Software Improvement Group (SIG) has launched a unique platform that integrates its leading technology with its consultants’ leading expertise: Sigrid. A Software Assurance with a Service platform, Sigrid enables IT and business leaders in both private and public sectors to drive their organizational strategies by fundamentally improving the health and security of their software applications.
Technology and Humans Deliver Superior Service
“People trust their lives and careers to technology, but don’t actually have clear visibility into the quality of these applications. SIG offers deep code visibility, an assessment of the status of a software application,” says Luc Brandts, CTO at SIG. “Analysis by our expert consultants then follows, who uncover hidden risks and opportunities in the source code and, based on the purpose of the application, and give advice on how to progress from there.”
SIG begins its engagement with customers by looking at the maintainability of software. Brandts explains, “The level of maintainability indicates your innovation power, the speed at which you can make modifications to your software. That’s essential in today’s digital world, where things are continuously changing. Using the SIG 5-star maintainability rating scale, our research shows that teams working with 4-star applications resolve issues three times faster than those working with 2-star applications.”
Analysis as an Ongoing Service
Rob van der Veer, principal security and privacy consultant at SIG adds, “With the release of Sigrid today, SIG also launches a brand-new add-on, Security with a Service. This add-on enhances SIG’s existing security and privacy offering by providing developers and decision makers with continuous access to issues. We combine the Sigrid platform with the human intelligence of our multidisciplinary team by analyzing the source code in-depth, incorporating code review findings and filtering results from code scanning tools – then adding explanation, prioritization and recommendations. With this new add-on as part of Sigrid, this analysis can also be performed on an ongoing basis and managed through the platform – allowing quick reporting and efficient collaboration with the SIG experts and tool set, taking business context and impact into account. With the increasing importance of privacy and security, Sigrid allows you to monitor continuously and gain control over these hidden risks.”
