their enterprise or customers at risk with an undisciplined or inadequate secure development process, our SDLC Gap Analysis can help you:
- Analyze your SDLC against industry best practices (ISO, NIST, OWASP) and compliance standards
- Identify and fill gaps in security using the right tools, training, and security policies
- Set clear expectations for every member of your software development team
- Create a detailed plan of action with recommendations for improving security and to create a repeatable and effective process for your development team that incorporates security at each phase of the Software Development Lifecycle
Upon completion of a Secure SDLC Gap Analysis, you can expect:
- A diagrammed outline of your current SDLC showing improvement opportunities including security activities, policies, and tools to reduce application security risk.
- A roadmap of specific improvements including the introduction of tools and new security activities, or ways to leverage existing tools and infrastructure.
- A training plan to build internal application security expertise, including recommendations specific to development role and technologies.
- An optional assessment of one or more applications illustrating the type of mistakes being made in production code and driving the need for remediation and continued assessment.
