Cybersecurity is a critical component in all our development work for government. It is woven into the structure of our DevSecOps teams, resulting in robust and thoroughly tested software components from the outset. Security controls are considered in all our application solutions, making security certifications easier to document and prove during deployment.

We constantly look for ways to innovate our security practices and protect the data and systems we are entrusted with. We have built partnerships with security product vendors to enhance our Risk Management Framework (RMF) application for government systems. For example, we have been working with the Telos product Xacta to speed the processes and data gathering associated with obtaining Authority to Operate (ATO) for our customers’ application systems. Strongbridge is now offering Telos’ Xacta 360® to increase the speed, accuracy, and efficiency of obtaining and maintaining ATO for the government-focused mission applications that we deliver.

Strongbridge holds security certifications, including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and CompTIA Security+. Our security focused solutions applied from the start of every sprint lowers risk and results in trustworthy releases in compliance with government security mandates. Agencies then benefit from the increased robustness of the resulting applications, architectures, and components.

Our DevSecOps approach combines developers, operations staff, and security experts in the entire sprint-based lifecycle. Security requirements are understood, documented, and present in the engineering lifecycle from the start, which makes achieving successful ATOs and delivering more secure applications natural outcomes. Security is not an afterthought or an add-on late in the process.
