Security Compass Releases New Risk Dashboard Capability in the Latest Version of its SD Elements Platform

SD Elements Version 4.12 Makes it Easy for Organizations to Demonstrate Clear Governance of Software Security and Compliance Activity

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, April 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Security Compass, providing organizations with the knowledge, training, and technology to make software secure, today announced that it has added risk dashboards to the latest release of its flagship product, SD Elements. Version 4.12 of the leading policy to procedure platform now includes a single, aggregated view of risks from software security, infrastructure security, compliance and policy – empowering organizations with the metrics needed to drive risk management and compliance into software development. Security Compass will demo the new risk dashboards along with its automated compliance capabilities at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, April 16-20 in booth #2908.

Featuring robust application security and operational security tools, SD Elements enables large organizations to practice agile and DevOps software development while enforcing risk compliance policies. The risk dashboard feature builds on this pedigree, enabling organizations to create risk policies that provide clear governance throughout the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Action-oriented reports and visualizations make it easy for fast-moving DevOps teams to identify and address compliance problems in applications early, and across business units, saving considerable time and resources. SD Elements enables DevOps teams to move from highly manual security and risk-phase gates, to a more automated approach that doesn’t slow down development.

"Our first-of-its-kind SD Elements platform translates policies to prescriptive, measurable procedures that are used by engineering teams and business units to achieve their security and compliance objectives," said Ehsan Foroughi, Vice President of SD Elements at Security Compass.  "The new risk dashboard feature is our latest innovation that leverages automation for these practices allowing organizations to review the compliance of applications across business units, while rapidly and efficiently delivering technology that is secure by design."

Security Compass has also recently introduced a new usage-based licensing model designed to fit any budget, making it quick and easy for enterprises to adopt SD Elements for their most critical applications. Pricing is based on the number of applications being managed within SD Elements - you only pay for what you use.

Security Compass has been recognized for its unique approach to enforcing security policy and risk management across the software development lifecycle.  The company was announced a winner in two categories for the 14th Annual 2018 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Awards in Application Security and Compliance Innovation and is a finalist for Best Emerging Technology in the SC Media Excellence Awards with winners to be announced during an award gala on April 17 in San Francisco.
