In 3 bullets, summarize why this professional or team deserves recognition:
• We believe in comprehensive security and secure SDLC. SoftServe’s Security Experts have been protecting businesses and making life difficult for hackers since 2008. By providing assessment services, security threat modeling, and penetration testing, SoftServe ensures a secure Software Development Lifecycle, and eliminates security vulnerabilities. Assessments are performed by looking deep into an application itself, including code review and legacy technology review, as well as modeling for potential security issues and hidden threats.
• We adopt the best security practices and develop them – then we share them and educate. Apart from the Security team, other SoftServe groups are involved in the process to ensure comprehensive security at all levels: for example, SoftServe R&D Office includes Threat Labs, Software Architecture Group ensures Secure Design, Software Development Office – competence development, Training Management Group – conducts trainings on security. SoftServe’s proprietary well-documented and proven set of Practices, Activities and Tools for achieving solution security goals is called Abiliton Secure SDLC (consists of 6 phases: Preparation, Requirements Assessment & Analysis, Design, Implementation, Verification, and release).
• Hundreds of companies from start-ups to large enterprises trust SoftServe to ensure the security of their Applications, Internet of Things, Enterprise, or even Corporate IT Security Policy:
“The successful delivery of the project in a relatively short amount of time and on budget resulted not only in a clear and concise security analysis and overview, but several GB of log files that help us identify attack vectors. We were able to meet the requirements of our customers, identify areas to improve, as well as obtain patterns that can be analyzed to prevent future exploits,” David Martineau, CTO, ContractPal.
