Secure Software Development

We improve software development methods by introducing new security-enhancing elements in existing development methods, such as Scrum. These elements can be tailored to customer needs. Some of the elements we have introduced in the past include threat workshops, exploratory reviews and developer coaching in secure practices. We provide internal support and guidance for the development team, sparring with the team to ensure a secure software delivery.

Provided as a continuous service, secure software development not only steers the developers in a single project’s information security issues, but also helps improve their architectural solutions and software development processes. Individual projects can be supported by assessing the maturity of the developer team’s security solutions and practices. These assessments provide observations that are relevant also to the organisation's other development projects.

Bug Bounty Program

Most organizations have an increasing number of applications and servers to serve customers, partners, and employees, creating a complex environment to manage. A private bug bounty program will assess your security with a black-box view, like a cybercriminal looking for the weakest points.  A bug bounty program does not entirely replace the need for more traditional assessments or security engineering work. However, it cost-effectively complements them and helps you improve security in an agile manner.

We will set up the bug bounty program for you. We work together with the leading bug bounty platforms, and our expert team helps define the digital boundaries where external hackers are allowed to operate. Our professional bug hunters, with proven skills and track records, will search your systems for anything that a malicious actor could use. Once a weakness is found and confirmed, we report it and help you fix the flaw.

Continuous Vulnerability Status Measurement for Web Applications and Computing Platforms

Applications need to be developed fast and sometimes speed is the enemy for quality and security. What about the server software you just purchased? Is it free from plaguing security vulnerabilities that can cause you expensive downtime? And does your IT service provider install security fixes swiftly after they have been released?

By applying continuous web application scans for applications and computing platforms that are accessible via Internet, your organization can be assured that most obvious software vulnerabilities are discovered and reported. Continuous scanning significantly reduces the probability of production failures and other disturbances. Timely reporting ensures that responsible parties can execute prioritized remedy actions over your most critical computing assets.

We measure your web applications’ threat exposure from an information security point of view. When vulnerability scans are continuous and automated, the effectiveness of Vulnerability Management process is also measured as a whole, by revealing the remedy rate of found vulnerabilities.

Our service covers  the canning technology and its maintenance including required license, regular vulnerability scans of the selected applications IT infrastructure platforms, and reports on the results as well as 24/7 support and contact point in Nixu Support Center.
