Your code, your process, our expertise

Organizations producing a custom application ecosystem are faced with innumerable risks during the day-to-day creation and maintenance of the software systems. These risks can be introduced at any level of the application stack—from the operating system through to the Javascript libraries running in a client’s browser.

Many teams begin the process of creating these custom applications with only business goals in mind, placing privacy and security in the backlog to be dealt with at a future time. Often, these well-meaning policies lead to snowballing tech debt and a fundamental lack of clarity on the systems, their components, and the potential vulnerabilities each contributes to the overall risk equation of the business, often leading to one of these outcomes:

  • Security Incident - Customer data confidentiality is breached, the integrity of the data is no longer verifiable, or the systems have been removed from operation.
  • Compliance Oversight - The organization’s security posture is assessed by a third party and gaps have been identified.
  • Internal Oversight - Management brings new security requirements and expectations to the development team.

With the help of Layer 8 Security’s DevSecOps experts, you can rely on battle-tested expertise to begin or accelerate your path toward maturing the security of your software ecosystem and alleviate the burden of these new security requirements. We embed within your development team to:

  • Assess the current security posture
  • Identify and compare tool options
  • Integrate new systems into CI/CD pipelines
  • Create policies and procedures
  • Provide training to individual contributors

Layer 8 Security can provide guidance to plan and execute application security initiatives and provide clear, concise recommendations that further reduce the risk to the enterprise. These recommendations extend well past the engagement timeframe and provide a baseline assessment and a roadmap toward a more secure ecosystem, including:

  • Software Assurance Maturity Model (SAMM) Assessment: A visualization of the organization’s current application security maturity level.
  • Tool Recommendations: A comparison of the relevant tools within a security domain, and recommendations based on the specific needs and ecosystem of the organization.
  • Process and Policy Recommendations: Specific guidance provided for the additions to the application security policies of the organization. Includes updating and creating workflows for individual contributors, tool workflow diagrams, SDLC flowcharts, and other forms of process documentation.
  • DevSecOps Roadmap: Starting with the SAMM assessment, and providing a look into the future of the DevSecOps initiatives, the roadmap allows an organization to plan initiatives with minimal impact to normal business operations.

Eliminating all risks from a digital platform while continuing to add customer-focused features is a feat of Sisyphean effort and managing the business and technical risk of an enterprise application ecosystem can be overwhelming to all stakeholders when this is the express goal.

When executing a DevSecOps initiative with Layer 8 Security, you can feel confident you’re taking measured steps toward closing risk gaps and providing a more secure experience for your customers.

We recognize the complexity of the modern Secure SDLC and operate by a simple philosophy for the adoption of DevSecOps at any organization: Your code, your process, our expertise.
