Security is all About Allowing Authorized Access Only.
When you are working on Web, you application is more vulnerable
and most interestingly, it is more vulnerable from your trusted users.
To make your application bullet proof especially when you are working in medical domain, we take the following strategy
- We perform a complete SDLC Gap analysis for security, since we believe security practices must be built-in your SDLC process. We provide on spot targeted trainings related to security to your development, QA and Configuration/Infrastructure staff for application development, testing and deployment including IIS, Operating Systems and Databases Servers
- Our Architect(s) work closely with your development staff to understand application architecture and design, especially the application security implementation. See Architecture and Design Review
- Our security experts run IBM Appscan the penetration security testing software to analyze most of the potential security leakages in the application
- Our Architect will help your developers and Infrastructure team to fix all the security issues identified by AppScan application
- Our Architects manually review code for any potential security threads in the application
SECURE SDLC Gap Analysis
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.
What to Expect from a Secure SDLC Gap Analysis
Our Architects mostly over 20 years of Software development experience, so we understand the challenges and importance of building security into your SDLC. This first-hand and vast experience makes it easy for us to identify weak points and provide actionable advice that reflects our experience and understanding. For organizations that do not 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
Architecture and Design Review
Secure Software Begins with Robust Design
Conducting an architecture and design review will uncover vulnerabilities and provide detailed recommendations for building, improving, or re-engineering your design.
We identify weaknesses in requirements and architecture by analyzing common and platform-specific vulnerabilities. At the end of the review, we document our analysis and recommendations, ensuring the impact and risk of each recommendation is clearly understood in a manner that you can use to quickly eliminate or mitigate the threats.
Our Three-Step Design Review Methodology
Identify High Risk Areas. Our experts identify the application’s attack surface and various entry points to determine the associated threats with each one.
Identify flaws and damage potential. This phase will identify flaws and weaknesses in design components (i.e. communication protocols, database choices, application server configurations, etc.) We then devise recommendations on how to architect, build, or deploy the application more securely and documenting trade-offs for each recommendation. Each change may address multiple threats.
Deliver concise security recommendations. Once we know where your architectural weaknesses are, we gather additional information to help you understand how to address each threat. Since all threats do not need to be mitigated, we take into consideration (where possible) your environment and objectives, to provide actionable and substantive change.
