It’s estimated that up to 90 percent of reported security incidents result from defects in the design, architecture, or insecure coding practices of software. That means the best approach to application security is to make sure they’re secure from the start.
Telos security consultants will apply rigorous industry standards for software security assurance such as OWASP at the beginning of the SDLC to minimize or eliminate them as a source of threat to your IT environment. For existing applications, we perform authenticated and unauthenticated vulnerability assessments to confirm that the application and its infrastructure (such as servers, databases, and other elements) are free from issues like configuration problems and missing security patches.
Software security assurance solutions and services we offer include:
You benefit from proven approaches to software and application security through our use of established software security assurance models and frameworks. You also benefit from efficiencies gained through best-of-breed tools that streamline and automate tasks during software development, testing, and operation.
Tools and techniques we use include black-box, white-box, and grey-box testing, code reviews, and both internal and external penetration testing of your application. Our work includes a comprehensive report on uncovered vulnerabilities, including whether the vulnerabilities are discoverable or exploitable from authenticated or non-authenticated scenarios.
Including software security assurance methodology at the beginning of the software development life cycle (SDLC) is the most effective path to secure applications. It’s also the least expensive, because you’re stopping flaws from being built in rather than fixing them after the fact.
We use established software security assurance models and frameworks such as the Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM), BSIMM3 Scorecard, and Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI).
