Software Security Assurance (SSA) is the process of ensuring that software is designed to operate at a level of security that is consistent with the potential harm that could result from the loss, inaccuracy, alteration, unavailability, or misuse of the data and resources that it uses, controls, and protects. As organizations worldwide increase their reliance on software controls to protect their data and computing environments, Software Security Assurance becomes increasingly important and costly for most companies.
The high cost associated with data leakage, security incidents, investigations and the increasingly complex regulations are some of the main challenges faced by organizations in regarding to software security.
CIPHER’s Software Security Assurance (SSA) helps your organization reduce risk associated to non-secure coding (intentional or not), as well as complying with application security requirements. We follow OWASP Software Security Assurance Process (OSSAP) standards and follow a complete Secure Development Lifecycle (SDLC) program. We identify and categorize the information that is to be contained in the software and perform a comprehensive security evaluation on each software review or audit. This allows us to find and remove exploitable vulnerabilities within applications and source code; or prevent their introduction in the first place. This approach protects your business from financial loss, business disruption, brand damage and regulatory compliance violations. Software Security Assurance Process (OSSAP) standards to develop in-depth analysis of your applications and codes.
