Software Application Security Consulting

Software application security solutions designed to increase your cyber resilience, protect your data and customers, and maintain governance and compliance

End-to-end software application security for a more resilient business

Cyber security has become one of the top concerns for enterprises around the world. According to Gartner, by 2023, 75% of organizations will restructure risk and security governance to address new cyber-physical systems and collective IT, OT, IoT, and physical security needs—a big jump from fewer than 15% doing so today. Organizations are looking ahead, investing in software application security tools that are more sensitive and focusing on striking a balance between response and detection versus prevention.

At a time when threats seem to be multiplying and growing in magnitude and regulations along with them, security can seem like an ever-moving target. Taking a proactive security posture is not only about protecting your data, customers, and business operations—it’s also about maintaining good governance and compliance and intelligent risk management.

Why invest in software application security solutions?

We provide end-to-end security solutions that protect your most important assets, shield your organization from scrutiny, and give you the confidence to act on the opportunities of the day. We’ll help you navigate the entire security landscape by leveraging our software consulting expertise in two key arenas: Identity & Access Management and Threat Mitigation & Compliance.

IDENTITY & ACCESS MANAGEMENT

Why invest Software Application Security Consulting

Deploy agile and scalable IAM solutions

As businesses grow, so does the technological footprint. To keep up with your scaling technology and user needs, you need applications that streamline your network and operations while addressing your identity and access management needs. Any of these symptoms are a sign that you should invest in software application security:

  • Residual orphaned accounts that retain access after the user leaves
  • A lack of segregation between duty controls
  • No cross-platform or app authentication (single-sign-on or SSO)
  • Deficient and/or manual provisioning and deprovisioning practices
  • Complex directory architecture managing multiple domains
  • Residual orphaned accounts that retain access after the user leaves
  • A lack of segregation between duty controls
  • No cross-platform or app authentication (single-sign-on or SSO)
  • Deficient and/or manual provisioning and deprovisioning practices
  • Complex directory architecture managing multiple domains

The benefits of investing in identity and access management

By working with top software consultants with expertise in application security best practices, you’ll gain a tailored Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that allows your business to implement adequate security policies across all systems, platforms, applications, and devices. Beyond enhancing your overall security and maintaining compliance with various data protection regulations, you can achieve quick and lasting wins:

  • More secure and resilient operations, infrastructure, and teams
  • Improved user experiences
  • Improved regulatory compliance
  • Reduced overall IT operational costs
  • Greater business agility

THREAT MITIGATION & COMPLIANCE

Software application security solutions that build cyber resilience

Every organization has its own unique set of objectives, compliance requirements, policies, procedures, and technological footprint—which translates into your own set of threats, vulnerabilities, and risks. Experiencing any of these issues might indicate you’re missing the mark in assessing your unique risk landscape:

Threat mitigation warning signs:

  • Running business-critical applications on the legacy stack
  • Previous attacks that exploited known vulnerabilities
  • Compromised, lost, or stolen application data
  • Repeated ransomware infections

Compliance flags:

  • History of fines or penalties from regulatory bodies
  • High cost of changing or evolving architecture post-audit
  • Loss of certifications necessary to operate your business
  • Unauthorized access to privileged information

Application security software success stories

A modern identity management solution upgrades access to a trusted drug testing system

Our medical device manufacturing partner was looking for a way to streamline their digital offering and improve user experiences for customers and employees. Part of our solution was to upgrade the product with Federated Identity Management (FIM) login support to enable users to access features via Single Sign On (SSO). By creating an Identity Server, we introduced SSO, eliminating user frustration points and paving the way for future product integrations.

Software Application Security Consulting Success Stories

The 3 pillars of resilient software application security solutions

To achieve true, wide-ranging operational security, you need to take a holistic view that comprises all the facets and stakeholders in your business. As part of our software application security services, we address key areas that help organizations face the challenges of today and the future:

Training and education

Your security boundary is only as strong as its weakest link. From employees to C-suite execs, everyone needs to be on the same page regarding security measures, practices, and response procedures. We provide the necessary training and exposure to identify potential threats and reduce response times.

Governance and procedures

A holistic security strategy that encompasses governance, compliance, and procedures in multi-team environments requires visionary top-down leadership. We partner with your team to establish governance, identify leaders, and embed processes that support the development and maintenance of security solutions.

Best-in-class solutions

Complex enterprise IT ecosystems require equally sophisticated tooling. Your challenge is identifying the gaps and filling them with intelligently procured security solutions that don’t blow your budget and address your particular risk profile. This requires experience and wide-ranging industry knowledge—and that’s where we come in.
