Application Remediation

Unlike other security-centric firms that focus on the reporting of vulnerabilities, Denim Group's seasoned development team can also prioritize risks and fix software vulnerabilities that may exist in its customers' applications.

Most internal development teams are experts with coding and application development. Unfortunately, they often have little to no time for remediation, as they are usually tasked for months on actual application development. While they’re building web applications, Denim Group can efficiently remediate any security flaws found in your web applications. Denim Group's consultants are all practicing developers who track the latest software trends and methodology and have the expertise to fix vulnerabilities in the source code. By using Denim Group, you can continue development work while remediation takes place.

How We Approach Remediation

Remediation projects consist of two major types of phases: Planning and Execution. Planning phases lay out a structured approach and agreed-upon expectations for one or more Execution phases, and during the Execution phases, developers actually address vulnerabilities and put the remediated code into production.

Planning Phase
The planning phase is used to establish a structured approach for addressing vulnerabilities and to create a shared understanding of which vulnerabilities are going to be addressed, when they will be addressed and how they will be addressed.

Planning phases consist of three required steps:

  1. Calculate Risk
  2. Determine Level of Effort
  3. Establish Standards

If the development team is using a waterfall approach, a fourth step that can optionally occur during a Planning phase would be to schedule vulnerabilities.

Execution Phase
Execution phases consist of three required steps:

  1. Fix Vulnerabilities
  2. Confirm Fixes
  3. Deploy

If the development team is using an agile approach, an optional first step in an execution phase would be to schedule vulnerabilities.

Why Should You Outsource Remediation?

  1. We understand how to fix vulnerable code quickly and efficiently.
  2. Your internal development team can continue to focus on future development.
  3. We understand how to efficiently check that identified vulnerabilities have been remediated.
  4. We are acutely aware of the latest trends/tools in software remediation.

How We Can Help with Post-Assessment

If your internal team lacks the time or resources, our security team can assist with remediation in several ways:

  1. Our team can handle the entire remediation process from beginning to end.
  2. Members from our Security Team can augment your development staff through our Mentor Program.
  3. We can provide Remediation Strategy Consulting Services for your team.
