Performed by experienced GSPD software architects to look for risks associated with how software was designed and developed. Our assessment will cover implications that include:
Assessment of dependencies on third party software and where tight integration with a third party platform is required, we might conduct conversations with the technology partner.
Assessment of the capability covering security architecture including sources of both internal and external threats, encryption paradigms, data in storage and data in use, network and application penetration vulnerabilities as well as the capability to comply with industry standards.
An objective assessment of whether the software can support expectations of investors and perform as a financial asset. This may include various levels of code review and interviews with the development team. An appraisement of value can be determined by factoring the cost of development.
An assessment to identify and remediate open source risks so you can be sure that you will receive the best value on a software asset and not be subject to any limitations for its use in a proprietary product.
