Secure software development lifecycle

The last ten years of cyber security of proven that security cannot be tested in to software products. Software development and modern IT organizations are continuing to evolve their development cycle to include continuous testing and remediation of vulnerabilities, as the code is being developed. We call this Software Security Assurance.

Increasingly, enterprises are finding that the most effective and cost-efficient way to reduce and eliminate software security risks is during development. We call this, Software Security Assurance (SSA).


Integration with existing development tools like Eclipse and Microsoft® Visual Studio provides seamless security testing. Security vulnerabilities can also be submitted directly to HP Application Lifecycle Management and other quality assurance tools to be tracked throughout the development process.


When IT Security and Development teams collaborate to find and fix software vulnerabilities, software is more resilient to withstand threats and attacks and time to market deadlines are met reducing remediation costs.

"Comprehensive software security involves a combination of people, processes, and technologies, and it almost always requires some change to the way the organization operates. As software security comes of age, using a maturity model will only help to accelerate your enterprise security initiative."
