1. Secure Requirements Review
Before even starting to create architecture for a product or a feature, severe security issues can be introduced.
A skilled Security Engineer needs to ensure that Security Requirements are included, based on product’s target industry, geography and use-cases, enabling Software Architect to make decisions the company won’t regret.
2. Secure Architecture Review
Insecure architecture decisions are highly common and extremely expensive to fix, sometimes requiring years-worth of code to be re-written.
Ensuring that Software Architecture adheres to Security Industry best practices, accounts for product-specific and common security threats, is integral to building dependable software.
3. Secure Coding Training
Software Developers are clever, but often uninformed about common Software Security issues, their root-causes and security best practices.
Educating developers with a Secure Coding Training is an effective way of leveraging your developer’s creativity, engineering skills, and intimate understanding of the product to protect it.
4. Secure Code Review, Testing and DevSecOps
No matter how well trained, Software Engineers work under pressure to deliver features, on time.
Such focus often leads to technical security details being overlooked or sacrificed, either accidentally or to meet deadlines.
Skilled Security Engineers performing manual security code review and testing, focused solely on identifying software weaknesses, are essential to ensure product’s robustness.
Even though most automated security tools are ineffective, select few areas of application security can really benefit from some DevSecOps processes, carefully chosen and tailored to your organization.
SoftSeq offers unique in-house designed solutions that are fine-tuned to integrate with your application, leaving general purpose security tools in the dust.
5. Penetration Testing
Even the most secure application can open up to a hacker if it’s set up and configured insecurely.
Cloud, System, and Network Security are all important aspects that need skilled testing to ensure no loose ends are left.
