Whether we are approached by a start-up brand keen to ensure the highest levels of system security from day one, or an established SaaS business seeking independent software security analysis, our priority remains the same.
Leaving no stone unturned it is our job to ensure clients have a robust product, which is fit for purpose from a security perspective, both at this point in time and if the system was to scale. But that’s not all…
Compliant, safe, secure.
Continually evolving data security legislation means compliance is big business. But our decades of combined system security expertise – including the knowledge of some of the industry’s most respected and accredited brains – stretch far beyond simply ticking a box for regulatory reasons.
Our rigorous approach to software security sees us analyse everything – including a client’s technology platform(s), related business processes and the practices adopted by their employees. This all-encompassing approach to risk analysis is the only way to truly understand the resilience of a system. Think of it as a comprehensive health check – from the inside out!
We’ve also developed our own Security Development Lifecycle (SDLC) model for the software development process, which sees us:
- Capture security requirements
- Plan security in advance
- Ensure technologies are secure by design
- Test early
- Document everything.
Consequently, some of the briefs we’re handed are technically straightforward, whereas the challenging nature of others results in bleeding-edge solutions which drive unparalleled levels of product innovation and business growth with maximum respect for security considerations. Either way, this is our world. You can trust us to deliver.
Our overarching goal is to ensure customers’ get the most from their technology. And we acknowledge that long-term efficiency and business performance will always be hindered if software security is an afterthought. That’s why, at IDS, it’s always front and centre.
We support start-ups with very limited budgets and skill sets, for example, from their earliest conceptual stages and incubation, through to them completing CREST penetration testing and beyond. Whether we build the platform as a bespoke solution provider or work on a consultancy basis, our eye never comes off the security ball. We’re also relied upon by multinational brands, whether they’re worried about the integrity of their products or are simply keen to look for holes.
