JE3 Enhances Software Security with Adoption of OWASP SAMM Model

JE3 proudly announces a strategic initiative to strengthen our software development practices through the adoption of the Open Web Application Security Project's Software Assurance Maturity Model (OWASP SAMM). This decision underscores our unwavering commitment to upholding the highest standards of security in the software solutions we provide to your organization.

OWASP SAMM offers a well-defined and measurable framework for organizations to assess and enhance their software security posture. By seamlessly integrating SAMM into our development process, our objective is to elevate the effectiveness of our software security initiatives, ensuring the delivery of even more robust and secure applications.

Key Points:

  • Structured Approach: We will now adhere to SAMM's maturity model, categorizing software security practices into Governance, Construction, and Verification. This structured approach enables a systematic and comprehensive enhancement of our security measures.
  • Business-Centric Security: Aligning security practices with business functions, SAMM adoption ensures prioritization based on the criticality of different business areas. This ensures a targeted and effective security strategy.
  • Measurable Results: SAMM's emphasis on measurement is pivotal. Leveraging provided metrics and KPIs, we aim to quantify the effectiveness of our security initiatives, offering a clear and measurable view of progress over time.

Key features of OWASP SAMM 2.0:

  • Flexible Framework: SAMM 2.0 introduces a more flexible framework, allowing organizations to tailor software security programs to their specific needs and risk profiles. This adaptability is crucial in addressing the dynamic threat landscape.
  • Enhanced Guidance: The new version provides improved guidance on security practices for various development methodologies, accommodating traditional waterfall, Agile, and DevOps. This ensures seamless integration across different development approaches.
  • Benchmarking Capabilities: SAMM 2.0 introduces improved benchmarking capabilities, enabling organizations to compare their software security practices against industry standards. This facilitates a better understanding of maturity levels and areas requiring attention.
  • Integration with DevSecOps: Recognizing the growing importance of DevSecOps, SAMM 2.0 offers enhanced guidance on integrating security into the DevOps pipeline. This aligns security practices with the principles of agility and continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD).
  • Community Collaboration: SAMM 2.0 development involved collaboration from a diverse community of security professionals, practitioners, and experts, ensuring real-world experiences and best practices are incorporated into the framework.
