Organizations need to comply with existing and new complex regulatory standards such as NIST RMF, HIPAA, and FedRAMP, and large sets of internal policies. Yet, your organization have no consistent and actionable way to translate all these into operational activities. Your teams also struggle to continuously monitor all relevant compliance processes for a given software stack, making audits difficult. Identifying threats and remediating security vulnerabilities is already a difficult process, but proving compliance with regulatory standards brings a new set of challenges.
SD Elements enables and simplifies compliance by providing software development teams with continuous visibility to and traceability of adherence to regulatory standards and internal policies. It captures regulatory requirements for each project and translates them into actionable and auditable tasks that development teams can implement. Embedded within SD Elements is Just-in-Time Training, short training modules that provide contextual learning that developers can apply directly to a work task. Integrations with issue trackers and testing solutions allows organizations to assign and track each task for completion with near real-time auditability.
SD Elements helps your organization manage your authorization to operate (ATO) process by supporting all three ATO pathways – RMF Now, Fast Track ATO and Ongoing Authorization or Continuous ATO (cATO). It shifts ATO certification left by building security and compliance into all stages of software development life cycle. SD Elements helps automate ATO requirement generation by removing non-applicable items automatically and translating ATO control objectives into actionable or prescriptive tasks for developers.
Does your organization build or modify software that must meet specific U.S. Government security standards?
Watch this complimentary eLearning module to learn the fundamentals of Continuous ATO, and how SD Elements supports this process.
SD Elements enables cloud service providers (CSPs) to set up and develop their FedRAMP compliance initiatives in a coherent and structured way. FedRAMP controls are tied to tasks, which provide context for and guidelines on how to implement such controls based on the parameters of projects. SD Elements has compliance reporting capabilities to support the three FedRAMP baseline requirements of Low, Moderate, and High.
According to the Software Engineering Institute, about 90% of reported security incidents result from exploits against defects in the design or code of software.
SD Elements' extensive threat and controls library provides a consistent, comprehensive, and flexible platform to reduce risk in your software.
SD Elements is now listed on the USAF DevSecOps Tools, Pipeline, and Platform Integration and Licensing Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA). When responding to a request from the BOA, your organization can procure SD Elements licenses to support the integration of new, or existing applications.
