Consultancy services for secure-application developments

August 15, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
TVS, a company active in software test and hardware verification solutions, has announced a strategic expansion in its services with the addition of a new application security business section.

asureSECURE will provide consultancy, coaching and testing services that address the need for developing security aware applications that are self-protecting against cyber-attacks when the network boundary is breached.

“TVS asureSECURE solutions build on our core software testing expertise to help organisations develop strategies to secure network infrastructure, system software and client and server side applications,” said Mike Bartley, TVS founder and CEO.

“Security is now a major factor in application development and TVS' consultancy, coaching and test services focus on the complete life-cycle of a project to help our customers save time and money and help them meet stringent application level security requirements,” said Declan O’Riordan, new head of security testing at TVS. “Conventional security investments concentrate on perimeter defences such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, but this network-biased approach is now vulnerable as malicious attackers can outwit and breach perimeter defences to target the applications themselves.”

“Security should be built-in and not added. Companies that don’t take heed and implement security early in the design cycle will be at risk from cyber attacks,” concluded Mike Bartley, TVS founder and CEO.

As part of the asureSECURE security services launch TVS has published two white papers that set out good practice for avoiding security vulnerabilities on any web application project and has organised an event on security and assertive testing:
