Software Security
& Privacy Services

*in partnership with SIG
More than 75% of reported security incidents are caused by software mistakes, such as information leakage, execution of unauthorized transactions or service unavailability. These can lead to significant business damage both in reputational as well as in financial terms (by an order of magnitude of millions of euros).

In this type of services we get to the root cause of complex security issues, helping organizations shifting left on security. That is helping them to realise that a system is designed, developed, tested and deployed with security in mind (security by design), introducing the concept as early as possible into the “Develop & Build ” phase of the SDLC. On top of that we provide them with practical strategies and a roadmap for improvement. Additionally we provide constant support and advisory for monitoring the implementation of the identified improvements based on our roadmap. Throughout the duration of either a Software Security & Privacy Assessment or a Monitor project, our source code-based analysis goes from bit to boardroom, providing the right people with the relevant insights.


Software Security & Privacy Assessment

Type of project: One-off

Ensure the right security and privacy
controlsare built into your IT

Day after day in the headlines, we see the consequences of security and privacy issues – and the majority of these incidents are caused by mistakes in software development. While software systems should be designed and built with security and privacy requirements in mind, they rarely are. So how do you know the right security and privacy controls have been built into your software assets? We strongly believe that the answer lies in their source code.
Considering that most of the issues originate from the software itself, it is important that developers understand the notion and value of security and make it an integral part of their work throughout the process. They should be aware of the risks posed while writing code in order to be able to prevent them as soon as possible.
At Code4Thought, we combine our consultant’s leading expertise with the leading tooling of our Sigrid platform to help our clients ensure the security of their data and the privacy of their customers.
Our Software Security and Privacy Assessment service can reveal (current or future) weaknesses in our clients’ software assets and allow from immediate improvement, from source code to infrastructure – as well as providing practical guidance within a plethora of standards, technologies and best practices.

Software Security & Privacy Monitoring and Advisory

Type of project: Constant

Our team leveraging on the use of the Sigrid Vulnerability Scanner offers continuous inspection and coaching, bringing peace of mind to business stakeholders and focus to engineers in the complex world of software quality. Everyone from the CIO to the last developer gets access to integrated and curated findings, priorities, recommendations, metrics and statistics on security and privacy.
Prioritized actions without a flood of violations
Our team of consultants provides you with a prioritized list of clear actions, not a firehose of findings overloading your developers.
Insight from bit to boardroom
By using Sigrid our team provides high-level portfolio overviews of code-level violations as well as deep-dive findings around aspects such as system architecture. Whether it’s the CIO or the last developer, all stakeholders get the appropriate insight.
Analysis from the inside out
A full security audit requires an assessment beginning with the code itself. Our consultants, with the help of our leading tooling, will analyze the source code and identify and prioritize findings.
Vulnerability Scanner
Sigrid performs a full security analysis on source code, identifying and prioritizing issues. Our consultants then translate these findings into recommended actions.
The business case for invest in Secure Coding: Or as we say “Shift Security Left”
At Code4Thought we experience that most of the Security issues originate from the software itself, so it is important for developers to understand the notion and value of security and make it an integral part of their work throughout the process.
Our team of advisors helps organizations and software development teams “Shifting left on Security” that is to design, develop and test their systems with security in mind (security by design). In that way organization can introduce the “Security by Design” concept as early as possible into the “Develop & Build” phase of an application’s Software Development Lifecycle.
With our contribution our clients realise that this does not only consist of a “tools and processes” change, but a cultural one with significant benefits, such as saving time and money for them as well as identifying and resolving more weaknesses that may lead to security vulnerabilities.
