Secure and Safe Software

The F-Secure Safe user interface has undergone a major makeover. The stylized hilly terrain featuring trees and clouds has been replaced by tri-panel flat design with security status indicators (red when there is problems and green when everything is fine).

Software is a powerful tool, and the methods we employ it are changing the world. But it’s also vulnerable to threats from malicious actors who seek to exploit weaknesses in order to steal data and create havoc.

To prevent these threats, it is important to integrate security improvements into the software development and test procedures. This means including best practices in security testing, creating a secured development life cycle and stopping flaws through updating and patching software.

For it to be successful it is essential to be inclusive of all stakeholders in the process. It requires a well-defined methodology along with an organizational culture of safety, tools and training that support security in the workflow. This involves establishing and maintaining a trusted component list using threat modeling to determine the risk, communicating security standards to third parties and verifying compliance, using secure coding practices, and leveraging the top tools used by industry professionals, and performing automated or manual vulnerability tests and reviews.

A solid, scalable security system is critical to building solid and reliable software. This is especially true for high-profile systems, such as those in financial services, healthcare automobile industry, and homeland security. These systems need more stringent coding requirements such as those in the MISRA C++ and MISRA C++ coding standards to guard against vulnerabilities that could compromise safety.
