Research has shown that fixing security problems early in the development cycle is more efficient and cost-effective than the traditional penetrate-and-patch model. McAfee Foundstone’s software and application security services allow our consultants to identify detrimental software security problems — often before the software is even built.
Software engineering studies show that approximately 80% of security bugs and flaws are introduced during the early stages of software development, often before even a single line of code is written. Using threat modeling, we can typically identify over 75% of the architectural flaws, enabling development teams to prevent implementing insecure software.
Foundstone consultants are expert reviewers and have helped a number of major software, financial services, and other companies develop software security methodologies. We have significant experience reviewing a wide variety of software, including portals, e-commerce sites, financial services and health care applications, and desktop and developer software.
Foundstone’s capability in secure application development originates with our software and application security service (SASS) consultants, who have performed threat models and source code audits on numerous client applications, as well as their own software. Our SASS consultants worked as development practitioners on commercial enterprise software systems and understand the software development process, as well as why and how security bugs and flaws are introduced.
