Modern application development processes deserve modern application security processes.
Forming a Partnership with Your Development Organization
We've spent the last decade working with development teams, architects, executives, and development process groups to integrate application security activities into software development life cycles. Process models like BSIMM and OpenSAMM are great references, but they are just a starting point. Aspect will carefully analyze your existing capabilities and craft a cost-effective program that's tailored to your organization's culture, processes, and technology.
Defining and Determining your Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
Aspect Security helps you define and tailor appropriate application security activities into your development life cycle. We carry you through threat modeling, defining and developing standard security controls, design and architecture reviews, peer reviews, code reviews, and application penetration testing stages to modernize and bolster your existing structure. Aspect Security can also help you identify and integrate various technologies that facilitate the process, provide standard security controls, facilitate team education and communication, help you detect or avoid vulnerabilities, track your application security program’s progress, and provide meaningful metrics.
Tailoring to the Needs of Your Enterprise
We work with clients who follow different development paradigms, including: Waterfall, Agile, DevOps, as well as hybrid models. We tailor appropriate security activities into your process based on your development paradigm, corporate culture, and tolerance for risk. There is no “one size fits all” application security process that every organization should follow. Significant tailoring and adjustment is required to define application security activities that will be effective for your enterprise.
The Key to Aspect Security's Approach
Aspect Security designs their interventions to impact your enterprise for the long term. The key to making that happen is building in root cause analysis detection and process improvement throughout our methods. Our approach allows your enterprise to determine where most of your problems are being introduced and why. Then the process can self-adjust to focus on improving problem-causing areas, resulting in an efficient process that is cost effective now and in the long-term.
