SD Elements & Tasktop Sync

Connecting Security to Development

Security Compass provides technology that allows development organizations to seamlessly add security requirements and compliance standards into existing Application Lifecycle Management practices and tools, without changing the way software delivery is handled.

Security Compass has partnered with Tasktop to offer Tasktop Sync to its customers. Tasktop Sync provides fully-automated, enterprise-grade synchronization between SD Elements and the most widely used tools used for software development and delivery These integrations further enhance your organization’s ability to add security directly into the development process by enabling the integration of software delivery tools all across the software delivery process--from planning, PMO and operations functions, to development and testing. This means that software delivery team members, in different disciplines and using disparate systems, can collaborate and synchronize efforts resulting in a more efficient and secure software delivery process.


  • Security requirements and compliance standards automatically added to the software development process
  • Seamless, real-time integration with and synchronization to the most widely deployed tools used in the software development and delivery process


  • Security becomes an integral part of the process—not an afterthought
  • Connecting stakeholders across software delivery disciplines improves efficiency and security
  • Best-of-breed, open source, legacy and enterprise Agile tools can be utilized more effectively as part of a secure software delivery process
