Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Security Compass announces interoperability of SD Elements, the first secure application lifecycle management tool (SALM) with HP Fortify Static Code Analyzer and HP WebInspect security solutions - enabling organizations to create securely coded mobile, web and client applications at the requirements stage. The interoperability enables the mapping of HP Fortify Static Code Analyzer (SCA) and HP WebInspect scan results with SD Elements requirements.
“HP Fortify is a market leader in software security, and we’re proud to provide enhanced visibility via interoperability with SD Elements,” said Rohit Sethi, VP of Product Development at Security Compass. “High application vulnerability rates are a persistent problem in the software industry. With high-risk threats like SQL injection, authorization issues and parameter manipulation manifesting in real data loss every year, it’s clearly a serious problem that is in need of a root cause solution. In order to eliminate these threats, which put corporate data and consumers at risk every day, developers must build security into their applications from the start - and that’s what SD Elements lets them do. This interoperability with HP Fortify SCA and HP WebInspect allows clients to automatically verify certain requirements and understand where additional manual testing is necessary.”
Instead of fixing application flaws after the fact, SD Elements enables developers to create secure code from the start, and prevent vulnerabilities from ever existing. Developers who use SD Elements can reduce high-risk vulnerabilities in their applications by as much as 97 percent. The platform offers a number of important features, including the industry’s largest database of software security requirements and test cases, detailed reporting, customizable content, task prioritization, code samples, embedded training and constant security updates.
The secure application lifecycle management needs of organizations are increasingly inherent in their everyday life. Compliance (PCI, HIPAA), secure coding, best practices in the software development lifecycle are continually at the forefront of companies’ minds. Working with leading solutions like HP Fortify SCA and HP WebInspect, we can help our clients create and validate a method of deploying secure software while building security in.

About SD Elements:
SD Elements is a Secure Application Lifecycle Management solution (SALM) that gathers customized, secure application coding knowledge in one place. It is the only Software and Software as a Service of its kind. Development, Architecture, and Security Teams get guidance through contextual code snippets, videos, tutorials and external security industry references before the first key stroke of code is typed. SD Elements prescriptively tells you how to code securely based on your project's application stack by providing an interactive checklist of secure coding task recommendations, so that by the time your application is ready to be tested for secure coding errors, the testing turns into a validation of already implemented secure coding practices. Scalability and consistency in secure coding practice is realized from design to implementation. SD Elements prescriptively tells you how to implement security controls and transforms your Application Lifecycle Management into Secure Application Lifecycle Management.
