The best time to fix vulnerabilities is before they are even created

Secure Development

The modern way to build secure systems is to include security in every step of the product development process. Our Secure Development Lifecycle (SDL) approach is based in the industry leading standard IEC 62443-4-1. We can help you with specific details or walk you through the process of implementing a SDL from start to finish.

We firmly believe that secure development isn't something that can be outsourced. Instead we are here to improve the internal capabilities of our customers.


Implementing SDL according to 62443-4-1 is fairly simple in theory. There are 46 different requirements that your development team needs to meet in addition to their regular work. Our approach seamlessly integrates, for instance, with information security systems compliant with ISO 27001 and IEC 62443 standards, ensuring a consistent and comprehensive security.


It can be difficult to make the secure development processes part of the regular routines of the developers. It's not unusual to see companies which have a SDL process in place on paper, but developers don't have enough time or motivation to follow them in practice.
